3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: cloudy orange with a creamy, dense near white head and decent, silky lacing. Aroma: orange (of course), but also grapefruit, passion fruit, a bit of mango, some vanilla, and a bit of pine; almost like a tropical/citrus creamsicle, but not that sweet. Taste: bitter citrus up front, with definite blood orange and grapefruit notes, over a lighter bed of slightly toasty malts that try, but fail, to balance. Finish: bitter, slightly dry, with lingering orange flavors. Notes: Plenty of citrus, as advertised. The bottle art was pretty funky and cool.

Bottle in Port Angeles with Scott and family. Aroma and flavor of pale ale and blood orange, which was a perfect pairing. Nice going on this one. Probably won't see another one, but I'd like to. Good beer, great recipe.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy yellow gold, thin qhite lacing. Medium bitter orange aroma. Flavor is spot on-blood orange with a crisp palate and great bitterness. More like a hoppy pale ale than a fruit beer. No sweetness or saccharine at all.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Logan Twp Giant Eagle. Pours a gorgeous, hazy orange with a huge, frothy white head. The nose is dominated by citrus hop notes, orange and lemon, cat pee and grass. Watery mouthfeel with lots of hop flavor, lemon orange and herbs, Not overly bitter, but chock full of hoppy goodness with out going overboard. Yummy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, from Mondial de la Bière shop, Mulhouse Sep 2012. Pours a murky orange, immediate fresh orange marmelade aroma, substituted by rather peachy and mango flavours than indistinct blood orange. Nice and dryish palate working in accord with sweet malt base and bitter c-hops. Easily sessionable, great light APA with the quality malt and hop base of a diluted IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium to light amber with heavy amounts of sediment (fruit) and a foamy head with little retention. Flavors fruity, floral, light pine and orange peel. Flavors pine, floral, slightly fruity hops, hints of tangerine and light grass. Medium bitterness, lightly sweet, and medium dry. Notice the orange in more of wheat comes off as tangerine but lightly. Nicely paired fruit that fits very well.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A fun summer pale that works! Pour is more hefe like in its cloudiness. Primary flavor note to me is more grapefruit than orange, over a pale base that provides a nice foundation. Tanginess lingers. A refreshing session at 5.4%! B+
