3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of orange and a malty base. Not a bad aroma. Taste is malt base with a bitter dry almost medicinal aftertaste. Finish and aftertaste are not very good. Get some orange in the taste as well but just a moderate amount. Medicinal finish really detracts from this one.

Bottle from cousin, drank from bottle. Aroma is serious orange, citrus. Taste is light, orange, serious orange. Nice beer, just all fruit, no pale ale resemblance.

On tap. Aroma of oranges, grapefruit, blood orange (surprise surprise). Flavor is mildly hoppy, orange, maltiness in the middle of the mouth. Slightly hoppy finish. Not bad.

Bottle pour. Clear yellow-gold in glass. Nose is hard orange candies and not a lot else. Taste has some blood oranges and some sweet biscuit malts. Light body. Sweet throughout. Juicy. Not for me.

On draft at Bill’s Bar and Burger, downtown, NYC. The blood orange flavor is unique and refreshing, without overpowering. Supporting an otherwise pedestrian pale ale.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Citrus hops nose. Clear copper/orange color. Minimal head lacing. First impression is a well balanced pale ale with cascade hops dominating. The finish leaves something to be desired leaving the taste of a very* bitter orange peel.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle thanks to Bill! Pours crystal clear golden amber with a small off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly with some lacing. Aroma is honey, grain, grass, a bit of orange. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, tons of orange and orange zest in the flavor. Light body, medium carbonation. A bit harsh with the zesty bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4oz pour at the brewery. Pours a clear orange with some very thin white head. Nose has a lot of orange peel, some mild key lime too, a hint of sweet malt. Flavor has a lot of orange soda without the carbonation, sweet, citrus, some tangerine too. Watery finish. A bit too sweet, could have used a little more bitterness to round it out.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. I just tried this last night for the first time. Having tried Elysian’s Blood Orange, I have to say this one compares poorly against it. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first two sips and leaves very little lace. Not much aroma to speak of at all. The flavor is very mild blood orange along with some weak malt. Very mild hops bitterness at the finish. Light-medium bodied. Disappointing.
