Albino Squid Assassin
ALBINO SQUID ASSASSIN
RED RYE IPA
Albino Squid Assassin was originally brewed in 2015 as one of our Wildcard beers and has become one of the most requested beers to rebrew. So for a special occasion, our first Metro Mayhem, we've listened to the beer geeks of the world and have brought this assassin back.
This tentacled terminator packs a punch - ten punches to be precise. Each hop addition adds to the intense layers of depth in this red rye IPA. Toasty caramel & cinder toffee from crystal malts, cacao richness from intensely roasted malt and the spiciness of rye. Zesty pithiness from Citra and the robust resin of Chinook hops. This small batch brew is up-front intensity matched with twisted complexity.
The can features awesome custom art from Joe Wilson.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Red Rye IPA
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Carafa, Crystal, Dark Crystal, Extra Pale, Rye
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Chinook, Citra, Magnum
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
