Ferris (8154) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle - IPA like citrus and orange notes. Orange with a rich white head. Starts with a tiny hit of bitterness and finishes with a pithy orange. Orange is very nice, but I am having trouble drinking the whole bottle.

phaleslu (7670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2014
12 oz. bottle shared by Mike - thanks again! Pours a super hazy pale yellow-gold with lots of yeast floaters and a white head. Very wheaty and bready throughout in texture and flavor and aroma. The blood orange shows up mostly in the flavor. Also bread and florals in this one. Light-bodied, with a dry mouthfeel and high carbonation. Not bad, but a bit lacking in character for the description and label.

Draught @ La Jolla Brewing Company. Aroma has orange juice and tropical fruits. Flavour has orange, grapefruit and some malt. Also mild, sweet berry juice tones in the finish. Decent.

douglas88 (7354) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 31, 2014
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."
