1. Flesh & Blood IPA, Dogfish Head, Milton, DE
Milton, DE mainstay Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is out with a new IPA this month. Flesh & Blood IPA, like many other IPAs released in 2016, incorporates the complementary flavors of citrus. Flesh & Blood works orange peel, lemon flesh and blood orange juice into a burnt orange-to-amber-colored IPA that leans heavily on the already citrusy centennial hop varietal along with warrior and an experimental hop variety. Expect balance here between hops and malts—not a pure west coast hop bomb—that will be heavy on the fruit flavors that have become so popular in the style. Flesh & Blood is on shelves now, will return in October, and hits the year-round portfolio in early 2017.
