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.

Reid (1888) - 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!

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.

Gerbeer (1738) - 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.

poisoneddwarf (1707) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - SEP 5, 2013
12 oz bottle. Aroma is perfumy, doughy, chalky; the orange makes itself known after it warms up. Pours hazy orange with a medium collapsing white head. Taste is mostly bitter with a nice orange component that provides a bit of tartness; also some graininess in the finish. Prickly carbonation, medium body. Not bad.

Leafs93 (1671) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Pouirs hazy, cloudy burnt orange with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, floral and hay. Taste is sweet with less bitterness then the aroma belies. Medium bodied, thin texture, average carbonation and sharp finish.

bartlebier (1656) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - OCT 9, 2013
22oz bottle, from Mondial de la BiŤre shop, Mulhouse Sep 2012. Pours a murky orange, immediate fresh orange marmelade aroma, substituted by rather peachy and mango flavours than indistinct blood orange. Nice and dryish palate working in accord with sweet malt base and bitter c-hops. Easily sessionable, great light APA with the quality malt and hop base of a diluted IPA.

NikkTwist (1598) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Very hazy orange gold pour with a cream egg shell head. Lace. Tons of citrus zest. Juicy and, well, fuzzy. Blood Orange juice with a slight shot of Worcestershire. Nicely unfiltered. Tastes good but not overly complicated.

A fruity American Pale Ale. Good quality, best enjoyed in the big pint sized bottle.
