jfb (5299) - 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.

PhillyCraft (5238) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle, pours super hazed orange juice color light head and lacing, notes of heavy blood orange zest, hops, citrus. Not as bad as other Elysians but I prefer straight forward hoppy pales. Slightly underrated.

kaser (5235) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
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

dmac (5233) - 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.

Beershine (5219) - 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 didn’t know there was orange here, I would not detect it. It’s more like, oh, that’s 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.

burg326 (5217) - Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Poured an amber color with aromas of hops, citrus, light orange, and some bitterness. Flavors were light malt followed by some citrus and feint blood orange. A little disappointed here wanted more blood orange to come through.

altonbrownd (5176) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2016
Bottle from Beers and Cheers. Golden orange body with medium head. Nose is hoppy, floral, and of oranges. Taste is oranges, hops, pine. Nice and creamy texture. Slight amount of zestiness. Smooth finish. Enjoyable.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Dark amber, reflects the blood orange. Soft white head and lace rings. Flavour has lots of citrus like biting an orange. Some hoppiness.

mkel07 (4880) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2014
On tap at Brewski 030814. Very cloudy in the glass with a tiny head that is there one minute and gone the next. More grapefruit than blood orange in the flavour but it is still quite tasty.
