3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very fruity aroma, deep tan in colour, thin white head and quite hoppy. Smooth for such a strong beer, I like it and IPA’s are not my favorites.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Scratch bar (2015). Pours mahogony with nice head and decent hoppy nose. Nice broad bitterness on the palate to balance the rich malt base that provide toffee character. Quite enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
At Tipplers Tap in Brisbane. Great red 2IPA locally brewed. Looks good, smells nice and has a hoppy taste with a good bitter follow through on the Palate. Tastes of citrus, caramel and just the right amount of malt, very easy to drink for an 8.5% as advertised. I was impressed and had a few. Excellent work Brewtal, very nice beer! Recommend this if you can get your hands on it.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at tipplers tap. A fruity sort of aroma that tantalizes. Sweet tasting into a slight bitterness. The alcohol is masked well until it blends with the bitter after taste. A great brisbane brew!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 Had this on tap at Tippler?s tap. Red IPA coming in at 8.2% ABV. Nice colour, smells sweet and hoppy. Good flavour balance though I would expect a bit more of a hop punch out of a strong IPA. Not sure what hops are used but they?re nice and fresh, not too much bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice aroma, esters of some sort, plus a tad of pine. Appearance is a beautiful red colour with nice head. Taste is where the rye comes out, it’s slightly peppery too, quite interesting but very pleasant. Palate is malty and hoppy, a tad like the taste. Overall really interesting and a great beer!
