3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden orange on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of mild bready malts and light clean citrus notes. Taste follows, more of the citrus, light bitterness, more than the nose here. Pretty decent.

I am not getting much aroma (but that might be due to slight cold). When pouring, I got a pine scent. Color is a muddied orange with a off-colored head. Getting a lot of orange rind, with a pine resiny hops. Does have some citrus hop flavors too. A lot more bitter than anticipating for a pale ale. Maybe slightly more bitter for the flavor than I would like.

Draft at eastbound bar and grill. Orange and hops on the aroma. Deep orange color with decent head and lacing. Flavor was more orange and too much bitterness I wasn’t fond of.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2016 On tap and revisited with a 12 oz bottle in July 2016.
Hazy amber body with a good looking head.
Medium-light body with soft, medium carbonation.
Attractive, citrus hop dominated aroma and flavor. Just the right level of bitterness for style. Body is a touch too thin.

My bottle says 6.4% ABV, not 5.4%. Non descript aroma of wheat, pale malt and not much else. No hop presence in the scent for a pale ale and they should have used blood orange to a greater extent. Hazy orange with a white head. Incredibly drinkable, very light, only a slight tinge of hops at the end, and I am still wondering where the blood oranges are, but it is a nice flavor. Great palate. Low carb, dense and smooth. I would categorize this as above average bordering on good, with the extreme drinkability as its best characteristic. It would be good for people who you are trying to introduce to craft beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Elysian near Pike’s Place. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Soft musk and a bit of orange on the nose, but I’m certainly searching for it. Medium bodied, soft malt, a bit of musk, a touch of orange and dusty yeast. Soft musk, a bit of citrus. Dull, but decent enough.

Nice beer. The orange is not too overpowering. Great summertime beer with some decent strength.

Interesting and different. Orange flavor not overpowering and a hoop undertone. Not terrible but a bit off the wall
