UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 There is a bit of suspended disbelief in my rating and review. I don’t like to see stuff added to beer, but if it works, I’m not going to complain. The orange peel works, maybe even really works. This is one of those beers that really benefits from palate wrecking. The second half really starts to come into its own. I might like a second or third to get the full effect. Hop bitterness works like a Negroni in setting the stage. The orange becomes complex and balanced. Malt plays a significant supporting role.

Bottle. Pours golden with nice white head. Smell is orange peel and caramel malts. Taste follows suit but it was slightly more faded and with more pine flavor. Pretty good. EricTeusink (700) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2013
The problem with having someone pick you up a Wisconsin beer in Indiana and then transport it back to Georgia is that you can never be certain as to its freshness. I suspect the beer I got was a tad old, as the hop character was totally lacking. Pours a clear light amber with a barely-off-white head. Scent is all grain with slight hint of booze. The beer has a very nondescript and underwhelming bitter flavor. Well carbonated with an astringent finish. Pretty disappointed, especially given the relatively high rating this beer received.

Nice orange citrus nose. Like the twist of the orange and pine flavors compared to other ipas . Has decent malt balance and finish is long and dry. Good summer ipa commonshawn (1211) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Tap. Dark orange. Good lacing. White head. Citrus aroma. Good balance of citrus sweetness and pine hoppiness, though finish could be better. Double ipa type of taste, pretty nice.

Bottle. Orange amber with frothy white head. Aroma is citrus, cloves, orange peel, apricot, bread dough. Taste is sweet dough, sour orange, vanilla, tangy dried fruit, some resin bitterness, mouth feel dries out. rxeight (3045) - Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Not that impressed, subpar ipa. Slight bit of citrius, slight hop. Not much else going on. tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 8, 2013
12oz bottle shared. Poured an orangish color with white head. Nice aroma of hops and orange peel. The flavor is medium bodied malt and hops with the distinctive orange peels versus the usual citrus punch in the face. This is actually pretty good. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle. Copper/orange pour, white head. Aroma of citrus/floral hops, orange, caramel, light toast. Taste is lightly bitter, orange peel, citrus, some caramel malt sweetness. Palate is soft, oily, light bitter finish. Good.
