3.79/5  rDev +3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color capped by a two inch head of foam; quite a few strands and dots of lacing

Smell: Pithy orange bitterness on a base of toffee and toasted bread

Taste: The blood orange bitterness juts out immediately, with the toasted bread and toffee tones lingering underneath; not much changes from start to finish though I should add that the flavors are nicely balanced

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I am not a huge fan of the flavor profile but the beer is certainly decent

Thanks, mabermud, for the opportunity

3.8/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Pours a cloudy amber with two fingers of foamy white head.

Smell - citrus hops, blood orange, caramel sweetness, bready malts.

Taste - Blood orange and citrus hops are the predominate flavours followed by the caramel sweetness and bready malts.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes dry with a tanginess from the blood orange and slightly bitter from the citrus hops.

Overall - For adding blood orange to an APA, this brew has some excellent tanginess from the blood orange. For me, I wish the citrus hops were a little more pronounced but still a worthy APA with the addition of a unique ingredient.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

$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.
