pours a deep red with plenty of malt and hops in the aroma.the flavour opens up with caramel,toffee maltís that work brilliantly with the citrusy hops to deliver a well balanced bitterness that doesnít seem to end while never overpowering. one word....RedHopulous.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows lots of tropical fruit and rich malt. Very syrupy smelling, incredibly tempting.
Similar flavours, with lots of crystal malt sweetness but also showing lots of tropical fruity hops. Big papaya, lychee and resinous hop notes. Amazing malt character too.
Nice syrupy body, could use a little more carbonation though.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from the growler an opaque dark copper red with a light head. Yeast and sweet citrus aromas. Light carbonation and sirupy thick. A hit of sweet malt fills the palate followed by a mild bitterness that hangs around and doesn't let go.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler fill, deep chestnut amber red with low level champagne like carbonation. Thick off white head leaving nice lacework down the glass. Aromas of roasted malt and caramel dominate with some floral hints of resinous hop. Soft carbonic mouthfeel with a real malty punch mid palate, well rounded flavour with a classic nutty and bitter lingering finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Red hued amber with a frothy head and good lacing. Aromas of caramel biscuits and toast. Hop bitterness works through the entire beer, with flavours of cherry medicine, roasted malt and traces of alcohol despite only being 5%abv. Slightly over carbonated for a beer with such a big grain bill leaving a real fizz in the mouth (out of bottle, I didn't experience this on tap)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Hopdog beerworks tap takeover at the Durham, May 2015. This was a slightly sour red hoppy ale, enjoyable. Iím not sure itís meant to have the sour notes, reading the description (and the hopdog India saison alongside was definitely contaminated), but it worked well enough for me.
