Default Bronze HLT looks scary?

I have a brass barb in my HLT which is obviously exposed to high temp water. Today I made a batch of star san in it and after transferring it to a carboy, I noticed the brass barb looked orange. Is this very bad?

Default

I believe thats a normal reaction between the acid in starsan and brass, copper or aluminum
