Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Delaware) has announced that Flesh & Blood IPA has officially returned as the brewery’s newest year-round and canned offering.
After its initial release last year as a limited offering, it became quite clear to the folks at Dogfish Head that India Pale Ale fans simply could not get enough of Flesh & Blood IPA. This should have come as no surprise considering the brewery stuck to their commitment of using nothing but “simple, pure unadulterated fruit” by brewing this beer “with a ton of real citrus including lemon flesh and blood orange juice—hence the name—plus orange and lemon peel.” Add Warrior and Centennial hops to the mix, and Flesh & Blood comes together as an “honest to goodness India Pale Ale” that is “perfectly balanced, yet explosive and zestily refreshing.”
“We’ve been experimenting with fruit and citrus IPA’s since 1996 when we released Aprihop, an IPA brewed with apricots,” says Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head founder and CEO. “We think the fruit IPA category will surge the fastest in 2017 and we are proud of Dogfish Head’s innovator position in this realm.”
After listening to their fans and paying attention to current craft beer trends, Dogfish Head has now added Flesh & Blood IPA to their portfolio of Year-Round brews as of January 16, 2017. This offering is available now on draft and in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans – no longer packaged in bottles – at craft beer establishments in Florida and throughout the rest of the brewery’s distribution area. Get you some. Prost!
