Too hoppy for me. Can’t really taste blood orange, just hops. If you want a much better blood orange beer go with SLO brewing company’s, Cali-Squeeze.

12oz can poured into 14oz teku. Poured a lightly cloudy yellow-orange color with 1/2 inch of white head that low-moderate retention and lacing.

Fruit and fruity hops had the lead in the aroma, with some citrus hops and light grain in the background.

Same story on the tongue, hop and fruit dominant, with just a bit of malt.

The body was typically medium, and had a semi-sweet finish.

Drinkability was fine, I enjoyed it, but not sure I would seek out another. Overall, a pleasant enough brew, probably worth trying if you see it.

Smells fresh, pours clean with minimal foam. Tons of lace. Bursting citrus smell, mouthfeel is good and syrupy and sticky, good carbonation, finishes bitterish. Balanced with sweet. Excellent.

12 oz can poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Cloudy golden-straw color, thick white head

Nose: lots of citrus, strong orange presence. Touch of bready malt.

Taste: orange up front followed by bready malt and a touch of herbal hop presence. Finishes dry with lingering mild bitterness.

Light body, dry.

4.39/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Look: A beautiful copper color with moderate carbonation. This beer has a nice head that disappears between 5-10 minutes.
Smell: This beer smells fruity and tropical. Good hops. Leaves some room to be desired in the strength of the flavors, but overall good.
Taste: Hoppy. Fruity with some underlying tropical fruit flavors. This beer is not overwhelming and is easy to drink at 6 percent alcohol content.
Feel: Light! This IPA is easy to drink and seems to fit a hot summer evening.
Overall: Well done! Always room for improvement, but this beer leaves me satisfied :)

Poured into a Stone tulip glass. Pours a hazy golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt, citrus hops, mixed orange family citrus which is lightly estery, light tropical fruit. Flavor is caramel malt, wheat, citrus hops with slight pine notes, orange, tangerine and mandarins, orange rind, guava; finishes with orange and grapefruit rind, citrus hops and lighter wheat malt. Light to medium body with peppery carbonation. An interesting combination of traditional caramel malt and wheat in the malt profile. Really fresh and realistic orange flavors with estery flavors, almost like an orange concentrate, but still fresh tasting. The wheat notes are more clear in the finish with bright orange flavors throughout. Refreshing and hoppy. An interesting and flavorful IPA.

Poured from bomber into tulip, nice 2 finger cream colored head, nice retention and so so lacing. Bright clear golden in the glass. Smells of sweet malt and citrus. Taste is somewhat blood orange in the front, with some citrus pith bitterness. It rounds out in the middle and more of the citrus shines thru. Finish is mild bitterness with a little tartness. Mouthfeel is pretty good on this. As it warms the citrus pith tames out. I always love a beer that displays the attributes of blood orange.

Trying the Track 7 Transfusion at Old Town Pizza in Roseville, CA. It poured a clear golden with thin white head is not leaving much of a lace. The scent is citrus leaning. The taste is blood orange. The Mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it's tasty.
