On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy brass hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a soft orange aroma accompanied by caramel and a grassy hop.

The taste consisted of a light orange juiciness with a moderate caramel and citrusy hop.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style with a dry finish.

Overall a pretty good orange infused ale.

poured from a 12 oz to a tulip glass

A- pours a hazy blood orange color with a 1 finger head with a sexy lacing that slimes around the glass

S- a musty, grass hope note up front, then tangerine, orange, blood oranges, hints of pineapple, some spicy notes, and dull wet cardboard on the finish

T- Nice fruity hop presence on the tongue, oranges, tangerines, pineapple, pears, finishes slighty bitter with a bit more of that musty cardboard sorta taste

M- Light to medium in body, decent carbonation, has a nice rounded body to it, drinks nice a smooth, and slighty dry

O- Nice pale ale, lots of nice flavors, some off tannin flavors are found here and there which kinda lets ya down a bit, but all in all its a good tasty beer.

This is a nice beer. The blood orange seems to compete against the pale ale character (and wins). It's an interesting mix. I can get the peel of the orange and the spice character from hops. Somewhat subdues it, and somewhat clogs it up a bit. A nice enough beer to try.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Great looking apperance. Opaque and orange colored, with a super creamy white head that grows 4 fingers, and settles with a create creamy whipped appearance. This looks like a popsicle, specifically a creamsicle in a glass. Real neat!

A real nice fruit orange bouquet on the nose, mixing with a good hop presence somewhere between grass and citrus. Hard to tell if this citrus is coming from the oranges, the hops, or both, either way it's a nice melding of flavors together.

First sip has a mild hop bitterness, with a nice juicy palate and sweetness. Oranges all over, with a moderate light malt backbone sticking out to balance nicely. Quite refreshing and nearly crisp. Good quenching palate that makes for a good thirsty pleasant feeling. Moderate carbonation, clean finish of orange and pleasant hop bitterness with some sweetness taking some presence after some time.

Overall a real fun delicious pale ale. What a great summer beer this is, I'd like to have this again on a hot day.
