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.

Hazy gold poured from a can. Strong citrus and resin aroma. Fruity, orangey, dank flavours. Quite high bitterness but more watery than I expected.

330ml from can bought at Oddbins. Yellow clear colour, nice hoppy aroma, tropical and citrusy flavour. Overall a good beer, but not a remarkable one

Strong notes of citrus, resin, golden with a good white head, light body, medium carbonation, not very intense, just a bit of citrus and the only the bitter final...obviously not bad but not very intense and balanced.

3.4
maledictum (780) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUN 25, 2017
The pour’s hazy gold with a tiny head. The nose is strong orange fruit candies. Some earthy, dank hops. Unwashed armpit funkiness. Pissy citrus. The taste is quite pulpy. Loads of mango and orange tropical fruit juice. Light bubblegum. Earthy bitterness on the finish. Pretty light and nimble, easy to drink. Overall, solid.

AssKicker (495) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - JUN 23, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2017 Bue à la canette. Couleur bien pâle, mousse correcte, nez plutôt citronné. Bien ronde et un poil sucrée pour une IPA, donc bien facile à boire avec des notes très fruitées d?orange. Amertume relativement faible. Bref, c?est très aromatique et ça se boit tout seul, du gros bonheur à l?état liquide.

AWS9 (703) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2017
Can. Interesting one. Starts very ’quick’ and refreshing. ’Light’. Has a nice orangey body, leaving citrus throughout yo’ mouth. But, then the alcy hits, giving it a boozy finish, but not unpleasant given the start was so silky smooth. I imagine you could get way too drunk drinking this on a hot day. So, be wary.
