Courtesy of jdubFL, wow! thanks Justin! Growler poured out clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma is IIPA like with fresh rich citrus, pine and grassiness and then a mild malt like sweetness. The taste is yummy with fresh rich citrus flavors, some pine hop bitterness, spicy rye notes, some drying malt roastiness and a thin layer of sweet maltiness. These notes all head off into the finish with the addition of a pleasing black tea like sensation that brings the whole thing together. This beers is fresh, rich citrus, robust, pummeling hops and yet manages to create a semblance of balance too. Wow! I need a keg or two of this. nimbleprop (8830) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 7, 2010
12oz bottle pours a hazy, orange red with zero head. Smells like hand soap, oranges, rose wine, flowers. Flavor is bitter oranges, soapy, white port. Finish is bitter and astringent. Kind of gross. drfabulous (8683) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 30, 2013
12 ounce thanks to BlowOffTube. Orange and yeasty. Slightly sticky. A slight bit of pepper, though by no means overpowering. Like all Shorts beers, odd and different. radagast83 (8533) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2011
At Short’s Brewing Monster Tap Takeover at Churchkey. Poured a Ruby orange color with a small white head. Aroma was a touch citrus, spice notes, something familiar that I still can’t quite put my finger on - probably just the blood oranges. Beer was certainly not as hot as I would have imagined based on the ABV. SudsMcDuff (8523) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2015

Growler sample at Muckfest 2009 Day 2. Pours clear amber with a medium tan head. Orange notes with some malt, a good amount of hop and some spice. Spicy and orangy flavor up front with a bitter grapefruit finish. PhillyCraft (8041) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Cambridge with Bill and Tom, Pours cloudy orange golde with not much white head. Notes are heavy booze and sour blood orange. Bitter and boozy. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Growler. Thanks, BVC! Pours deep muddy brownish orange with a loose ring of grayish bubbles. No lace. Tons of sharp blood oranges hit you on the nose right away. A little sweeter and tangier than Campari, for sure, but you still brace yourself for that bitter jolt that you know is coming. Creamy medium body, and then the onslaught of flavor varieties starts--sweet pepperiness, dark spiciness, earthy notes, black bread, but, most of all, orange zest and that sharp blood orange bitterness that hits you like a wet towel snapping on the back of your legs. Bracing and refreshing, while still being ultra complex and interesting. A real classic for these guys--would be a shame to see it relegated to one-off status.
