Pint at Hollingshead's Deli in Orange today before the crowd arrived, by the way that place is amazing

Best beer of this kind that has ever touched my lips

Owner told me the only place to get this is at their actual brewery, but they gave him a special keg of it

I cannot believe he is only charging five dollars for each glass

Appearance was an orange/yellow golden color if that makes sense with a huge white head that stuck around for a while

Great aroma of citrus and oranges were also is the taste

Perhaps one of the most drinkable beers I have ever had

Wow, I could go on and on about how good this beer was, hopefully they decide to bottle this along with Racer X in the future

This brewery is becoming one of my favorites as the days go on, have not had a bad beer from them yet

Tasted delicious along with roast beef sandwich and potato chips

Drink this beer immediately if you find access to it, get down to the OC if you get the chance in the next day or two

This and Blind Pig will most likely be gone by the time the weekend rolls around

Amazing and highly recommended

Bright and bubbly pale straw color with a tinge of wit whiteness. Nose of banana, orange peal, coriander, and lemon rind. Body is light, refreshing, clean, crisp, and well balanced. Soft citrus flavor of both grapefruit and orange, peach fuzz, coriander, hints of banana. Extremely drinkable. Very nice.
