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.

Bomber-ish bought @ Systembolaget. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish golden with a big frothy grayish white head that slowly dissipates while leaving a thick sticky trace on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet, fruity and hoppy with soap, passion fruit, pineapple, tree sap, mango, earl gray tea, grapefruit juice, green grapes, lemon peal, orange marmalade, dried apricots, nectarines, sawdust, resinous wood and orange peal. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, fruity with grapefruit juice, passion fruit, mango, soap, resinous wood, crackers, tree sap, orange peal, grapefruit peal, crackers, freshly cut grass, moist wood and hints of moist soil. Mouthfeel is soft, tiny watery, slightly astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with grapefruit juice, grapefruit peal, straw, tree sap, resinous wood and moist soil. Quite nice...

(Bottle) Pours hazy reddish amber with an sand coloured head. The aroma holds soap, orange/apricot marmalade and grapefruit juice with undertones of black tea, tart passion fruit, wood, herbs, flower nectar, honey, bread, light cookies and light caramel. Juicy, floral and spicy on the nose. The flavour is light sweet to dry, medium to heavily bitter and light acidic with grapefruit, bitter herbs, resinous wood, light fruits, crackers, honey and some bread. The mouthfeel is soft with an astringent finish. Medium carbonation. Tones of resin and grapefruit acid on the finish. Near medium bodied.

olsvammel (3552) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2012
Sample at a tasting. It poured a hazy golden liquid with a dirty white head. Fresh hop aroma with some citrus and tropical fruits. Similar taste with a noticeable but not overly aggressive bitterness.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle, 64cl. A big, off-white head forms over a slightly unclear golden body. The aroma is on the hoppy side, but a bit weak I think. Some malts in the back, but tropical fruits dominates. Some citrusy hints too. Soft maltyness on the palate, a bit thin I think, especially considering the ABV. Pleasant carbonation level. Citrus, generic fruityness and some bitterness in the flavor. Could certainly use more bitterness. Overall, a beer that could use a bit more of almost everything, but it’s a fine brew anyway. 120413

damoninja (3) - D, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012 does not count
What you would expect from an ipa, burnt orange in colour, malty some and sweet on the pallet. A nice drop.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2013 Tap at the grain store: limited nose, looks ok, reasonable flavour and palate but nothing special

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2012
Tasting at Papsø’s
Cloudy deep blond color. The aroma is a bit hop-fruity, and yeasty. Decent toffee flavor, quite dry, with strong bitterness and some hop resins, some bitter orange too; cardboard. Easy, messy.
