UXO (657) - CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Pours hazy pale gold with two fingers of loose white head, good retention, moderate lacing (4/5). Nose is orange peel, pine resin and floral hops, caramel malt (7/10). Taste is hop forward, then moderate caramel and citrus sweetness, finishing bitter (7/10). Medium body, moderate to low sustained carbonation, with a lingering bitter orange peel finish (4/5). I’m not sure what I was expecting, but that wasn’t it! That being said, the orange is actually very well done - its presence is more peel than pulp or juice, which works very well with the bitter hop character of the underlying APA. I guess I was expecting a sweet, orange juice-y character, but this is actually extremely restrained on the sweetness, imparting loads of citrus character without being sickly. And boy, does it linger! (15/20)

ACHops (900) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2015
On tap @ The Huddle. Pours hazy pale orange with thin lacy white head. Aroma is pale malt and earthy slightly bitter citrus on the back. Taste is chewy lightly sweet pale malt, and dry fresh citrus that melds with very light hops to create a unique flavor. The malt and bitterness of an IPA, just lacking in hop flavor. Odd. I liked it.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2013
Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Hazy straw color with a large white head. The aroma is full of blood orange and grapefruit notes with some wheat character thrown in. The flavor is similar. I get some pithy blood orange notes, as well as a little bit of juicy citrus. The wheat and biscuit character is present, as is some grass from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours amber with a white head. The aroma has a lot of citrus over a malt base. The flavor has the malt underneath with a nice holly balance. The orange comes in the after taste. Quite refreshing.

Gerbeer (2213) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 27, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with light head. Aromas of grapefruit and orange marmalade, light toasted malt and a touch of resin. Tastes like orange marmalade with bitter finish. A little watery but tasty enough for the ABV and easy to drink.

Draft. Golden pour white head. Citrus and a bit of orange. Bitter finish but not obnoxious. Good.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle in Port Angeles with Scott and family. Aroma and flavor of pale ale and blood orange, which was a perfect pairing. Nice going on this one. Probably won't see another one, but I'd like to. Good beer, great recipe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

monk191 (1217) - California, USA - JUL 18, 2013
A very nice unique beer. Pours a thick yellow with a light white head. Smells just like blood oranges. Lots in the taste as well, but smoothed out by the hops. Everything works well together. Had on tap at the brewpub. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerandhockey8 (239) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - AUG 5, 2013
On tap, Old Chicago, Bozeman MT. Pour is a cloudy yellow with an orange tinge to it, white thin head. Nose is distinct hops, hint of citrus as well. Taste is medium body, very bitter with a sweeter finish on the tail. The thing that got me is the actual blood orange taste at the end, very suprised. Nice beer.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 This beer has a cloudy medium golden color to it. The aroma has a citrus smell to it. The taste is light & very clean. Overall a nice Pale Ale.
