UPDATED: JUL 25, 2014 On tap at Hops Northwest in New Westminster. A good one for sure. More notes to follow. Apologies in advance.

And July 25, 2014 at The Tangent in Vancouver. A murky orange beer with white head. The blood orange infusion is self-evident and that in a good way. Just enough hop and malt to distinguish it from a fruit cooler. A nice summer refreshment. 3.8.

I was expecting a lot more from this beer considering Elysian’s pedigree. I didn’t get much Blood Orange or even citrus taste and it wasn’t that hoppy either. Label was cool though.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2013 Surpisingly decent color, but very subtle so could be overlooked. Caramel undertones in the aroma work against its summer beer persona. With the citrus profile, makes an excellent change up for a long evening session beer.

Bottle [12oz]. Pours a cloudy orange-copper with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma of blood oranges first followed by light citrus hops, lemon tartness, pale malt and light herbs. Flavour follows but everything is more subtle and harder to detect and with a dry, light to moderate bitter finish -- still pleasant though. Average bodied. Pretty good and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reid (1860) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2013
12 oz single from Roths Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $1.80 Pours a rather attractive murky orange colour with a nice sized thick white head. For a pale this has strong resiney/pine hop aromas,along with some orange peel..nice but odd for a pale Again strong hop flavours this time more fruit with the pine..some orange pith in the back and a sweet fruity finish. OK mouthfeel about average for style.. Nice drinkable beer..but I would say this is more an IPA than an APA or at least it blurs the line!

First visual impression looked like excess yeast in the bottle which was not the case. Beer poured with a nice white head that didn’t not last very long after pour. Very citrusy in the nose with a light malt smell. Has a great bite from the hops, I wish the hops tasted a little more citrusy. Also pretty hot for it being 5.4%abv. Moderate Carbonation gives a nice crisp taste with a dry finish from the hops. Overall it could have been a little more maltier to balance some of bitterness and hide some of the up front alcohol .
