COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tasting notes and ingredients Weve used lots of hops from North America Columbus, Centennial, Cascade, Amarillo and Citra because we just love the delicious, big, bold, citrus and pine flavours and aromas they bring to the beer. To balance out all this hoppy goodness weve added Rye, plus some Pale Ale and Cara Malt, to imbue sweetness, body and balance as well as some lovely subtle toffee flavours. Want to know more? The recipe for our Rye IPA was created by Adnams brewer (and certified hop freak) Belinda, who was excited to be able to let her passion for American craft beers shine through in this flavoursome brew. Jack Brand Rye IPA is available for a limited time in 30L kegs in selected outlets. Food Matches Pair our Rye IPA with spicy Mexican dishes or hot Caribbean flavours.

PunkBunny (59) - Benoni, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 2, 2017
Pours Amber clear. Low carbonation. White fine head. Smells of pine, resin, strong caramel toffee diacetyl. Strong caramel toffee diacetyl taste, some spice from the rye, bit of citrus grapefruit. Low to medium bitterness for an IPA. Overall: too much emphasis on the cara malts, that shadows the rye and hops. Bitterness could be higher.

Antzrhere (178) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2016
Looks nice enough, smells OK (not memorable) but doesnt really deliver on the flavour. Quite dry finish with not much else going on. The hops used in this beer are some of my favourite and headline some of the worlds greatest beers, but here they do very little other than impart a generic hop taste and alot of dry bitterness. The malt takes a back seat given this is a rye IPA. OK but rather dry and uninspiring
