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.

33 cl. bottle. Hazy, dark amber bordering brown with a thin off-white head. Fruity aroma with grasses, herbal-spiced notes - the rye malts - caramel and bread. Light citrus and grapefruit. Taste is light bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity with herbal-spiced rye malts and caramel. I like the rye malts in this one.

Good light brown color. Fruity aroma. Bitterness at the end. Low body (too low for my taste).

Pours a dark amber, light brown. More malty that expected with summer fruits and a bit of that rye.

JorgeLee (1154) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Keg at the Champion W2. Ruddy brown colour, clear, thin foam. Fruity crunchy hops, balanced by some solid amber malts. Bittersweet rather than bitter. Faint hint of some rye funkiness. Not the most aggressively flavoured example I’ve had of this style, but well balanced and tasty.

NordicV (1095) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2014
Kopparfärgad öl med lättare gulvitt skum. Doften är framförallt karamell och citrus men även toner av rostat bröd. Detta återkommer i smaken med viss nötighet. Rågen märks förvånansvärt lite.

Holmen1 (2306) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Fra fat på Charlie’s Bar, København juli-14: mahognyfarget med kort beige skum. Lett karbonering og slank kropp gjør den lett å helle over drøvelen. Litt rugsyrlighet kler humlen godt. Tørr mot slutten. Men alt i alt en lettvekter, ingen match for Mike sin rye ipa.

Bullit (3971) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from More than Beer. BB 31 03 15. Clear copper coloured, with an off-white thin head. Nose is crystal and caramel malts, rye, grassy hops. Flavour is caramel malts, rye, grassy, fairly bitter, with a citric hoppiness. Not hopped quite like IPA standards, but very enjoyable nonetheless. Finish is fairly bitter and dry. Well balanced.
