Dogfish Head Releasing Flesh & Blood IPA Nationwide

MILTON, DE (June 16, 2016) — With a long history of innovation in

the world of fruit IPAs, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is unveiling Flesh

& Blood, an honest to goodness IPA brewed with a bounty of real citrus. 

Hitting shelves nationwide starting July 4th weekend, Flesh & Blood

packs a hoppy and citrusy one-two punch.

Clocking in at 7.5% ABV and 45 IBUs, Flesh & Blood is brewed with real

lemon flesh and blood orange juice, balancing the resinous

characteristics of a hoppy American IPA with the explosive zesty

fruitiness and subtle dry tartness of citrus. The result? A highly

quaffable ale that’s incredibly unique, flavorful and easy to drink all

summer long. “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 Dogfish Head founder and president Sam Calagione.

While the growth of India Pale Ales has been widely documented, the sub-style of fruit-infused IPAs has been growing like gangbusters – over 800% last year compared to

2014. The fruit IPA segment is expected to have its highest volume year ever in 2016

and continue to grow for years to come. Dogfish Head’s Flesh & Blood, based on twenty

years of in-house fruit IPA R&D, is well positioned to lead that charge. “We’ve been

experimenting with fruit and citrus IPAs since 1996 when we released Aprihop, an IPA

brewed with apricots,” Calagione says. “We kept on tinkering to release Hellhound On My

Ale in 2011 and Sixty-One in 2012. Flesh & Blood represents two decades of tweaking

and perfecting this style.”
