Style: American IPA

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.

My old high school buddy had a can of this for me to try whilst I was visiting over the Holidays. It poured a clear copper with thin white head that did not leave much lace. The scent had hints of citrus peel. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with bitter fruit presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a very drinkable beer.

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.

Flesh & Blood IPA | Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. A canned variant poured into a pint glass, the head's three fingers thick, with webbed lacing, a a deep reddish amber body.

I smell a bright mix of the hops and additional elements

Tastes like a very enjoyable blend of the juices and hops with a very clean finish.

Medium-light mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

Overall, I'll rate Flesh & Blood IPA | Dogfish Head Craft Brewery at a 4.5.

The amber colored body was slightly hazy, and the head was quite small, maxing out at one finger thick at best. The aroma had a citric tang, but paled in comparison to the likes of Grapefruit Sculpin. The taste provided a mix of the citrus fruits and some herbal hops, but felt like a bit of a mess due to some clash between the lemon and hops. Finish was dry and somewhat astringent. Hoped for something better than what it was.
