3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours an opaque golden yellow with medium white head. Aroma of piny hops, oranges, and lemons. Flavor is of oranges and very bitter piny hops. Heavy mouth feel. I like it, but a bit too bitter for my tastes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft - Grain, citrus and bitter grapefruit on the nose. Cloudy orange with a huge thick fluffy white head. Taste is sweet with an immediate bitterness and citrus flavour. Rather than the sweetness of the orange I just get the bitterness of the pith. I finally get the blood orange in the finish. Refreshing and bitter, but not really all that tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22. Pours a murky medium toffeeish orange with a dense and creamy whitish head. Pleasant fresh fruit nose, clearly showing the oranges. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Bitter grapefruitiness of the blood orange underneath the more familiar sweet citrus flavor. Mostly a showcase for the fruit. Mild dry finish. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburís Fort Collins. Hazy, a touch peachy orange appearance with a big fluffy, cream colored head. Fairly yeasty, spicy/citrusy hoppy, orange peel, somewhat bitter, grapefruity aroma. Tangy, bitter orange, citrus zest, chewy yeasty, somewhat spicy, bready, bitter citrus hoppy flavor. Actually, quite spicy which was a bit unexpected and the hop content was quite high. Not exactly my thing, but itís drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice orange peel and citrus notes on the nose, a little pale malt sweetness, a touch of toast. Pours amber golden, nice head and lace. Flavors of orange peels, nice citrus hops, pale malts, a hint of sweetness. Fruit is there in the finish and behind the base beer. I really enjoyed this, liked its citrus bitterness and frutiniess. Unique take on an apa. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer was interesting. I was expecting a bit more orange flavor in it, but unfortunately just tasted hops. It pours a nice caramel finish and has the perfect head. Overall, I wouldnít go out of my way for it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured cloudy, pale orange with a thin head. Quite a bit of citrus here. Tasted of fermented Jolly Roger candies. Nice hop spice to balance. Somewhat drying, and full bodied. Good hoppiness with strong amount of orange citrus notes. A decent pair the two.
