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.

Tap at CBC 16, red session. Hoppy. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits and pine. Mainly bitter. High carbonation. Refreshning

The Citrus just bursts through in this beer. Classic IPA nose and initial mouth feel, with the citrus coming through the more your drink.

Svesse (7849) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2016
(Bottle) Golden amber colour, hazy, with big frothy white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of orange peel, tropical fruit, mango, lemon, blood orange and hints of pine needles. Fruity, hoppy taste with orange, tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, lemon peel, caramel, some toast, honey and a generous citric, floral bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Fresh and tasty, with a generous hop presence. Nice one.

ALIBALI (687) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2016
Extrem fruchtig, belgisch, und malzig. Ein Hochgenuss fürs Näschen. Der Trunk dann schwer, malzig, orangeig und mit einer voluminösen Üppigkeit versehen. Der Nachhall pure Blood Orange Grapefruit Hop Power. Klasse but not refreshing. 0,33/4€ Dose von BEYOND BEER HH.

Deu (946) - Nantes, FRANCE - AUG 30, 2016
On tap at le rabellais in Nantes. great citrus aroma as you’d expect from a blood orange IPA. Color is a great golden body with a crisp snow white head. the flavor is exactly as advertised.

drjoeng (857) - SINGAPORE - AUG 30, 2016
7.2%ABV. IPA. Poured out gold. 4ºSRM. Nose is grapefruit peel and some fresh juice with some citrus sparkle. Inviting. Mouthfeel is juicy and soapy. Palate has sweet pale malt, sweet raw dough. There is also a nice broad minerality in the middle like San Pelligrino that has fruit juice in it. Hops are earthy, spicy with cilantro with a hint of resin, nice pine and spruce like flavors. Finish is brief-medium. Goes on Favorites List !

Holmen2 (2872) - NORWAY - AUG 25, 2016
Can shared with JMD at HNB 25.08.16. Hazy pale peach colour. Fine white head and lacing. Fine aroma and taste of American IPA, grapefruit, oranges, succade and a hint of mint and malt. Dry and quaffable. Artificial orange taste towards end.

Holmen1 (4810) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2016
0,33 boks fra helsekosten på Kvaddå, delt med Ovesen før tapping av vår nyeste esb: uklar korngul med flott skum som varer hele veien ned. Nydelig aroma og smak av Amarillo og Citra (to av mine favoritthumler) og søte appelsiner. Myk, med flott munnfylde og deilig (ganske mild) bitterhet i avslutningen. Velbalansert og eminent drikkbar.

Hoppy nose with a faint hind of orange juice. Mouth hoppy with faint marmalade dissolved in watered rum. No bitterness. Dangerously easy drinking...
