COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Mildly hazy gold - amber beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and crispy. Very light malts, mild sweetness. A little floralness and the mild orange peel and spice. Whisper of lemon. Light finish. Slightly herby - floral bitter linger. Thin but clean.

Bottle at home. Poured an dark golden colour with a white head. Notes of sweet caramel malts, citrus, cooked hops, parfum, malts, wet cardboard. Off weird taste, resin. Weird aftertaste. Not good

BlackHaddock (4863) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
16th May 2015: 650ml bottle into a Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip (twice). Orange hue to the amber pour, hazy body with a thin wispy head. Hop lead to the nose, with a malty aroma arriving as the beer warmed a little in the glass. Taste similar, all hop bitterness, then a malty semi-sweetness before the hops kick in again for a bitter finish.

On tap at the source. Pours a slightly hazy light Amber with a thin white head. Slightly malty with some caramel. Flavor has slight hoppiness but not really an IPA. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very easy IPA to drink. Easier than a lot of Pale Ales. Drinking it out of the bottle poured into a glass. Very light and refreshing. It is something you could drink all day.

On draft. Everything here is muted and indistinct, so much so that I suspect a tap line issue or something. Basically liquid cardboard.

Pours orange with a short head. Good retention, solid lace. Floral, orange citrus and rye malt aroma. Mild sweet attack followed by substantial bitterness. Light medium body and a long, dry, bitter finish. Well made.
