COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rare Breed #4 is out and about. Now. It’s a Rye IPA, kinda same same but different to our regular IPA, but we use 20% malted rye in the grist in addition to malted barley. Rye gives a rich nuttiness to the mouthfeel that complements the big hit of galaxy and cascade hops that follows. On the nose it’s all fruity hops – tropical and zingy. The palate is full, bitter and rich – the rye helping out with this. It clocks in at 6.1%abv, 60BUs… Available at McCoppins, Slow Beer, Blackhearts & Sparrows and other discerning beery stores. Hope you like it!

Bottle from Parkhill cellars. Delicious IPA, very nicely hopped. Aromas of grain, caramel, cherries, grass, and liquorice. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length. Palate is velvety, almost creamy, with a medium-to-full body. Amber, with a frothy head.

Another great beer in the rare breed line up. So tasty and easy to drink. Even better when its fresh at the brewery itself! Nice dark poor, plenty of flavor which is well balanced between the hops and malt and I found even tastier and interesting with the addition of the rye. Found it smooth and easy to drink.

Brenhophead (547) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2012
Pours amber with a sweet passionfruit aroma and a nice off white head with wonderful lacing. The aroma flows through to the taste nice a nice earthy backing from the mix of rye malt. I was so surprised by this beer and i would have to say it is the best rye IPA i have ever had, i must get more! Bottle was labeled Mountain goat Rare breed rye ipa "Rippa" and its a single batch that i hope they do again in the near future.

maneliquor (3056) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 29, 2012
UPDATED: APR 26, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours bright amber with a small, fluffy white head. Head retention is pretty solid and leaves some spotty lacing. Nose is subtle spice, green hops and tropical/citric fruits. Sweet caramel backs the taste which is oozing with over ripe fruits - tangerine, peach, apricot. Lots of zest. Subtle, yet lingering bitterness with soft and prickly carbonation. Nice work, very good beer which showcases the rye very well

Davros (1893) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2012
Pours dark amber with a large, lasting head. Nose is pretyt fruity, with lots of peach, passion fruit and apricot. Underneath is spicy hints along with big caramel presence and toffee. Similar fruity flavours, but also showing a lot of malt, combining to create orange marmalade characters. Nice spicy, bready backing from the rye. Could use more carbonation. Lovely stuff!

Pyobon (908) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2012
(bottle) Poured cloudy amber with a big beige head. Wonderful hop aroma - floral and tropical fruity. Full bodied with excellent plentiful carbonation. The flavour strikes a lovely balance of interesting malts and hoppy bitterness. There’s tangy fruit at the start developing body and richness with a hint of spice leading to a good bitter finish. Overall an excellent and different beer giving an extra dimension to the typical hop-centred IPA.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. review done a while ago. Poured a clear amber with a large off-white head. Nose full of grapefruit, apricots and lychee. Tropical fruit bowl basically. Taste isnt as sweet as you’d think judging from the aroma. Grapefruit, stone and some tropical fruits backed by a breadish malt come through in the taste. Nice sharp bitter finish. great beer wish I could drink this again

MJGG (950) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
Bouteille de 640 ml. Arômes plutôt intenses de houblon fruité (oranges, pêches, melons). Robe orangée et trouble, légère dentelle et effervescence active. En bouche, le houblon très fruité et passablement aromatique domine. Le malt, velouté sans être sucré, apporte des notes franches de seigle. Finale sèche et moyennement amère. Excellent !
