Hey, Trigger here. Let me be honest, I helped to brew this beer. This was a recipe I created a few years ago with the intent of having my own spicy drinking IPA at home. Well, after sitting on this recipe, last year Joe had mentioned he wanted to brew a rye beer. As a giggles, I showed him this. It was green lighted. While we did make the beer last year, the final product isn’t what I had imagined.
This year the discussion was to make this beer again. Stephen and I made a few tweaks from recipe to fermentation. The final product represents what I wanted. A drinkable beverage, with some citrus notes up front and a dry rye finish. To be Star Wars nerdy, it’s bittered with millennium hops, and flavored with Falconer’s Flight.
I want you all to drink it and tell me what you think. I can say I’m pretty proud of this particular beverage. Let me know what you think.
First of all, hello! My name is Jeffrey Trigger. I like to drink Maltese beer. About me, I am a beer lover of all styles, enjoy brewing at the homebrew level, and good conversation about beer. The folks at Maltese were kind enough to have me write about their beer. They did give me one caveat, and that was to write it so all could understand what I’m talking about. So you have it on my honor, I’ll write this to the best of my ability without sounding like a snob.
