Taste is citrus, pine, flowers and hay. Light body and easy to drink. Nice IPA. mar (5457) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Crisp gold/amber with a thin layer of cream froth. Nose is fresh florals, grapefruit, and lightly sticky. Very easy on the palate, refreshing burst of bright hops upfront followed by stickiness, bitter, and a clean finish. kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Nice amber color with a bright orange tint. Huge citrus nose that stays around because the foamy white hear lasts so long. Medium body with a fruity orange taste upfront and a sharp bitter finish. Quite good by the lake! rougeau13 (3280) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Clear golden with a big, puffy, cream colored head. Lacing is substantial. Aroma of citrus, caramel, and pine. The taste is malty and fruity with a mild bitterness and mild woody character. Medium bodied and dry. Definitely not a hop bomb, but a good, solid, well balanced beer. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Not being a fan of the style, I still wanted to do my part. Really lovely nose and very pretty to look at in the glass. Good hopiness but I could not discern any of the orange.

bottle picked up from midway mart. poured gold/orange with a white head. aroma was orange, cream sickle, and a bouquet of citrus notes. Flavor was orange zest, pine, Josh Hamilton’s tears, Yu Darvish sweat, and a slight hint of caramel. body was light and with fizzy carbonation. Maverick34 (3393) - New York, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Bottled. Pours an orangey clear amber. Strong floral aroma. Nice clean hops taste and citrus finish. degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle. For starters, I am giving an arbitrary extra point overall for aging a beer on Louisville Sluggers. Nice. Now...pours a gorgeous orange-gold with a creamy, sticky head; the color is so intense it almost glows. Nose is pretty typical west coast IPA -- herbs, resin, and grapefruit. Very hoppy on the front of the tongue, with a cooler, maltier midpalate; the citrus notes are reminiscent of Texas Ruby Red Grapefruit, which is appropriate. Finishes long and tingly -- I would have liked a bit more carbonation, but that’s a minor quibble. Pretty tasty. Dixonian (1657) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bright golden brew with some fluffy white head. Lots of biscuit and bready malt in the nose with some grapefruit and pine. Flavor is more biscuit malt with a weak hop bite, primarily grapefruit. Way overpriced (I paid more for a bomber of this than Endeavour!) but with 100% of the proceeds going to Operation Homefront it’s hard to complain. Underwhelming.
