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.

KyotoLefty (9973) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 22, 2017
Can from Leighton. Lovely orange nose, Amarillo, peaches, lemon, clean malt but it shows a solid backbone, some biscuit. Hazy gold, low lacy head. Great flavor, orange, lemon, some grapefruit. Love this English malt in the back. No caramel, but biscuits and rich. Really nice stuff.

BeardedAvenger (595) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2017
Can from Inn At Home, Guildford. Fruity aroma - pineapple to borrow from a prior rating - with pine and resin. A hazy gold. Lively white head, although it soon thins out. Chunky monkey bubbles. Starts off lightly sour, then develops a bitterness with a real citrus bite. Light - medium bodied. Slightly oily. Lively carbonation, with a long dry finish. Good stuff. The blood orange gives it a real lift but not worth the hype.

rodsquad (174) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - APR 21, 2017
Can from Oddbins Aberdeen. Pours clear gold with thin white head. Sweet fruit aromas of pineapple, grapefruit with a light citrus sherbet. Clean fresh pine finish. Taste is light citrus with a beautiful balance of fresh pine bitterness. Light body with a softening oiliness and a dry gentle to medium sparkle. A fantastically light but punchy IPA.

LazyPyro (912) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2017
330ml can. Clear pale golden colour with a small white head. Aroma: citrus, blood orange, zest. Taste: juicy citrus fruit, grapefruit, blood orange isn’t that strong in the flavour to be honest but it’s there just about, some in the aftertaste too, light sweet with a bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty decent IPA I just think the blood orange notes are a bit too subtle when they’re calling attention to it in the name of the beer and on the label.

ngjvilla (6) - cardiff, WALES - APR 17, 2017 does not count
Hazy golden colour. Alcohol is hidden well. Orange after taste. Was expecting a bit more from this, but still decent.

Mishnok (239) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2017
From 330ml can. Pours a dark lemon colour with a small frothy head. Aroma is of orange and fruity hops. Orange in the flavour is quite subtle, almost manadarin like. Hoppiness, but not too bitter. Quite a clean finish. Nice beer to end a sunny day with. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Always mystified at how many people froth over this one. This is like every other crafty IPA you’ve ever had: big hops, hidden alcohol, unfulfilled claim of originality that you can’t taste (in this case it’s blood orange. Me neither.) None of which is bad, by any means, I just always want it to be better than it turns out to be. But it’s fine, try a can. Then try something better.

On keg at hanging bat. Pours hazy gold. Nose of tangy orange, toffee. Taste is juicy tropical fruit, dry finish.
