12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, tiny bubbled, very well retained, off white head, with some lacing, over a very hazy, gold (SRM 5) body....nose is heavy citrus (orange in type), light cereal, minimal hop notes, no esters.....taste is citrus with grapefruit, orange, blood orange, lime (a fruit salad), minimal esters, light hop honey floral notes, finishing with a lingering bitterness....mouth feel, medium body, moderate astringency, moderate acid finish, with low carbonation. This is not an APA, it is rather a spice, herb, vegetable variant. The APA is lightly present, with the malts and hops nicely balanced. However they are both dominated, as is the yeast contributions, by the fruit additions. It is not an unpleasant beer, it just isnít an APA. Rating above to enjoyment, with rating below to style. BJCP 6/2/10/4/5

Bottle from Spirits Manahawkin. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange color with a whipped topping-like head. Aroma is of of mild orange cream sickle, fresh orange peel, light grains, some mild sweetness, and a touch off citrusy bitterness. Taste is orange zest, grains, some dough, mild sweetness, and some hoppy, bitter citrus. Nice, easy drinking beer.

Medium sized, white head with fair retention and skimpy lace. Hazy, light copper, gold hued brew. nose is soft with citrus and pale malts.Body is lightly medium with a tingly little carbonation, lightly resiny and juicy. Pleasant fruitiness from the hops, little tropical and juicy with a dry, pale malt biscuity note. Dry, fruity finish, tame bite.. Enjoyable lil bugger. Bottle from statelineliquors.

IndianaRed (2416) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2014
220z Bottle. Pours looking like a standard Pale. Aroma of crisp citrusy hoips but not particularly fresh. Might be an old bottle as it was on sale and the local grocery store. Light crisp body and appropriate bitterness for a PA. A touch of bitter orange peel/pith to give it a bit of character. Decent.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Growler. Very hazy orange with a small, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is lots of citrus peel with some pine, malt and honey. Flavor is sweet orange, clean malt and medium hop bitterness. Lighter body with a dryish finish. Nice pale, lots of natural orange flavor that works well with the hops and malt.

I was expecting a lot more from this beer considering Elysianís pedigree. I didnít get much Blood Orange or even citrus taste and it wasnít that hoppy either. Label was cool though.

Not at all bad. Citrus orange aroma, cloudy orange colour. Citrus from the hop, some seville orange in the finish.

Draft. Golden pour white head. Citrus and a bit of orange. Bitter finish but not obnoxious. Good.
