3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
