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.

Rune (13353) - Tromsø, - DEC 7, 2012
From tap, half-pint, drunk in a cosy atmosphere at the splendid Craft Beer Co, Islington. Dark apricot coloured body. Spotty lacing to the glassware. Prominent aroma of citrus shells. Succulent taste character offering a mix of fresh and dried fruits added by lighter notes of spices. Lingering bitter ending. Well balanced. Brit IPA at its best (London, 26.11.2012).

Color ámbar, medianamente turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco algo sucio de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa y ligeramente chispeante. Aroma a fruta tropical, cítricos, malta caramelizada, centeno, con toques herbales. En boca buena fusión de fruta tropical y cítricos, con malta caramelizada muy presente, centeno y toques herbales. Amargor suave. Compleja, sabrosa y equilibrada.

A great smelling beer. Hints of tropical fruit, especially mango. Aftertaste is just OK, but the taste in your mouth will be amazing and very similar to its aroma. I would drink it every week if I could.

ozzatoadisback (199) - ITALY - SEP 26, 2017
Amber coloured with a bit of haziness. Big and quite dense head, shows good enough persistence and nice lacing. Nice but not especially bright aroma. Caramel malts, a moderate resinous/herbal tone, citric fruitiness, slight spiciness. Taste confirms the aroma. A caramel and slightly crackery base, citric fruitiness, slight spiciness, bitter resinous and slightly floral finish. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation, highly drinkable. Overall a nicely balanced and well crafted ipa.

33cl can purchased @ La caisse de bières. Belle robe orangée avec mousse aérée. Nez trèsagréable. En attaque on sent bien les céréales avec un côté pêche de vigne puis un final sur la résine. L'amertume est très bien dosée et vient parfaire l'équilibre de cette bière très agréable.

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