Our brewer Alana has working on her home recipe for a blood orange IPA for a while and when we decided it was time to stump up and buy her a Braumeister she got straight to work on perfecting it.
We had a great time tasting all the trial brews but when we tried the current version, we knew we had to share it with everyone.
Deep golden in colour with a slight reddish tinge, this beer hits you with a bold, citrus aroma with dank hop notes. There are a lot of hops in this beer. A lot. This beer uses so much Citra and Mosaic we had to call in a few favours from our generous friends at Two Birds just to get enough to dry hop it.
The end result is a beer that is bursting with juicy flavour and aggressive hop bitterness that finishes on a slightly sweet note, thanks to the addition of the fresh blood orange juice that gives the beer it’s distinctive colour.
At 7.8% ABV and 80 IBU, we think it’s fair to say this is one bad motherf***er of a beer.
