$11.49 USD plus tax per 4-pack of 12 fl oz pull-tab cans (purchased in Tulsa, Oklahoma):

The blood orange comes through but isn't as distinctive as I'd have imagined, tending a bit too much towards a more generic citrusy flavour profile than a recognizably blood orange flavour per se.

Crisp and refreshing with some fragrant oily flavours hitting big on notes of orange peel and bitter (blood) orange. Pale malts help balance it. Hop flavours are citrusy and floral, backing the actual blood orange fruit tidily.

Drinkable and enjoyable, though I don't know that it's any better than comparable blood orange IPAs sold in the more consumer-friendly 6x12 fl oz format. Easily one of the better Oklahoma brewed IPAs I've tried, though I don't know that it beats Everything Rhymes With Orange.

solid yellow gold hazed out body pours a very excited fluffy lightly foamy/soapy cream white head with low retention that settles into a soapy bubble halo, leaving patches of sudsy foam lacing as it goes

smell is dank thick and pungent lush citrus hop, leaning in towards mango and orange, bready and sweet malt, slight grapefruit and grass hop

taste is a lush yet bittersweet citrus that hangs around in the center point of a triangle of mango, grapefruit, and orange. add two more "points" to that triangle: roasted/near-burnt caramel, and cut grass hop. yep. dead center surrounded by 5 points...I see you, Roughtail.

feel is moderate carbonation, with a medium and fluffy yet near-watery body, and a crisp bittersweet dry finish that lingers in the mouth with pungently bittersweet grapefruit/orange (blood orange?? probably)

this was several things at the same time. lush and full yet dry and watery. apparently blood orange hangs out in an area between grapefruit and orange and i never noticed and then theres like mango up in here for some reason. then theres fresh cut grass to remind you actual hops were in fact used. it's basically a party, one that seems near-chaotic, yet is undeniably "controlled" in the very next breath. I also cannot overstate the night/day feature here that displays so violently the word "bittersweet" - it is orange sweet, then grapefruit bitter with a side of dirt mere seconds later. normally, bittersweet causes me to pause and note the subtle distinctions within that experience..here, you get more of a swinging pendulum. and in a way, that is totally awesome.
second can in a row though?? it's a lot. consider interchanging, or a one timer to dip a toe. intriguing brew hands down though. would definitely 10/10 do again.

Pours an effervescent & very hazed amber with a thumb+ of cream colored head, Great lacing & good head retention

S: Oranges, breadyness & mango, grassy hops as well once warm

T: Sweet orange, breadyness, green melon, plus peach & guava up front. Sweet orange, a little bitter orange & guava as this warms. Finishes powdery dry with sweet orange, green melon & a little passion fruit

MF: Medium body, creamy carbonation, nice balance

Well done as usual when it comes to the hoppy stuff from these guys

Well, this is not a suprise. The 2020 brew gives off an aggressive, confident hop-forward scent. And, yes, that is blood orange in the flavor. Gotta say, Hail Jucifer is a consistently good brew for Roughtail.

16oz can. Poured out a cloudy, golden orange color with a large, off-white head of foam. It smelled of orange, pineapple and guava. So much tropical juiciness with toasted caramel and sharp bitterness.
