Notes/Commercial Description:
A delightful mid summer day's dream comes to life with our Blood Orange Pale Ale. We blend the finest quality Blood Oranges with our ever popular original Pale Ale recipe to produce this remarkably refreshing hand crafted beer. The secret to its splendor is just the right combination of hand chosen American hops to accentuate the natural bitterness and citrus flavors of the the Blood Orange. You'll be pleased with how amazingly the malt, hops, and blood orange meld together to create a sensation in a beer like a sunrise on a clear summer morning! We've never brewed anything quite like our Blood Orange Pale and we're happy to do so to keep you revitalized throughout the summer months.

Love the glowing orange colour! The orange bouquet hits your nose but doesn't overpower: It stays for a moment or two then goes on about its business down your throat. Very drinkable, crisp, a little wine-y and just a tad on the dry side; Somewhat light, not heavy at all (call it medium-light), nice balance of citrus fruit (Orange obviously, {duh!}) , flower and herbs from the hops. Head doesn't stick around long, but when it does, it makes the Blood Orange Pale Ale that much more desirable. A very good beer for the summer to help cool you off: Actually, just a good beer for any season.. Makes you want to have two or three in a row.

Pretty freaking awful. Take a crap pale ale and mix it with "natural flavors" (aka more crap) and this is what you're left with. Tastes like the medicine you had as a child for a sore throat and leaves you feeling worse. Bought a six pack of it earlier, drank half of a bottle and tossed the rest. It's that bad. Steer clear. In fact, run away -- it's awful.
