Our latest Rare Breed has been dedicated to the hero of one of our favourite video games, Street Fighter’s Ryu.
Ryu means ‘plentiful and abundant’ and this is exactly how we would describe the hops in this brew.
In addition to Amarillo and Calypso pellets, we used Simcoe Lupulin and Ekuanot Lupulin. Lupulin powders are extra concentrated and oozing with highly resinous natural oils, resulting in a dense hop flavour and a strong, balanced bitterness.
This hop intensity is immediately apparent in the aroma, with pine, tropical and stone fruit notes coming to the front.
The final beer is medium bodied, with spicy notes and a coating mouthfeel from the Gladfield Rye malt.
Launching Wednesday 21st March at the Goat Bar, this beer will be available nationally from Friday 23rd March with the full stockist list available soon.
