Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is well hopped. Thought I would get more of the blood orange but the hops are here in a big way. Flavor is or course hoppy but then comes that blood orange to make it even more of a citrus blast. Finish is dry but also a bit bitter and tart. This was a darn fine beer, more hoppy than I thought but the oranges are here as well.

Palme (3637) - 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. Itís 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 itís more hoppy and bitter than sweet. I have to say that this is quite lovely actually. 16.06.2013

beerbill (3599) - 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.

probstblueribbon (3577) - 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.

stevoj (3534) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Normal pale ale aromas and taste, citrus from blood oranges softens the hop bitterness, but still has a dry finish. Overall good looking beer, medium creamy head and decent lacing. Hazy pale golden body, with some fruit and malt in the aroma, mild sweet flavor. Nice summertime brew.

IndianaRed (3430) - 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.

Ron (3389) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle. Mild hop and citrus aroma, bit of sweetness. Pleasant orange note. Cloudy amber-golden with thin off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts fairly dry with nice taste of orange and grapefruit and some bitterness. Finishes with lingering bitter.

Bulk_Carrier (3344) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAY 9, 2014
The appearance was a hazy orange color with a one and half finger white foamy head that dies to a lumpy looking film coating the top of the beer, decent amount of light foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass. The smell had some orange with light spice combined and amplifying a nice refreshing aspect. The taste was mainly sweet through the orange and spice. Itís kinda like drinking orange juice to an extent. Sticky sweet orange aftertaste leading into a nice crisp refreshing dry finish. M: light to medium, sessionable - yes, ABV feels very appropriate for what is told, carbonation is good for the style and for me as thereís the appropriate amount for an American Pale Ale lending a nice sweet coating around the mouth and tongue. Overall, I say this is a pretty good APA well worthy of coming back to and well worthy of having it with its respected food.
