Our latest addition to our year-round lineup. For you hop heads out there, you have to try this! This American style IPA made with rye grain tops the charts at over 85 IBU (that’s a lot of bitter!). It’s starts with floral hop notes a big malty body hinting at the underlying rye grain and finishes with a nice clean bitterness.

Bottled. Hazy amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is toffee, some mild rye, fruitiness and a bit resiny and wooden notes. Flavour is quite strong on the floral bitterness, but also got some rye, mild toasted notes as well as some nectar to it. Nice bitter long aftertaste.

olio (9373) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2016
355 ml bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Malty and somewhat grainy aroma, very subtle resin notes, some orange and mild hops. Grainy and dry malty flavor, not much fruits here, mild oily hop notes, some bitterness. Usually Rye IPAs are too malty and grainy for my taste and so is this.
