2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy apricot color with a solid, fine white quilt. Smells like blood orange juice, a little gym sock, some clipped and dried grass with a touch of resin. Taste is like grain, some blood orange, standard orange pith and some bitterness. Maybe a touch of acidic vomit, but more the aftertaste than the actual taste. Medium on full bodied with low carb and a slightly wet finish. Meh, not very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Super hazy with a sunburst hue and a creamy light tan head on top. A very nice looking beer.
Aroma: Grapefruit and orange stick out, orange pith namely. No depth but pleasant if you enjoy those aromas.
Taste: The intro is rather mild with a noticeable malt base, the back-end picks up grapefruit and orange pith flavors though giving it a semi-harsh bitterness. I notice some caramel and toast towards the back-end also. The finish is dry and lingers of grapefruit.
Palate: Full-bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: This is a solid pale ale, an excellent one if you really enjoy the flavors that it provides. Iím not a huge fan of the straight forward grapefruit/bitter citrus beers though so Iím not in love. Itís also pricey.

Bottle. Hazy straw with a thin white head. Aroma is resin, tangerine and citrus skins. Blood orange comes through in the taste backed up by resinous bitterness. Prickly carb. Nice change of pace.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange and frothy white head. Aroma of biscuit malt and orange. Orange flavor pairs perfectl with citrus hops and balanced by a healthy maltiness. More of a citrusy ipa than fruit beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A hazy/murky light rust pour with a thin beige head. Tangy blood oranges, zesty citrus rinds, freshly cut grass, lots of spiciness, light candi sugar, and a little caramel maltiness in the aroma. Relatively medium-bodied on the way down. The taste starts with a fair amount of caramel and a sweet cereal graininess. Kinda crackery. Plenty of juicy/tangy oranges and zesty citrus rinds at the end. A good deal of spiciness throughout. A tad resiny. I think I let this one age a bit too much in my fridge. It was much tastier when it was fresh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: cloudy orange with a creamy, dense near white head and decent, silky lacing. Aroma: orange (of course), but also grapefruit, passion fruit, a bit of mango, some vanilla, and a bit of pine; almost like a tropical/citrus creamsicle, but not that sweet. Taste: bitter citrus up front, with definite blood orange and grapefruit notes, over a lighter bed of slightly toasty malts that try, but fail, to balance. Finish: bitter, slightly dry, with lingering orange flavors. Notes: Plenty of citrus, as advertised. The bottle art was pretty funky and cool.
