nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2013
12oz bottle courtesy of Anndiesel. Thick, unfiltered orange-tan body. Massive meringue type head. Pleasant tropical orange aroma. An interesting concoction, accentuates the citrus and brings an orange flavor into the mix. A little sweet and sugary, the artificial flavor isn’t a bonus. Assertive hops keep it going though. Not a bad beverage, but not the best beer.

Ferris (5009) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle - IPA like citrus and orange notes. Orange with a rich white head. Starts with a tiny hit of bitterness and finishes with a pithy orange. Orange is very nice, but I am having trouble drinking the whole bottle.

bartlebier (1981) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - OCT 9, 2013
22oz bottle, from Mondial de la Bière shop, Mulhouse Sep 2012. Pours a murky orange, immediate fresh orange marmelade aroma, substituted by rather peachy and mango flavours than indistinct blood orange. Nice and dryish palate working in accord with sweet malt base and bitter c-hops. Easily sessionable, great light APA with the quality malt and hop base of a diluted IPA.

joeneugs (3498) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 4, 2013
22 oz. bomber from Trader Joe’s. It pours a very effervescent light orange color with a fizzy off white head. The aroma is bready with hints of caramel and floral hops. Old school APA here. The flavor is the same. Nice floral and mildly citrus bitterness with a bready and very faintly caramel malt background. Not an incredibly exciting beer, but a solid APA.

JDBaker11058 (1366) - Maryland, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Appearance: cloudy orange with a creamy, dense near white head and decent, silky lacing. Aroma: orange (of course), but also grapefruit, passion fruit, a bit of mango, some vanilla, and a bit of pine; almost like a tropical/citrus creamsicle, but not that sweet. Taste: bitter citrus up front, with definite blood orange and grapefruit notes, over a lighter bed of slightly toasty malts that try, but fail, to balance. Finish: bitter, slightly dry, with lingering orange flavors. Notes: Plenty of citrus, as advertised. The bottle art was pretty funky and cool.

robertjm (776) - Albany, California, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Pure white head. Body is cloudy orange. Could be mistaken by accident. Slight orangy aroma.Flavor is actually on the sour side, not sweet like I expected from a blood orange. Only bought a single bottle to try. Now I wish I’d got the whole six pack!.

jfb (4092) - Freising, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2013
(bottle) pours a murky golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of orange peel, vanilla and puff pastry, slightly resinous, with a hint of crème brûlée. flavour is mostly the same, with big notes of bread dough, orange peel, a hint of yeast and a light sweetness in the medium-bitter finish. medium to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2013
On tap @ Mudville 9. A really good looking big almost cartoon looking white dense head on top of a deep blurry, not cloudy but deep blurry almost glowing orange golden body. Looks like a million bucks. Nice fruity and a little bit tropical nose. I get a good dash of mango and peaches, some soft yeasty traces and the orange zest is also present. Not much but there. It’s above average on the carbonation and the mouthfeel is light oily. Nice bitter fruity flavors. More orange zest in the taste really, I get lots of grassy hops, peaches, some sweetness, but it’s more hoppy and bitter than sweet. I have to say that this is quite lovely actually. 16.06.2013
