COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bloody ‘Ell – We have never brewed a straight IPA at Beavertown, why change the habit of a lifetime! Here we take a stripped back IPA malt bill and highly hop it with the tropics of Amarillo and Citra and pile head on with kilos of Blood Orange zest and juice late in the boil, bringing you a smack of citrus and hints of warm orange aromas. One of our favourite and most popular seasonal brews. We will be canning Bloody ‘Ell too from February until the bloody oranges run dry!

jerd16 (226) - Gloucestershire, - APR 8, 2014
Overwhelming murky. Orange-peel color with clean-white small head. Good lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, some peripheral tangerine. A little musky, earthy. Decent but where’s the blood orange? Lacking refinement. Taste is muddled and dare I say it...a little generic. Pithy grapefruit bitterness is nice and lasting; a saving grace of sorts. There’s a menthol/chemical infiltrator in the taste that’s slightly unpleasant. I had juicy expectations. Unfortunately it was a ’dank’ squib. Great idea, great aesthetics; lacking in substance.

Draft. Clear golden amber color, medium white head. Aroma of bright orange peel. Taste is juicy orange marmelade with a bit of tartness. Decent.

beer-yum (749) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 23, 2015
Restrained citrus fruit aroma (at temperature served) in a cloudy gold pour. Flavour is the same - citrus fruit front and center with a nicely balanced body to follow. Restrained finish leaves one wanting another.

villevav (300) - FINLAND - APR 23, 2015
[2015-03-27, Public House Pivo, Oulu] Sameankeltainen, tiheä vitivalkoinen vaahto. Tuoksussa sitruksista ja hieman yrttistä humalaa sekä hennosti ohramallasta. Maussa yllättävänkin paljon makeutta, jälkimaussa yrttistä humalaa, jopa vähän soijaaa. Keskitäyteläinen runko ja hiilihapotus.

Pedrens (133) - SPAIN - APR 5, 2015
Barril.Amarillo paja muy suave y casi transparente. Frutal melocotón fresa, algo a heno, frambuesa. Bastante aquosa, buen balance dulce amargo...aunque un poco soft, sobre todo el final.
