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.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy pale orange color with a small off white head. Nice citrusy hop aroma, with lots of orange and sweet malt. This is a nice refreshing APA. Taste is orange, some grapefruit, sweet malts, with a nice hoppy finish.

bartlebier (2483) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 9, 2013
22oz bottle, from Mondial de la Bičre 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.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Growler. Very hazy orange with a small, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is lots of citrus peel with some pine, malt and honey. Flavor is sweet orange, clean malt and medium hop bitterness. Lighter body with a dryish finish. Nice pale, lots of natural orange flavor that works well with the hops and malt.

I was expecting a lot more from this beer considering Elysian’s pedigree. I didn’t get much Blood Orange or even citrus taste and it wasn’t that hoppy either. Label was cool though.

light orange ale seemingly with a bit of cloud which may give it a sense of wheat in the body and taste. pretty good ale with a nice citrus orange taste. bit of pine low sweetness and a decent kick. got a lot going for it.
