Brouwerij Kees Double Rye IPA (8.5%)

Double Rye IPAYum yum yum yum yum yum yum (To the tune of Robyn Hitchcock’s “The Yip Song”).

I still love Rye Beer more than almost anything, and this one’s an absolute doozy.
It pours a rich Amber with a little fuzzy head and smells of toffee and wood sheds.
There’s a thick and gloopy malt that gives you a big round toffee and waffle body, lots of honey and then a great big earthy, woody, deep rye richness moves in and, backed by a boozy warmth, makes the beer feel not just big, but enormous.
The hops – Simcoe and Summit – add a sherbet coated slap of bitter green herbal leaves, hedgerow and zingy lemon zest which makes for a superbly bitter dry finish.
The only weird thing is that the ingredients lists everything but the Rye.

    Kees Bubberman is a gifted brewer – I’ve yet to have a bad beer from him, from either his days when he was head brewer at Emelisse or now he’s struck out on his own.
