On tap at Capone’s. Poured an amber color with an off white head. Citrus, some caramel, floral and some earthiness.

Dark amber, reflects the blood orange. Soft white head and lace rings. Flavour has lots of citrus like biting an orange. Some hoppiness.

Gave this one a shot. It was decent. The orange was not over powering but it was there. So were the hops. I’m not sure why Elysian is so expensive (over $14 a sixer). Definitely not worth the price

Pours a cloudy yellowish orange with little head or lacing. Orange and tangerine on the nose. Not as crisp a mouthfeel as I was expecting, but it’s also not as sweet as some other beers of this type. Tangy, hints of lemon zest and grapefruit. All in all, a nice beer, especially during the warm summer months.

JToth (30) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Aromas of blood orange, grapefruit, citrusy hops and a touch of pine. Pours a hazy golden/amber with a minimal white fizzy head. Taste brings forth stronger notes of hops and pine, with slight orange and grapefruit in the finish. Pretty solid citrus pale ale

(Bottle). Nice hazy orange complexion with ample white head. Mild hop aroma. Flavor of mild hops with minimal orange flavor in finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UXO (340) - CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Pours hazy pale gold with two fingers of loose white head, good retention, moderate lacing (4/5). Nose is orange peel, pine resin and floral hops, caramel malt (7/10). Taste is hop forward, then moderate caramel and citrus sweetness, finishing bitter (7/10). Medium body, moderate to low sustained carbonation, with a lingering bitter orange peel finish (4/5). I’m not sure what I was expecting, but that wasn’t it! That being said, the orange is actually very well done - its presence is more peel than pulp or juice, which works very well with the bitter hop character of the underlying APA. I guess I was expecting a sweet, orange juice-y character, but this is actually extremely restrained on the sweetness, imparting loads of citrus character without being sickly. And boy, does it linger! (15/20)

Cool label art Bottle to goblet Aroma of blood orange, pine, spruce, grapefruit, and pepper. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a creamy and frothy off white head. Taste is orange, syrup, spruce, pine, hops, and a touch of lagery skunk.

Bottle, picked up for $4.39 in Bozeman, MT. Hazy golden-yellow pour with a smallish white head. Spotty lacing. Nose is sweet with citrus hops and suggests the sweet citrus notes of lemonade. Good flavor from the blood oranges; a nice balance of citrus zest to the ‘fruitiness’ of the orange. This reminds me of fresh grapefruit, in addition to the blood orange. Mild, lingering bitters in the tail. I like this… I can’t believe how quick I emptied that glass. More please!

Ernesto987 (3859) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 16, 2014
bottle, moderate sweetness, some alcohol burn for a 5.4 % OUCH, and a lot of blood orange flavor, which is cool, its gimmicky, but cool.

phaleslu (6690) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2014
12 oz. bottle shared by Mike - thanks again! Pours a super hazy pale yellow-gold with lots of yeast floaters and a white head. Very wheaty and bready throughout in texture and flavor and aroma. The blood orange shows up mostly in the flavor. Also bread and florals in this one. Light-bodied, with a dry mouthfeel and high carbonation. Not bad, but a bit lacking in character for the description and label.
