Pint on draft at 33 Elmwood in Westbrook, Maine.

Appearance: Hazy orange/straw with a short white head.

Aroma: Orange, citrus, hops, grass, some honey/wheat.

Taste: Oranges and grapefruit lead. Some malt backing. Little bit of spicy hops. Flavorful. Not too sweet.

Mouthfeel: Sessionable. An easy drinker at 6+ ABV.

Overall: I like a good blood orange ale, and this is a nice one. Good stuff. Nice balance of hops, orange and malt.

I've only had it out of the bottle. Bottle looks cool. Very well rounded beer. Can't go wrong, it's pretty mild.

Nice balance of hop and citrus on the nose as well as taste. Crisp tart finish. Have enjoyed this brew on tap and out of the bottle.

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.
