COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed exclusively for the 2013 Craft Brewers Conference (and a collaborative project with Reyes Beverage Group), Bloodline is an intensely-hopped IPA brewed with Blood Orange peel and juice.

According to our Brewmaster Matt Brophy, the result is a flavor profile that harnessed the best aspects of both the hops (Warrior, Citra, and Galaxy) and the citrus. He and his brewing team are very fond of hop-based citrus aromas, so experimenting with actual citrus was a natural extension of that.

2014 version is brewed with Northern Brewer, Citra and Galaxy.

An slightly orange beer, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has tropical mangos, grapefruits, low maltyness. Taste has grapefruits and some sweeter blood grapefruits, medium bitterness. Medium bodied. The used blood grapefruits isn’t too much dominating. Balanced. Enjoyable and good beer.

Wojo21 (175) - Pelplin, POLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Aromat cytrusowy, grejfrutowy, słodki, dochodzą nuty słodowe. Barwa złocista, klarowne, piana średnio obfita. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie z tym, że dochodzie taka słodka czerwona pomarańcza. Goryczka średnia, ogólnie spodziewałem się więcej, aczkolwiek jest poprawnie.

Cristobal37 (731) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 18, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Serious grapefruit and sweet citrus, peaches on the nose. Really fruity with mild citrus hop bitterness. Palate is mango, strawberry and fruit juice. I think I mistakenly expected something a bit more bitter. Nice, but a bit too much like a fruit salad than a fruity hoppy beer like I anticipated. Anyways it?s miles better than Anchor?s Mango Wheat so if you want a kickin tropical fruit ale this ones for you.

On tap at Industry. Pours a clear orange with medium frothy white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong orange peel and floral. Medium body, citrus, juicy, light finish, very good.

Cloudy red orange with white top. Strong aroma of citrus and orange followed in the taste. Balance between sweet malty and hopy bitternes with the second slightly prevailing.

Hazy gold - amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy, fairly dry and has decent fine carbonation. Airy malts, a little cream. Mild orange peel, modest blood orange. Light and sweetish floralness. Smooth finish. Intensely hopped? Pull the other one!

serjaymz (163) - Istanbul, TURKEY - JUN 29, 2016
29.06.2016 Datça.. Görüntü; hafif kızıla çalan portakal renginde, saydam, beyaz köpük hızlı söndü, gazlılık yüksek, bardak dibinden ayrı ayrı kollarla hızlı hızlı yğkseliyorlar. Koku; narenciye kokuları hemen yayılıyor, ekşi değil tatlı tınılat, doğal olarak portakal gibi.. Akide şekeri, malt.. Tadım; orta gövdeli, maltsı, acılık çok yüksek değil. Portakal, narenciye dışında çok kompleks değil. Genel olarak burunda damağa göre önde olan, tok ve gövdeli olmasına rağmen kolay içilen acılığı düşük bir IPA

Bottle. Clear golden color with perhaps a slight orange touch, average sized off-white head that diminishes quickly but leaves fair lacing. Aroma is malts, hops, citrus hops. Taste lightly malts, plenty of hops, nice hop bitter and lightly fruity. Decent body and carbonation

nuplastikk (5687) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2016
12oz bottle. hazy orange body, foamy off-white head. Not that impressive of a hop presence. The blood orange taste is boring, like a neutered canned version, not a bonus. Drink,able, so off tones, but not an impressive example of an IPA or fruited IPA.
