Pale hazed orange pour wit creamy white head and lace. Aroma is spicy floral and citrus with a nice malt kicker. Flavor is semi sweet malt and a nice floral bitter finish. Medium bodied and a tad fizzy still a nice beer.

kramer (5737) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy straw colored body under a one inch frothy white head that had very nice retention. The nose is pretty typical for an APA, nice fresh and juicy hops with a fairly dry crackery malt. It smalls pretty delicious, but I can’t say that I get much influence from the fruit in here. The hops have a very New Zealand quality to them, but no indication of what is used on the label. The flavor is just lightly bitter, much more of a fruity and juicy expression from the hops. The malt is dry and crackery with a light and thin finish. Very easy drinking and light bodied with fine fizzy carbonation. Not sure I really taste much from the blood oranges either, but I think that may be from the choice of hops in here. This is pretty enjoyable, I could drink a sixer of this pretty easy on a warm day.

nuplastikk (5615) - 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.

jgb9348 (5484) - 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.

EithCubes (5437) - 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), there’s citrus here, even getting into tangerine and and grapefruit and orange rind/pith, but the overall flavor just generally doesn’t agree with me.

reebtogi (5402) - 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.

vyvvy (5381) - 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.

joeneugs (5355) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 4, 2013
22 oz. bomber from Trader Joe’s. It pours a very effervescent light orange color with a fizzy off white head. The aroma is bready with hints of caramel and floral hops. Old school APA here. The flavor is the same. Nice floral and mildly citrus bitterness with a bready and very faintly caramel malt background. Not an incredibly exciting beer, but a solid APA.

bottle, moderate sweetness, some alcohol burn for a 5.4 % OUCH, and a lot of blood orange flavor, which is cool, its gimmicky, but cool.

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.
