Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle from Legacy. Hazy, pretty much opaque soft orange color. The aroma is hop-forward, somewhat chewy and actually smells stronger than it is, but not in a bad way. The body is deceptive, it is fairly big, but highly drinkable. The best thing about this beer is its level of refinement. The fruit component is understated, adding nuance to a solid base beer rather than becoming an overly fruited gimmick. In fact, if I didnít know there was orange here, I would not detect it. Itís more like, oh, thatís where that balancing bit of acidity comes from. Solid malt profile, mainly pales, with briskly hopped. As with most Elysian beers, accessible and sophisticated at the same time.

onceblind (5213) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2013
Hazy golden with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of ruby red grapefruit zest with an underlying grapefruit malt. Just from the aroma I would give this to a Texas born hop head. Flavor very well matches. Nice ruby red grapefruit tone, but with a light hoppy bitterness that doesnít dominate; bitterness is definitely there but itís mild overall, instead opting for the natural twang of the grapefruit. Pale grain and subtle caramel undertones.

EithCubes (5205) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle. Nose dank and piny with smooth citrus and lots of juicy blood orange, some caramel. Pours a gradient golden with a creamy white head. Medium bitterness, a little rubbery, medium body but thin and flat (not so much in carbonation texture but in being one continuous sheet), thereís citrus here, even getting into tangerine and and grapefruit and orange rind/pith, but the overall flavor just generally doesnít agree with me.

Terrific beer good blood orange flavors and colors. This was a very nice beer and the finish was dry. Light golden pale color hazy with a thin head.

jgb9348 (5010) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Super hazy golden coloured body with a beige and yellow tint and a ridiculously nicely microfoamed golden coloured head - this looks great. Aroma of bright, fresh grassy and herbal hops with some sweetness, citrus and a good dose of resin at the end. Light to Medium-bodied; Mildish, malty, earthy and floral flavours at first with some oranges, yeast and bread noticeable. Aftertaste is very minimal and only showing some very light grassy hops, no malt, no sweetness and no complexity. Overall, an amazing looking and smelling beer, but sadly - it stops there. It makes sense at only 5.4%abv, but I wish it tasted as good as it looked and smelled! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Brown Jug (Spenard) in Anchorage, Alaska on 04-October-2013 for US$4.99 sampled at home on the opposite end of the country at home in Washington on 19-November-2013.

nuplastikk (4951) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2013
12oz bottle courtesy of Anndiesel. Thick, unfiltered orange-tan body. Massive meringue type head. Pleasant tropical orange aroma. An interesting concoction, accentuates the citrus and brings an orange flavor into the mix. A little sweet and sugary, the artificial flavor isnít a bonus. Assertive hops keep it going though. Not a bad beverage, but not the best beer.

Dark amber, reflects the blood orange. Soft white head and lace rings. Flavour has lots of citrus like biting an orange. Some hoppiness.

reebtogi (4608) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
Sampled during VCBW 2013 at the River Rock Casino Resort pouring a hazy pale golden orange color with a small white head that leaves some decent lacing behind. Aroma is mild but pleasant with grains and orange zest. Taste is a light grass and orange zesty bitterness with a light malty sweetness in good balance. Light bodied with adequate carbonation leaving a nice sensation on the palate. A well done pale ale that I recommend to others.

tiong (4564) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2014
Draught @ Elysian Brewing, Seattle, WA

Pours yellowish orange with a small head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, fruits, some blood orange and grapefruit. Taste is hoppy, fruity and a bit sweet juicy with hints of blood orange and citrus. Finish is sweet, malty and hoppy with some juicy notes. Refreshing and hoppy pale ale.

vyvvy (4557) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2014
Sampled at Schlaflyís Repeal of Prohibition festival 2014 - Pours hazy orange with an off-white head. The aroma has orange, smooth wheat and some cream. It has a medium rough body with moderate carbonation. The taste starts drier with some orange, but not as much as the aroma and a papery aspect. The finish is very cardboard-ish. This was okay, but didnít do much for me.
