Jopen Jacobus RPA

Worthy of a pilgrimage

Crisp and bitter Rye Pale Ale , 5,5%

Jopen Jacobus is a Rye Pale Ale. It is amber in colour and has a fruity bitterness thanks to the use of American hops. The rye malt gives the beer a distinct flavour. Jopen Jacobus RPA is named after the former Jacobskerk. Jopen took over this church for use as a brewery, grand café and restaurant and renamed it the Jopenkerk. This beer was developed in 2011 on occasion of the church’s centenary.

Jacobus was the patron saint of the pilgrims. During their pilgrimages, they spent their nights in guesthouses. These guesthouses were exempt from the payment of levies as long as they brewed beer with rye. This is why Jacobus is a Rye Pale Ale. A beer with body.

Jopen Jacobus RPA

Geur

Fruity aromas of bitter citrus fruit, orange, grapefruit, pine, caramel and toast.

Smaak

Crispy bitter flavour. Juicy fruitiness of grapefruit combined with a hint of pepper from the rye and a hint of caramel from the lightly toasted malt.

Afdronk

Prominent bitter finish with a clear fruity character thanks to the American hops varieties, as well as a somewhat peppery spiciness from the rye.

 

Flavour associations

In tasting the flavors associated with Jopen Jacobus RPA:

Rye is generally the dominant flavour when it comes to rye beer. Jacobus, on the other hand, retains a certain fruitiness with hints of citrus and orange instead of the usual berries. A fine example of American hops at work. This is a light IPA that is easy-drinking, unpretentious and well-balanced. With unnoticeable transitions, this beer is like a one-act play as opposed to the classic three acts of foretaste, body and finish. Fantastic!
