On tap at Brewski 030814. Very cloudy in the glass with a tiny head that is there one minute and gone the next. More grapefruit than blood orange in the flavour but it is still quite tasty. ganache (5897) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle. Nose dank and piny with smooth citrus and lots of juicy blood orange, some caramel. Pours a gradient golden with a creamy white head. Medium bitterness, a little rubbery, medium body but thin and flat (not so much in carbonation texture but in being one continuous sheet), there’s citrus here, even getting into tangerine and and grapefruit and orange rind/pith, but the overall flavor just generally doesn’t agree with me. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2016
Bottle from Beers and Cheers. Golden orange body with medium head. Nose is hoppy, floral, and of oranges. Taste is oranges, hops, pine. Nice and creamy texture. Slight amount of zestiness. Smooth finish. Enjoyable. cheap (5857) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2016
RBSG 2016 grand tasting. Pale, with IPA aromas. First is is what else? IPA. But hey, I see it’s supposed to be an APA. I’d say we are definately in the IPA territory fer sure. Ubiquitous IPA effects all round. Terribly on style for an IPA, if it was one. Long bitter chewing on green greapefruit rinds mixed with pine tar and spruce needles finish. Can’t really identify the blood orange in this. Cybercat (5833) - Georgia, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Growler. Pours slightly hazy golden-amber with a thick eggshell head. Aroma offers citrus, hoppy and malty notes. Flavor delivers plenty of hops and orange character, almost more IPA than PA, while fresh malt plays a supporting role. Mouthfeel features typical body and fizz. Good for taking the edge off a sweltering day - and we’re going to have plenty of those because climate change is REAL!

The acidity from the blood orange is fairly noticable and makes for an unusual mouthfeel. Fairly heavy malty mouth. Decent bitterness. Nice stuff. snoworsummer (5694) - 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. superspak (5587) - 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. burg326 (5482) - Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Poured an amber color with aromas of hops, citrus, light orange, and some bitterness. Flavors were light malt followed by some citrus and feint blood orange. A little disappointed here wanted more blood orange to come through. nearbeer (5415) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 24, 2017
12 oz. no bottling date evident. Foggy orange-amber pour with lots of bubble activity that sustains a quarter inch of foam. Nose of fresh orange, resin, garlic and a bit of caramel. Flavor starts of the same mix but quickly turns to more garlic, wood and some peppery resin that combine to nearly overpower all else. Mild toast and caramel notes manage to peek through at times. Light-medium body is soft with a mild astringency. Medium-high fizz and a long bitter finish.
