Hazy apricot color with a solid, fine white quilt. Smells like blood orange juice, a little gym sock, some clipped and dried grass with a touch of resin. Taste is like grain, some blood orange, standard orange pith and some bitterness. Maybe a touch of acidic vomit, but more the aftertaste than the actual taste. Medium on full bodied with low carb and a slightly wet finish. Meh, not very good.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

It pours an awesome hazy orange hue with a nice foamy head. Visible lacing all around the glass. Smells kind of like my parents moldy basement where their cats piss in the corner. Definitely smells of ammonia and musk. Tastes kind of citrusy and very bitter on the finish. Feels awesome in my mouth, with a nice bubbly texture and reasonable carbonation. I would drink this on a hot day after mowing my lawn..wouldn't buy a case of this for myself though...perhaps for a summer party...

Cheers!

smell - orangey... nice

orange finish... a little like a cooler or something... but pleasing, still has enough - beer in it to be a beer...

it's a good summer drink, but I'm not smelling what they're cooking... nice mouthfeel, but not enough orange to be any different than other summer style ales.

Based on the relative oddness of this entry (especially when compared to my local Prism's rather refreshing Blood Orange beer) this is the first brew I've been moved to review in a while...

12 bottle into a standard pint, as I feel an APA should be served.

Appearance: This is one of the more murky Pale Ales I've ever seen and it says nothing about being unfiltered. It does keep an okay white head though and it's color is... On point orange. Overall, not a beauty. 2.50

Scent: You pick up a fair amount of citrus hops and a slight orange scent. But not necessarily blood orange.

Taste: I don't really taste much blood orange here, and the beer tastes more like an IPA than a Pale. If I am rating this on a fruit beer, it is probably as low as I can go. As an APA? Below average but not awful. 2.75

Mouth: It has an on point middle bodied Pale Ale mouthfeel with appropriate carbonation. No complaints.

If you are looking for a fruit beer (as you may initially think it is) it is awful. If you are looking for an APA, it is more like an APA/AIPA 'tweener. It's the bust Defensive End/Linebacker of Pale Ales.

Bottle is brilliant though.

Pours a hazy, golden color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of citrus, hint of hop, sweet malt, and a hint of pale malt. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus, hint of hop, hint of wheat, and slight pale malt. Overall, weak aroma, taste, and little complexity.
