MrFecesious (1068) - 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.

Local pour at a pizza joint. Nice hazy orange color, white pillowy head. Nose is oranges, grapefruit. Taste was plenty of the same, nice hop bitterness. Mouthfeel was light and the finish was somewhat dry.

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

troopie (2291) - 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 (938) - 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 (3391) - 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.

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2013

jredmond (5555) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Vin, I believe shared with Pat, Pj, Dave, Sean and Judo. Pours a light hazy orange body with not much head, some minor lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and bitter citric hop. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium with notes of citrus fruits, citra hop, lemon peel and spice. Ok pale ale.

That1Guy (1945) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2013
12 bottle pours a very murky gold with a white, sticky head. Aroma of light citrus, a little sulfur, a little sweaty, a bit papery. Flavor is more very light citrus, a bit more paper. If it didn’t say blood oranges were added, I wouldn’t have noticed. Just likened the citrus to the hops. More orange, less oxidation.
