(Milton, DE) – Brewed with an enticing ratio of complimentary fruit flesh, freshly squeezed juice, and northwest citrusy-hop varieties, Flesh & Blood IPA, Dogfish Head’s newest year-round brew, begins shipping nationally on January 16, 2017. Clocking in at 7.5% ABV and 45 IBUs, and exclusively available in six-pack cans, Flesh & Blood, an honest to goodness India Pale Ale, is crafted with orange peel, lemon flesh, and an aromatic blood orange juice, resulting in a perfectly balanced, yet explosive and zestily refreshing ale.
The off-centered heritage of Dogfish Head brew making is founded in the belief that the key to inventing and crafting delicious beers is through the consistent use of all-natural culinary products where consumers can easily identify the whole ingredients, fresh fruits and vegetables, and thoughtfully sourced spices chosen for each brew. “Because we derive flavors and aromas from actual fruits you would recognize at your local farmers market and not jugs or buckets of flavoring created in a laboratory, you will not see statements like ‘brewed with natural flavors’ or ‘natural flavors added’ on our labels,” says Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head founder and CEO. Recently released annual culinary studies populated by the National Restaurant Association demonstrate that consumers continue to be wildly passionate about fruit-infused, all-natural beers, as minimally processed, organically fresh products are preferred by the consumer.
Flesh & Blood represents over twenty-one years of commitment to tweaking and perfecting the fruit IPA style and Dogfish Head is proud to be a leading pioneer in this arena as it is the first American brewery to package and ship fruit IPA’s nationally. “We’ve been experimenting with fruit and citrus IPA’s since 1996 when we released Aprihop, an IPA brewed with apricots,” Calagione says. The India Pale Ale is the biggest craft beer style in America and the most popular breakout subset style in the fruit IPA. “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”, says Calagione.
