3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, from Mondial de la Bière shop, Mulhouse Sep 2012. Pours a murky orange, immediate fresh orange marmelade aroma, substituted by rather peachy and mango flavours than indistinct blood orange. Nice and dryish palate working in accord with sweet malt base and bitter c-hops. Easily sessionable, great light APA with the quality malt and hop base of a diluted IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bomber from Trader Joe’s. It pours a very effervescent light orange color with a fizzy off white head. The aroma is bready with hints of caramel and floral hops. Old school APA here. The flavor is the same. Nice floral and mildly citrus bitterness with a bready and very faintly caramel malt background. Not an incredibly exciting beer, but a solid APA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: cloudy orange with a creamy, dense near white head and decent, silky lacing. Aroma: orange (of course), but also grapefruit, passion fruit, a bit of mango, some vanilla, and a bit of pine; almost like a tropical/citrus creamsicle, but not that sweet. Taste: bitter citrus up front, with definite blood orange and grapefruit notes, over a lighter bed of slightly toasty malts that try, but fail, to balance. Finish: bitter, slightly dry, with lingering orange flavors. Notes: Plenty of citrus, as advertised. The bottle art was pretty funky and cool.

Pure white head. Body is cloudy orange. Could be mistaken by accident. Slight orangy aroma.Flavor is actually on the sour side, not sweet like I expected from a blood orange. Only bought a single bottle to try. Now I wish I’d got the whole six pack!.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Mudville 9. A really good looking big almost cartoon looking white dense head on top of a deep blurry, not cloudy but deep blurry almost glowing orange golden body. Looks like a million bucks. Nice fruity and a little bit tropical nose. I get a good dash of mango and peaches, some soft yeasty traces and the orange zest is also present. Not much but there. It’s above average on the carbonation and the mouthfeel is light oily. Nice bitter fruity flavors. More orange zest in the taste really, I get lots of grassy hops, peaches, some sweetness, but it’s more hoppy and bitter than sweet. I have to say that this is quite lovely actually. 16.06.2013

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium to light amber with heavy amounts of sediment (fruit) and a foamy head with little retention. Flavors fruity, floral, light pine and orange peel. Flavors pine, floral, slightly fruity hops, hints of tangerine and light grass. Medium bitterness, lightly sweet, and medium dry. Notice the orange in more of wheat comes off as tangerine but lightly. Nicely paired fruit that fits very well.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Trader Joe’s in Davis, CA. Pours hazy amber with a slight creamy white head. Aroma seems grapefruit. Med body or nearly. Flavor is zesty - but seems more grapefruit rind than anything else. So much so that I’m not really getting much malt - other than it’s there supporting. I’d support this as a low ABV IPA! It’s quite tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy gold pour. Extreme citrus aromas and flavour, without being bitter. I got big grapefruit flavours, but not as much sweetness from the blood orange as I expected. Still tasty.
