Tempest Brewing Co. Marmalade On Rye (9%)

It’s only March and I may have already found my beer of the year, Marmalade on Rye is that good.
It’s a Double IPA brewed with rye, fresh oranges and ginger, and it’s more proof if more proof were needed of just how good Tempest are.
The beer sits a rich amber in my glass and smells of brown sugar and marmalade, and as I took my first sip I found a beer that feels as rich and deep and sexy as it looks.
The malting is round and warm and chewy, treacle tart and honey with a big meaty pumpernickel rye hit that sparkles with the gentle prickle of ginger.
The hopping works with the oranges to create a mouthful of marmalade, stinging nettles, steely herbal leaves and the fizz of sherbet lemons.
All of this is boosted by a deep boozy warmth that makes for a very sexy bitter sweet finish.
