    It is an American amber with a second boil that includes the peels of 10 cleaned oranges. It comes out with a orange aroma and a slight orange after taste...

    You crazy Californians. Second boil? What the hell is that?
    Do you mean "secondary" with orange peel added?
    On an Amber that might work if you keep the hopping levels low enough. But don't use "bitter" orange". I think to get a nice orange note, you would want to use mostly "sweet orange" with a little "bitter" to keep it even.
