harrymel (1496) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2013
ABV 5.4% Bottled: unk 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.

keanex (1423) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle.
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.

Zeswaft (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2013
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.

lamas (1355) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 23, 2013
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.

This beer is on tap at Jean Bonnet.Very cloudy reddish amber, not much head, the orange really comes through and a nice clean bitter finish. Very nice.

JDBaker11058 (1242) - Maryland, USA - OCT 1, 2013
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.
