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 didnt know there was orange here, I would not detect it. Its more like, oh, thats 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.

snoworsummer (5174) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy copper orange with a thin white head. Tastes like bitter hops, pine, grapefruit, and orange. Smells like malt and orange. Thick feel, medium body, and low carbonation.

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 .

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Dark amber, reflects the blood orange. Soft white head and lace rings. Flavour has lots of citrus like biting an orange. Some hoppiness.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 13, 2015
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.

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.

chinchill (4527) - 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.

jbruner (4377) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Pours a hazy golden orange on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of mild bready malts and light clean citrus notes. Taste follows, more of the citrus, light bitterness, more than the nose here. Pretty decent.
