Tasting notes and ingredients We’ve used lots of hops from North America – Columbus, Centennial, Cascade, Amarillo and Citra – because we just love the delicious, big, bold, citrus and pine flavours and aromas they bring to the beer. To balance out all this hoppy goodness we’ve added Rye, plus some Pale Ale and Cara Malt, to imbue sweetness, body and balance as well as some lovely subtle toffee flavours. Want to know more? The recipe for our Rye IPA was created by Adnams brewer (and certified hop freak) Belinda, who was excited to be able to let her passion for American craft beers shine through in this flavoursome brew. Jack Brand Rye IPA is available for a limited time in 30L kegs in selected outlets. Food Matches Pair our Rye IPA with spicy Mexican dishes or hot Caribbean flavours.

Teran (27) - Belgrade, SERBIA - DEC 21, 2014
Extremely hopy, pine and grains. And yes, punchy and caramel! Can not detect rye at all. Clear copper, little bit watery but nice.

MiP (13798) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle, 5%. Refreshing caramel aroma. Clear dark brown colour. Good stable tan head. The flavour is spicy and slightly roasted with a good grassy hoppiness. Well-balanced.

Bamsen78 (3422) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear copper brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of rye, yeast and hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of rye and estery and fruity touches. Bitter, hoppy finish. Low carbonation. Medium to thin body. Not bad for the style, and not but in general, either.

Full bodied with plenty of spice & bitterness. Caramel on the nose with some grassiness. Lots of flavour for the ABV - a pleasant surprise. Rated by BrewTom

DanielBrown (3924) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle at the Square Peg, Birmingham. Cut down the middle, like a battenburg. Half a nice, sweet APA, with nutty rye. Half an earthy red UK bitter. Pretty good either way, but doesn’t hit the craft IPA heights. Highs.

martin00sr (882) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2014
Clear copper, frothy offwhite head. Good hoppy aroma, fruity with caramel and pine notes. Flavour has hoppy bitterness, smooth with malty caramel and roasted notes. I can only detect very slight hints of rye. Simple but nice.

wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle @ Clothiers Arms, Yeadon. Dark amber-red with a thin bubbly head. Caramel and spices in its nose with the former prevalent in its taste too which is fused with the rye. Very interesting ale.
