BrewDog Rye Hammer

Brewery: BrewDog
Country: Scotland
ABV: 7.2%
Style: Rye Beer

Brewer Description: (from can) Jack Hammer has been single handedly ripping it up for quite some time. Now, the definitive bitter and twisted IPA, has spawned four Hammer Head off-springs. Rye Hammer is the fourth of our super-charged hyped up hybrids. Rye and American hops unite in an agricultural superpower. A grapefruit harvest of citrus melts away to sticky roasted caramel and rye warmth, all resting on a malted backbone. Then the Hammer Head’s trademark bitter finish reasserts its authority. Catch the Rye Hammer – a bitter sweet protagonist.

Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 10th December 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A golden orange colour that is lightly hazy with lots of extremely fine floating sediment, a two finger white head that dissipates fairly quickly, but left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Orange, mandarin peel and grapefruit with hints of peach, pineapple, pine and malt.
Taste: Very bitter grapefruit, citrus rind and citrus peel followed by mild pineapple, peach and apricot. There was hints of caramel and the alcohol does come through at times. Finish was bittersweet, although definitely more bitter than sweet.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was ok, but a bit harsh through its bitterness and the alcohol that comes through.

Intro: A 330ml bottle, self described as a pale ale-ish, fruit rye ipa-ish beer, bottled on 10th March 2016, poured into a small water glass (all they had at the hotel).
Appearance: It poured a slightly hazy copper orange colour with a two finger beige head that had good retention and lacing.
Aroma: Sharp orange peel, pine and a hint of tropical pineapple.
Taste: Orange, orange peel, caramel malt and a touch of pine.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Easy to drink, but I’m not getting as much blood orange as I would have liked. Only noticed after drinking and looking carefully at the bottle that the ingredients appear to state that only the zest of the blood orange was used.
