A new brew created for this weekend's second Australian National Homebrewing Conference, sneak peeks of this Rye IPA (India Pale Ale) will be on offer at tonight's Goat tasting (Oct 28) at the Terminus Hotel in Clifton Hill / North Fitzroy. The beer uses the same recipe as the brewery's normal IPA but with 20% rye malt added. According to head brewer Jayne Lewis, the result is an added "smoothness and roundness to the palate while all the usual IPA goodness remains. We also used wheat and crystal malts for body and a biscuity character and it's hopped with Citra and Galaxy to give tropical and citrus aroma and flavour. It's bitter, hoppy, malty. Good" See the EVENTS page for info on the Terminus tasting.
