RACK ‘EM UP Series: #5 Orange Ball Fruity Pale Ale with Athgarrett Malt

The RACK ‘EM UP Series from Eight Degrees Brewing #5 Orange Ball Fruity Pale Ale with Athgarrett Malt Eight Degrees is turning eight this year. To celebrate eight years of brewing, we are producing eight exciting and innov8ing beers throughout 2019. These eight unique beers will form part of our exciting and colourful RACK EM’ UP series. Eight Years. Eight Beers. Eight Collabs. Summertime at Eight Degrees means one thing…Hawaiian shirts! To stay refreshed in the tropical heat, we needed to brew something juicy. We turned to the experts at Athgarrett Malt, Ireland’s newest maltsters. They provided the wheat and oats which we brewed into a silky, sessionable pale ale, topped off with passion fruit, blood orange and a squeeze of guava for good measure. The Hawaiians call this POG…to us it’s PÓG, a juicy, wet sunshiny smooch! Goes especially well with loud, colourful, print shirts. Style: Fruity Pale Ale Malt: Two-row malted Irish barley, Athgarrett oats, Athgarrett wheat.  Hops: Mandarina Bavaria, Amarillo. ABV: 3.9 IBUs: 42 Tasting notes Colour/appearance: distinctly orange with a bouncy white head. Aroma: full on fruit aroma with passion fruit dominating, underpinned by blood orange. Flavour: the fruitiness on the nose continues through to the palate, with zesty blood orange marmalade to the fore, followed by sweet passion fruit and a further level of tropical complexity from the guava and citrusy Mandarina Bavaria hops. There’s a solid pithy bitterness coming through, followed by a smoothness from the Athgarrett oat addition. It’s a sessionable breakfast juice of a beer. Aftertaste: orange bitterness with a biscuity finish. Food Pairings With Irish oats, wheat and barley plus passion fruit, blood orange and guava, this is a beer that sounds like the best summertime muesli-in-a-glass that you’ve ever had. Not that we’d be having it for breakfast now. No, we’ll wait until

Now in cans: Seisiún IPA

Coming in cans this week, it’s our Seisíun IPA! It’s a crisp and refreshing beer with lots of aromatic hops, all packed into a sessionable 4.5% ABV. From the label: Woven deep into the fabric of Irish society and tradition is the seisiún, an informal coming together of people in a pub – over a beer – to play music, tell stories and enjoy each other’s company. For the best kind of seisiún, you need a low-alcohol beer, something that has lots of flavour but is not too high in ABV. Our Seisiún IPA, a sessionable India Pale Ale, takes lots of aromatic hops and packs them into a crisp and refreshing beer that’s just 4.5% ABV. Grab a can and enjoy the craic. Tasting notes: Seisiún IPA
