As for The People’s Pint itself, the Double Hoptendre is a “Double Hopped Rye Red Ale” that is expected to register around 6.2%. In the end, the “Double” and “Hop” translated into the use of two hops throughout (Styrian Golding and First Gold) plus plans for some hefty “double dry-hopping” with them. Both hops have a spicy as well as floral character too, which accounts in part for the “spicy”, while the fact that a whopping 15kg of them will be used covers off “flamboyantly hopped”. The spiciness is also catered for by the use of rye malt; except there’s not just one rye malt – Ron has used four different varieties, including German and American malted rye and caramel rye. Between them they should help account for the “big flavours”.
A woman walked into a bar and ordered a Double Hoptendre. So the bartender gave it to her… This is a spicy, flamboyantly hopped, cheeky beer, not afraid of making a statement, big flavours but enough subtlety to be acceptable for all occasions; it speaks its mind without offending anyone.

Pours copper with a large, off-white head.
Nose shows piny and grapefruit hops, spicy rye and creamy nutty malt. Lots of creamy nutty malt!
Similar flavours. Lots of spicy rye and darker malt. Pine and grapefruit enter afterwards along with an assertive bitterness to balance things out.
Lovely creamy body.

Tap at Mane Liquor. Pours red amber with a small, dense off white head. Nose is very spicey and earthy. Light floral hops behind a solid toffee backing. Sweet floral tones and earthy hops come through. Spice plays a big role in this but never overpowers the beer at all. Rather easy drinking. A soft lingering bitterness to compliment the beer. Super sessionable. Good stuff

Squealer. Pours deep mahogany with an off white head and a nice spicy/floral aroma with toffee notes. The flavour is very complex in this beer. I get the steely/spicy tang from the european hops and also a sweet earthy toffee note.Very interesting beer im loving it.
