I had this at ABR last month and was stoked to find 3 growlers at the Brewery 2 weeks ago.

Serving at home from the growler, a rigorous pour produces about an inch f white, settling fairly quickly to a ring around the collar.
I like that this has a great hazy unfiltered look, because I'm getting a meal outta this beer. And I can cross a trans atlantic journey without worries of scurvy, which settles my nerves nicely.
It feels like someone is squirting an orange literally all up in my face, but without my eyes burning.
Sweet ,malt, oranges, and fruity pebbles in aroma and taste. Taste bitters out a wee bit more with citric twang and hop bitters.
Feel is fuller and slick but a nice doseage of carbo na shun evens the keel and sets sail to paradise. <boating reference.

Will do business with again.

I have little information on this brew, only that it's called "Orange Blossom", though possibly "Orange Blossom Special", and the friend who delivered the growler to me said it was "real good". So many details left out, so many questions. I'll have to call the brewery and fill in the blank spots later.

Clear, bronzed appearance, actually more a burnished orange, really...nice head, goes down quick, big carbonation.

Aroma: orange and cream, floral and fruity, sweet and sophisticated, very lovely, if a touch on the sweet side.

Taste: smooth, light, but not insubstantial. Minimal hops, stable malt, a touch of caramel, but it's all a minor ballast to buoy up this unique orange flavor, unlike anything I've yet encountered in a beer.

Gets dry a bit on the tongue halfway into the glass, the sweetness gives way, but the fruit never falters. A tasty, happy treat, this ale, easy to drink in summertime heat, and plenty of flavor to keep you smiling!

Another singular beer from a Hoops Brother...surprise, surprise!
