Elysian Brewing Company Super Fuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Elysian Brewing Company Super Fuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale.
From the Elysian Brewing Company website: “…Is a mind-bending whirl of the aromas and flavors of blood orange and Northwest hops.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a pale cloudy orange with a fluffy white head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Fresh squeezed oranges, grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit and sweet malts.
Taste: Blood oranges take center stage, but do not overpower the tropical fruit, pine and citrus hop bitterness and the sweet malts balance this one out. Fruity, but in an excellent way.
Overall: Exceptionally well done, Elysian Brewing Company Super Fuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale is a real treat. This 5.4% ABV Pale Ale is a great mix of sweet and bitter and is incredibly refreshing. Pick some up if you see it.
