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!

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2013
[keg, the Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh] Hazy golden orange pour, disappointingly not deep ruby red. However, that’s the only let-down from this beer – sherbety, some honeysuckle, lots of carbonation, with a brilliant balance of flavour. It’s an absolute belter, [09072013]

Idiosynkrasie (7604) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2013
330ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour with small, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Excellent fruity hop aroma, lots of blood orange, grapefruit, some resin. Taste is fruity, resinous and bitter hoppy, grapefruit, blood orange, orange, tangerine, sweaty resinous notes, minimally sweet fruity, not so much caramel malty basis; soft palate, lasting, bitter, fruity finish. Superb stuff.

stravale (3078) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - JUL 10, 2013
Keg @ Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh [090713]
Orange, white haze, thin white head, slight lacing
Aroma - oranges, orange juice, sweet fruity juicy malt, lots of orange
Taste of bitter citrus orange, big time orange juice, bitter orange zest, orange sherbert, sweet fruity malt background, not that complex but just a great tasting ipa, lots of citrus hops, alcohol well hidden, yum yum
Palate - soft carb, light to medium body. Palate - strong citrus sherberty palate, very zesty. Finish as main flavour, very fruity ornage, strong bitter zest linger
Overall - A great ipa, the orange just works so well in this

Bottle. Deep orange colour and plenty of similar on the nose with plenty of other fruitiness going on. A little bit of pine. ABV is pretty well hidden. By far my favourite effort from Beavertown so far. After a shaky start these guys are well on their way to being my go-to London brewer.

The_Bish (1123) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2013
Yep, better Beavertown, thank you muchly, enjoyed this lots like. Orange? Yep, obv. A pleasantly bitter drink with hops that are enjoyable, I like.

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2013 Bottle. Pours orange with a small white head which lays around for a little while. Nose is very zesty. Loads of orange with orange & lemon rind. Huge, sweet citric fruits surround the nose. Coming through in the taste is the same sweet, citric fruits. Very big on orange and orange rind. Super juicy and zesty. Massive fruit driven IPA. Solid

Leighton (21477) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle at home in London - sourced from City Beverage Co. Pours cloudy orange-gold with a moderate, creamy white head. The nose gives off a lot of pine, some ripening tropical fruits, a bit of dank citrus. Medium to big sweet flavor with lots of juicy, ripe citrus fruits, some sticky pine, pectin, a decent pale malt backdrop. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Well and resinous to finish with mild warmth, plenty more ripe citrus, nips of booze-soaked orange and tangerine, pale malt sugars, more pectin, some grapefruit pith. A pretty solid IPA overall. I wouldn’t say it’s any more citrusy than a well-made IPA without explicitly-added fruit, but it is a damn fine IPA.
