Fresh bottle. Pours murky orange with tall frothy head. Aroma is, of course, orange, with some lighter pine/fir notes. Good dose of the bitter, acidic blood orange on the palate with some softer pale ale characteristics. Quick finish with some lingering bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Super hazy with a sunburst hue and a creamy light tan head on top. A very nice looking beer.
Aroma: Grapefruit and orange stick out, orange pith namely. No depth but pleasant if you enjoy those aromas.
Taste: The intro is rather mild with a noticeable malt base, the back-end picks up grapefruit and orange pith flavors though giving it a semi-harsh bitterness. I notice some caramel and toast towards the back-end also. The finish is dry and lingers of grapefruit.
Palate: Full-bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: This is a solid pale ale, an excellent one if you really enjoy the flavors that it provides. I’m not a huge fan of the straight forward grapefruit/bitter citrus beers though so I’m not in love. It’s also pricey.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, pulpy yellow-gold with thin ring of soapy head. Aroma of Juicy Fruit hops and faint blood orange. Sort of a cross between an APA and a citrus forward wheat. Instant bitterness and tang from the blood orange. A little grapefruit character. Finishes clean, tart and dry with good lacing. A refreshing offering for the spring.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very descent ale that was as cloudy as it was citrusy. Minimal carbonation after pouring it into a glass. The funky bottle made it stand out on the shelf and was well worth the gamble.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very hazy pale gold tinged with a pinkish red and topped with a moderate white head. Very pleasant aroma that is filled with citrus fruitiness but specifically notable is the presence of blood orange. The flavor begins with husky malt, a bit grainy, which is probably my least favorite component to this beer. Finish is citrusy and again, the blood orange is very prominent. Grapefruit and orange bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied.
