8 Ball - Big, Bold & Ballsy
One of our earliest recipes, we wanted to push this big IPA all the way. So we packed it full of Rye and dry hopped it for days with American hops, using old pool balls to weigh the hop sack down in the beer. Hence the name.

Go ahead and sink a few, be rude not to really.

Damn this is one taste IPA. It pours a slightly brown/hazy color and has the most brilliant combination of hops. It has the most amazing bitter. I love it!

skortila (4829) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2015
On tap @ DeRat, Utrecht. The aroma has rye, some caramel, light pine, citrus. Bit hazy, orange-brown coloured beer with a medium, off-white head. The taste is ligh-moderate bitter, has some sweetness, refreshing. Above average body for an IPA, due to rye in malt bill. Nice tasty beer.

Trettiotre centiliter kan vara skillnaden mellan ett rikt och ett fattigt liv. Pengar är världsliga ting och giltiga endast inom vissa parametrar, som är högst manipulerbara, och kan därmed förvandlas till Monopol-sedlar om institutionerna fallerar. Beavertown 8 Ball förlorar inte sitt värde - eller sin bornyr - bara för att någon har glömt att smörja kugghjulen i tillväxtmotorn. Några lådor av det här ölet i garaget är den bästa valutareserven man kan ha. Dessutom drickbar, ifall att läget skulle bli så prekärt att överlevnaden står på spel. En guldtacka ska vara svårsmält har jag hört.
