8 Ball - Big, Bold & Ballsy
One of our earliest recipes, we wanted to push this big IPA all the way. So we packed it full of Rye and dry hopped it for days with American hops, using old pool balls to weigh the hop sack down in the beer. Hence the name.

Go ahead and sink a few, be rude not to really.

Can from Raynvile store, Leeds. Lovey aroma of the hops, pours dark amber - looks the part. Tastes bold and hoppy, very distinctive and another impressive offering from this brewery.

13/20 the rye spoils what tastes like a good IPA. Dont like the maltiness. Still drinkable but why would I drink this when I could drink lupoloid?

Defreni (3081) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2016
Dse. Ravfarvet l med et flot skumhoved. Hrd humle i duften med en del citrus. Smagen er domineret af rug og bitterhumle. For meget til min smag.

Kopparfrgad disig med vit skum. Doftar och smakar tropisk frukt och kanske lite rg. Fyllig med bra beska! Riktigt bra!
