Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid dark straw with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is blood orange zest, berries, piney malt, florals. Tastes very tart, citric, with notes of blood orange, tangerine, berry, and a tart finish. This one is unique and tasty.

Tap at Scion Silver Spring. Muddier dark orange pour. Weaker white foam with some okay lacing. Nose is softer orange juice, mild citrus hops. "Blood orange", a flavor I love, did not really hit me. Taste again is quite soft, no abrasive bitterness, no acid from the blood orange, restrained citrus hops. Quite drinkable, simple, no flaws. Clean palate. My qualm is that it came across as bland, not a lot of APA character and nothing that screamed blood orange.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, which I believe I got from AKA Frisco’s in Frederick.. Clear orange yellow color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Nice orange citrus, some biscuity bready hop, light bit of vanilla. Really nice, but subtle malt bill. Works well. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet, kind of zesty. Medium body. Super smooth. Good smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Super awesome texture to this, very refreshing, crisp, and drinkable. Much better than expected. Tasting very fresh.

On tap at the Elysian near Pike’s Place. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Soft musk and a bit of orange on the nose, but I’m certainly searching for it. Medium bodied, soft malt, a bit of musk, a touch of orange and dusty yeast. Soft musk, a bit of citrus. Dull, but decent enough.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Keyaki. Cloudy orange color. Very fruity nose of sweet peaches and oranges. Fuzzy, wheat flavor, candy-like sweetness that is very off-putting. No thanks.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange with a short head. Grassy and resinous American hops with acidic citrus pulp. Medium body, medium sweetness with assertive bitterness and acidic grip. Malt is thin and shaky, carbonation doesn’t do much, it ends up smelling like a humid brewery: raw and grassy and minty toothpaste hops, with equally raw and grainy malt, there’s your Cracklin’ Oat Bran cereal, now that you’ve brushed your teeth, have a glass of orange juice with your cereal. Drink this stuff for breakfast at least, to get the true effect.
