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.

W aromacie rześko, iglaki i tropiki, zboże, żytnia ziemistość. W smaku podobnie, półpełne, żytnie, iglaki, mniej tropików i cytrusów. Fajnie pijalne, gładkie, porządne piwo.

@ Stordirren 16-4-19: Stora toner av rĺg med balanserad maltighet. Ingen humlekäftsmäll men en lite tyngre, kornaktig sak.

anstei (874) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 18, 2016
Can from Beers’n’more. A fat an healthy heavy IPA with indeed some rye character. It falls off behind the dense aroma and taste, but is still noticeable. Lots of residual sweetness next to some tropical fruits and a healthy carbonation. Very nice!

Sebilinz (1535) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAR 26, 2016
Can. Orange body with white head. Aroma is very fruity mostly peaches and tropical fruits with some malts in the background. Taste is nearly the same but with more peaches than tropical fruits, pines and some caramel and herbs with hints of pepper. Aftertaste is nice bitter balanced with some fruity malty sweetness. Very nice one and I am surprised how nice this is as its one month before BB. Will rerate this a little bit fresher.
