Bomber pours a yellowish orange color with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of orange, citrus, and pine. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with an odd sour funk in the back end that makes it wierd. I?m assuming its the blood oranges used. Mouthfeel was medium with pretty good carbonation. Overall this pretty good initially, but the sour funky bitter aftertaste you get isnt very appealing. I like the blood orange beer they brewed for the Beers of the Apocalypse series way better. I hope they tweak the recipe a bit. Definitely different from most pale ales I?ve had.

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 (2023) - 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 (182) - 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 (2979) - 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.

Barreras (1230) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Pours a cloudy yellow color with a rich orange aroma. Taste was rather disapointing. Lacked any true flavor, and was watered down. This beer was more like malted water with added orange mixture.

Orange colored pour with a white head. Awesome mix of good juicy hops and some really welcomed orange flavor. Quite a tasty beer.

Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is well hopped. Thought I would get more of the blood orange but the hops are here in a big way. Flavor is or course hoppy but then comes that blood orange to make it even more of a citrus blast. Finish is dry but also a bit bitter and tart. This was a darn fine beer, more hoppy than I thought but the oranges are here as well.
