Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Served in a pint glass.

A: Hazy gold, good amount of visible carbonation and a large white fluffy head.

S: Big orange, citrus rind, light biscuit malt, and a bit of grassy and pine hops. However, the orange aroma is a little artificial, and the bitterness reminds me of orange marmalade.

T: Huge orange citrus, but it's still a little artificial and quite a bit bitterness, malt that's sweet but doesn't balance at all. Moderately grainy. Mild hop bitterness in the hang. My overall impression is sort of an artificial orange marmalade deal, but not quite as negatively as that makes it sound.

M: Heavy body for an APA, good carbonation sensation, and low alcohol.

O: I really think this was a good idea, it just fell a bit short. The citrus is too artificial, a little too bitter and overdone. Maybe if someone really, really liked orange marmalade it would work better for them. Still, I happily drank the pint I got.
