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.

A nice deep amber with a light creamy head that clings to the glass in a delicate lace. The aroma is citrus, grapefruit and some pine. Taste is aged hops with a solid malt backbone, citrus, medium body and a nice pine resin after taste.

Like the malt flavour coming through. Didnt get the citris taste that others claim like a sierra Nevada.

Clear copper color, small off-white head. Resiny hoppy aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Piney, resiny hoppy. Perhaps some citrus, doesnt feel very fresh.

Leighton (20826) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Day 2, Session 1. Cascade and Galaxy version, evidently. Pours clear, deep gold with a clinging light beige cream head. The nose has decent citrus presence, orange and grapefruit, faint pine. Medium sweet flavor with slightly aged hops, tangerine. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Light pine resins to finish with sugary citrus and bready malts. Fair.

jesperhammer (4707) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2013
22-OCT-2013, bottle @home, from Mikkeller & Friends. Quite cheap. Clearly marked down. Why? Too old, perhaps? Dark, dark golden or rather amber with with lasting tan head. Aroma is clearly dryhopped with grassy notes. But also tired madeira elements on a very malty body. Taste is very malty and sweet.. Grassy, grape fruit. Touch of pine. Very bitter. Very citrus driven hops. Above average body, medium carbonation. Would have loved this when fresh, I am sure:-)

rosenbergh (11475) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2013
330 ml bottle. Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland.
Clear deep golden amber colour with a small white head. Fruity and piney hops, sweet caramel and mild bitterness in the aroma. Very sweet candy hops, mi bitterness and sweet malt in the flavour. Not very tasty. Too much caramel & candy.

Defreni (3143) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2013
Flaske: Gul uklar l med et fint skumhoved. Duften er mrkelig urtet med en smule malt. Smagen er ogs urtet p den rigtig ufede mde. Drikbar l men bestemt ikke nogen nydelse.

Very good and balanced India pale ale, quite easy to drink anyway. Not very memorable but absolutely enjoyable.
