the perfect summer Pale Ale with a great hop presence , big mouthfeel and then the added bonus of the extra taste of blood orange which comes through in the nose and the finish. This is no novelty beer but instead a strong contender for one of the best PA's in the PNW. I hope they make it year round.

Appearance - cloude, hazy orange color with fluffy white head

Smell - smell of nectarine is all I can detect, a bit one- note, but it is pleasant

Taste - citrus, led by flavor of orange peel, flavors linger on the palate nicely in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, high carbonation, slightly sweet upfront, bitterness on the finish, flavors do linger nicely

Overall - a well done brew that would be nice for those hot summer days when you need some refreshment

Price point - $1.99/ 12 oz. single

This is a interesting one .
This smell is very distinct it smells like blood...with some orange and hops. Very odd
Now as I try it I am surprised that it tastes pretty good but is not great. It tastes like an over ripe orange tastes coppery and bloody. The burp from this is like burping iron.
But it isnt too bad for someone who likes this style. The beer looks cool with lots of lacing being left on the glass. Go try it by one and see how u like it I think only some will truely like this maybe the vampires lol.

I picked this up at Thirsty's in York -part of a mix-a-six enjoyed chilled in a willybecker.

The color is light amber/golden with light haze and thick white head of 2 plus fingers with average bead lace sticks in spots and retention is very good. The smell has a slight herbal scent with dominant citrus and light grain in the aroma with mild tinge of floral hops with gentle yeast ester. The feel is great with moderate bitterness and low astringency for the style with mild sweetness and slight creamy body with medium texture on the palate and moderate carbonation with a semi-dry finish.

The taste is very tea-like with slight orange rind and mild herbal aspect with a good malt flavor and yeast gives a tangy accent to the hops and subtle orange rind in the taste. The flavor of the hops adds a bitter profile befitting the style with slight spice accent and light grass which is pleasant and not overdone. The taste is mostly citrus from the hops with light tropical accent which fits the label of blood orange which is mildly sweet in the peripheral flavor yet the hops have enough umph and there is a mild acidity which is balanced by the pale malt flavors. Overall a very tasty beer, smooth and drinkable with a nice amount of complexity considering the moderate alcohol which is not evident in the taste. I like the freshness and balance -I could handle several of these -worth trying for sure

2 x on-tap, nickerson street saloon

shaker pints - hazy orange body with a healthy white foam. Expertly described as "better than blue moon, but similar". It actually did remind me a little of Oberon, less the whole what thing. Lots of flavor and pulpy sweetness from the blood orange, crackery malt, lemon peel. Quenched my thirst - even went back for another. Probably the first elysian beer I have drank in 6+ months.
