4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: citrus, blood orange(duh) smooth, not very acidic.
Appearance: light amber/yellow, mild cloudiness, finger of head, nice lacing.
Taste: Awesome! This Tastes more like an IPA than I was expecting. I was thinking it was going to be a smooth light orangey fruit ale but there is a strong presence of hops that give it a similar flavour to Driftwood’s Fat Tug IPA which is my absolute second favourite beer at the moment. This is hoppy, citrusy, complex and flavourful ending with a nice blood orange and yeast aftertaste that fades quickly.
Overall: This is not at all what I was expecting to find when I bought the bottle(I think a more mild and fruity blood orange beer would be ideal as a summer seasonal) but it is a delicious brew worthy of note. The fact that it reminds me of one of my favourite IPAs definitely helps and probably affected my scoring a little bit.
Superfuzz, I can dig it. (Yeah i just threw in a tag line, so what?)

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2013 Surpisingly decent color, but very subtle so could be overlooked. Caramel undertones in the aroma work against its summer beer persona. With the citrus profile, makes an excellent change up for a long evening session beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy yellow gold, thin qhite lacing. Medium bitter orange aroma. Flavor is spot on-blood orange with a crisp palate and great bitterness. More like a hoppy pale ale than a fruit beer. No sweetness or saccharine at all.

A fun summer pale that works! Pour is more hefe like in its cloudiness. Primary flavor note to me is more grapefruit than orange, over a pale base that provides a nice foundation. Tanginess lingers. A refreshing session at 5.4%! B+

Bitter, slightly hoppy. Citrus quality stands out in the flavor, and is prominent in the aroma.

Bottle from Logan Twp Giant Eagle. Pours a gorgeous, hazy orange with a huge, frothy white head. The nose is dominated by citrus hop notes, orange and lemon, cat pee and grass. Watery mouthfeel with lots of hop flavor, lemon orange and herbs, Not overly bitter, but chock full of hoppy goodness with out going overboard. Yummy.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours hazy orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma has plenty of floral notes, light pine, some light citrus. The taste is bitter up front with a nice balance of orange peel, grapefruit, grassy good. Really nice.
