12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a hazy...should I say it? Okay. Pours a hazy orange color. The head is a one finger offwhite shade thats very bubbly in its texture. Some sheeted lacing is left behind as well. S: Pleasant tones of mango, pine, Simcoe cattiness, and crackery malt abound. I also pick up a hint of blood orange, as well - especially when it opens up - but given the advertising of blood oranges, Id expect it to smell less like a typical Simcoe-hopped pale ale. To be fair, though, blood orange is a VERY common note in pale ales... T: It starts off with touches of pine and mango. After the midpoint is where the advertised blood oranges comes through, creating a juicy yet bitter finish. Its not superbly interesting, all told, however it does live up to its billing. M: Not as clean as Id like it to be. Also a bit on the heavy side in terms of texture. Pleasantly bitter and carbonated, though. O: The use of blood oranges here isnt enough to make this stand out from the scores of pale ales on the market. Id reckon its worth a try, just dont expect to be blown away.

tap at JKs. Figured this would be considered a session IPA from the taste. Very easy to drink - very nice beer

Hazy orange pour with a two finger off white head. Aroma is sweet and tart orange, cracker, a hint of spicy citrus, mango and fruity floral notes. Flavor is loaded with sweet, tart, bitter orange, biscuit, earthy and spicy citrus, a little mango. Creamy feel, medium carbonation. Good stuff,

Pours a hazy pale orange color with a small off white head. Nice citrusy hop aroma, with lots of orange and sweet malt. This is a nice refreshing APA. Taste is orange, some grapefruit, sweet malts, with a nice hoppy finish.

9/9/16. On tap at Taphouse, Savannah. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Okay aroma, light citrus, pale malts. Better flavor, tropical fruits, pineapple, blood orange, dank, just enough malt to back it up. Tasty.

Draft at Judy Collins concert at Live At Ludlow Garage on August 20, 2016. Cloudy orange/yellow hue, moderate citrus/hoppy nose, flavor like the nose with a slight cardboard taste lowering the rating. I havent had this beer before but it seems like the megabrewer hasnt messed it up too much.

Bottle to pint glass. Aroma is straight orange with a white wheat malt background. Hazy orange with moderate, sustained white head. Taste is orange and stone ground cracker. Thinnish mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish.

I had this one at Thirstys, Market Street in York, PA. This is one place I simply forgot about until last night (and a police escort too, lol) On tap in a simple 12 oz. plastic cup - I was waiting for them to make my supper.) It poured cloudy orange, one finger frothy, near white head which laced and retained quite well in plastic. Aroma of caramel malts and citrus fruit. I was impressed by its balance but didnt get a whole lot of blood orange from it. Light bodied, moderately carbonated and it had a nice smooth mouth feel going on in there. Finishes on the sweet side. I will re-rate this one again when I find it in a bottle. Good stuff.
