Tap. Amber with small head. Nice pale ale, but no detectable blood orange.to me. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Terrific beer good blood orange flavors and colors. This was a very nice beer and the finish was dry. Light golden pale color hazy with a thin head. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle from Legacy. Hazy, pretty much opaque soft orange color. The aroma is hop-forward, somewhat chewy and actually smells stronger than it is, but not in a bad way. The body is deceptive, it is fairly big, but highly drinkable. The best thing about this beer is its level of refinement. The fruit component is understated, adding nuance to a solid base beer rather than becoming an overly fruited gimmick. In fact, if I didn’t know there was orange here, I would not detect it. It’s more like, oh, that’s where that balancing bit of acidity comes from. Solid malt profile, mainly pales, with briskly hopped. As with most Elysian beers, accessible and sophisticated at the same time. hayduke (5203) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Another bottle I brought to the Grand Tasting at RBSG in Pittsburgh that I had not sampled before.Poured orange with a white head. Nose of citrus hops and yup the orange. Medium body. Flavor shows a lot of the orange and the other citrus adds balance .Finished with some bitterness. Quite OK . hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 24, 2017
Rated on 5-24-2017. Bottle. The appearance is a medium sized off-white head that is mostly lasting, very hazy orange body, fizzy, lively, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, fruity, orange, floral, and malt. The flavor presents light-medium bitterness, orange citrus, fruity, lightly tart, moderately sweet, and malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. For me this is just a so-so tasty beer. The blood orange was a bit weird tasting in this beer and was somewhat of a turn off for me. This beer is a beer that I am not interested in drinking again.

Bottle at Imazato. Elysian superfuzz has a great blood orange hoppy aroma. It pours a gleaming gold pour with a wonderfully fruity hoppiness. Medi bodied with a soft pillowy mouthfeel. Man this is a solidly delicious pale ale. AdamChandler (5051) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 23, 2016
light orange with a 1 finger white head. citrus nose with a grainy undertone. citrus fades here and leaves me with a very light mouthfeel, light carb, a little orange juice contrencetrate and maybe some chewy malt. stevoj (5033) - 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. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Pours a golden orange color. Aromas of orange peel and citrus hops. Flavor of light malt and serious citrus. chinchill (4989) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2016 On tap and revisited with a 12 oz bottle in July 2016.
Hazy amber body with a good looking head.
Medium-light body with soft, medium carbonation.
Attractive, citrus hop dominated aroma and flavor. Just the right level of bitterness for style. Body is a touch too thin.
