mcberko (6515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
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.

GT2 (8440) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 24, 2013
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.

MrFecesious (960) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2013
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.

Bitter, slightly hoppy. Citrus quality stands out in the flavor, and is prominent in the aroma.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Not at all bad. Citrus orange aroma, cloudy orange colour. Citrus from the hop, some seville orange in the finish.

Brouwerij (929) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2013
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.

PhillyCraft (3228) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2013
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.
