Reid (1944) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2013
12 oz single from Roths Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $1.80 Pours a rather attractive murky orange colour with a nice sized thick white head. For a pale this has strong resiney/pine hop aromas,along with some orange peel..nice but odd for a pale Again strong hop flavours this time more fruit with the pine..some orange pith in the back and a sweet fruity finish. OK mouthfeel about average for style.. Nice drinkable beer..but I would say this is more an IPA than an APA or at least it blurs the line!

(bottle) pours a murky golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of orange peel, vanilla and puff pastry, slightly resinous, with a hint of crème brûlée. flavour is mostly the same, with big notes of bread dough, orange peel, a hint of yeast and a light sweetness in the medium-bitter finish. medium to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

jgb9348 (4848) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Super hazy golden coloured body with a beige and yellow tint and a ridiculously nicely microfoamed golden coloured head - this looks great. Aroma of bright, fresh grassy and herbal hops with some sweetness, citrus and a good dose of resin at the end. Light to Medium-bodied; Mildish, malty, earthy and floral flavours at first with some oranges, yeast and bread noticeable. Aftertaste is very minimal and only showing some very light grassy hops, no malt, no sweetness and no complexity. Overall, an amazing looking and smelling beer, but sadly - it stops there. It makes sense at only 5.4%abv, but I wish it tasted as good as it looked and smelled! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Brown Jug (Spenard) in Anchorage, Alaska on 04-October-2013 for US$4.99 sampled at home on the opposite end of the country at home in Washington on 19-November-2013.

Zeswaft (1397) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Cloudy orange and frothy white head. Aroma of biscuit malt and orange. Orange flavor pairs perfectl with citrus hops and balanced by a healthy maltiness. More of a citrusy ipa than fruit beer.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2013
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.

PhillyCraft (3437) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle, pours super hazed orange juice color light head and lacing, notes of heavy blood orange zest, hops, citrus. Not as bad as other Elysians but I prefer straight forward hoppy pales. Slightly underrated.
