BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

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.

This beer is a straight up a blast of flavor rolling onto your palate. The blood orange was an excellent pick to give this beer a tropical vibe. The lemon flesh and orange peels blend seamlessly with the flavor to really produce a sweet, fruity, and tangy rush. The traditional IPA bitterness is almost completely obliterated by this combination. The pairing of flavors gives this beer the resemblance of fruits not even found in its main ingredients, such as pineapple, kiwi, and pomegranate. The flavor profile definitely resembles a well-mixed rum punch more so than it does an IPA, which has its advantages and its disadvantages depending on your preferences.

Rating 4/5, a vivid and lively assortment of bright juicy flavors that makes for an intense and enjoyable tasting experience.

A nice tasty IPA. Well balanced with sweet citrus up front and a dry finish without being to bitter. Clean amber color, Hoppy cascade American IPA in the nose, poor head retention, smooth mouth feel with a medium body.
