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.

Puszka 330ml. Ciemny herbaciany kolor . Piana biala srednia szybko sie redukuje. Aromat cytrusow ananasow trawy chmielow. Smak zasjakuje gorzkoscia co jest pewnie zasluga zyta dodanego do brzeczki.Cytrusy chmiele ...niezle.

Acid303 (659) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAR 31, 2016
33cl can, served in shaker. Pours transparent amber with small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, herbs and fruits. Taste is pretty much the same, definitely more malty than hoppy. The bitterness is too weak. Light/medium body, soft carbonation. Simple and boring, very little can be said about this one.

PapaVillum (834) - Valby, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2016
Cognacfarvet IPA med lille offwhite skumtop på 1/2 cm, som svinder til kant og overflade. Klar/filtreret, rolig og ganske attraktiv. Aromaen præget af humlenoter såsom gran og harpiks. Maltaroma af kiks. Smagen er overvejende bitter med forsvindende lille sødme. Ganske bitter afslutning i svælget. Smagen er citrus-præget og desværre lettere ubalanceret i slutbilledet med en lidt kedelig beskhed. Ikke blød mundfølelse, men frisk og skarp. Mellem fyldig krop med en karbonering på et middel niveau. Afslutningen er kort og besk. Overall: Ikke dårlig, men ej heller specielt charmerende. Somehow plain and simple! 330 ml, dåse, 5.0 % ABV, BB: 30/06/16, købt i Systembolaget ved Triangel i Malmø. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 Boks. Mørk gylden farge. Moderat karbonert med hvit skumtopp. Smaker furunål,gress, brød,karamell. En ganske kjedelig ipa egentlig

Bottle. Can that pored with a massive head that took time to dissipate. Slightly hoppy flavour that is not that pleasant. Think this brewery can do a lot better. Bit of a let down.
