Pours honey-amber colour with slight head. Aroma is tangy wth citrus. Taste isn’t overbearing sweet and actually has a nice pale ale slight bitter finish that pairs with the aroma well.

Cloudy orange color, white head and lots of lace. Orange hop flavor. Very natural tasting. Of the environment. Slightly bitter and good hop backbone.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours translucent marmalade orange with a very small head, barely any retention, and not much activity. Fragrant orange and grapefruit on the nose - very fruity and inviting.
Attack: crisp, half silky/half creamy, oncoming sharp bitterness
Mid-palate: fruity 5/10-sweet orange, grapefruit peel, malts, hints of pine
Finish: long lingering grapefruity-hopped intense bitter finish
Overall very balanced, drinkable, and a good-textured beer, but also quite aggressive with the hopped bitter finish.

Bottle at Columbia event. Aroma very slight, tart, sweet. Very nice, light body, finishes easy, 45 IBUs absolutely disappear, very easy drinking, although I would’ve liked more citrus taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy golden-orange with a thin, white head. Fruity, hoppy citrus aroma. Flavor is fruity, with a citrus hop element, and bitter blood orange that asserts itself in the finish. Quenching and quite drinkable, although the lasting bitter blood orange finish keeps it from going down too easily and out of lawnmower beer territory.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber pours a yellowish orange color with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of orange, citrus, and pine. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with an odd sour funk in the back end that makes it wierd. I?m assuming its the blood oranges used. Mouthfeel was medium with pretty good carbonation. Overall this pretty good initially, but the sour funky bitter aftertaste you get isnt very appealing. I like the blood orange beer they brewed for the Beers of the Apocalypse series way better. I hope they tweak the recipe a bit. Definitely different from most pale ales I?ve had.

On draught at roscoes - small frothy head. Cloudy golden color. Nose of funky yeast - pungent! Taste of blood orange very prevalent. Bitter taste and finish.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Smells hoppy, yeasty. Tastes like someone mixed an ipa with tart blood orange juice. Very tart and bitter, not in a good way. There is just way too much going on and none of it works together. Yuck.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a beautiful golden honey with white head. Aroma heavy with grapefruit hops. Flavor is of bitter orange, hops, grapefruit, and other citrus fruits. Somewhat bitter and clean finish. Great!
