pinkie (470) - New York, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Pours hazy and on golden hues with a soft orange blush. Thin head of white foam that fell quickly and left some good sheeting lace. Nose is orange. The tangy sweet blood orange. A bit of the pith and a touch of sugar for malt. Taste is lovely citrus with that blood orange prominent and then a touch fo the tart grapefruit to hold it up. A little bit of sweet herbal and a and a bit of cracker from the malt carry this one to the finish like a spiked orange -ade. I just loved this and think it’s one the most pleasant pales I have tried. Sweet and tart combine seamlessly for a a palate that is quenched and satisfied. Light fruity and juicy mouthfeel. Silken malt with ample carbonation. Crisp and bold palate with a brisk finish and lingering tartness and slight bitterness.

jdb288 (584) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2014
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.

Beerdedone (2933) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2014

Oakes (13426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Hazy light tan. Fruity, dash of grapefruity hops on the nose. Fresh, fruity palate, light citrus, pale malts and a bit of yeastiness. Moderate bitterness grows on the palate.

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle.
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.

pjames317 (93) - Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2014
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.

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.
