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.

Tap at Brewdog Helsinki. Grapefruit, blood orange and pine. Some biscuit-like malt notes. Mild to moderate sweetness and moderate bitterness. Dry and bitter finish.

tyrannosaurus (7) - ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2015 does not count
Had this from a can, was hugely impressed by the lovely balance that the blood orange flavour brings, sweetness at first then bitterness which stops it being sickly. Very creamy mouthfeel. Just gutted it’s seasonal.

Pour hazy golden color with medium white head. Aroma has tones of orange, sweet citrus fruits, pine and slightly tropical flowers. Taste follows the aroma, close to orange juice, also pine, tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit and some resiny characters, with a good kick of bitterness on the aftertaste. Very well malt-balanced.

On tap at Haand Festival. A finger-thick white head leaves curtains over an almost clear golden body. Fruity nose with citrus, pine cones and a light malty sweetish touch. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, with citrus peel, pine cone notes and some malty sweetness. It’s still rather dry on the palate, full-bodiend and with a nice carbonation. Lasting finish with citrus peel dominating. Delicious and refreshing. 150529
