Share This Review

Blood Orange Lorenzini is an American Double IPA brewed by Maui Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a can.

Appearance

The ale pours a cloudy copper and is capped by a thick head of soapy off-white foam that shows fine retention. Residual droplets appear during reduction while patches of lace coat the glass during consumption.

Aroma

A pleasant aroma offers sweet tropical fruits and a hint of doughy bread.

Appearance

An astringent flavor or hops mellows as the beer loses its chill. A taste of bready malt gives way to tropical fruit juices of mango and orange before it finishes dryly with a lingering bite of grapefruit. There’s a subtle note of dark chocolate that appears on the back end.

Mouthfeel

The feel fits the norm with its medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall

The Blood Orange Lorenzini has a lovely appearance, aroma, and feel. Its taste of sweet fruit juices is nicely countered by a biting citrus that makes this IPA very agreeable. Its relatively high ABV has no impact on the aroma or taste and is easily quaffed.

Cheers to the Sharks

This DIPA was originally brewed as a collaboration between Maui Brewing and Pizza Port Brewing Company as a benefit for sharks. The beer’s name derives from a shark’s “Ampullae of Lorenzini”, the shark’s electrosensory organ used to detect changes in electric fields.
