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.

Ungstrup (29474) - 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 (25085) - Frederiksberg, 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
