12-ounce bottle into New Belgium globe glass.
A half-inch clean, white head lays atop this glowing golden orange ale. Bubble rise quickly and steadily rom the depths of the translucent, cloudy liquid.
The smell is hoppy and floral. Tropical sweetness wafts from the surface of buttery-toast malted grains.
The sugary tartness of blood orange permeates the slightly bitter underlying herbal flavors. Pale malts have caramelized just a tiny bit; this rich syrupy fast helps balance the dominant citric pucker that loiters around the tongue long after swallowing. Sharp carbonation adds substantial refreshment to a foamy, medium body. Thin spotty lacing is left behind as the meniscus inches down the side of the glassware, gulp by gulp.
The look of Super Fuzz was by far the most impressive part. It glowed effervescently like an animated-movie treasure chest upon opening it for the first time. One cannot see through this beer; instead, the cloudy golden-medal light amber hues catch the light as it passes through this brew and reflect it in every direction. Beautiful.
As for the drinking experience, this one is refreshing and would go well with a porch- or dock sit.

$8.60 plus deposit for a 6o0 ml bottle at the 8th Street Liquor Store at New West station.
Pours a hazy gold with two fingers of head that doesn't stick around for long. Looking at this one, it could be a hefeweizen. Aroma is quite mild. Not much going on.
Taste is fairly bitter. There's not a whole lot of orange flavour, unless by orange flavour one means citrus rind. There's plenty of that.
Mouthfeel is okay.
Not bad, but nothing special.
