12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a hazy...should I say it? Okay. Pours a hazy orange color. The head is a one finger offwhite shade thatís very bubbly in its texture. Some sheeted lacing is left behind as well. S: Pleasant tones of mango, pine, Simcoe cattiness, and crackery malt abound. I also pick up a hint of blood orange, as well - especially when it opens up - but given the advertising of blood oranges, Iíd expect it to smell less like a typical Simcoe-hopped pale ale. To be fair, though, blood orange is a VERY common note in pale ales... T: It starts off with touches of pine and mango. After the midpoint is where the advertised blood oranges comes through, creating a juicy yet bitter finish. Itís not superbly interesting, all told, however it does live up to its billing. M: Not as clean as Iíd like it to be. Also a bit on the heavy side in terms of texture. Pleasantly bitter and carbonated, though. O: The use of blood oranges here isnít enough to make this stand out from the scores of pale ales on the market. Iíd reckon its worth a try, just donít expect to be blown away.

On tap at Tsuki to Taiyo Brewing. Murky orange with an off-white head. Aromas of grain, citrus and pine with a bit of blood orange. The blood orange comes through on the palate more as it warms up (especially on the finish). Easy to drink and refreshing. Not bad.

Tap at some fancy place in Portland. Pour is orange brown and light with little head. Nose is sweet and body follows. Smooth and sweet. Orange for sure. Bit of pink grapefruit too. Good and would do again but super sweet.

skmikeg (1318) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Pours bright orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus (mainly orange), tropical fruits, pine, and some light bready malts. Taste is pretty same to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, slightly dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty, refreshing APA that features blood orange pretty nicely.

Draught at Vivo. Rich fresh orange character, bit of pineapple, honey, floral notes, dry finish. Solid pale ale with just enough zest of blood orange to give it a nice fruity kick.

patricks110 (2069) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 24, 2015
A decent brew overall. Pours a bright ruby red with a dark amber body. The aroma is fruity with heavy citrus, light pine and a bit of a tropical essence. Nice malt base with caramel and a bit of molasses/toffee. Sweet and very fruity. Bitterness is reserved but present. Balanced for sure.

jc1762 (225) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 21, 2015
Poured from a bottle showing extremely cloudy orange and a finger of white foam. The nose shows a lot of sweet malt and very slight hints of orange. The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. Orange zest compliments the bittering hops and the orange flavors support most of the sweet malts. Works quite well.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3056) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle at Imazato. Elysian superfuzz has a great blood orange hoppy aroma. It pours a gleaming gold pour with a wonderfully fruity hoppiness. Medi bodied with a soft pillowy mouthfeel. Man this is a solidly delicious pale ale.

on tap somewhere in Washington DC; amber color; citrusy, hoppy aroma; citrusy hop flavor; the orange is not very evident, it just enhances the citrusy hop character of the beer

12 oz via bottle. Orange zesty, mild hop bitterness, light grainy and cereal-like malts. Average body. Decent overall.
