Davros (1999) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2014
Pours hazy amber with a large head. Nose shows sweet malt with cookie dough characters, a faint blood orange note and some soft spicy/floral hops. Same sweet malt and cookie dough as flavours along with a sweet note from the blood orange. A fair bit of hop bitterness in the finish along with spicy and earthy hops. Very drinkable.

Gerbeer (1947) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 27, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with light head. Aromas of grapefruit and orange marmalade, light toasted malt and a touch of resin. Tastes like orange marmalade with bitter finish. A little watery but tasty enough for the ABV and easy to drink.

That1Guy (1946) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2013
12 bottle pours a very murky gold with a white, sticky head. Aroma of light citrus, a little sulfur, a little sweaty, a bit papery. Flavor is more very light citrus, a bit more paper. If it didnít say blood oranges were added, I wouldnít have noticed. Just likened the citrus to the hops. More orange, less oxidation.

r464 (1944) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2014
Rather dry and fairly bitter. Tight, bitter citrus zest, dry hops, Lacking greatly in punch and trailing off quickly, itís a bit disappointing.

Reid (1938) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2013
12 oz single from Roths Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $1.80 Pours a rather attractive murky orange colour with a nice sized thick white head. For a pale this has strong resiney/pine hop aromas,along with some orange peel..nice but odd for a pale Again strong hop flavours this time more fruit with the pine..some orange pith in the back and a sweet fruity finish. OK mouthfeel about average for style.. Nice drinkable beer..but I would say this is more an IPA than an APA or at least it blurs the line!

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 Bomber at Lake Wenatchee 7/20/2013

Red-orange pour, foamy head. Pine, citrus, orange juice aroma. Blood orange and juicy hops in the flavor. Soapy bitterness on the long finish. Nice before-noon drinker, mimosa for the beer set. 7/4/8/4/15=3.8

Revist at home, 12 oz bottles 4/21/14.

Lighter than red-orange pour this time (was I imagining before, or has it changed?) Not aggressive at all, but the orange and citrus hops blend just right to make for a delicious beer. Super-drinkable. Bump to 7/4/8/4/16=3.9

(One of many) revisit(s) 5/28/14. OMFG. I suddenly get it. I had no idea what Prufrock was talking about when he described a mustard thing going on that ruins this beer -- now I totally get it. This one has mustard all up in your face on the front end of the beer. I canít really pin in down to a particular hop or other ingredient, nor can I even specify other beers that suffer from the same. I guess itís a characteristic of a few APAs that push too far out along a spectrum I would normally describe as metallic, but even that Iím not sure of. In any case, yeah, a ton of mustard detracts significantly.
