COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
According to well versed folklore, a red sky at night was a reassuring vision for those that spent their days toiling at the mercy of Mother Nature’s whims. Today, a stunning sunset serves more as the perfect accompaniment to a day’s end ale than a guide to fair weather ahead. With that in mind, this hop mad Red IPA is as captivating as the night sky, with our most lavish hopping regime to date. The resulting heady spice citrus aromas and lasting dry bitterness is balanced with a malt bill delivering depth of flavour and a distinct copper-orange hue that would provide any weary shepherd with plenty of delight.

Not as red as I would have liked, and the hop bill didn’t really come through on the palate as much as it did on the nose. Actually, a lot like a very well balanced IPA, rather that the strong hoppy red ale I was hoping for. Very drinkable though, and carries the 6.4% well.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2013
Pours pale copper with a large head. Nose shows caramel, soft fruity confectionery, spicy hops and subtle bready malt. Lots more sweet clean malt as a flavour along with more of the confectionery notes. Transitions to spicy hops in the finish. A bit of booze shows. Nice moderately high carbonation works wonderfully.

mkel07 (2520) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2013
500ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Big deep rocky head, copper red beer and awesome citrus hop aroma. Full flavoured easy drinking beer that I could easily drink quite a few of. Lively in the mouth with a nice long finish.

CitrusP (58) - Newcastle, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2013
Pours a dark amber with a finger of creamy looking head. Slight funk and spicy hops in the aroma. Bready,earthy malt and NZ hops dominate the flavour palate, some residual sweetness. Like a Rogers, A LC Pale Ale and Hoppy amber all in one. Could ramp up some of the bitter and aromatic hops. Nice beer, dry and bitter finish, refreshing
