3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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, 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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 fl oz bottle from Potsdam NY, served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Murky orange-amber with a smallish off-white head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Nice orange peel, slightly dank, grapefruit, a bit dusty, some light malt support, a touch fruity/estery, maybe a little medicinal/band-aid?
Palate: Medium body, loose carbonation.
Flav.: Nice grapefruit and orange peel, dank, slightly resinous, a little more cereal and wheat(?), kinda yeasty, good; dry with decent bitterness and a citrus peel, dank finish.
Pretty nice...nicer than expected.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was a nice surprise of a pale ale. Aroma was nice. Just a hint of orange with sweet light malt. Pour was a nice light medium cloudy gold with a one finger white head. Taste is very full for such a small ABV. Just slightly sweet with notes of orange kept in check by the sweet juicy malt. No hops here. Decent carbonation. Nice beer

Pours amber with a white head. The aroma has a lot of citrus over a malt base. The flavor has the malt underneath with a nice holly balance. The orange comes in the after taste. Quite refreshing.
