Elysian Super Fuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale

CIMG7532

Brand new seasonal from Elysian. This beer features Pale and Munich malts with Northern Brewer and Cascade hops with some tasty blood oranges.

Stats:
American Pale Ale. 5.4% ABV. 45 IBUs. Summer Seasonal.

Pale orange color, decently fluffy head.

Mostly malty on the nose, hint of fruit, but I wouldn’t think of blood orange.

Mouthfeel is quite nice. Pretty drinkable with medium carbonation.

Malty with a little hint of sweetness, but it dries out with a medium bitterness on the finish. It’s got a bit of a fruity flavor that I suppose I would describe as orangey, but I wouldn’t suspect there were any in here. You can taste a hint of orange zest on the finish.

It’s a solid beer, but I’m not really getting the blood orange flavor. 88 points.
