Kees Bubberman enjoys making beers that are a little bit different. The former brewmaster of the Emelisse brewery, he left to start his own brewery early in 2015.
He describes himself as a ‘creative’, always looking to design a new recipe, and make something interesting and fun. So it is no surprise that his double IPA has a little something extra.
The Double Rye IPA pours a hazy dark orange, with a thin head. The hop assault is powered by generous additions of Citra, Simcoe and Cascade, producing an inviting aroma.
The rye provides a nice spiciness balancing the tropical and citrus fruit sweetness. For a big beer, the body is quite light with a constant bitterness holding through and into the aftertaste.
