One of my favorite things about MadTree is their sense of adventure and experimentation. You can’t step foot in their taproom without running into a new beer. You may not ever see it again, but who knows…you just might.
Last fall was one of those times. You might have heard murmurs around the Cincy craft beer world about Blood Orange PsycHOPathy. A marriage between the original MadTree Classic PsycHOPathy IPA and fresh real blood orange juice! While Blood Orange PsycHOPathy only made it to the taproom a few times, but the calls to bring it back started coming.
About a week ago MadTree started teasing something on their social media accounts and almost immediately I thought that this has to be Blood Orange PsycHOPathy. Many people on Twitter were agreeing. Well, this morning the news officially dropped! Not only is MadTree bringing back the Blood Orange goodness, but they are adding it to their seasonal canned lineup! They have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to perfect the recipe for the perfect harmony of flavors.
“We’re not the first to put fruit in an IPA, but customers have been helping us design this beer for the past year by providing their feedback on all the different batches,” said MadTree Brewing co-founder, Brady Duncan. “The tart and sweet character of the real Blood Orange juice complements the citrus, floral, and grassy hop flavors in PsycHOPathy. Plus, these are the some of the sexiest cans out there.”
And by golly the cans are AWESOME. They are perfect for your Bengals festivities covered in a medley of shiny black and orange!
So when can you get your hands on some Blood Orange? A Bengals tailgate and watch party supporting the Disabled American Veterans charity on Sunday, September 11th will kick-off the sale of cans beginning at 11 a.m. Fifty-percent of sales of Blood Orange PsycHOPathy cans, t-shirts, and posters sold that day will be donated to DAV in support of the DAV 5K at Sawyer Point on November 5. Catch-A-Fire Café will offer some special menu items along with their full menu all day.
There will be a limit of one case of cans per person. Can and draft distribution to restaurants, bars, and retailers will begin the week of September 12.
So please get on out to MadTree this weekend, support a good cause, get some awesome beer, and have some fun with your fellow Bengals Fans!
