Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2013
On tap @ Mudville 9. A really good looking big almost cartoon looking white dense head on top of a deep blurry, not cloudy but deep blurry almost glowing orange golden body. Looks like a million bucks. Nice fruity and a little bit tropical nose. I get a good dash of mango and peaches, some soft yeasty traces and the orange zest is also present. Not much but there. It’s above average on the carbonation and the mouthfeel is light oily. Nice bitter fruity flavors. More orange zest in the taste really, I get lots of grassy hops, peaches, some sweetness, but it’s more hoppy and bitter than sweet. I have to say that this is quite lovely actually. 16.06.2013

beerbill (3538) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very hazy pale gold tinged with a pinkish red and topped with a moderate white head. Very pleasant aroma that is filled with citrus fruitiness but specifically notable is the presence of blood orange. The flavor begins with husky malt, a bit grainy, which is probably my least favorite component to this beer. Finish is citrusy and again, the blood orange is very prominent. Grapefruit and orange bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied.

joeneugs (3485) - 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.

PhillyCraft (3441) - 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.

probstblueribbon (3067) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
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.
