Pour on tap at OB HMLS, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, grapefruit, orange peel, hints of biscuit, bread, hints of spice into a bit of slight floral notes. Taste is a mix of biscuit, caramel into a bit of orange, orange peel, some orange juice, hints of earth, spice and floral notes.

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy orange with a short head. Grassy and resinous American hops with acidic citrus pulp. Medium body, medium sweetness with assertive bitterness and acidic grip. Malt is thin and shaky, carbonation doesnt do much, it ends up smelling like a humid brewery: raw and grassy and minty toothpaste hops, with equally raw and grainy malt, theres your Cracklin Oat Bran cereal, now that youve brushed your teeth, have a glass of orange juice with your cereal. Drink this stuff for breakfast at least, to get the true effect.

bb (8971) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Slightly hazy orange-amber beer with a cream head. Grapefruit and light pine aroma. Grapefruit and citrus flavor. Medium bodied. Grapefruit and citrus lingers with light pine and light earth.

Bomber. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small white head. A nice nose of oranges, dry husky malts. Sweet, bigger Amarillo, oranges, bitterness throughout, more earthy dry malts. I guess my only complaint is that the Munich especially is getting in the way here, too dusty and earthy to be as clean as it could be. But overall this is solid.

onceblind (8900) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2013
Hazy golden with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of ruby red grapefruit zest with an underlying grapefruit malt. Just from the aroma I would give this to a Texas born hop head. Flavor very well matches. Nice ruby red grapefruit tone, but with a light hoppy bitterness that doesnt dominate; bitterness is definitely there but its mild overall, instead opting for the natural twang of the grapefruit. Pale grain and subtle caramel undertones.

downender (8481) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle. Amber in colour, with a slight, white, head and moderate fizziness. Sweetish, apricot and peach aroma, with a touch of floral hop. Flavour had plenty more citrus character, crisp malts and a dry finish. Good.

drowland (8475) - Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2017
9/9/16. On tap at Taphouse, Savannah. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Okay aroma, light citrus, pale malts. Better flavor, tropical fruits, pineapple, blood orange, dank, just enough malt to back it up. Tasty.

laiti (8249) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Draught @ La Jolla Brewing Company. Aroma has orange juice and tropical fruits. Flavour has orange, grapefruit and some malt. Also mild, sweet berry juice tones in the finish. Decent.

nimbleprop (8077) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 11, 2014
12oz pour at City Taphouse DC. Very hazy gold with some lacing, white head. Nose has a lot of citrus peel, a little potpourri, oranges, tangerines, some grass, a little flower pollen. Flavor is fairly well balanced, lightly sweet, light honey, bright orange juice, some nectarine. A bit too watery.

jredmond (8049) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Vin, I believe shared with Pat, Pj, Dave, Sean and Judo. Pours a light hazy orange body with not much head, some minor lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and bitter citric hop. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium with notes of citrus fruits, citra hop, lemon peel and spice. Ok pale ale.
