Hazy golden color/ white head. Smells mostly of floral, fruity hops. medium bodied. Nice pale ale honey biscuit malty flavors with some floral and fruit hoppage--maybe a little bit of the blood orange in here, hard to tell--tasty though

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Elysian Fields. Steps up much more as an APA than it does a fruit beer. Blood oranges fit the hop profile of a fresh APA so well that they really augment the intensity of those notes so well that they enhance the overall beer, rather than forcing everything else about the support to support a new identity as a fruit delivery system. Pours a cloudy bright bronzey medium amber with a loose, sudsy white-ish head. Big citrusy nose, showing blood oranges as well as bits of regular oranges and peaches. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast and caramel under a pleasant orange and blood orange mid palate. Crisp, refreshing easy drinker.
