GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Tap at the brewpub. Cloudy deep tea amber pour. Wispy head. Chewy, hoppy nose. Walnut and toffee. Taste is nutty, very oily. Palate quite aggressively bitter and nutty. Dont get the orange whip aspect. Not as soft as the Two Hemispheres. Reminds me more of SN Celebration. Fianc said she got some orange creamsickle out of it.

solidfunk (8639) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Impressive and unexpected IPA. Orange whip is exactly whats going on here with some zesty tangerine, a little booze and some light pine. Pours deep orange with OK head and lacing. Very bitter finish. Tap at Right Proper.

nimbleprop (8176) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 4, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2011 Growler pour. Looks horrendous, like iced tea. Zero head, muddy looking body. Big citrus nose, oranges, tropical fruits, lime zest. Flavor is kinda blah, some orange zest, lemon juice, dough, tropical fruits, pineapple. The malt backbone is missing. Tastes like fruity iced tea.7-2-5-2-10******************Re-rate from a 4oz pour at the Lupulin Reunuless at RFD DC. Pours a hazy copper amber with a creamy white head. Nice, hoppy aroma, C hops, orange zest, pine, light malt, lightly metallic. A little maple in the flavor, zesty hops, sweet caramel, oranges, grapefruit, pine. Finish is a little creamy, zesty and refreshing. 7-4-8-4-14
