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.

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.

Cloudy orange pour from 22oz bottle at home. Grapefruit and tangy aroma. Smooth fruity citrus taste. Slightly bitter with mild hops. Easy drinking and good

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz single from Roths Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem.
Pours a rather attractive murky orange colour with a nice sized thick white head.
For a pale this has strong resiney/pine hop aromas,along with some orange peel..nice but odd for a pale
Again strong hop flavours this time more fruit with the pine..some orange pith in the back and a sweet fruity finish.
OK mouthfeel about average for style..
Nice drinkable beer..but I would say this is more an IPA than an APA or at least it blurs the line!

Draft at craft ale house. Pours hazy orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma has plenty of floral notes, light pine, some light citrus. The taste is bitter up front with a nice balance of orange peel, grapefruit, grassy good. Really nice.

Bomber at Lake Wenatchee.
Red-orange pour, foamy head. Pine, citrus, orange juice aroma. Blood orange and juicy hops in the flavor. Soapy bitterness on the long finish. Nice before-noon drinker, mimosa for the beer set.
