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.

Bottle. Pours clear deep amber orange with big bubbled off white head. Aromas of citrus, piney grass and light caramel malts. Medium light body, big carbonation, generous bitterness and hop flavour. Zesty finish, citrus and grass a touch veg, but quite appreciable.

640ml bottle. Pours clear orange amber with big rocky off white head. Nice aromatic malt, caramel toffee, citrus and a light grassy pine passionfruit. Light-medium body, spicy malt character and moderate zesty bitterness with a lively carbonation. A lingering malty sweet spiciness works with a lingering hop bitterness and a touch of wheat malt character. Ok, but not as good as expected.

Scopey (6315) - 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 (272) - 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 (503) - 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.
