2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a cloudy light golden orange with and a small white head. Aroma of fuzzy orange zest and some biscuity malt. Flavour is very bitter, bringing out dry bitter notes of orange zest, some citrus notes, and fuzzy biscuity malts. Very fuzzy and zesty. Unspectacular but drinkable. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Scion Silver Spring. Muddier dark orange pour. Weaker white foam with some okay lacing. Nose is softer orange juice, mild citrus hops. "Blood orange", a flavor I love, did not really hit me. Taste again is quite soft, no abrasive bitterness, no acid from the blood orange, restrained citrus hops. Quite drinkable, simple, no flaws. Clean palate. My qualm is that it came across as bland, not a lot of APA character and nothing that screamed blood orange.

On tap at Sunset Grille. Review based on pint at Darby's. Cloudy orange. Nice lacing from minimal cap. Aroma of oranges and zest spritz, a touch of pine, and candied sugar. Taste is pretty weak citrus and hop. Good, dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange gold with a finder of coarse white head. Settles quickly with a little lacing. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, citrus, very mildly funky. Flavor is hoppy, strong orange/citrus, with a mildly bitter, citrus finish. Hint of medicinal/herbal tones. Reminiscent of orange soda at times. Decent balance of hop and orange. Moderate carbonation, light body, crisp texture, and a mildly astringent finish. An interesting, fruity, drinkable pale ale.

Bottle, pours super hazed orange juice color light head and lacing, notes of heavy blood orange zest, hops, citrus. Not as bad as other Elysians but I prefer straight forward hoppy pales. Slightly underrated.
