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.

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.

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

nuplastikk (4708) - 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 isn’t a bonus. Assertive hops keep it going though. Not a bad beverage, but not the best beer.

onceblind (4623) - 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 doesn’t dominate; bitterness is definitely there but it’s mild overall, instead opting for the natural twang of the grapefruit. Pale grain and subtle caramel undertones.

reebtogi (4388) - 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.

dmac (4213) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2014
12oz single from Crossroads. Thus was a rather boring pale ale. The milky orange body sat under an average sized fiamy white head and had a little extra citrus juciness in the aroma that didn’t carry over to the grainy bready flavor. Meh.

boFNjackson (4176) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle... Poured amber/orange with a white head. Nice pale. Bitterness and hoppy tones but balanced with a good amount of bready malts. Citrus, pine, and earthy tones rounded it out. Grainy finish.

vyvvy (4135) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2014
Sampled at Schlafly’s 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 didn’t do much for me.

jfb (4088) - Freising, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2013
(bottle) pours a murky golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of orange peel, vanilla and puff pastry, slightly resinous, with a hint of crème brûlée. flavour is mostly the same, with big notes of bread dough, orange peel, a hint of yeast and a light sweetness in the medium-bitter finish. medium to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.
