This beer is actually a 6.4% abv not 5.4% - Just sayin. Overall this is a great pale ale. It has very little aroma. I have a bad sense of smell as it is but I am confident that this beer has very little late hop additions or dry hopping in their process. Regardless, this is a great pale ale. It has a nice middle hop bitterness. The Elysian website says they use Cascade and Northern brewer for bittering and Cita + Amarillo for finishing - which makes for a great citrusy west pale ale. There is some type of orange flavoring added to this brew because on the finish there is a very noticeable orange tang. It is not overbearing - just noticeable which is the way it should be. I find this beer gets better as it warms a little. I would buy this again for sure. Cheers

Not a bad beer, I bought it mostly due to the label to be honest. I haven't had a blood orange beer WOW me, and this one didn't either. However it was good and drinkable and certainly not bad, just more along the lines of average.

This is an easy sipping ale. Sort of not far off a Radler in terms of mouthfeel and fruit profile. Muted hops. Very decent but nothing to write home about.

Too light. This beer suffers in comparison to Elysians own Space Dust, a fine IPA, and what I just had my go to IPA Deschuttes Fresh Squeezed IPA. I swear: I don't work for Deschuttes, never been to the brewery. and having lived in Seattle I would want to love a Seattle based craft beer. This stuff to my taste: too much coriander. Not enough piney hops. I am not tasting the blood orange that much either. This stuff tastes a lot like Avery's White Rascal. If you like White Rascal you will like this. Nothing particularly distinctive and I would not turn this down. It is okay, but I would never buy it.

Pretty, deep yellow orange. Hazy - unfiltered.

Smell of apricots. Reminiscent of Dogfish Head 90 minute. I suppose there's some orange, too, but that's not the dominant taste.

Taste is /bitter/. Peach pits and hops. Orange rind.

Feel is moderate, slightly rich.

Good integrity. Al this comes together nicely.

Clear amber colored head with just a wisp of white head, unremarkable.

Smells of oranges and malt. Fainter scents of wood and grass.

Starts off Mild pale ale with an orange after taste. Grassy and woody. Slightly sweet. Very slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall OK, but Boring.

I really enjoyed this. I'm surprised this isn't getting stronger reviews.

Sure in the general citrus "PA" arena I'd prefer Sculpin (and just bought both). And maybe the folks looking for intense hoppy bitterness might not get the same kick as an IPA. However it's an APA and it's really solid and honestly it's pretty original. Very drinkable and balanced. It's clearly presents citrus (it i not a creamscicle - ignore that review unless your creamsicles have pine needles in them) It's nice and floral/citrus/grapefruity in terms of aroma and taste. I'll buy this again.
