July 4th, 2015 - Elysian's labels are rolling up some hype for a beer that's rather tame. Enjoyed at a family Fourth of July celebration, this is a lighter brew with a light sniff of orange in the aroma and the flavor. It's simple, but refreshing, which makes it a fine match for a sultry evening watching fire explode in the sky.

From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter. This brew pours a medium dark and murky
peach tinged amber cloudy wheat color with chunky sediment and a decent head
of white foam that subsides to a frothy ring, thin light layer, and shows some
decent sudsy lacing. Nose of orange zest and subtle sweet malts with piney hop
notes. Flavors follow orange pith and zest around a touch of grapefruit (the yellow
variety) with some pine and herbal hop notes amid mildly sweet wheat and grain
notes. Decent mouth feel; medium body, medium light carbonation, and a bitter
orange pith and grapefruit zest and pith heavy finish.

I generally like Elysian brews, this one misses the mark but would
do the trick on a hot day.

Cheers

Nasty! Had a lot of floating debris in it. A strong hop flavor no blood orange at all. A hard swallow. Will never buy this again. I feel the same way about apa's as I do ipa's.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 05/09/18. Sampled on August 31, 2018.

Murky sediment filled orange-amber pour with a long lasting white foamy head. I like a little sediment but I probably could have used a fork in it.

I get the orange fruitiness on the nose riught away with a more subtle white bread and grainy character. Smells clean.

Medium, chewy body.

The orange sweetness plays up in the taste with a mild hop finish that does not linger long.

Upoured from a bottle. Unfiltered, and cloudy look. Light citrus smell. Taste is very orange, citrus taste, overpowering. Taste is lightly carbonated.

Hitting a soft spot in each and every beer drinker, the Elysian team brings a recipe for the all American pale ale to the table along with a bold orange infusion to take those citrusy hops where they've never gone before. This beer is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

With even an orange, amber, golden glow, Superfuzz (Blood Orange) pours hazy and with a rich and frothy cap. Citrus aromas abound with the scent of candied oranges, honey, light toast and nuttiness. Hints of herbal hops and a soft sprucy component leads into the initial sip of caramel, nuttiness and honey in a graham cracker kind of way.

As the sweetness pulls away from the focus, the hops garner flavor to bring the middle palate to within a slight hop forward balance. Hops bring its own set of complexities that remain citrusy with pink grapefruit, orange peel and a pep of lime before the blood orange additions overtake the session. Trailing into a firm bitterness, the late palate brings a taste of fresh cut grass, pine and fruit rinds to the beer's final frame.

Medium bodied and drying late in the taste, the beer favors a high rate of drinkability over even the copious amounts of added citrus for a session that's clean, crisp and highly refreshing. Shying away from the tendency to become citronella, the beer's finish is minty cool with ethanol while trailing into a medium length afterglow of candied citrus once more.

Nice hazy yellow-tan color with some nice fluffy head and lingering lacing. Smells of citrus and floral hops. Tastes of nice citrus rind hops - mainly orange, lemon and grapefruit - along with some milder floral hops, grain, malt and caramel. Smooth mild mouthfeel, nice bitter notes in the aftertaste, decent carbonation.
