I'm familiar with Blood Orange rinds/peels. I made a version of limoncello once but instead of Lemon rinds I used Grapefruit and Blood Orange rinds/peels. When I drink this beer I can distinctly taste the blood orange rind. The rind is bitter so it works harmoniously with the bitter hops. I'm not a big fan of bitters. This beer is quite bitter. Its deceptive though since Elysian says that the IBU rating is 45. It seems higher than that. I have a love hate relationship with this beer because I love the blood orange but the bitters is on my threshold level.

In my opinion this is a good beer though. I would advise everyone to drink this beer nice and cold. I'm not sure how it tastes warm but this is a refreshing beer that deserves to be cold. This beer has a good mouth feel to it too. It doesn't feel thin and watery. It's just about as perfect as you could get in terms of mouthfeel for this style of beer. I give a thumbs up to Elysian for doing something unique and original. I think I like it! :-)

Bottle copped at Total Wine and More. A decent, thirst-quenching brew. The blood orange isn't so apparent as one might think. Not very sessionable. Slightly cloying and overly sweet. Unbalanced yet refreshing flavor. Decent.

Tried this beer at the Tap House in Oswego, IL. It poured a cloudy yellow with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had orange peel. The scent was bitter with tropical fruit zeal. The Mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's decent and worth a shot.
