In this special beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from my favorite East Coast craft brewery, which is known as Flying Dog Brewery. It is their Bloodline Blood Orange Ale. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of East Coast craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this craft brewery. Let us get into this Blood Orange Ale.
It has a cloudy golden color with a white constant head. The aroma has a heavy orange with a fresh squeeze note. The taste has a orange notes with a dry orange bitter aftertaste. It is a pretty drinkable beer.

In the end, everyone has their breweries. In that list of craft brewery, craft beer drinker will buy new beers that they make. It does not matter on the beer style. I am one of those craft beer drinkers. I will pick up new beers even if I highly dislike the beer style. I am not saying it is the case with this beer. I am not a huge fan of oranges or blood oranges. It is a good beer but it is not for me. They brewed it with a nice balance and making it pretty drinkable beer. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
