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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, from Mondial de la BiŤre 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.
