12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

AP: Not much of a head on this one as it quickly dissipates down to just a dusting on the surface with some lacing on the side when the glass is titled.
AR: Orange, hay/grass, biscuit, a bit of clover honey. Not a myriad of aromas, but what's there smells pretty good.
T: Blood oranges is the dominant taste, by far. There's a bit of grapefruit in there also, mostly on the back end. Malts are cereal and biscuit with a touch of caramel. If you fancy blood oranges then you'd love this.
M: Moderate carbonation, fairly crisp for the most part with a bit of juiciness on the finish.
OV: Decent, and I can see people enjoying this as a Summer beer, but just not my cup of tea to warrant a higher rating. There are other Summer beers I'd prefer to down a 6pk of.

Poured from a 355ml bottle. Pours a hazy orangey yellow colour. The nose is typical West Coast APA: pine, citrus grapefruit. On the palate the blood orange really shines through and complements the citrusy hop notes. There are some really nice fruit flavours here, with just a touch of sweetness. The body has a little helft to it. A very solid beer.

On tap at the Village Tavern in Geneseo, NY.

Pours a golden, hazy orange. Foamy one inch head, with good lacing down the glass.

Aromas include oranges, pineapple, grapefruit, and pine sap.

The taste is the same. The hop flavors are very orange-forward, due to the addition of blood oranges to this- without me knowing this, I would have just thought the beer was very fruity from the various hop varietals that can give off orange flavors. There's also some grapefruit and pineapple, with a small amount piney bitterness.

Light to medium bodied, low carbonation, crisp mouthfeel.

An excellent, drinkable hoppy APA, one I could easily put a few back of.

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.
