Palme (3652) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2013
On tap @ Mudville 9. A really good looking big almost cartoon looking white dense head on top of a deep blurry, not cloudy but deep blurry almost glowing orange golden body. Looks like a million bucks. Nice fruity and a little bit tropical nose. I get a good dash of mango and peaches, some soft yeasty traces and the orange zest is also present. Not much but there. It’s above average on the carbonation and the mouthfeel is light oily. Nice bitter fruity flavors. More orange zest in the taste really, I get lots of grassy hops, peaches, some sweetness, but it’s more hoppy and bitter than sweet. I have to say that this is quite lovely actually. 16.06.2013

probstblueribbon (3652) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
12 fl oz bottle from Potsdam NY, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Murky orange-amber with a smallish off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma: Nice orange peel, slightly dank, grapefruit, a bit dusty, some light malt support, a touch fruity/estery, maybe a little medicinal/band-aid? Palate: Medium body, loose carbonation. Flav.: Nice grapefruit and orange peel, dank, slightly resinous, a little more cereal and wheat(?), kinda yeasty, good; dry with decent bitterness and a citrus peel, dank finish.

Pretty nice...nicer than expected.

beerbill (3601) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very hazy pale gold tinged with a pinkish red and topped with a moderate white head. Very pleasant aroma that is filled with citrus fruitiness but specifically notable is the presence of blood orange. The flavor begins with husky malt, a bit grainy, which is probably my least favorite component to this beer. Finish is citrusy and again, the blood orange is very prominent. Grapefruit and orange bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied.

IndianaRed (3556) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2014
220z Bottle. Pours looking like a standard Pale. Aroma of crisp citrusy hoips but not particularly fresh. Might be an old bottle as it was on sale and the local grocery store. Light crisp body and appropriate bitterness for a PA. A touch of bitter orange peel/pith to give it a bit of character. Decent.

shoulderbroken (3477) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 16, 2015
Tap at One. Get the orange but more sherbert like. Little maltiness, aroma is a little sweet, not so much fruit. Enjoying the sherbert element but guess that could get old in a whole pint.

Bulk_Carrier (3468) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAY 9, 2014
The appearance was a hazy orange color with a one and half finger white foamy head that dies to a lumpy looking film coating the top of the beer, decent amount of light foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass. The smell had some orange with light spice combined and amplifying a nice refreshing aspect. The taste was mainly sweet through the orange and spice. It’s kinda like drinking orange juice to an extent. Sticky sweet orange aftertaste leading into a nice crisp refreshing dry finish. M: light to medium, sessionable - yes, ABV feels very appropriate for what is told, carbonation is good for the style and for me as there’s the appropriate amount for an American Pale Ale lending a nice sweet coating around the mouth and tongue. Overall, I say this is a pretty good APA well worthy of coming back to and well worthy of having it with its respected food.

Ron (3466) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle. Mild hop and citrus aroma, bit of sweetness. Pleasant orange note. Cloudy amber-golden with thin off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts fairly dry with nice taste of orange and grapefruit and some bitterness. Finishes with lingering bitter.

jake65 (3315) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - SEP 25, 2014
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!

pintbypint (3309) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2014
650ml brown bottle. Hazy gold with a creamy white head. Decent lacing. Nose has piney and dank hops and very zesty orange peels. Taste has grain/toasty cereal malt base, a bit toasty and moderately sweet, hops are orange peel, late bitterness. Orange peel and slightly grapefruity aftertaste. A nice citrusy pale ale.

drjay44 (3301) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, tiny bubbled, very well retained, off white head, with some lacing, over a very hazy, gold (SRM 5) body....nose is heavy citrus (orange in type), light cereal, minimal hop notes, no esters.....taste is citrus with grapefruit, orange, blood orange, lime (a fruit salad), minimal esters, light hop honey floral notes, finishing with a lingering bitterness....mouth feel, medium body, moderate astringency, moderate acid finish, with low carbonation. This is not an APA, it is rather a spice, herb, vegetable variant. The APA is lightly present, with the malts and hops nicely balanced. However they are both dominated, as is the yeast contributions, by the fruit additions. It is not an unpleasant beer, it just isn’t an APA. Rating above to enjoyment, with rating below to style. BJCP 6/2/10/4/5
