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.

Wow! A perfect refreshing,fruit based, awesomely balanced IPA. This looks like red grapefruit ,smells like lemon, orange, grapefruit pith, faint fresh baked croissant. You get the zing of the citrus and hops. Seems to be perfectly off set by caramel malts. Overall I give this a perfect score for it's originality, quality, and flavor. Well done!

Oh, Dogfish Head, you keep doing these wonderful things. Flesh & Blood is a seriously creepy name for a beer, and when you consider it could also be skin (orange peel), flesh (lemon flesh), and blood (blood orange juice), you have to honor them for their restraint. It's a hoppy IPA that's been struck in the head with a slice of lemon and plenty of orange flavors. The overall effect is quite tart, which I like very much. The hops are very forward to stand up to the citrus, and it is a very pleasing brew.

This American IPA has become my go to beer, never fails to leave me satisfied. First time I tried it over a year ago at the Dogfish Head Alehouse in Gaithersburg Va, I was amazed with the amount of citrus flavors, the color was a beautiful copper and the aromas I capture while drinking from the pint glass was extraordinary. Very good tasting American IPA with enough bitterness to leave you satisfied.

My new favorite beer, and I've turned about 15 people onto it since Thanksgiving...Ironically, I found it the cheapest in South Bend, IN ($10) which was their normal price. Around me, it's $13, with some jacking it up to $15. I like the citrus taste, not over the top like a shandy, but refreshing.

On draft at the brewery into a pint glass.
Deep copper color. Thick, off-white head, maybe slightly orange in appearance.
Smell is floral and citrus/lemon.
Taste is a citrus and hop explosion in my mouth. More lemon than blood orange and a bit of grapefruit. Strong hop finish.
Lightly carbonated with a medium body.
Overall, I love this beer. Would put it up there with Grapefruit Sculpin for a citrus IPA. Was a limited release. Tried to find this in Baltimore but no luck. Might have to drive back to the brewery (2.5 hours each way) and fill my growlers for a last taste.

Yeah! An actual bloody ale! Pours amber Crimson, making me want to jam the King. Got a thcik foamy head a couple fingers fat dissipating into a thin mildly bubbly line within a minute or three.

Nose out the can is amazing.. easily wouldve been a 4.75 but the nose out the can lost it's uniqueness. I bet it's the shit when fresh.

Taste is light and AWESOME! That citra, that orange, that glassy clean finish! A little dry but tasty af. I wish I could visit this brewery one day.
