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.

Antzrhere (11) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2016
330ml can. Murky orange with good white head that lasts longer than your typical canned beer. Aroma of orange and pine. Medium to strong carbonation for style.Orange and pine flavours, hint of tropical fruit and a slightly spicy dry finish. Lingering Crackerbread after taste. Not quite as juicey as I would have liked, but enjoyable all the same

Beergaard (302) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2016
Beautiful murky color and a big off-white head. Not as much aroma as expected but some nice hoppy and herbal notes. Taste is spicey and moderately bitter.

malushky (42) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2016
330 ml can from Wanstead Tap. Pours hazy amber with lasting tanned head. Nice aroma of citrus, orange, resin and some grains, probably rye. Taste starts off specific, rasted grains, most likely from rye. Sweet and bitter, hint of grapefruit follows. Dry body, bit oily and heavy to drink, long finish. Decent beer.

ALIBALI (677) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
Fett fruchtig im Näschen, tropisch und auch schon ein bißchen getreidig süß. Der Trunk ebenfalls fruity und angenehm würzig. Im Nachtrunk kommt dann der Roggen am auffälligsten zum Tragen. Leicht, fast schmeichelnd säuerlich, brotig und rund bitter, all das läßt die Daumen hochschnellen. 0,33/4€.CAN. BEYOND BEER HH.

hub66 (389) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 20, 2016
couleur orange; mousse blanche; arômes et goût maltés, fruités et un peu épicé; finale moyennement amère et douce (j’aurais aimé un peu plus d’amertume)

Moebbels (714) - FINLAND - AUG 17, 2016
A hazy copper-colored body eith a light brown, well lasting fluffy head. Nose has aromas resin, caramel, mild citrus and a touch of rye. Taste is fairly sweet and caramelly with a strong, bitter finish. Lively carbonation and medium-full nouthfeel. Quite nice and balanced, could use a bit more aroma hopping.
