BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
An honest to goodness IPA brewed with a bounty of real citrus including lemon flesh, blood orange juice plus orange and lemon peel. A combination of Warrior, Centennial, and a rare experimental hop to perfectly complement the citrus ingredients and flavor. Flesh & Blood balances the resinous hoppy characteristics of an American IPA with the explosive, zesty fruitiness and subtle dry tartness of citrus to deliver a highly quaffable ale that’s incredibly unique and lovely to down the whole year round.

Look- amber color with about a fingers width of head. The head disappears pretty quickly though.
Smell- hoppy and piney with trace amounts of citrus.
Taste- The hops bite the tounge, with a nice soft bitterness. I can also just barely taste the citrus, but I think the citrus that dominates this ipa is citrus peel, not the pulp. Which is shame imo.
Feel- This has a surprisingly nice mouth feel ranging from medium to heavy.
Overall- Not a bad IPA, I feel that it’s just missing something. It’s still drinkable though.

Pours copper color with white fluffy head. Notes and accents of blood orange. Smooth and bold IPA.

A balance of hoping, citrus and malt that isn't over pill or over fruity.

Taste rating in words: it's riding on a unicycle, great balance and coordination

Canned on 10/01/18, consumed on 10/16/18.

Pours a deep copper red with a finger of khaki head.

Smells of bright citrus fruits, specifically lemon, (duh) darker malts, and pine.

Taste is an intriguing mix of the citrus and rich maltiness with a pine hoppiness filling out the taste. The botterness is fairly low, a little too low in my opinion and the mouthfeel is lacking. I do like that the malts give it a sort of red ale vibe, a style I wish there were more of in the 7% + range.

Flesh & Blood is an intriguing beer that fairs better than Dogfish Head's other recent culinary inspired beer, Lupu Luau. However it still suffers from an issue that seems to be ever present with Dogfish and that is that many of their beers sound great, but that doesn't always translate to an awesome beer. Overall, its decent.

This is an amazing citrus infused ipa. If you are a fan of ipas and apricots and citrus then this is the beer for you. I was impressed with the wonderful balance of this beer. Unique and satisfying.
