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.

humlelala (1046) - DENMARK - SEP 22, 2011
(sampled at Papsø’s) Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with little, off-white head and lace. The aroma is pleasantly hopified - with notes of citrus fruits. Medium carbonation, full-bodied, oily texture and a lingering, bitter finish. The taste is bitter with some malty notes.

Ungstrup (29949) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2011
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin lazing orangey head. The aroma has notes of peaches and citrus fruits on a caramel back drop. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and over ripe fruits, leading to a bitter finish. Not a lot of hops for an IPA.

Papsoe (25079) - Lyserødovre, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2011
Bottle 64 cl. Courtesy of bluebetty. Pours a hazy golden with a lacing off-white head. Sweet citrusy hop aroma. Medium body, sweet fruitiness, dry citrusy hoppiness and an almost astringent finish. Well made - clearly not an American or a British IPA - this is something different, but in a good way. 180911

bmeup (536) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2011
Good looking amber orange under a tight compact 5mm tan head. Sweet fruit aroma with some citrus and pine. Flavour is sweet and malty then dry hops after. It’s weighted to the malty side with a good body, carbonation and quite smooth. Has a lengthy bitter finish. Pretty good for me.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle. ANOTHER Aussie IPA scared to forgo the big malt base. Who’s afraid of the big bad hop? Still, better than when they had their regular IPA. Big tawny malt caramel body with whiffs of citrus and pine emanating off the loch. Full bodied for 5.7%. Could be so much more, but survives as a decent American PALE ALE. Cut down on the crystal malt over reliance please guys.
