A fun summer pale that works! Pour is more hefe like in its cloudiness. Primary flavor note to me is more grapefruit than orange, over a pale base that provides a nice foundation. Tanginess lingers. A refreshing session at 5.4%! B+

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle in Port Angeles with Scott and family. Aroma and flavor of pale ale and blood orange, which was a perfect pairing. Nice going on this one. Probably won't see another one, but I'd like to. Good beer, great recipe.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A hazy/murky light rust pour with a thin beige head. Tangy blood oranges, zesty citrus rinds, freshly cut grass, lots of spiciness, light candi sugar, and a little caramel maltiness in the aroma. Relatively medium-bodied on the way down. The taste starts with a fair amount of caramel and a sweet cereal graininess. Kinda crackery. Plenty of juicy/tangy oranges and zesty citrus rinds at the end. A good deal of spiciness throughout. A tad resiny. I think I let this one age a bit too much in my fridge. It was much tastier when it was fresh.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Judging by other reviews, I think something may have been "off" with my bottle. Got some orange, but there was a lot of metallic flavor. Fortunately, I am still alive after drinking it to write this review, so I can tell you to look out for this. Hopefully you guys will have a better experience!

Draft. Golden pour white head. Citrus and a bit of orange. Bitter finish but not obnoxious. Good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours translucent marmalade orange with a very small head, barely any retention, and not much activity. Fragrant orange and grapefruit on the nose - very fruity and inviting.
Attack: crisp, half silky/half creamy, oncoming sharp bitterness
Mid-palate: fruity 5/10-sweet orange, grapefruit peel, malts, hints of pine
Finish: long lingering grapefruity-hopped intense bitter finish
Overall very balanced, drinkable, and a good-textured beer, but also quite aggressive with the hopped bitter finish.
