Jacaranda is the flagship beer of Claremont Craft Ales. This wonderfully balanced beer appeals to drinkers of all stripes thanks to the complex malt character of the rye. The copious amounts of Centennial hops balance perfectly with the spiciness and pepperiness of the rye malt. 6.7% ABV, 64 IBU, 11 SRM

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Sampler at the brewery. Pours a dark clear amber with a one finger off-white head. The nose is caramel malt, floral hops and light grapefruit. The taste is caramel malt, ripe citrus, light peppery spice and a nice resin finish that lingers for a bit. Medium semi-creamy mouthfeel. Nice serviceable IPA. I didnt detect any diacetyl and was there the night before the rater below so not sure what hes talking about. Great place to visit and the people and beer are top-notch.

DenverLogan (1100) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2016
On tap at the brewery April 3rd. As a rye IPA it fit in that flavor category with a touch more citrus that expected, but no problems. Id happily take a growler home.

Nuffield (4083) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2016
I was really struck by how fruity this beer was, and how sweet, too. The flavor has a lot of non-citrus fruits (peach, e.g.) and the bitterness was quite low. Still well balanced and easy drinking, it paired well with my food (a mushroom risotto). Very good. (on tap at Tutti Mangia, Claremont, CA)

Orange/gold with a bright white head with a two-finger frothy head and lots of lacing. Aromas of grapefruit and orange with hints of pine resin, spice and malt. Citrus hops up front, followed by resinous pine, rye, and toasted malt. Full body, brightly effervescent, creamy mouthfeel and a crisp dry finish.
