Catawba Brewing Releases Small Batch Blood Orange IPA

Morganton, NC — Blood Orange IPA (6.5% ABV) is the latest in Catawba’s new series of fruited hoppy beers, which began with last month’s popular Pineapple IPA. Ripe citrus and tropical fruit flavors marry perfectly with the aroma and flavor notes of fresh West Coast hops.

Brewed with flaked wheat in the mash, this India Pale Ale features the soft mouthfeel and juicy character associated with New England IPAs. Citrus-forward hops were selected for both the whirlpool and dry-hopping, with a final addition of over 150 lbs of real blood orange puree. The result is a citrus bomb of an IPA light in body and incredibly drinkable at only 55 IBUs.

This is Passport Beer #4 in Catawba’s 2017 Small Batch rewards program – available in their three tasting rooms, and in limited distribution. Representatives from the Asheville Brewers Alliance will be at Catawba’s South Slope brewery (32 Banks Ave) for the release day, selling tickets for the Asheville Beer Expo on Feb. 18.
