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.

Lonick (1025) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2015
Bottle @home tasting General Election 2015 (rating backlog) Pours amber/orange with an off white head. Nose of toast but no marmalade, caramel, toffee and floral notes. Taste is bitter at first but then its gets sweet, i’m just not sure about this.

artemb (251) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - NOV 3, 2015
Aroma: Caramel, light hops. Weak taste with light bitterness. Very light bitter-caramel aftertaste. Frustrating beer.

I find this new I.P.A disappointing. You can taste the side of malt but it is weak and the hop is not existing. The colour is ok, the carbonation is average with a weak foam. It is more a kind of beer when you are thirsty in you garden during a hot summer.

MarcoDL (3199) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2015
At Craft & Draft. Aroma of maris malt and a little hop. Taste of bitter caramel, bitter hops and a little pine. Bit disappointing.

corkyrory66 (1007) - BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2015
« New World ipa », dixit le brasseur anglais, qui veut ainsi faire passer cette ipa comme étant inspirée par les Etats-Unis … Nous verrons dans la conclusion qu’il en va tout autrement, même s’il s’agit d’une bière de collaboration. Niveau abv de 4,5 %. Couleur ambre roux, à la clarté nette. Bulles ultra fines, en colonne centrale, très vives. Mousse beige clair, épaisse, puis nappage soyeux à 2 mm. Arômes de malt cara, épice, houblon, point de câpre, thym, cyprès. 1ère bouche soyeuse à l’entame sur malt et résine. Arrière-bouche assez acrimonieuse, sans vraie harmonie. 2ème avec le même ensemble malt/résine, avec un peu de cassonade. Arrière-bouche plus intense et houblonnée. 3ème entre un gâteau bubblegum et une sucrerie au candi… Arrière-bouche avec un côté tannique. La longueur perd toute harmonie, et tombe dans le n’importe quoi. Jambes fines, marquées. Alcool sans efficacité sur les saveurs (le pourrait-il ?). Finale assez quelconque. CONCLUSION : la Wells classique (comme il est dit sur la collerette) a fait chuter la ipa américaine de Dogfish au niveau d’une banalité … L’inverse d’une collaboration, une destruction ...

Bozo_skeleton (823) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 10, 2015
Cuivrée, petite carbo, collet fin de grosses bulles fuyant Aromes caramel, fruits exotiques mais c’est leger, resineux. Le cote resineux ressort tout de suite en bouche sans etre dominant, mince et liquide, tres courte pour une IPA. Un peu decevenant même si ça se laisse boire avec plaisir. Ressemble plus a une biere de soif

mt_hall (174) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2015
Bottled. A clear, deep copper colour with a small head that was soon gone. Very piney aroma with some malt; fresh, but not terribly enticing. Piney hops dominate the flavours too. Very dry and bitter, especially towards the end. Clean and well balanced, but overall I wasn’t especially keen.

Towey1989 (958) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear pale amber colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of caramel, slights nuts, subtle pine, grass and herbal hops. Taste is similar of caramel, slight nuts, subtle pine, a little orange, grass and earthy, herbal hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, dry, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Quite malty and earthy for an American pale ale. A very safe, bland beer overall.
