Pours hazy orange color perfect, The smell is faintly of orange, citrus no real hop bitterness. The taste is amazing bright citrus, followed by a sour bite on the tongue. Sticks with you and then you get the bitterness on the back end. Mouthfeel is smooth could easily drink the whole growler in 1 sitting... I probably shouldn't but I could.

Overall, a solid and balanced IPA. I only got a hint of the citrus, but I would have liked it if that flavor was more present. .

I am not a huge IPA guy but I LOVE this beer!!!!!

Great aroma and the blood orange flavor is just so nice! The batches have varied slightly as they have tweaked the blood orange addition to the brew but all have been awesome.

12oz can, undated, assumed to be fresh, poured into a 14oz snifter glass.

The beer pours a hazy and turbid orange color, amber and copper hues with a foamy white head, about a finger tall that has good retention and yields lots of soapy lace. The aroma is nice, tangy blood orange juice, bitter citrus peel, light tropical fruits, a bit of pine and spice with some sweeter yeast and pale grain. The flavors are good, bitter citrus rind, light grapefruit juice and blood orange juice, some sweeter tropical fruit, hop spice, resinous pine and strong stale grain. The mouthfeel is good, coating, crisp medium body that has nice lively carbonation and a dry finish.

Verdict: A good IPA from Burnt Hickory and a fairly well done expression of blood orange. Lightly bitter, lightly juicy, nice almost sour tang to the citrus with some pleasant sweeter new england yeast and grain character. Easy going, good beer.

Great beer for the style. Lacking slightly in the blood orange, but overall a seriously tasty ipa.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a hazy golden yellow with a large white head. The aroma is fresh citrus. The taste is a mice mix of hops and oranges.
