On tap at Sunset Grille. Review based on pint at Darby's. Cloudy orange. Nice lacing from minimal cap. Aroma of oranges and zest spritz, a touch of pine, and candied sugar. Taste is pretty weak citrus and hop. Good, dry finish.

Bottle->shaker. Hazy light orange with small offwhite head. Orange, citrus, slight hops and malt. A little gimmicky. Eh.

I wasn’t expecting much as I had a previous beer from this brewery and I wasn’t a fan. But I think this is surprisingly good

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a cloudy light golden orange with and a small white head. Aroma of fuzzy orange zest and some biscuity malt. Flavour is very bitter, bringing out dry bitter notes of orange zest, some citrus notes, and fuzzy biscuity malts. Very fuzzy and zesty. Unspectacular but drinkable. Decent.

A fruity American Pale Ale. Good quality, best enjoyed in the big pint sized bottle.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Nose dank and piny with smooth citrus and lots of juicy blood orange, some caramel. Pours a gradient golden with a creamy white head. Medium bitterness, a little rubbery, medium body but thin and flat (not so much in carbonation texture but in being one continuous sheet), there’s citrus here, even getting into tangerine and and grapefruit and orange rind/pith, but the overall flavor just generally doesn’t agree with me.

Bottle. Judging by other reviews, I think something may have been "off" with my bottle. Got some orange, but there was a lot of metallic flavor. Fortunately, I am still alive after drinking it to write this review, so I can tell you to look out for this. Hopefully you guys will have a better experience!

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 bottle pours a very murky gold with a white, sticky head. Aroma of light citrus, a little sulfur, a little sweaty, a bit papery. Flavor is more very light citrus, a bit more paper. If it didn’t say blood oranges were added, I wouldn’t have noticed. Just likened the citrus to the hops. More orange, less oxidation.

I was expecting a lot more from this beer considering Elysian’s pedigree. I didn’t get much Blood Orange or even citrus taste and it wasn’t that hoppy either. Label was cool though.
