BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2016
12oz bottle into a Corsendonk badged tulip on 23rd May 2016 while on holiday in California. Blood orange particles floating in an orange sea is what it looked like and it had an aroma and taste to match. Different.

Draught @ Elysian Brewing, Seattle, WA

Pours yellowish orange with a small head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, fruits, some blood orange and grapefruit. Taste is hoppy, fruity and a bit sweet juicy with hints of blood orange and citrus. Finish is sweet, malty and hoppy with some juicy notes. Refreshing and hoppy pale ale.

PhillyCraft (7228) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle, pours super hazed orange juice color light head and lacing, notes of heavy blood orange zest, hops, citrus. Not as bad as other Elysians but I prefer straight forward hoppy pales. Slightly underrated.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty straw, orange hue, little sudsy white head, no real lacing.   Faint citrusy hop aroma, slightly floral as well.   All very minor.   Moderate bitterness up front, a touch mealy, with a very soft pith and peel citrus based background.   Blood oranges?   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft hop finish, citrus pith and peel.   I thought it would be a bit sweeter, but it was not.   Decent, but middle of the road.

Aroma is orange/fruit, citrus peel and slightly perfumed. The flavor is orange, fruit, malts and a spicy hop finish.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy straw colored body under a one inch frothy white head that had very nice retention. The nose is pretty typical for an APA, nice fresh and juicy hops with a fairly dry crackery malt. It smalls pretty delicious, but I can’t say that I get much influence from the fruit in here. The hops have a very New Zealand quality to them, but no indication of what is used on the label. The flavor is just lightly bitter, much more of a fruity and juicy expression from the hops. The malt is dry and crackery with a light and thin finish. Very easy drinking and light bodied with fine fizzy carbonation. Not sure I really taste much from the blood oranges either, but I think that may be from the choice of hops in here. This is pretty enjoyable, I could drink a sixer of this pretty easy on a warm day.
