Red-orange pour, foamy head. Pine, citrus, orange juice aroma. Blood orange and juicy hops in the flavor. Soapy bitterness on the long finish. Nice before-noon drinker, mimosa for the beer set. 7/4/8/4/15=3.8

Revist at home, 12 oz bottles 4/21/14.

Lighter than red-orange pour this time (was I imagining before, or has it changed?) Not aggressive at all, but the orange and citrus hops blend just right to make for a delicious beer. Super-drinkable. Bump to 7/4/8/4/16=3.9

(One of many) revisit(s) 5/28/14. OMFG. I suddenly get it. I had no idea what Prufrock was talking about when he described a mustard thing going on that ruins this beer -- now I totally get it. This one has mustard all up in your face on the front end of the beer. I canít really pin in down to a particular hop or other ingredient, nor can I even specify other beers that suffer from the same. I guess itís a characteristic of a few APAs that push too far out along a spectrum I would normally describe as metallic, but even that Iím not sure of. In any case, yeah, a ton of mustard detracts significantly.

Palme (3380) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2013
On tap @ Mudville 9. A really good looking big almost cartoon looking white dense head on top of a deep blurry, not cloudy but deep blurry almost glowing orange golden body. Looks like a million bucks. Nice fruity and a little bit tropical nose. I get a good dash of mango and peaches, some soft yeasty traces and the orange zest is also present. Not much but there. Itís above average on the carbonation and the mouthfeel is light oily. Nice bitter fruity flavors. More orange zest in the taste really, I get lots of grassy hops, peaches, some sweetness, but itís more hoppy and bitter than sweet. I have to say that this is quite lovely actually. 16.06.2013

deusax (442) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle @Just Beer. Aroma full of hops, with citrus notes. Gold with thin head. Taste is hoppy as, with a hint of bitterness, grapefruit notes. Very well balanced beer.

Maxbier (258) - Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Pours very cloudy golden color with two finger white head. Aroma s initially very hoppy bu if you give it a minute the blood orange citrus aroma comes through. Flavor is medium body and very hoppy, hop flavor/aroma/& bitter. Blood orange is just right not too fruity and not impossible to detect. The hops and citrus complement each other nicely.

Luvystypotables (657) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2014
A superb aroma of oranges, hops and dried fruit. Cloudy golden colored beer with a short lasting white head. Complex taste of spice, oranges and a hint of pepper. Creamy feel with a bitter sweet finish.

Definitely citrus orange zesty aroma. Very little head. Enjoyed beer from the tap at Elysian restaurant across from century link. A good summer beer when you're not in the mood for a IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy orange pour from 22oz bottle at home. Grapefruit and tangy aroma. Smooth fruity citrus taste. Slightly bitter with mild hops. Easy drinking and good

stantheman (654) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2014 On tap at Hops Northwest in New Westminster. A good one for sure. More notes to follow. Apologies in advance.

And July 25, 2014 at The Tangent in Vancouver. A murky orange beer with white head. The blood orange infusion is self-evident and that in a good way. Just enough hop and malt to distinguish it from a fruit cooler. A nice summer refreshment. 3.8.

Expected a bit more battering from the blood orange. Sessionable beer. Good head retention, good color, thought it needed more nose. Good beer.

bartlebier (1723) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - OCT 9, 2013
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.
