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.

Holmen1 (2485) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2013
Fra fat på CBC mai-13: Mye tropisk aroma takket være Galaxy, Citra og Motueka-humlene, men helhetsinntrykket er allikevel at dette er en enkel øl.

mcberko (6516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
On tap at CBC, pours a clear orange with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of tons of oranges, lots of caramel malts, and loads of dry hops. Flavour brings out loads of oranges, dry citrusy hops, and dry caramel malts. Very fruity and dry, but without much complexity. Decent stuff, but pretty amateur stuff. Not so impressive.

Lurks on the red side of amber (which I love). An off-white head sits on top with a touch of sparkle. The aroma suggests plentiful dry-hopping: arms loads of spruce and amber resin, red bark and some orange apple flavours (like Cox’s - which I just can’t help but imagine whenever Motueka hops are involved). There is plentiful mouthfeel and just lush amber malt, spruce and resinous bitterness characters all over. This is everything that IPA hounds love about a new world IPA. It is forthright and full of brash character. It is brassy and endearing and happily invites you for seconds. Big like from me.
