3.7/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Enjoyed out of a brown 22 oz "bomber" and poured into a 16 oz nonic glass. No bottling date or "best by" anywhere that I can tell.

Appearance - Moderately aggressive pour yields maybe three-quarters finger head that dissipates to a film quickly, but leaves moderate lacing that lingers for some time. Lace is translucent white atop a body of milky orange that is hazy with hues of cantaloupe flesh and ruddy maize yellow.

Smell - A little disappointed here, as I was hoping to get lots of citrus. Citrus is there, but faint, and dances with some pine as well as more herbal notes, like basil or thyme. I really wish it was stronger, but if you work at it, you can make it out, which is even more frustrating, as you can tell how complex it is.

Taste - Improvement on the smell, as it's more aggressive. Citrus zest along with the first element of blood orange. Some grapefruit, and again elements of pine resin make an appearance. Finishes dry with some bittering hops.

Mouthfeel - Refreshing and crisp, with a juicy feel to it. Carbonation is on the light side of moderate with a medium-light body.

Overall and excellent take on a pale ale. This is the second Elysian I've had the privilege to try, courtesy of LetsPour, and both have been very good. I'm looking forward to consuming the rest of my order.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Trippy fro-man label. Love it. Makes me want to drink it when I get home. Pours a very hazy dark orange/amber color. Head has some richness to it. Sits at nearly an inch. Likes to lace a little bit. I like this unfiltered look. Fab.

Tamed herbal hops with a semi-sweet tangerine aroma. Somewhat grassy, too. Hard to get into the good stuff with this meager nose. Pale malts have a sweeter biscuity aroma. Hops keep it dry. Notes of white grapefruit and nectarine.

Hmmm... nice and dry. Blood orange is kept nice and quiet. Herbal and floral hops with notes of citrus. Not as much of the grapefruit, but a bit of lime and tangerine again. A lot of maltiness with semi-sweet pale malt grain beefing up the recipe bill. Biscuity and bready with honey notes, too. Not too shabby.

Nice body to this one. Spicy little finish with a short-lived burn in the throat. The carbonation works well. Round feel for a pale ale. I can get down with a beer that feels this good.

A barley malt beer brewed with oranges? Hell yes. Do I wish it came out a little better than this? Probably, but it's decent. Get one.

3.73/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Poured a "fuzzy" or hazy muted amber suggesting an unfiltered process. Given the giant orange fro on the label I expected an giant foamy orange head, but it was more subdued than that, just 2 fingers of fuzz that left delicate lacing around the glass and settled to a single layer of bubbles that blanket the top.

S: Sweet pale malts waft through first followed by orange oil and a very subtle yeast and a mild hoppiness that is present start to finish. I hoped for a stronger orange profile, something punchy and with that earthiness blood oranges offer.

T: Initial wash over the palette is sweet pale honey mixed with orange oils. Mid palette the taste changes to a bitter orange, yeasts and biscuits. The flavours morph from sweet to hoppy and emphasize the orange oils or orange bitters better while excluding the pithiness.

M: Carbonation is a well balanced fizz that lasts from front to back over the tongue. Medium bodied and just a hint dry on the back end that offer a refreshing finish. Tart and tangy it puts the salivation glands to work.

O: A sessionable drink that emphasizes orange oils and a tart and hoppy offering that's refreshing and easy to drink. I was hoping for that earthiness of a blood orange from the pour, smell and taste. However the orange was more muted and subtle, for my tastes.

Appearance has a hazy orange color supporting a thin but steady head leaving fair lace. Smell of sweet malt and citric floral hops. Taste is upfront grapefruit bitter that carries throughout leaving the malt as a sideshow. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.

3.54/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium orange hue with tons of haze and a finger of frothy, creamy light tan head. Nice!

Smell: kind of an earthy aroma with definite orange character but without the acidic bite you normally associate with citrus. An interesting overall effect; maybe not an everyday thing, but I like the novelty here.

Taste: earthy and fruity right up front, developing more of an orange flavor through the middle. The orange isn't really sweet or candylike in any way, as some fruit beers are. Finish is quite bitter, though whether from hops or orange pith it is hard to say. Again, this beer is an interesting experiment, but not one I'd want to quaff everyday.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a pretty satisfying creaminess.

Overall: this beer is not on the top of my list, although objectively it's not bad. It may appeal to a pretty narrow audience, however.

This poured out as a hazy copper color with a foamy white head on top. The retention and lacing on this one were pretty good. The smell of the beer has a pleasant orange aroma that isn't over the top but subtle enough to pick up on it as well as the hops and grains too. The taste of the beer is a little bit more on the muted side, decent hop and citrus flavor with a pretty good malt backbone. The mouthfeel is easy going, lighter bodied, refreshing and gently carbonated. Overall it's a pretty good beer, definitely right for the warmer months.

Wow, man, dig that I scored a limited release beer! I usually steer clear of chasing after such things, but we are in the midst of the most righteous return of the super groovy late-'60's/early-'70's and I totally caught onto the hip vibe of the label when I saw it in the cooler at HungernThirst. All right, here goes, man. What is black and white and full of fuzz? A police car, baby! Man, they made noises about me possibly taking over the yearbook next year until I started rapping about it being the most far out, psychedelic edition in the school's 75-year history. Then they got that nervous look that they always get when I suggest things and backed off. Ya dig, man? I was going to make like Timothy Leary and make sure that each student got a communion wafer on their tongue at the beginning of each class meeting, but no more than a quarter-tab as they might have other things to do during the day. I am tuned in like Roger Sterling and I see no reason that others shouldn't see the light.

From the groovy bottle, man: "Blood Orange Pale"; "Ale brewed with Blood Orange".

My pour netted me a solid finger of far out orangish-yellow head with decent retention, man. I was mesmerized watching it fall, leaving that groovy lacing in its wake. Color was a hazy shade of winter, I mean a hazy orange. Nose totally sent me, man, with its beautiful scent of freshly-squeezed oranges. Mouthfeel was a little on the thin side, but that was not what was making the scene, dig? Instead, it was that freaky taste of oranges commingling with the citrusy hops that was like an electric kool-aid acid test in the mouth, man! It was totally happening and very reminiscent of Shiner's Ruby Red that this cool cat turned me onto last Saturday in Philly, man. I would fully have both of them back-to-back or maybe side-by-side, kind of like those swingin' kitties that I hooked up with after a fest. Back to the beer, right, man? The finish was dry, but citrus dry, not hoppy dry, if you can dig that action. Man, I would score some of this while the Elysian Man is still holding cause he might run dry at any time and then you'll be jonesin' in a big way, man.

Picked up one of the last two six-packs of these in Totowa earlier this week - partially because of the design but also because this was a Blood Orange Pale and I wanted to see if this was different from other Pale Ales that I've enjoyed in the past. Although the citrus wasn't that present here, this was a "fun" beer and went down so easily, without feeling watered down or weak. The hops weren't an overkill here but the balance and body were strong enough that this easily felt and tasted correct, stylistically.

Nice pour to this, with a very opaque golden hue, fluffy white head that wasn't thick but certainly lasted a long while, and good lacing that refused to fully give way, as much of it stuck to the sides of my pint glass until the very end. Not a lot of blood orange in the nose, as pine, citrus rind, and fresh hops dominated the nose. Those were joined by the blood orange and tangerine in the mouthfeel with a soapy consistency and ever so slight burning in the back. The carbonation was spot-on as it was strong enough to be felt but not enough to fully scrub away the flavors after each sip, and the citrus of the blood orange lingered for quite a while after I swallowed each sip.

Sure, this was beer but never did I taste or feel the alcohol kick in. Although this wasn't marketed or released as Summer seasonal, this would be perfect on a not-too-hot day where a Lawnmower beer simply wouldn't suffice. While not as oily, hoppy, or sharp as other Pale Ales, this was really enjoyable to drink and a good take on the style. Worth a shot if you can find it before this limited release is gone from store shelves. I'm glad I gave it a go and will put it into the late Spring/Summer rotation that I currently have going!

12 oz.

Pours a hazy orange-gold, sugar white head retains as a film.

Smells of honey, light piney hops, and orange juice.

Tastes of potent piney hops, some honey sweetness, and citrus rind bitterness.

Full body with stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A pretty hoppy ale, kind of expected more orange in the flavor. Pretty good beer though, worth trying.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

Grapefruit, lightly sweet orange/citrus notes primarily. Medium body, fizzy, foamy carbonation.
A well done pale ale, though I am unable to distinguish what characteristics the blood orange adds.

Poured from a 12oz standard pressure-cap bottle into a conic pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- One-finger cream colored head with a decent retention. Fairly thick and creamy head with some thick lacing. Pale orange body with little clarity. Hazy and some particulate. Actually looks pretty appealing, especially that lacing.

S- Typical pale ale. Pale hop smell with a distinct citrusy bitterness. The orange isn't overwhelming and is in fact, quite subtle.

T- Grapefruit bitterness at first, but then a smooth, slightly bitter but relatively clean finish.

M- Full bodied on the tongue but finishes thin and wet with a bitter linger.

O- Nice pale ale with a twist. Slightly above average in my opinion, but not by a great deal.

Brewed once so I suppose it's almost 2 months old. Into a stein.
A - A very dirty bright orange yellow, almost as hazy as a Hefe, with a solid 1/2 inch of head fed by an impressive level of carbonation/
S - Smells like a regular pale ale to me with pale malts, mild bit of hops, and a touch of orange rind. Doesn't really scream blood orange.
T - Ah there it is the blood orange juice kicks in first sip making it have a very bitter edge similar to an IPA. Sweeter malts then play with some hops but in the end the finish is again sweet with very little bitter. It is however very refreshing.
M - As stated with a light to medium body, crisp carbonation, and session able ABV this beer is again a refreshing summer ale.

Overall quite a tasty fruit based pale ale. I could easily see crushing a six pack (which is very affordable mixed for 10 bucks) unfortunately they are a one time thing so I will enjoy the rest of this single.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

AP: Not much of a head on this one as it quickly dissipates down to just a dusting on the surface with some lacing on the side when the glass is titled.
AR: Orange, hay/grass, biscuit, a bit of clover honey. Not a myriad of aromas, but what's there smells pretty good.
T: Blood oranges is the dominant taste, by far. There's a bit of grapefruit in there also, mostly on the back end. Malts are cereal and biscuit with a touch of caramel. If you fancy blood oranges then you'd love this.
M: Moderate carbonation, fairly crisp for the most part with a bit of juiciness on the finish.
OV: Decent, and I can see people enjoying this as a Summer beer, but just not my cup of tea to warrant a higher rating. There are other Summer beers I'd prefer to down a 6pk of.

Poured from a 355ml bottle. Pours a hazy orangey yellow colour. The nose is typical West Coast APA: pine, citrus grapefruit. On the palate the blood orange really shines through and complements the citrusy hop notes. There are some really nice fruit flavours here, with just a touch of sweetness. The body has a little helft to it. A very solid beer.

On tap at the Village Tavern in Geneseo, NY.

Pours a golden, hazy orange. Foamy one inch head, with good lacing down the glass.

Aromas include oranges, pineapple, grapefruit, and pine sap.

The tastes is the same. The hop flavors are very orange-forward, due to the addition of blood oranges to this- without me knowing this, I would have just thought the beer was very fruity from the various hop varietals that can give off orange flavors. There's also some grapefruit and pineapple, with a small amount piney bitterness.

Light to medium bodied, low carbonation, crisp mouthfeel.

An excellent, drinkable hoppy APA, one I could easily put a few back of.

the perfect summer Pale Ale with a great hop presence , big mouthfeel and then the added bonus of the extra taste of blood orange which comes through in the nose and the finish. This is no novelty beer but instead a strong contender for one of the best PA's in the PNW. I hope they make it year round.

This is a interesting one .
This smell is very distinct it smells like blood...with some orange and hops. Very odd
Now as I try it I am surprised that it tastes pretty good but is not great. It tastes like an over ripe orange tastes coppery and bloody. The burp from this is like burping iron.
But it isnt too bad for someone who likes this style. The beer looks cool with lots of lacing being left on the glass. Go try it by one and see how u like it I think only some will truely like this maybe the vampires lol.

I picked this up at Thirsty's in York -part of a mix-a-six enjoyed chilled in a willybecker.

The color is light amber/golden with light haze and thick white head of 2 plus fingers with average bead lace sticks in spots and retention is very good. The smell has a slight herbal scent with dominant citrus and light grain in the aroma with mild tinge of floral hops with gentle yeast ester. The feel is great with moderate bitterness and low astringency for the style with mild sweetness and slight creamy body with medium texture on the palate and moderate carbonation with a semi-dry finish.

The taste is very tea-like with slight orange rind and mild herbal aspect with a good malt flavor and yeast gives a tangy accent to the hops and subtle orange rind in the taste. The flavor of the hops adds a bitter profile befitting the style with slight spice accent and light grass which is pleasant and not overdone. The taste is mostly citrus from the hops with light tropical accent which fits the label of blood orange which is mildly sweet in the peripheral flavor yet the hops have enough umph and there is a mild acidity which is balanced by the pale malt flavors. Overall a very tasty beer, smooth and drinkable with a nice amount of complexity considering the moderate alcohol which is not evident in the taste. I like the freshness and balance -I could handle several of these -worth trying for sure

2 x on-tap, nickerson street saloon

shaker pints - hazy orange body with a healthy white foam. Expertly described as "better than blue moon, but similar". It actually did remind me a little of Oberon, less the whole what thing. Lots of flavor and pulpy sweetness from the blood orange, crackery malt, lemon peel. Quenched my thirst - even went back for another. Probably the first elysian beer I have drank in 6+ months.

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.

12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip.

A: Pours a hazy...should I say it? Okay. Pours a hazy orange color. The head is a one finger offwhite shade that's very bubbly in its texture. Some sheeted lacing is left behind as well.

S: Pleasant tones of mango, pine, Simcoe cattiness, and crackery malt abound. I also pick up a hint of blood orange, as well - especially when it opens up - but given the advertising of blood oranges, I'd expect it to smell less like a typical Simcoe-hopped pale ale. To be fair, though, blood orange is a VERY common note in pale ales...

T: It starts off with touches of pine and mango. After the midpoint is where the advertised blood oranges comes through, creating a juicy yet bitter finish. It's not superbly interesting, all told, however it does live up to its billing.

M: Not as clean as I'd like it to be. Also a bit on the heavy side in terms of texture. Pleasantly bitter and carbonated, though.

O: The use of blood oranges here isn't enough to make this stand out from the scores of pale ales on the market. I'd reckon its worth a try, just don't expect to be blown away.

Bottle > Winter Lager Glass

A- Pours clouded yellow, faint head, and minimal lacing.
S - Tart orange and citrus juice, wheat, some clove, and a touch of yeast.
T - Nice tart orange flavor up front, that is mellowed out by a some hop bitterness and wheat flavor. There is also a mild champagne flavor/feel to this beer, and im not sure what to think of it, but overall think blood orange Hop Sun, but toned down.
M - Pretty clean mouthfeel, a little wheat bitterness clings to your mouth, definitely fizzy as well.
O - This isnt surprisingly good, but it is decent, and has a unique twist of flavor to it. Good for summer months? Sure is, but this is more of a pale wheat or wit than anything.
