Pours cloudy orange, not much of a head that did not last long.

The aroma is ver muted. Faint blood orange, a biscuity malt, vague hops.

The flavor is a mix of citrus bitter, slight sourness, and not much else. The blood orange, which I enjoy, is not as apparent as I would like. Lacks the brightness and the floral notes of blood orange.

The beer leaves an odd,coating feel on the tongue and there is a slight burning sensation. The beer feels thick and slick.

Overall, did not enjoy this beer. Based on some of the other reviews, I am wondering about consistency. What I drank seems completely different vs. more favorable reviews.

L: orange and biscuit aromas rising from the glass evoke an orange pop-tart

S: pours murky orange amber permeated with streams of rapidly rising bubbles under a lacy 1" ivory foam collar with moderate retention

T: Lightly sweet orange biscuit seasoned with citrus and faint resin leads the flavor. An assertive bitterness emerges mid-palate and dries the beer slightly> Finishes with lingering bitter

F: very creamy with a medium to medium light body and medium high carbonation

O: just enough red orange results in a well balanced, easy to drink beer

Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale | Elysian Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the head's two fingers thick, with lateral lacing and a hazed slightly orangish medium-light amber body.

Smells like an actual appropriate amount of hops to be a legit pale ale & not a mislabeled IPA. Right on the money with that IMO. Also getting a faint whiff of the orange. The two really do compliment one another quite well.

I taste an ever-so-slight sweetness brought about by the sourdough bread malts and the incorporation of the blood orange. Like I've stated in the smell discipline of the review, this just HAS the right amount of hoppiness. Smooth,clean finish.

Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

Overall, I'll choose to give Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale | Elysian Brewing Company a rating of a 4.5

I love everything orange and have been constantly seeking the perfect orange IPA. Unfortunately nobody gets it quite right. This is a good attempt, but leaves something to be desired from both the IPA side and the orange side. A refreshing easy drinker, but it doesn't stand out form the pack.

Poured out a pale orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of orange peel and caramel maltiness. The blood orange taste was very tame. I expected more based on the name. It really just tasted like a citrusy pale ale.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pilsner glass.
Look: dark orange, murky, thin white head.
Smell: strong presence of orange.
Taste: The blood orange stands out. Mixture of bitter and sour.
Feel: a little thick, might be due to the abv.
Overall: an orange lovers beer. Tastes as advertised
