12 Acres Brewing Rye IPA (500ml) €3.49
Brewed in Co. Laois.
12 Acres Rye IPA is a speciality hybrid beer combining a full flavoured American style IPA with the spicy characteristics of a traditional Rye Ale. A burnished gold/red-gold colour, the aromas showcase classic North American hop flavour – grapefruit and citrusy fruit flavour with a touch of pine. Distinct spicy rye character is evident in the first sip, and this combines with the hop fruit flavour in the beer. The mouth-feel gives a medium body lusciousness, which supports the spice of the malted rye in the beer. A very well balanced, spice, malt sweetness, and fruit body, all integrate to deliver a range of complex full flavours. Pairs very well with roasted and barbecued meats.

Subtle yet familiar flavours of vanilla and oak are imparted to this special ale as it rests in the charred barrels.

This is a refreshing blonde ale generously hopped to give bitterness and aroma that packs a punch! This blonde ale is not a bland ale, there is a complexity at play here with a fruity aroma balanced by a hoppiness that makes it a slightly challenging but stilll quite easy to drink beer.
Helvick is a great summer’s day drink, perfect for cracking out at the BBQ. It’s an excellent beer to pair with food and works particularly well with spicy food.
