My current favourite beer is Bloody 'Ell Blood Orange IPA by Beavertown Brewery, who are also my favourite brewery at the moment.
As soon as I seen this advertised on Instagram, I knew I was going to like it - what's not to like?! IPA is my favourite style of beer, and mixed with blood orange... It could only be good!
I finally picked up some from Deeside Drinks Emporium in Banchory (more on this place later) and it's safe to say I was not disappointed. The resulting beer is a solid hoppy IPA with a citrus orange flavour throughout, there is a slight bitterness to it, but to too much so that it upsets the pallet. It comes in at a hefty 7.2% ABV, so it does come with a slight punch to it.
Beavertown have since released a collaboration with Boneyard Brewing from Bend, Oregon called Bloody Notorious Blood Orange DIPA coming in at a whopping 9.1% ABV. I've not tried this yet, but I'm hoping to get my hands on some before it disappears.
