Hazy apricot color with a solid, fine white quilt. Smells like blood orange juice, a little gym sock, some clipped and dried grass with a touch of resin. Taste is like grain, some blood orange, standard orange pith and some bitterness. Maybe a touch of acidic vomit, but more the aftertaste than the actual taste. Medium on full bodied with low carb and a slightly wet finish. Meh, not very good.

Super fuzz has a cloudy butterscotch like color. Pours a modest head. Has a mild stale fruit-like smell that's not pleasant at all. Not specifically the orange smell one would expect. Although the taste definitely delivers a mild orange flavor which is cool but the orange peel flavor that lingers doesn't excite me much. Overall a decent beer. Nothing I would write home about.

Bland. Slight orange taste. Not worth it.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

It pours an awesome hazy orange hue with a nice foamy head. Visible lacing all around the glass. Smells kind of like my parents moldy basement where their cats piss in the corner. Definitely smells of ammonia and musk. Tastes kind of citrusy and very bitter on the finish. Feels awesome in my mouth, with a nice bubbly texture and reasonable carbonation. I would drink this on a hot day after mowing my lawn..wouldn't buy a case of this for myself though...perhaps for a summer party...

Cheers!

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Look: Pours with next to no head. Opaque Orange with lots of floaty sediment. Very active carbonation.

Smell: American hoppy citrus. Plenty of orange zest. Hint of pine.

Taste: Sweet fruity orange up front. Gets a bit zesty in the middle and finishes with a mild hoppy bitterness. Orange from start to finish.

Feel: Sweet to the point of stickiness. Medium body.

Overall: Right around average. This is one you don't need to seek out. Most memorable aspects of this beer are its missteps. If you like OJ from concentrate maybe give this a shot. Otherwise you can totally miss this one.

Cloudy brew with a very light flavor. I was hoping for a bit more because that is what I have come to expect from Elysian.

smell - orangey... nice

orange finish... a little like a cooler or something... but pleasing, still has enough - beer in it to be a beer...

it's a good summer drink, but I'm not smelling what they're cooking... nice mouthfeel, but not enough orange to be any different than other summer style ales.
