We took some fresh Sanguinello Blood oranges, juiced íem, concentrated that juice (without heat) and threw it into a wheatier version of our New Dogtown Pale Ale. The end result? A refreshingly hopped pale-ish ale with a huge citrus burst!

Very fruity, but balanced. Sweet juiciness comes through. Thin fading head. Flavor is very tropical but I thought it was from hops not juice. Nice flavors. Nose is very tropical also. Very little bitterness.

craftbeersweden (667) - SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2017
Almost clear, dark yellow beer with a three finger high, white, fluffy head.

Nose: Lemon, blood orange, citrus, malt, grapefruit and passion fruit.
Taste: Fresh squeezed orange juice, lemon, caramel malt, blood orange and grapefruit.
Mouth: Medium body and carbonation. A nice bitter mouthfeel. Smooth and juicy.

This is a Limited Release from Lagunitas but I shure want it to come back! This is really good and refreshing. The blood orange juice and the wheat version of New Dogtown Pale Ale works great together!

Pours gold with a coarse white head, sticky lace. Fresh hop aroma, citrus, mild funk. Mouthfeel is a tad slick, refreshing though. Outstanding flavor, lovely medley of hops and oranges, not too acidic though, pleasant sweetness prevails. Slight zest, lightly toasted cereal. Super drinkable for this abv.

hawthorne00 (3906) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2017
Bottle, 7.7% ABV. Clear gold with a white head. Aroma of sweet hay, lots of oranges. Itís more - indeed too - obvious that itís actual oranges when you take a swig. Moderately sweet, medium bodied, bitterness on the low side of medium. The interplay between the hops and blood oranges is really very nice, particularly at the finish. Itís just so careless with the alcohol - costs it .2 or .3 for me.

Mindwarp (276) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2017
Pours a light gold with a thick white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma is of citrus and malt. taste is a sweet citrus malty watery bitterness. Overall all an easy beer to drink but not one of theyíre best.

32 oz crowler- Pours rusty golden with a medium white head with decent retention. Aroma is fruity, light malt, citrus, berries. The taste is fruity, berries, mango, tropical fruits, citrus, medium light bitterness. Easy drinking, was hoping for more of a hop punch, simple thirst quencher if it werenít for the high abv, which i didnít even realize, doesnít taste like almost 8%.

and for the record 5th rating of the day, we have another Lagunitas, easily my favorite and most often rated brewery and this is one of my favorite of their offerings. It pours a lovely slightly amber gold color with a fruity essence oozing out the smellholes. The taste is a sweet, sour blood orange blast with a nice hop underpinning that is compulsively drinkable yet flavorful and complex. This is a favorite of mine and I wish it was year round cause I would drink it all the time. Good for chilling out with some Danganronpa after preparing a feast for others.

Bottle. Very smooth and fruity. Taste of citrus, pine and white bread. Very drinkable as fresh.

3.5
Darwenus (1113) - Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2017
My bottle of this was probably a little too old to be ideal, but I still thought it tasted good. It poured bright orange with average head. The aroma is sweet, tangy blood oranges up front, but a sweet wheat malt is still there in the bakcground. The flavor is mostly about the sweet citrus. Itís very sweet, but not bad at all. The finish is mild and malty, and if the hop character isnít as bright as it might have been, itís probably because I let this bottle set a little too long. Iíd like to have this again fresh.
