3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s 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 it’s drinkable.

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 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Deep dirty straw, very thick, moderate to large frothy white head, decent lacing. Very faint citrusy nose, perhaps a bit of pith and unsweetened grapefruit. Not very bright. On the tongue its also fairly non-descript, a bit of hops, semi-sweet pith, some grapefruit. Nothing strong. Seems to have a decent malt background, but other than that its light. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Finishes clean, but very pedestrian and confused. Or maybe thats me?
