COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed exclusively for the 2013 Craft Brewers Conference (and a collaborative project with Reyes Beverage Group), Bloodline is an intensely-hopped IPA brewed with Blood Orange peel and juice.

According to our Brewmaster Matt Brophy, the result is a flavor profile that harnessed the best aspects of both the hops (Warrior, Citra, and Galaxy) and the citrus. He and his brewing team are very fond of hop-based citrus aromas, so experimenting with actual citrus was a natural extension of that.

2014 version is brewed with Northern Brewer, Citra and Galaxy.

CObiased (360) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2016
12oz bottle - it pours a mostly clear golden orange with a very thin off white head. Kinda unique aroma of mostly pit fruit with citrus aroma and a hint of buttery caramel. Not a big hoppy IPA. It straddles the line between fruit beer and IPA with sweet citrus, big caramel malts and a bitter finish.
