Not at all bad. Citrus orange aroma, cloudy orange colour. Citrus from the hop, some seville orange in the finish.

I was expecting a lot more from this beer considering Elysian’s pedigree. I didn’t get much Blood Orange or even citrus taste and it wasn’t that hoppy either. Label was cool though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
220z Bottle. Pours looking like a standard Pale. Aroma of crisp citrusy hoips but not particularly fresh. Might be an old bottle as it was on sale and the local grocery store. Light crisp body and appropriate bitterness for a PA. A touch of bitter orange peel/pith to give it a bit of character. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 bottle pours a very murky gold with a white, sticky head. Aroma of light citrus, a little sulfur, a little sweaty, a bit papery. Flavor is more very light citrus, a bit more paper. If it didn’t say blood oranges were added, I wouldn’t have noticed. Just likened the citrus to the hops. More orange, less oxidation.
