Conshohocken Blood Money

Posted: October 26, 2016 in American IPA, Conshohocken Brewing Company, Reviews

I’ve made my love of blood oranges well-known on the site. I’ve tried almost every beer that I could try that uses it, but I find that it’s a very hard flavor to utilize and execute well.

ABV: 6.7%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Blood Money is a super juicy Blood Orange IPA, with aroma and flavor bursting at the seams. Bravo and Cascade hops and a hearty grain bill complement the juiciness of the blood orange.”

Random: I didn’t realize when I got this can how dented the bottom was.

This beer poured with a quarter of a finger of cream-colored head that dissipated really slowly. It left a huge amount of lacing on the glass. The body had some chill haze and was a mahogany color. There was moderate carbonation visible. The nose was grassy with orange zest. I couldn’t necessarily say that it was blood orange specifically. It also had a straw characteristic to it as well. The taste was more flavorful than the nose, but light bodied. They nailed the blood orange with lots of blood orange zest. Then, some cattiness came through next. It also had a lot of grass and pink grapefruit flesh. After it warmed for a few minutes, I got fresh squeezed blood orange juice too. I couldn’t pick up any malt on this, but I didn’t mind. As mentioned before, it had a light body without being thin and moderate carbonation. The finish was lengthy and sticky with blood orange pith and juice. This was $2.50 for a pounder can ($.16 per ounce). I loved this beer. I thought they nailed the pith and juice note, I just wish the body was a tad thicker. If you like blood oranges, give this a try.
