General Information

Intended to be spicy and "orangy" - Krush 'em!

Tried a wit from a local brewpub - CB & Potts. I have to say, it tasted remarkably like this recipe. Very much so, in fact. Hmmm. Wonder if the brewmaster used this recipe??

Comments

Took to the inaugural meeting of a yet-to-be-named homebrew club sponsored by Rockyard Brewing in Castle Rock, Colorado. Everyone commented that this was an "excellent beer." Awesome.
