Bottle:   Dirty straw, orange hue, little sudsy white head, no real lacing.   Faint citrusy hop aroma, slightly floral as well.   All very minor.   Moderate bitterness up front, a touch mealy, with a very soft pith and peel citrus based background.   Blood oranges?   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft hop finish, citrus pith and peel.   I thought it would be a bit sweeter, but it was not.   Decent, but middle of the road.

Draft at fields. Pours a murky dark amber with bright orange highlights. Dense pillowy white head. Mild sweet orange blossom nose, sweet and floral. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Sweet with a mild dry bitterness. Not a real blood orange showcase, far from the sharp bitterness of a campari. Mild finish.

Bottle [12oz]. Pours a cloudy orange-copper with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma of blood oranges first followed by light citrus hops, lemon tartness, pale malt and light herbs. Flavour follows but everything is more subtle and harder to detect and with a dry, light to moderate bitter finish -- still pleasant though. Average bodied. Pretty good and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small white head. A nice nose of oranges, dry husky malts. Sweet, bigger Amarillo, oranges, bitterness throughout, more earthy dry malts. I guess my only complaint is that the Munich especially is getting in the way here, too dusty and earthy to be as clean as it could be. But overall this is solid.

"Less hops than I’d have thought, especially since it’s a pretty new beer. A little disappointing there. But, the orange starts pleasant and builds from there, leaving a pleasant tingle on the tongie and a decent aroma. Without the orange, this would be a pretty crappy pale ale, but with it? Not too shabby."

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Hazy straw color with a large white head. The aroma is full of blood orange and grapefruit notes with some wheat character thrown in. The flavor is similar. I get some pithy blood orange notes, as well as a little bit of juicy citrus. The wheat and biscuit character is present, as is some grass from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Draft at City Tap House DC. Pours a hazy golden color with orange highlights and a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have citrus peel, a splash of orange, floral notes, grass, lightly toasted bread with mild bitterness to the finish. A bit soft and thin mid palate. This is not one of my favorites from this brewery.
