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.

Amber in colour, smooth in taste, nice evening wrap up if your not a big stout or dark beer fan. Always a crowd pleaser, goes well with reeses peanut butter

Hazy amber with an average head. Fruity nose, malty, grainy, lots of pine resin. Moderate to low sweet with a medium to high bitter finish. Average carbonation, soft mouthfeel, medium bodied. More resiny than fruity but well made.

Vignale (2718) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2015
Burk från Ales by mail. Relativt stiltypisk västkust IPA, mycket citrus, stor relativt söt kropp med karamell och rejäl beska. Mest karaktär av citrusmarmelad och kanske lite trött. Bra.

Rich taste with much bitterness which stays in your mouth for a long time. Overally very nice. Only why can?

MSBrindbergs (643) - Solna, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2015
Burk på Lilys Burger, Södermalm. Brungul dimmig vätska med svagt skum. Doftar malt och grövre humle. Bra råg och maltbas med en trevlig humlepunch. Kraftfull i eftersmaken. Fint som snus! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
