3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at Collins Pub in Seattle. The beer pours a murky reddish-orange color with a minimal white head that disappears quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, malt and hops. Medium body with a sweet fruity flavor consisting primarily of tangerine and orange. Notes of sweet malt and herbal hops as well. The finish is fruity up front with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of pure oranges, loads of citrus hops, and a bit of caramel malt quite outdone by the citrus fruit. Flavour brings out loads of dry citrus fruits, oranges, dry citrus hops and just enough malt to back. Quite a citrus juicy body with a dry finish. Decent stuff.

22oz bottle, shared with Radarsock. Beautiful electric orange completely hazy color. Good thin white head. Good lace. Good smooth lighter carbonation. Medium body. Awesome orange and grapefruit aromas. Good tangy taste, light bitter and sweet, good amount of zest. Nice floral hops. Very much leaning toward IPA. Very nice, I liked this a lot. Great breakfast beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Pours a really hazy, dull, and lifeless gold. Bitter citrus up front, rind-y, with a bitter hoppy finish. Not especially pleasant, but flavorful and interesting.

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?

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bomber poured into an Elysian pint glass. Thanks to 5000 for sending me both.
The beer pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the fruit. I get a lot of orange and grapefruit notes, which I assume comes from the blood oranges. I also get a little bit of biscuit malt in the aroma.
The flavor is similar. I get some tartness and a hint of bitterness up front. Once again there is a lot of orange and grapefruit notes, as well as a hint of lemon. I get some biscuit malt and just the slightest hint of sweetness in the flavor. A very fruity, citrusy beer that goes down very easily.
Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
