OnTheTrail (418) - Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2016
On tap at the brewpub. Aroma and taste were malty with moderate citrus, some other hop notes of fruit and pine. Not intense hops. Might be better by itself rather than as part of a flight.

On tap at brewery in Falls Church. Pours copper with an off white head. Fresh citrus aroma with dank pine resin. Flavor is citrus, tropical fruit, with grapefruit zest and pine finish. Been wanting to try this one for a while and it didnt disappoint.

Sample at Industry Night at HomeBrewCon. Orange amber color white head. Huge citrus and tropical fruitiness. Pretty tasty beer, but oddly the server wouldnt allow me to try this beer until I tried his saison first.

JDBaker11058 (2008) - Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Appearance: clear deep orangey copper, with half a finger of creamy light tan head and good lacing. Aroma: bright citrus, heavy on the orange, with definite additional notes of grapefruit, blood orange, and light pineapple, maybe some marmalade. Taste: citrusy for sure, but complemented with pineapple, mango, caramel, toffee, and even a hint of vanilla. Finish: dry but not overly bitter; the hops linger in the flavor but dont kill the palate . Notes: Best by far of the beers I tried there. Full palate but not overly so. Great drinking. Draught at the brewery.

nearbeer (5090) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Draft pint at the Nats ballpark. Darkish copper with a small ring of foam. Nose is orange toffee, pineapple, vanilla, earthy molasses and some resin. Tastes of the same stuff with a dryer finish of resin and citrus zest. Light-medium body is to the sweet side for an IPA. Medium carbonation is nice.

Sampler at the pub. Smelling this from about a foot away. Good citra aromas. Tropical pineapple flavors. Decent body behind it. Could drink a lot of this.

dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Draft at Black Squirrel. Pours reddish amber, fairly dark for an IPA, with haze of white bubbles. Aroma is very resinous: piney Citra hops with notes of pineapple, juicy lychee, and sweet malt. Great. Taste is pine and mango juice with honey-like malts, very drinkable. Some alcohol heat. Sweet and malty finish. Good.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2016 On draft. They?re not kidding with the "orange" part. Some orange aroma, but lots and lots of orange flavor, kind of more orange-plus-tea than orange fruit or juice. Toffee malty finish. Clean and crisp. Solid.
