COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tall Poppy - India Red Ale This is an ale that is not afraid of standing tall among other great beers. The intense, sharp and fruity hoppiness is backed by its complex, caramel-like malty structure. Big, yet refreshing. Bold but balanced. This beer has been designed to have it all, to be the greatest common denominator.

shorlin (716) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
Tasted a small sample at a BeerThief gathering. Pours up a red-orange and cloudy. Aroma is a fight between fruity hops and the malt. Taste is the same: bitter plus malt. My main impression of the beer is that it is very bright, big and solid throughout. Nice and dry in the finish. This is a very good beer!

BierFiend (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Pours dark amber with tan head. Smells of hops, malts, and alcohol. Tastes of rich malts, hops, and roasted malts. Finishes clean with low/medium carbonation.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2013
500ml bottle. Slightly hazy copper pour with a HUGE lasting fluffy beige head. Smells a bit like a barleywine - leafy, boozy, dry and a bit peppery. Taste - yep, BW - very malty and floral, quite bitter, strong alcohol, but not quite as boozy as the aroma. Solid body and carbonation, dry pithy bitterness in a fairly long finish. Intense indeed.
