Poured a nice orangish color with good carbonation and a small whute head. Nose is smooth and fresh orange, wheat, and hops. Taste is like a West Coast Pale Ale with fresh orange, caramel body, bug hops and fresh orange. Very good. Some beers like this have an artificial or astringent taste to them and this was on the money I thought. Mouthfeel is nice orange, hops and drinkability was very good. Nice light, crisp and refreshinng.

On tap at Hollister Brewing Co.

A - A brilliant orange/bronze color with a cream white head that disappeared fairly quick. Undeniably a beautiful presentation.

S - Smell was strong orange, with maltiness and grain

T - Sickeningly sweet and grainy. Was not to my liking at all. No hop flavors, very unbalanced. A huge disappointment. The orange and malt combo runs wild.

M - Smooth, with little carbonation. Light bodied.

O - I will never order this again and would rarely recommend it.

Almost has a Belgian something going on. Can't quite put my finger on it. Very sweet, though there is a fair bit of bitterness to cut down on the sweetness somewhat. The orange is subtle but there. I also found the feel a little too milkshake-esque for the style. Ultimately overshadowed by the many stronger offers on tap.
