Zeswaft (1344) - 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.

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.

jredmond (5039) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Vin, I believe shared with Pat, Pj, Dave, Sean and Judo. Pours a light hazy orange body with not much head, some minor lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and bitter citric hop. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium with notes of citrus fruits, citra hop, lemon peel and spice. Ok pale ale.

Tap. Amber with small head. Nice pale ale, but no detectable blood orange.to me.

Pure white head. Body is cloudy orange. Could be mistaken by accident. Slight orangy aroma.Flavor is actually on the sour side, not sweet like I expected from a blood orange. Only bought a single bottle to try. Now I wish I’d got the whole six pack!.

joeneugs (2934) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 4, 2013
22 oz. bomber from Trader Joe’s. It pours a very effervescent light orange color with a fizzy off white head. The aroma is bready with hints of caramel and floral hops. Old school APA here. The flavor is the same. Nice floral and mildly citrus bitterness with a bready and very faintly caramel malt background. Not an incredibly exciting beer, but a solid APA.

bb (6718) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Slightly hazy orange-amber beer with a cream head. Grapefruit and light pine aroma. Grapefruit and citrus flavor. Medium bodied. Grapefruit and citrus lingers with light pine and light earth.

stevoj (1707) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Normal pale ale aromas and taste, citrus from blood oranges softens the hop bitterness, but still has a dry finish. Overall good looking beer, medium creamy head and decent lacing. Hazy pale golden body, with some fruit and malt in the aroma, mild sweet flavor. Nice summertime brew.

NikkTwist (1397) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Very hazy orange gold pour with a cream egg shell head. Lace. Tons of citrus zest. Juicy and, well, fuzzy. Blood Orange juice with a slight shot of Worcestershire. Nicely unfiltered. Tastes good but not overly complicated.

alexsdad06 (4553) - Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2014
Draft at City Tap House DC. Pours a hazy golden color with orange highlights and a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have citrus peel, a splash of orange, floral notes, grass, lightly toasted bread with mild bitterness to the finish. A bit soft and thin mid palate. This is not one of my favorites from this brewery.
