Whiplash is the passion project of Alex Lawes and Alan Wolfe. Alex was an award-winning home brewer before turning pro as head brewer with Rye River. Alan takes care of the commercial side and "kicks back with the first beer off the line every time." Whiplash beers, brewed at Rye River and occasionally at other breweries around the country, won’t have a core range as such but instead will focus on batch brewing with rotating favourites and limited releases. The aim is to promote fresh beer with a constantly evolving line up. And to pack their beers with as much flavour as you would expect from their eye catching can and bottle art.
One of their newest releases is Body Riddle, a session IPA brewed with the level of hopping one would expect from a double IPA. This is a soft and pillowy pale ale just packed with juicy fruit notes of tangerine, grapefruit and passionfruit. You can pick it up as part of our 4 for €10 can offer this month.
If you fancy something bigger then try out their latest double IPA Saturate. The focus for this beer is on the Mosaic hop with big tropical aromas and flavours yet, with the deftness of touch shown across all the beers Whiplash produce, this is still extremely soft and easy drinking. At 8.5% its perhaps deceptively easy drinking. Don’t forget these are single release small batch beers, so pick them up before they are all gone.
Expect more juicy, soft but super hoppy beers coming down the track from these guys along with new interpretations of some lesser seen styles.
