First visual impression looked like excess yeast in the bottle which was not the case. Beer poured with a nice white head that didn’t not last very long after pour. Very citrusy in the nose with a light malt smell. Has a great bite from the hops, I wish the hops tasted a little more citrusy. Also pretty hot for it being 5.4%abv. Moderate Carbonation gives a nice crisp taste with a dry finish from the hops. Overall it could have been a little more maltier to balance some of bitterness and hide some of the up front alcohol .

Bottle. Amber in colour, with a slight, white, head and moderate fizziness. Sweetish, apricot and peach aroma, with a touch of floral hop. Flavour had plenty more citrus character, crisp malts and a dry finish. Good.

furthur (365) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle, orange/amber beer, big sudsy white head, great lacing. Aroma is sprucy/onion, and grapefruit. Taste is pale malt, faint grapefruit, some orangey juciness. Palate is smooth, but light, carbonation moderate.

4 oz pour from tap into a cylindrical tasting glass at the brewery in Seattle. Light orange and hazy with a light white head. Nose is sweet and pleasant orange. Medium body, crisp, and creamy. Really nice, kind of a thicker pils body. Taste is great. A solid, but not obtrusive, malt backbone, with nice hops bitterness up front and tasty blood orange citrus throughout. Leaves a little orange on the tounge, like taking a bite out of the fruit. I could see myself drinking this on a hot day at home or in the sun at the beach.

Draft. Colored like apricot skin, moderately hazy, with a fuzzy white head that recedes quickly. Bright orange peel and grass in the nose -- very hop and citrus-focused. Funky orange juice and a distinct cracker malt note emerge as well. Orange pith and sharp hops lead the flavor, followed by citrus juice, with an acidic bite. A shot of honey balances out the finish, but it leans bitter overall -- a bite of orange that gets some pith. Medium body, soft and smooth. Carbonation is pretty high, nearly painful. Lingering orange acidity. A nice display of orange flavor, with citrus additions that make it drink almost like an IPA.

TimE (3985) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 16, 2015
The acidity from the blood orange is fairly noticable and makes for an unusual mouthfeel. Fairly heavy malty mouth. Decent bitterness. Nice stuff.

Blairgus (3043) - California, USA - MAY 15, 2015
15 May 2015, tap. Orange, slightly hazy. Nose is thin body and mildly fizzy. Sweet orange juice up front and orange pith at the end. Pretty good.

bigda83 (375) - Jamestown, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Poured a clear golden orange. Aromas of orange and some sweet malt. Flavor was orange and light. Light body and thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and smooth finish. Decent light beer for summer, but nothing I’d seek out.

mjg74 (2730) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle from Roth’s. Very hazy on the pour. Amber with a little red in color. Sweetish nose with a touch of hops. Sweet and malty base. A bit of hop character. The maltiness seems to dominate. Might be a hint of fruitiness. Fairly standard sweet pale ale. Once I got used to the sweetness, some nice hop character shows through the finish.

ACHops (926) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2015
On tap @ The Huddle. Pours hazy pale orange with thin lacy white head. Aroma is pale malt and earthy slightly bitter citrus on the back. Taste is chewy lightly sweet pale malt, and dry fresh citrus that melds with very light hops to create a unique flavor. The malt and bitterness of an IPA, just lacking in hop flavor. Odd. I liked it.
