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.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2014
Pours a hazy amber colour with a soapy white head. Strong aroma of passionfruit, some citrus, grass and pine. Taste is adds som more caramel aswell. Finish is a bitt too bitter for me, not enough malts to cope with the hops. Medium body and a bit soapy mouthfeel as a result of a bit too much carbonation. Okey, but with some issues.

Little bit earthy, some floral hop is sweet. Earthy and a light phenolic character. Not much hop but ok pale.

light golden brown. Mine didn't show head retention. Aroma is mild but has a big bite initially. Can't comment on palate because my tongue is numb from too many previous IPAs. But it seems nice enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear amber pour, minimal head. Nice citrus aroma, with taste being mostly hoppy. Undertones of citrus. Good IPA.

A nice deep amber with a light creamy head that clings to the glass in a delicate lace. The aroma is citrus, grapefruit and some pine. Taste is aged hops with a solid malt backbone, citrus, medium body and a nice pine resin after taste.

Like the malt flavour coming through. Didn’t get the citris taste that others claim like a sierra Nevada.

Clear copper color, small off-white head. Resiny hoppy aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Piney, resiny hoppy. Perhaps some citrus, doesn’t feel very fresh.

Leighton (12232) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Day 2, Session 1. Cascade and Galaxy version, evidently. Pours clear, deep gold with a clinging light beige cream head. The nose has decent citrus presence, orange and grapefruit, faint pine. Medium sweet flavor with slightly aged hops, tangerine. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Light pine resins to finish with sugary citrus and bready malts. Fair.
