Craft Beer Review – Elysian Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale

Elysian SuperfuzzElysian – Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale: Is a Pale Ale with blood orange flavour that is brewed in Seattle, WA at a strength of 5.4% with 45 IBU’s and was enjoyed in a 22 oz beer glass at home.

Aroma and Appearance: It pours a cloudy amber with 2 fingers of foam and no visible bubbles. The aroma is fresh squeezed orange juice, doughy malt and tangerine citrus.

Flavour: It starts with the taste of fresh oranges, bready malt and a lot of acidic citrus in the middle with a classic dry piney finish.

Overall Impression: Although it’s a bit one dimensional, it really grew on me as I drank it as they captured the blood orange flavour nicely – plus the label is just plain awesome!

Rating: I give it a very good rating of 7/10, it was nice to drink, unique to the market and fairly well executed.

Food Pairing: Basically anything you would enjoy orange juice with, this would be a perfect brunch beer so go with toast, bacon and eggs.

  1. I had a few of these last fall (as I had bought a 6-pack). I liked the OJ on the front of the palate but found the piney finish overpowered all in the end. It wasn’t for me.
