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.

Starker Honig-Geruch. Je wärmer das Bier, umso stärker die Süsse. Trotzdem sehr ausgewogen und spannend im Geschmack.

Thomatito (132) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2017
0,3l can. Nose: hop bomb; mango, pineapple, floral, slight pine. Taste: slight spice, tropical juice notes. If taste would be as pungent as aroma, this would be even better than it already is.
