This poured a bright orange color with a cream colored head. Aroma was bright citrsuy orangy hops with faint to medium vanilla in there as well. Flavor was just perfect for what this was supposed to be, straight up juicey oranges, hop bitterness and vanilla. Orange hopsicle, lovely.

Sample at the brewery side during the bottle release on 6/25/11. Clear amber pour with a thin white head. Creamy vanilla nose with orange zest and a bit of hop. Orange shows up in the flavor first, but vanilla follows closely behind before a dry, bitter hop finish. Tastes like a creamsicle minus a lot of the sweetness.
