Says the brewery on their website: ‘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.’
Deep golden in colour, with very strong aroma of tropical fruits, oranges and hints of strawberries. Strong flavour that starts out being dominated by oranges, then a truckload of tropical fruits and finally the oranges return in the long and lasting bitter finish. Beavertown Bloody ‘Ell at 7.2% is a very nice ‘twist’ on an IPA.
