Dogfish Head Flesh and Blood

What the brewers say

"Flesh & Blood began with a ton of real citrus including lemon flesh and blood orange juice—hence the name—plus orange and lemon peel. Then the brewers began searching for the perfect combination of hops to perfectly complement the citrus flavors."

What our panel thought

Aroma: "Light blood orange but mostly hop bitterness with a light biscuit malt sweetness."

Flavor: "Blood orange citrus upfront with a mild tartness that continues into the finish. Moderate carbonation helps put the tartness with medium bittering hops. A light underling biscuit malt presence but that isn't sweet. Not balanced and leans towards the bitter, tart, astringent side."

Overall: "The lemon adds a really nice tartness up front, and this pairs well with the other fruit character."
