Local pour at a pizza joint. Nice hazy orange color, white pillowy head. Nose is oranges, grapefruit. Taste was plenty of the same, nice hop bitterness. Mouthfeel was light and the finish was somewhat dry.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful golden honey with white head. Aroma heavy with grapefruit hops. Flavor is of bitter orange, hops, grapefruit, and other citrus fruits. Somewhat bitter and clean finish. Great!

kramer (5510) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy straw colored body under a one inch frothy white head that had very nice retention. The nose is pretty typical for an APA, nice fresh and juicy hops with a fairly dry crackery malt. It smalls pretty delicious, but I can’t say that I get much influence from the fruit in here. The hops have a very New Zealand quality to them, but no indication of what is used on the label. The flavor is just lightly bitter, much more of a fruity and juicy expression from the hops. The malt is dry and crackery with a light and thin finish. Very easy drinking and light bodied with fine fizzy carbonation. Not sure I really taste much from the blood oranges either, but I think that may be from the choice of hops in here. This is pretty enjoyable, I could drink a sixer of this pretty easy on a warm day.

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 can’t 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 it’s a characteristic of a few APAs that push too far out along a spectrum I would normally describe as metallic, but even that I’m not sure of. In any case, yeah, a ton of mustard detracts significantly.

Palme (3603) - 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. It’s 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 it’s more hoppy and bitter than sweet. I have to say that this is quite lovely actually. 16.06.2013

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.

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.

Bottle, picked up for $4.39 in Bozeman, MT. Hazy golden-yellow pour with a smallish white head. Spotty lacing. Nose is sweet with citrus hops and suggests the sweet citrus notes of lemonade. Good flavor from the blood oranges; a nice balance of citrus zest to the ‘fruitiness’ of the orange. This reminds me of fresh grapefruit, in addition to the blood orange. Mild, lingering bitters in the tail. I like this… I can’t believe how quick I emptied that glass. More please!

KansaiBeerLvrs (3565) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle at Imazato. Elysian superfuzz has a great blood orange hoppy aroma. It pours a gleaming gold pour with a wonderfully fruity hoppiness. Medi bodied with a soft pillowy mouthfeel. Man this is a solidly delicious pale ale.
