Poured from a bomber dated 2/25, I had been wanting to try this one for awhile so didn't pay attention to the date when I grabbed it. The smell after opening the bottle was great, very citrusy. Poured a beautiful burnt orange color but was loaded with sediment, not sure if that's normal or not. Let it settle some and drank gently. Taste was grapefruit with good carbonation. I'll try a fresh one if I find one but seriously thinking about drain pouring this one due to the sediment.

Wicked hazy rusty orange color with a stupid large head of loose bubbles and spotty lacing. This beer was a pain to pour, head built out of control. Strong aromas of hops and citrus peel. Notes of grapefruit flesh, blood orange skin, and pith. Oddly carbonated, heavy bite up front fades by the swallow but fills the mouth with citrus bursts. Interesting beer, I like the flavor but the citrus does run over the hops and the IPA character.

Burnt orange coloring to it with a hazy appearance.
Can smell the oranges, citrus and hops
hoppy beer with some awesome blood orange tones to it
thinner feel to it
Love it when a beer can put oranges in it, its one of the best beers around it.

Pours an opaque, rose/pink tinted deep gold, looking very similar to a glass of pink grapefruit juice. The pour produces 4 fingers of frothy, white, moderately lasting head that leaves an island cap & collar ring of chunky froth & a nice webby coating of clumpy lace. Aroma is hop heavy orange & grapefruit with more restrained notes of pineapple, spice & maybe a little pine which combine to beat into submission a faint (biscuit) malt hint. Taste is a hop bomb version of the nose dominated by orange & grapefruit. The tropical fruit, spice & pine are detectable behind these but are joined by a herbal hint. A sweet maltiness is certainly more detectable throughout the sip than in the nose. There is also an alcohol note in the finish that I did not detect in the nose. Sweet, fruity & juicy up front through the finish it becomes dry, bitter & lightly astringent in the aftertaste. As with other blood orange brews I definitely pick up the orange (very prominent in this case) but lack the experience to differentiate between orange and blood orange. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, starts wet & juicy with a peppery prickle in the finish, becoming dry & drawing in the aftertaste. A mouth coating hoppiness leaves a lasting dryness on the tongue. If you're looking for a mouthwatering, tasty IPA give this one a try, you will not be disappointed!

A: Murky burnt orange, thin off white head, good lacing

S; Oranges, earthy, pine hops

T: Sweet orange up front, little caramel in middle of taste then the bitterness of the earthy, pine hops

M: Full mouthfeel

O: Man, a great orange IPA. Ive had this beer on my radar a while and finally got the chance to try it and I love it. Great orange character with a malty presence and hop bitterness to balance.

Appearance - The beer was dark murky orange in color.

Smell - The nose literally smells like orange juice. No joke!

Taste - At the front is sweet, almost syrupy orange juice. There is a slight hop bitterness with Earthy orange rind tones and a moderate sweet malt backbone. The bitterness carries to the aftertaste with the oranges yielding slightly.

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel is so thick, I almost forget I am not drinking orange juice.

Overall - This is outstanding!

The beer looked much like orange juice, coming out of the can. The body was hazy in appearance, amber colored, and had a small head, barely one finger thick. The aroma was laden with orange pulp smell, with the citrus dominating the somewhat spicy hops. The taste was citric up front, with a tasty orange flavor that eventually faded to a bitter hop taste, and finished with a spicy aftertaste. The body was quite dense, and the ABV not readily apparent. A good fruit flavored beer, that is not too sweet.

Solid danky citrusy IPA with orange zest and pith flavors. Perfect balance of hops and orange. Interesting and crushable. So glad this is in cans for pool adventures.

Damn good. Delicious aroma with a taste that does not disappoint! An unexpected almost creamy mouthfeel for an IPA. Well done Burnt Hickory!

I've had this before out of the 22oz bottle. It was maybe a month old and good, but not too memorable. This 2 day old can is amazing! Excellent use of the blood orange!
