Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazed golden brown pour with 1.5 fingers of fluffy white head. Nice ring of lacing.

S: Blood orange and citrus. Grainy malts but mostly citrus hops.

T/F: Follows the nose. Light toasted grain backbone. Citrus/grapefruit hops and blood orange juice. Modest bitterness... well balanced and drinkable. Relatively light bodied.

O: A decent blood orange pale. Solid flavor... nothing spectacular but a very drinkable beer.

I love this!!! effervescent. “Streaming, gleaming, flaxen, waxen.” Great foamy head. Nice flavorful but not too intense. Still delicious. Blood orange peel purée?

Nice, light summer beer. I like beers a bit hoppier, so I'd suggest dry hopping with amaillo or citra to pick up the flavor a bit. This would be an excellent choice for those who want something light. I realize that pale ales should not have a hop taste, but this pale ale is good, but lacking something to make it special.

Clear straw color that has a white head that disipates quickly. Aroma is a mild citrus. Taste is also a moderate citrus that is somewhat thirst quenching.

Pours a two finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Musty citrus nose and flavor is hints of blood orange with citrus hops. Lingering hoppy aftertaste. $2.35 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.
