Very interesting look. The hue is almost orange soda-ish, though there's certainly some haziness. Also produces a nice loose white cap with some decent retention. The smell is in the same vein, though it's a bit more off-putting in its artificiality. I guess that could be because I'm not super into citrus generally, though. In the taste, it comes back around. The citrus becomes a complimentary factor, rather than the dominant one. Hops are nice and sharp, though not quite to the edge of bitterness, at least not until the back end. The mouthfeel is nice and smooth and the ABV is well-hidden. Overall, an uneven beer, but one I don't hate in spite of my typical distaste for the style.

DATE: November 16, 2018... OCCASION: having finished the family game of Monopoly, the adults need to laugh and drink... GLASSWARE: Stoudts pint... a transparent, golden body that showers the glass upward with a storm of effervescence, building a head that is a half-finger white and blanketing like snow... the draw is intense sour orange, creamy vanilla, berries, light tea, and garden vegetables... a mild-bodied experience, smooth and agreeable... its flavor profile is rather singular, sour and juicy orange, with little else that deviates from its intention.... as an add-in to the fifteen pack of IPAs, not too bad...

A: Pours a golden orange color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Lots of blood orange up front along with some citrus and bready malt. Blood orange very froward

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the blood orange and then goes into the citrus, bready malt, and moderate bitterness. Finishes with lingering blood orange

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid IPA that is very blood orange forward. Easy to drink. Good take on the base

Mostly clear burnt gold with a thin, fuzzy khaki blanket leaving some reaching arms of lace, this one tastes like Hi-C and Tang with a bitter, crazy pine accent. Rather have a regular.

Love the packaging! this citrusy ale is about as far as I can dive into the fruity flavored beers and still enjoy it. While it has the blood orange notes, it still feels like an IPA.

When I burp, I taste fruit loops!

Bright tangerine body with white frothy head. Aroma of tangerines, blood orange, grass, and fruit juice. Tastes of blood orange, citrus cream soda, grass, pine, and medium bitterness. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

I'm not a giant fan of 21st but I enjoy their beers. Something is right with this Blood Orange or I'm beginning to like the style more. Got this as part of a variety pack and place this one probably at the top of the pack.

Blood orange look, scent and flavor on this beer. Maybe a bit watery from tap. Not to heavy on the bite. To sum it up, a non sweet orange soda mostly. Pretty decent.
