This is a Hop Driven, Malty Ale with a strong bitterness thanks to a good dose of Citra and Galaxy hops. Its a tough nut, but loveable all the same.

Those of you that loiter in bottleshops in your spare time will probably have noticed that our Rare Breed IPA is no longer a Rare Breed. Shes become an all-grown-up fully-fledged member of the permanent range. And like the doting parents we are, were super proud of her. She still has the same big tropical hop aroma we dry-hop using Galaxy (Tas), Citra (USA) and Motueka (NZ), and full malty body (Ale malt, Wheat and Crystal malts). Specs are: 6.2% abv, 65 BUone for hopheads and beer nerds everywhere.

Lilja (3065) - Malm, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2012
Dofta gott av torkad frukt och smrkola. Smaken r snabb och abrupt och fljd av en torr beska.

Vignale (3600) - Malm, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2012
En mycket maltst doft med kola, knck och vermogen st frukt. Smaken r betydligt torrare och kroppen knns nrmast tunn i frhllande till den massiv maltdoften. Lite torr beska gr ocks att let blir lite astringent.

Peter_L (1246) - SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2012
Grddvitt skum dubbelfingertjockt. Frsta sniffen belnas med massvis med citrusarom. Omvxlande med avsaknad av granbarr och kda, vilket r s vanligt i de amerikanska kusinerna. Doften avrundas med en frsiktig maltstma samt svag alkoholdoft. Kraftig beska som sakta klingar av. Temperaturkinkig IPA. Lite fr kall framtrder en intetsgande beska som klingar av rekordsnabbt. Rtt serverad ligger en angenm beska kvar. Som sagt roligt med lite annan IPA n den amerikanska.

SaintMatty (7172) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 16, 2012
640ml Bottle - Hazy amber with a foamy head. Grapefruit, mango, toffee and dried apricot in the aroma. Tangy, hoppy, fruity and slightly sweet taste with notes of grapefruit, pine, raisins, peach and toffee. The finish is bitter, fruity and has a lingering sweetness. This beer has a lot of body for its strength. Enjoyable stuff.
