A fruity American Pale Ale. Good quality, best enjoyed in the big pint sized bottle.

I wasn’t expecting much as I had a previous beer from this brewery and I wasn’t a fan. But I think this is surprisingly good

Red-orange pour, foamy head. Pine, citrus, orange juice aroma. Blood orange and juicy hops in the flavor. Soapy bitterness on the long finish. Nice before-noon drinker, mimosa for the beer set. 7/4/8/4/15=3.8
Revist at home, 12 oz bottles 4/21/14.
Lighter than red-orange pour this time (was I imagining before, or has it changed?) Not aggressive at all, but the orange and citrus hops blend just right to make for a delicious beer. Super-drinkable. Bump to 7/4/8/4/16=3.9
(One of many) revisit(s) 5/28/14. OMFG. I suddenly get it. I had no idea what Prufrock was talking about when he described a mustard thing going on that ruins this beer -- now I totally get it. This one has mustard all up in your face on the front end of the beer. I can’t really pin in down to a particular hop or other ingredient, nor can I even specify other beers that suffer from the same. I guess it’s a characteristic of a few APAs that push too far out along a spectrum I would normally describe as metallic, but even that I’m not sure of. In any case, yeah, a ton of mustard detracts significantly.

A very nice unique beer. Pours a thick yellow with a light white head. Smells just like blood oranges. Lots in the taste as well, but smoothed out by the hops. Everything works well together. Had on tap at the brewpub.

This was a nice surprise of a pale ale. Aroma was nice. Just a hint of orange with sweet light malt. Pour was a nice light medium cloudy gold with a one finger white head. Taste is very full for such a small ABV. Just slightly sweet with notes of orange kept in check by the sweet juicy malt. No hops here. Decent carbonation. Nice beer

On tap at Capone’s, Norristown. Nice pour, medium orange bordering on pink grapefruit, lively carbonation. Nose is pretty nice, and you certainly get the oranges in a big dose, along with aggressive hops. To taste, the hops are on the piney, citric end of the spectrum, nice contrast that. And the blood orange flavors come through quite refreshingly, with just a kiss of honey in there for good measure. Definitely comes across as juicy.

Bottle->shaker. Hazy light orange with small offwhite head. Orange, citrus, slight hops and malt. A little gimmicky. Eh.

Extremely refreshing for a summer evening. Enjoyed the lightness and freshness. Not heavy at all.
