COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a Hop Driven, Malty Ale with a strong bitterness thanks to a good dose of Citra and Galaxy hops. Its a tough nut, but loveable all the same.

Those of you that loiter in bottleshops in your spare time will probably have noticed that our Rare Breed IPA is no longer a Rare Breed. She’s become an all-grown-up fully-fledged member of the permanent range. …And like the doting parents we are, we’re super proud of her. She still has the same big tropical hop aroma – we dry-hop using Galaxy (Tas), Citra (USA) and Motueka (NZ), and full malty body (Ale malt, Wheat and Crystal malts). Specs are: 6.2% abv, 65 BU…one for hopheads and beer nerds everywhere.

Bottled
Pours a hazy amber colour. Head is large and thick. Aroma is pine, tropical fruit and soap. Flavour is resiny pine, wood and grapefruit. Long and big bitterness. Mouth feel might be a bit on the thin side but it’s still a pretty good IPA.

mzaar (1565) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2012
Brunorange, lätt grumlig öl, med ett gräddigt vitt skum. Melon, kiwi och blommor i aromen, men där finns också något av fadd doft, som en jordkällare. Härliga smaker av grape, apelsin, russin och tallbarr. En trevlig IPA.

rarbring (1339) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2012
Aroma: Smelling of pine, resin, needles and bitter grape-fruit.
Appearance: A clouded amber brew with an off-white head leaving little lacing but good curtains.
Taste: Sweet bread, toffee, pine soap, citric juices and peels.
Palate: Medium carbonation, fresh texture, medium low body, a slightly dry finish.
Overall: Very much in the smell, a bit short in the body. But not bad ...
Note: Bottle 650 ml. Reviewed 2012-10-13.

Big offwhite head. Clear amber body with strong carbonation. Fruity metallic toffee aroma with perfumy earthy raisiny notes. Unusual aroma. Dry-sweet vinous pineapple taste with earthy resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish burnt caramel and resin aftertaste with tropical fruit and gooseberry notes. Interesting and drinkable. Quite refreshing, too.
