3.6/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass. No freshness date but this is a brand new beer. The artwork, I kinda think is hilarious.

Appearance: No surprise here but pours a hazy pale orange color. Thin 1/4" white head that had very lettle retention. Wet lacing here and there but nothing of a significant amount.

Aroma: Fruity, orange, tangerine, tropical mango aroma. Piney, resinous hops are layered nicely underneath the initial fruitiness. Some yeasty an faint pilsner-esque malt notes but the hops are the star of the show.

Taste: I'm a little conflicted here. I feel like I'm fond of this brew but it doesn't really make me think APA. There's plenty of hops and bitterness present but instead of a malty backbone, it's the blood orange that comes through at the mid-way point. I can kinda dig it. There is a pale pilsner malt that is barely detectable but I can pick it out. The tropical notes and light hoppy are the first flavor, the blood orange becomes prevalent in the end and finish with a very light pale malt. Pleasant drink really.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium. Very wet and juicy mouthfeel I guess from all the fruity flavors. Finish, has a nice bitterness. It does all this without being too sweet. I dig all the flavors and it's quite a drinkable summer brew.

Overall, "blood orange" seems to be the trend right now as I feel like there have been a handful of beers coming out hyping the ingredient. That being said, this has been one of the more enjoyable ones to me. Some people will probably be put off by the fruitiness, I like the direction they went here. Blood orange is sibtle but there's other flavors here to keep you interested.
