To quote the brewers, “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 juicy American hops, using old pool balls to weigh the hop sack down in the beer. Hence the name.” Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 11/04/2016

Appearance

(sample best before 20/Jul/16) Cloudy, orange-brown (mud-like) with thin but reasonably retentive beige head leaving thick spotted lacing.

Aroma

Pronounced pink grapefruit zesty hops, caramel, currant bun and brown bread with fresh ripe mango and pine resin.

Taste

Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Rye bread malt overlaid with assertive piney, citrusy and grassy hops. Some delicate floral notes.

Aftertaste

Lingering rye bready notes with accompanying pine and citrus hop bitterness.

Overall

Brown bready malts hold their own against a powerful hop collation in this well-balanced, unusual IPA with assertive but not domineering hops.
