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.

330ml Bottle. Gold tinted amber colour, thin, well laced off white head. Strong floral aromas with notes of pine and citrus. Light boddied, tart grapefruit bitterness with lots of pine, balanced with a good malt backbone. Very light, but enjoyable.

Love the strong hop taste. Almost brown in colour. Once tongue adjusts to taste, other beers taste too mild.

0,33 l bottle, Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
Clear deep golden ale with a small white head that went away fast. Fruity aroma withe, resin and pine, sime yeast. A bit watery palate, fine carbonation with nice hoppy character Resin, grape and grape seeds, juniper. Fine, need a bit more body.

Bathory (458) - Kverneland, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2014
Pours a hazy amber colour with a soapy white head. Strong aroma of passionfruit, some citrus, grass and pine. Taste is adds som more caramel aswell. Finish is a bitt too bitter for me, not enough malts to cope with the hops. Medium body and a bit soapy mouthfeel as a result of a bit too much carbonation. Okey, but with some issues.

Oakes (17158) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
Little bit earthy, some floral hop is sweet. Earthy and a light phenolic character. Not much hop but ok pale.

Supertrev (102) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2013
light golden brown. Mine didn't show head retention. Aroma is mild but has a big bite initially. Can't comment on palate because my tongue is numb from too many previous IPAs. But it seems nice enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
