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.

jmgreenuk (5233) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle at Taps, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a crystal clear medium reddish amber with a long lasting frothy white head. The aroma is woody resin hop with caramel malt. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a huge resin hop light toothpaste palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A real hop fest.

Monchito_IPA (163) - SPAIN - JUN 6, 2014
Lo tiene todo. Color precioso, vivo. Espuma estupenda, abundante y persistente. En el aroma y en el sabor hay caramelo y lúpulo resinoso y afrutado, intenso. Muy intensa en el polo maltoso-caramelo y en el lúpulo. Compleja y deliciosa, una de mis cervezas favoritas.

EddyBeer1 (976) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2014
Ambrée foncée, effervescence faible, mousse disparaît dans la seconde. Caramel très (trop?) présent, amertume plutôt forte, légèrement fruitée, belle présence d’épices, un peu écoeurante sur la longueur.

Smalle (176) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle at Delirium. Massive caramel on the nose, with a good quantity of hops. More hops in the taste and especially the finish, but the caramel continues to dominate. Absolutely enjoyable beer, well balanced, but a bit too sweet for my taste.

martjoobolut (1132) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 19, 2014
0,5L bottle. Pours deep red with light tan head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is pine, malt and caramel. Taste is pine bitter, caramel, fruits, and malt. Finish is pine bitter and caramel. Overall: nice brew.

elbernays (711) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle at home from Drinkstore. Pours ruby red with tan foam head. Floral, herb hops aroma. Toffee, caramel, bread malt base with perfume. Sharp pithy bitterness. Carbonation a bit strong which leaves a long lasting dry aftertaste. Full flavour with slick mouthfeel. Good
