3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
