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.

Bottle at eikan pub, järvenpää. Clear copper brown color, small white head. Nice fresh malty aroma with hops. Malty body with big dry hops, fruity, dry long finish, also quite high co2.

Leighton (13032) - 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.

jesperhammer (3249) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2013
22-OCT-2013, bottle @home, from Mikkeller & Friends. Quite cheap. Clearly marked down. Why? Too old, perhaps? Dark, dark golden or rather amber with with lasting tan head. Aroma is clearly dryhopped with grassy notes. But also tired madeira elements on a very malty body. Taste is very malty and sweet.. Grassy, grape fruit. Touch of pine. Very bitter. Very citrus driven hops. Above average body, medium carbonation. Would have loved this when fresh, I am sure:-)

rosenbergh (7787) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2013
330 ml bottle. Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland.
Clear deep golden amber colour with a small white head. Fruity and piney hops, sweet caramel and mild bitterness in the aroma. Very sweet candy hops, mi bitterness and sweet malt in the flavour. Not very tasty. Too much caramel & candy.

Defreni (2724) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2013
Flaske: Gul uklar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er mærkelig urtet med en smule malt. Smagen er også urtet på den rigtig ufede måde. Drikbar øl men bestemt ikke nogen nydelse.

Very good and balanced India pale ale, quite easy to drink anyway. Not very memorable but absolutely enjoyable.

Tide (2006) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle at Black Door. Dark amber color, white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, hops, mango, resin and a bit of caramel. Bitter finish with grapefruit and resin. Good, enjoyable IPA.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2013
Bit too sweet and malty, decent piney aroma. Dark amber, bit sticky after a while. Quite floral and bitter, not much citrus.

grainmerchant (11) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 3, 2013
a malt driven IPA that lacks much hop aroma and flavour. It is like it was there and it has been baked out. The only bottles I have had have been fairly oxidised and not the freshest. A IPA that tastes much better than the US aged imports but not Australia’s finest. Malt sweetness, low hop aroma and bitterness prevail
