Molly Rose Rye of the Tiger & Wink Wink

Style
Rye IPA & American Amber
ABV
6.8% & 4.9%

Molly Rose’s new restaurant has been getting plenty of attention for its food, drink and absolutely everything else but the brewers haven’t let cool weather pass them by without some toasty and malt-led beers.

Rye of the Tiger is a rye IPA featuring an heirloom variety of that grain and with quite an orange hue, it looks like a bit of an heirloom IPA too. With a slight chewiness and soft caramel note, it’s certainly a more malt-led IPA than you often find in this day and age but the hop flavours bring it into more modern territory. Largely, that's in the shape of blackberry with a touch of raspberry (which I guess means it’s more loganberry) while that berry note and the citrus combine with the rich undertones to create a jammy and toasty affair.

On the (slightly) darker side is Wink Wink, an American-hopped amber ale. One of life's great pleasures surely has to be drinking a pint in a pub by an open fire and this is a beer that would suit that moment wonderfully. The malt brings chocolate, biscuit and brioche while the hops offer up a fresher touch to those rich notes with a mix of grapefruit and tropical fruit bowl courtesy of Mosaic Cryo hops.
