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.

From tap, half-pint, drunk in a cosy atmosphere at the splendid Craft Beer Co, Islington. Dark apricot coloured body. Spotty lacing to the glassware. Prominent aroma of citrus shells. Succulent taste character offering a mix of fresh and dried fruits added by lighter notes of spices. Lingering bitter ending. Well balanced. Brit IPA at its best (London, 26.11.2012).

PotjeBier (2029) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2015
Tap @ In De Wildeman, sample size. Hazy, amber color. Frothy off white head with good retention. Aroma’s: hop, notably resinous, but also some citrus. Retronasal it’s somewhat sweet, fruit, resin, ryebread. Bitter flavor with light rye sweetness. Medium bodied, relatively full. Finish is earthy bitter, long lasting. Beavertown does it again!

Beczka. Barwa złota, mętna. Piana biała drobna, ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromatem nie zachwyca. W smaku zdecydowanie lepiej. Goryczka konkretna, wytrawna i niezalegająca. Brak nagazowania. Na polskim rynku można trafić zdecydowanie lepsze.

Beer as a whole is quite good. Aroma is not so well as i thought, but beer looks amazing -perfect colour and froath. Nice citrus palace with dominance of mango.For someone whose looking for decent Rye ipa this is your best shot.

Can sampled with the family while in Dublin @ the Black Sheep. Pours a light amber body with thick off white lacing. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of spicy, funky bright tropical hop. Fresh pine notes on the palate as well. Nice stuff.

A big, clear, amber beer. Thick head, malty and delicious. Sweetish with a nice spicy aroma. Tried with Rene at the Uiltje in 2015.
