meccahh69lol (355) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - JUN 7, 2017
Here is a solid, but uninspiring fruity hoppy bev from the solid, but oft just fine brewery Elysian. It pours a nice reddish amber with a light head and has a nice dry plummy orange smell that promises nice things. The taste is a smooth, kinda watery light hop chugalug with just enough backwash dryass blood orange lurking in the aftertaste to keep it interesting. A solid drinkable APA with an above average fruitiness level. Good for capping off a night of beers and pitaziki on the old Ivy League’s dime with some death metal and dresses.

From tap. Clear golden-amber with foamy white head, good retention and lacing. Orange nose for sure, lots of orange and tropical citrus in the mouth as well. Good hops kick and a juicy finish. Good warm weather choice.

Good taste, perfect orange aroma, just a little bit hoppy, good option for this summer

Not bad but not really anything special. It pours cloudy orange with only a little foam. The orange on the aroma is there, and its pleasant. The malt isnt entirely obscured, either. The front of the tongue is warm and malty, but the orange and the hops are there on the finish. This is OK.

superspak (6015) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2017
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy golden orange/amber color color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice desne soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big blood orange, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper/pine, honey, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/fruity hops, blood orange, and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big blood orange, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, honey, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/citrus peel/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of blood orange, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, pepper, pine, honey, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/fruity hops, blood orange, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance. Slight lingering hop/fruit astringency through the glass, but not overwhelming. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.4%. Overall this is a very nice fruited American pale ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/fruity hops, blood orange, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth, easy, and quite refreshing to drink; even with the increasing bitter/drying finish. Great vibrant/juicy fruit and hop flavors; with a nice balancing malt backbone. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Bif (2346) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - MAY 30, 2017
Pours a cloudy copper color with decent head. Aroma of fruit, citrus and bit of malt. Taste of fruit, slightly tart, with trace of malt sweetness. mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Moderate body, with a light summery feel to it. not too bad.

Enjoyed on tap at O’Neill Public House in Portland, OR while I was out there shooting a music video. No notes, just taking the rating from Untappd. Don’t let this review convince you to try or not try this beer.

hershiser2 (3667) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2017
Kroger bottle. Pours murky yellowish-orange. Aroma of citrus and paper. Flavor is mild, quite tame citrus. Very bland. Not much flavor here at all.
