Overwhelming murky. Orange-peel color with clean-white small head. Good lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, some peripheral tangerine. A little musky, earthy. Decent but where’s the blood orange? Lacking refinement. Taste is muddled and dare I say it...a little generic. Pithy grapefruit bitterness is nice and lasting; a saving grace of sorts. There’s a menthol/chemical infiltrator in the taste that’s slightly unpleasant. I had juicy expectations. Unfortunately it was a ’dank’ squib. Great idea, great aesthetics; lacking in substance.

Kauge (359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Märts 2014, City Beverage, London. Hästi huvitav tuhmunud merevaigu värv, alt hele, pea kahvatu, ülalt tumedam - näha on, et apelsinidega on siin mõnusasti möllatud. Vaht üpris vähene, valge. Aroom on küll tugevalt tsitruseline, kuid seejuures mitte greibiselt mõrkjas, vaid magus, meenutades suhkruga kaetud tsitruselisi, väga keemilise olemusega pehmeid kummikomme või mingit lapsepõlvest tuntud jogurtit; soojenedes küpsisene. Ütleks küll, et tavalisest IPA-st "punasem". Juues hästi pehme, ülimõnusa tundega, peaaegu mullita, fantastiliselt sametjas - täpselt selline, mida fännan. Lõpu ära valades kriipivalt linnaseline, tugevalt mõrkjas (apelsinikoor), kuid järelmaik jääb pigem nõrgake ja isegi värskelt vesine. Kokkuvõttes siiski väga meeldiv.

Flaska. Grumlig mörkorange öl med stort vitt, lätt smutsat, skum. Dofter av karamell, citrus, kåda och (försiktig) parfym. Smakinslag av blodapelsin, grapefrukt, karamell, kåda och citrus. Stor, fyllig kropp. Stor beska. Ingen IPA som försöker ställa sig in direkt, men när du väl blivit kompis med den så bjuder den tillbaka.

teorn88 (3023) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2014
Backlog rating. 33cl bottle at Duke’s, London. It pours a bright orange color with a medium fluffy white head. Aroma is intensely hoppy and fruity with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest and grass. Taste is aggressively hopped up but maintained balanced by the blood orange sweetness. More grassy grapefruity hops. Finishes oily and a tad drier with bitter hops and orange peel. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Really well made and the oranges are perfectly integrated in the base beer

Hopmaestro (194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Aroma is fruity orange and hoppy with a moderate malt presence. The taste is good and you get a bitter orange peel bite combined with a sweetness. After a few seconds the bitterness fades away and leaves a kind of soft sweetness, which I would like to believe is from the oranges? Pretty interesting and different, but it still stays in the IPA style. Try it, it’s bloody good!
