Poured a cloudy ice tea color in a Stone Imperial Pint glass with a 1 F head. Lacing.

Very strong spicy orange rind aroma which lightens a bit with warming.

Orange rind citrus taste blends well with an excellent hoppy, spicy, tart finish.

I was surprised: I thought the beer would be lackluster. Lots of sharp character
Best 40-45°.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange amber with lots of tiny white particles suspended. Thin white head has good retention. Mild citrusy aroma. Taste is a combo of caramel malt, piney hops and a touch of blood orange tart. Good balance between the three. Semi soft medium feel. Would drink again.

Pours a hazed straw with 2+ fingers of rocky cream colored head. Stellar lacing & pretty good head retention & this quite clears up

S: Tangerine notes, not much else

T: Follows the nose, a little pomello as well, along with dryness, some breadyness up front. More breadyness. orange, & a litttle more dryness, a little grapefruit pith as well. Finishes with tangerine, dryness, & some juiceyness

MF: Medium body, fairly restrained carbonation & good balance

Drinks easy, a pretty nice take on the style

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy and cloudy burnt golden with some floaties/sediment; big fluffy white head that falls leaving great thick retention and sticky lacing. The aromas are citrus forward along with some fresh bread and crackers. The blood orange is there and doesn't come off as artificial. Malts are there. The flavors basically follow the nose. Lots of blood orange juice along with some pine. Hints of grapefruit in the mix. Moderate bitterness with a solid malt backbone. There's a sweetness to this one, but it's nothing cloying or anything to worry about. Finishes juicy. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is nice. It's medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's extremely fluffy and creamy. Smooth and easy to drink.

This is a nice blood orange pale ale. It comes off as natural. It's refreshing and fitting for the warmer weather. Not bad at all. It's probably even better than my "numerical score" might indicate. I like it.

Orangish in color. Taste sweet like a blood orange and hoppy to go along with it. Went down really really smooth not a bad beer at all. Just didnt hit the spot
