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.

Citrus and resinous hops. Candied sweet malt rounds out the bitterness and extends tot he finish. medium bodied. Not a powerhouse, just a well made IPA.

Scopey (12720) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, KL. It pours ambers with a small white head. The nose is orange sponge cake, stewed citrus, earth, resin and pine needles. The taste is crisp, bitter, orange peel, grapefruit, pine needles, resin, light soap and mild alcohol with a lingering dry-bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Solid IPA.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2014
It’s refreshing to have an American IPA that’s not loaded with cascade hops. Pours a beautiful red amber with a creamy beige head. Slightly cloudy excellent sweet fruit aroma, some citrus, apricot and pine. Super malty backbone, yet somehow it doesn’t feel heavy. Caramel flavours that balance very well with the fruit. I could drink many of these.

Westkyoto77 (623) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 17, 2014
Draught at brewery. Inviting nose of floral and crystal malt hops. Turgid dark amber, with solid-looking head. Light-medium body, with fine carbonation. Rather delicate and smooth, with flavours of passionfruit and caramel. Quite hoppy and funky, and really enjoyable.
