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!

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.

330ml Can from Good Spirits Co, drank at home (£3.00):
I had high hopes for this one going in and it definitely didn’t disappoint, it was a very easy beer to drink with an excellent pine and grapefruit taste that went down a treat. This one proved to be an extremely good beer from the London brewery, probably the best of the five beers I’ve tried from them so far and narrowly beating out the can of 8 Ball American IPA I had from them last year; excellent stuff.

dodskenta (66) - Rönninge, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2015
Golden orange color with a really nice looking white and frothy head. Aroma is packed with orange, zest and juicyness, resinous pine, some caramel. Flavour is not quite as flavourful as the nose is, but still very good. Oranges and tropical fruits, nice and bitter finish.

procraste (124) - FRANCE - MAY 29, 2015
Disons le tout net, c’est super bon. Le design est très chouette et ne ment pas sur le contenu. De l’orange, de la clémentine aussi ... tellement c’est délicat car même si le houblon se sent dès le nez, ainsi qu’en fin de bouche, ça n’est pas agressif mais plutôt caressant !

hawthorne00 (2736) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2015
Can. Hazy gold with a large white head. Certainly smells like blood oranges. Some hay, grass and pine too. Light bodied, very refreshing, no sign of the alcohol at all. Dominated by orange juice (nice) and some boiled pithy notes (not so nice). Some pine, grass and herbs at the end. Needs more beer.

MrBlueSky93 (430) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle from Cellar Door. Pours cloudy yellow-orange, medium to low carbonation, half a finger white head. Aroma of blood orange, light herb, pine, coriander....Taste of initial blood orange, pine, herb, coriander, light bitterness, not too devastating. Very nice!

Jarastlad (47) - Arlon, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2015
33 Cl Can from Miorge-Mihoublon, Arlon, Belgium. As soon as I cracked this baby open, this amazing citrus, orange and hop aroma filled the room. Some bitter hops are present in the back also. Impressive ! It pours a clear lightly coppered yellow. The taste is not as powerful as I expected but still very good. It is completely balanced between the lightness of the fruit (oranges), the bitterness of the hops which linger on and the overall light cereal base of the beer. Texture is smoothe with a finnish slightly dry. Again, Beavertown : Thank you for an amazing beer !
