12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, cloudy, copper color, speckled with yellow and orange highlights and a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very hoppy up front, followed by some wheat and a touch of citrus, but a lot less than I was expecting from the name of the beer. The predominate aroma, overpowering really, is floral, piney, hops.

Taste: Disappointing actually. There’s hardly any malt flavor at all, nor is there any blood orange citrus flavor. All I get is hops, bitter, piney, hops, which is a shame. No balance.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and pretty smooth as there is very little carbonation. With an ABV of 7.0%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: I’m very disappointed in this beer. I was really looking forward to tasting some citrus flavors from the blood orange and possibly some spice, but unfortunately, all I get/taste is hops. Hop heads should really like this beer, but alas, I do not. After looking this beer up on Beer Advocate I see that it is an IPA, but makes sense for all the hops that the beer has. Had I known it was an IPA, meaning had that been on the label, I would not have gotten it.
