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.

Poured into a frosty pint glass...
A - Good looking...huge 3 finger head , hazy orange body and solid lacing.
S - Grapefruit, and Oranges. slight hop bitterness poking through.
T - slightly sour, Very little hop bitterness, then mellows out leaving lingering orange peel. pretty good. The orange peel is a little overbearing at times.
M- Well carbonated. medium thin mouthfeel.
Overall I see what they were trying to do with this beer but the whole thing could of been balanced a lot better. If some sweet caramel came through and mellowed the orange peel it would have been awesome.
