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.

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.

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.

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 .

The appearance was a hazy orange color with a one and half finger white foamy head that dies to a lumpy looking film coating the top of the beer, decent amount of light foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass. The smell had some orange with light spice combined and amplifying a nice refreshing aspect. The taste was mainly sweet through the orange and spice. Its kinda like drinking orange juice to an extent. Sticky sweet orange aftertaste leading into a nice crisp refreshing dry finish. M: light to medium, sessionable - yes, ABV feels very appropriate for what is told, carbonation is good for the style and for me as theres the appropriate amount for an American Pale Ale lending a nice sweet coating around the mouth and tongue. Overall, I say this is a pretty good APA well worthy of coming back to and well worthy of having it with its respected food.

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.

Dark amber, reflects the blood orange. Soft white head and lace rings. Flavour has lots of citrus like biting an orange. Some hoppiness.
