3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 Elysianís pedigree. I didnít get much Blood Orange or even citrus taste and it wasnít 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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.
