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.

From the tap poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Light bitter hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

Pours a dark golden with a finger of fluffy head. Nose is hoppy, earthy, some biscuity malt, maybe some orange. Taste matches nose, spicy hops, some sweetness, balanced, adds a juicy orangey element at the end and dries out a bit, bitter orange peel. I liked it, but was looking for more blood orange. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lagerboy (1169) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
Bomber. Unclear orange yellow, thin off-white foam fades. Aroma of orange zest and floral spruce. Sprucey fruit taste, citrus orange and grapefruit, backseat pale malt. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Finishes a bit more acidic grapefruity. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

I really enjoyed this pale ale. the blood orange added a great dimension to both the flavor and the aroma. The sweetness help balance out the hops. if it was distributed closer to me I would buy a couple six packs for the summer

This beer promises orange, and it delivers. Superfuzz tastes like eating an entire orange, peel and all. If you like orange, this is great for you, as this is as orange beer tasting as orange beer can get. For people like me that are not crazy about orange, the beer is fine, but certainly not a first choice. If you flat out donít like orange flavored things, you should probably stay away. At the end of the day, this Orange Pale Ale is an enjoyable beer for your back door BBQs this summer, and is perfect at what it tries to do.

Tap pour at Upstairs in Mtc. Poured cloudy orange with thin foam head (second brew a bit thicker). Citrus smell, orange/grapefruit taste. Subtle hops tastes linger. Curiously, drunk glass looks a bit like Belgian beers (foam on glass). Drinkable, but not impressive.

Fantastic citrus aroma. Wonderful balance for a fruit beer, tangy with some hoppy bitterness to remind you youíre drinking beer. If you like citrus, youíll like this.
