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.

From rediscovered notes. Bottle probably from Tescos. Burnt orange pour with a white head. Malt, toffee and soft fruit aroma. Flavours of bitter citrus and light malt. Quite dry. Not bad.

Legacy rating. Bottle from Tesco. Pours orangey gold, with a fleeting watery head. Aroma very mild, with some sweetness and less hops than expected for the style. Aftertaste somewhat metallic, and overall rather bland.

Bien inutile... Nez légèrement malté. Fond résineux qui se detache péniblement d’agrumes eventees. Bouche insipide : un malt oxydé, très aqueuse, un fond résineux avec un citron chimique.

Color anaranjado limpio. Espuma blanca abundante. Olor a lúpulos americanos, resinosos y a pino, toques dulces. Sabor dulces, toques resinosos con final amargo.

Nulla di indimenticabile, alla vista non è male e anche al naso non è malaccio, ma dopo aver bevuto tre sorsi mi sembra un po’ troppo fuori dima.

Kolor bursztynowy, tylko nieznacznie zamglony, z bardzo niewielk?, ?ó?taw? pian?. Aromat jest mixem piw angielskich i ameryka?skich, jest karmel, nuty kwiatowe ale s? i slodkie owoce tropikalne z delikatn? ?ywic?. Smak jest podobnie jak aromat wyj?tkowy. S? tu s?odkie owoce tropikalne, ?ywica i odrobina cytrusów, jest karmel, toffee i nuty kwiatowe. Ca?o?? ??czy si? ca?kiem przyjemnie dla podniebienia. Goryczka w moim odczuciu niska i krótka, delikatnie ?ywiczna. Wysycenie ?rednie.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2016 Colore arancione pulito, moderatamente luppolata con profumi di arancia e limone. Bassa carbonatura, schiuma lieve e non persistente. Amaro leggero e aroma poco resistente

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.

Ambrée cuivrée, nez doux légèrement herbacé, bouche peu effervescente, légère amertume, notes herbacées et malts doux, un peu aqueuse. Mitigé. Bouteille 33cl bue à La REcyclerie, Paris, France, le 02/04/2016.
