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.

A hazy dark golden orange color with a slightly of white two fingers of soapy head. Nice glass lacing.

Smells like oranges and lemons. The orange smell is strongly like smelling an orange peel with that slight bitterness to it Has a bit of pine in the background.

Taste follows the nose with that orange peel flavor. The taste is like orange zest with a little squirt of lemon juice on it. The bitterness is fairly light.

Mouth feel is kind of a dry tartness with a snappy finish that is somewhat puckering. The finish leaves a person looking for another sip.

Overall this is an extremely refreshing and fruity IPA. It does carry a 7.5% ABV that can be picked up a bit in the background as you continue to sip on it. While the beer is a good refreshing beer for summer that ABV did have a bit of a warming effect.

Flesh & Blood IPA brewed by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, with an ABV of 7.50% This American IPA pours out a deep golden amber color, almost a copper color with a nice white head. There is also a nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich with hop bitterness, a slight sweetness. You also pick up on some nice earthy grains and malts in the smell as well. Between the look and smell this is one inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is Bold with hop bitterness, and some citrus flavors. Then you pick up on some nice smooth earthy grains and malts. There is alot going on in Flesh & Blood IPA. I will give it this The citrus notes are a nice touch to this brew. The body of this American IPA is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to. It is really hard to pick up on the 7.50% ABV in this brew, it is just that smooth. The mouth feel is Bold, Hoppy, Citrus, Clean, Smooth, and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Flesh & Blood IPA 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, did a super nice job with this American IPA.
