DNA New World IPA is a perfect beer of two halves. We’ve combined the best of UK and American brewing to create a toasty, nutty, hoppy beer which brings a taste of US craft beer to British drinkers at a very respectable 4.5%.

More than just another American import!
This beer celebrates some of the world’s best brewing expertise coming together to create one exciting brew.
Dogfish Head, founded by Sam Calagione, is famous for its inimitable style and “extreme” beers.
At the centre of DNA is Dogfish’s signature 60 Minute IPA (so-called due to the length of time the beer spends in the boil with hops being continuously added). The Charles Wells team then add their ‘old world’ brewing expertise to the DNA to produce this seriously good beer!
We, at Charles Wells, are thrilled and privileged that Dogfish Head have chosen us as their UK partners.

Mild, malty IPA, bit meh. Tastes somewhat underpowered, maybe i’m too used to having hoppy/bitter IPAs.

Served in a tulip glass from a 330ml bottle. Pours deep golden colour with a medium remaining off-white head, leaving medium lacing behind. Aroma is citrus with hops and slight caramel malts notes. Taste is very refreshing with slight citrus notes, pleasantly bitter-sweet. Quite thin body with a short slightly bitter finish. Nice, balanced and refreshing beer.

Purchased a bottle (330ml) along with other beers. I hadn’t tried this one before and there was one bottle left on the shelf at 69p. Nothing about this beer is abrupt or lacking in quality, although the aroma is a bit on the bland side. I would rather that than a smell I disliked though and I am rarely bothered about the aroma of a beer in a big way. Small head. Slightly cloudy in appearance. Not dark, not very light either. Tastes very good with only a hint of being fizzy and also the hops aren’t that obvious to me, compared to what I had expected beforehand. The real sensation taste-wise is some seconds after swallowing. Has what might be a hint of ginger, toast and some other kinds of strong flavour, but these are pleasant rather than being over the top. Rather thin, not a thick beer at all. Very much worth having again and certainly worth more than the price paid but wouldn’t pay a great deal for it like other IPAs. Refreshing - ideal for Spring/Summer months.

Bière ambrée, goût de noyau - vieux pineau, de l’amertume, assez forte et atypique. Pourquoi pas ça change.

Dorqui (2168) - Brescia, ITALY - MAR 7, 2016
Bottled 0,33L. Intense orange hazy color with nice head of long duration and nice bubbly aspect. Medium fresh hoppy and dried cereals aroma, notes of yeast and aged flower, cellar. Fresh prickly mouth, good bitter content and discreet alcoholic final.

Butelka 330 ml. Bursztynowy kolor piana mala biala. Aromat cytrusow trawy chmielu. Smak podobny dosc cierpkie i wodniste. Raczej nic bardziej wyrozniajacego sie na rynku.
