Draft. Pours orange with a small head and minimal lacing. Taste is light, crisp and has some sweetness. The finish is a bit on the yeasty side with some mild bitterness. This is okay, nothing too exciting. Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Dark amber pour with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is very light with a little sweetness, malt and a little hops. Flavor is a little sweet, a little sticky, and a bit dry at the end. Not my favorite, but decent brew. obguthr (6431) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Can: Weak aroma of whole orange. Hazy amber, medium billowy yellow head. Sweet for the style. Orange soda initially, but finishes more malty and beery. Marshmallow also present. Not cloying, but again too sweet for the style. Possibly artificial. Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2011

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 Draft at Dallas’s wedding reception. Pours a hazy gold body with light frothy lacing. Aroma is fresh cinnamon, citrus hop, and other spices. Mouthfeel is medium lightly carbonated with notes of sweet spicy hops. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 20, 2011
THOUGHTS: Nice and pretty well made, but noting all that special. Decent balance and fairly easy to drink. Packed with flavor for a fairly low ABV beer. Not complex, but pretty well put together. Really hope the start can more of their styles.
TECHNICAL: Can. Poured a clear at first and then hazy by the bottom of the can, light brownish orange with a large, creamy, off-white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma wasn’t as intense as the flavor. It had very light caramel and grain; moderate citrus hops; and lighter pine hops. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet, moderate to heavily bitter and lightly acidic with an average to long duration. There was citrus hops, ceramel malt, pine hops, grapefruit, lemon and orange hops. The light to medium body was slightly syrupy and sticky on the lips with moderately fizzy carbonation and a dry and lightly metallic finish. sloth (2910) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Medium sized, rocky white head with god retention and a surprisingly nice lace. Clear copper orange hued ale, nice lookin. Nose is ripe with peppery hops, citrusy, fruity and hint tropical. Body is lightly medium, nice carbo level. Nice orangey flavors with a lightly sweet caramel malt backing, spicey and fruity, little lemon and faint pine. Dry, citrusy finish, even a little juicey. Nice APA! Can from Suburbinliquorstore, newark DE. BeerandBlues2 (13594) - Escondido, California, USA - JUL 23, 2011
