poisoneddwarf (1821) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - SEP 5, 2013
12 oz bottle. Aroma is perfumy, doughy, chalky; the orange makes itself known after it warms up. Pours hazy orange with a medium collapsing white head. Taste is mostly bitter with a nice orange component that provides a bit of tartness; also some graininess in the finish. Prickly carbonation, medium body. Not bad.

bhensonb (11796) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Bomber from Trader Joeís in Davis, CA. Pours hazy amber with a slight creamy white head. Aroma seems grapefruit. Med body or nearly. Flavor is zesty - but seems more grapefruit rind than anything else. So much so that Iím not really getting much malt - other than itís there supporting. Iíd support this as a low ABV IPA! Itís quite tasty.

Ferris (6243) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle - IPA like citrus and orange notes. Orange with a rich white head. Starts with a tiny hit of bitterness and finishes with a pithy orange. Orange is very nice, but I am having trouble drinking the whole bottle.

humlelala (1059) - DENMARK - MAR 28, 2014
(65 cl bottle courtesy of the proprieteur of Chez Clem, big thanks! BBD: Not visible) Pours a semi-clear golden with medium, off-white head that fades somewhat leaving a good amount of surface film and beautiful lacework. Aroma is orange peel and honey. Oily texture, lively carbonation, medium to light body and a balanced, slightly sweet and floral finish with aroma notes. Flavour has aroma notes and not a terrible amount of bitterness yet still balanced. Quite drinkable and enjoyable.

Beerathon (1384) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2014
Easy drinking pale ale that comes through on both orange flavors and those of a typical pale ale. Yum.

Doghair (272) - Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2014
Mild malt and hop aroma. Taste is citrusy hop with a nice malt backbone. The orange comes through with a nice tartness. Great beer.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle from Legacy. Hazy, pretty much opaque soft orange color. The aroma is hop-forward, somewhat chewy and actually smells stronger than it is, but not in a bad way. The body is deceptive, it is fairly big, but highly drinkable. The best thing about this beer is its level of refinement. The fruit component is understated, adding nuance to a solid base beer rather than becoming an overly fruited gimmick. In fact, if I didnít know there was orange here, I would not detect it. Itís more like, oh, thatís where that balancing bit of acidity comes from. Solid malt profile, mainly pales, with briskly hopped. As with most Elysian beers, accessible and sophisticated at the same time.
