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.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2013 Certainly looks as expected with a nice sunset red and reasonably sized head that lingers. Pretty hoppy aroma, nothing special but still nice. A nice balance of bitternesz, hops and biscuity malts. Big improvement over the last two single batches (especially puffing billy), goes down very easily plenty of flavour.

medium body, lively, I am wondering if the red malts that give it the fantastic color are giving it the bready nutty finish. Biscuit malt? I love the LC vibe in Fremantle. LC struggles to put a flowery hop aroma on a beer, as seen in their wet hop pale ale offering a few months back. This IPA is very nice, but the label promises heady spice and citrus aromas. My grapefruit meter ticked up to a deuce.

Muted nose its good, a bit watery on the finish, and has the sierra nevada like hop profile , which I can only assume is whole cone hops, which isnt a highlight for me, great but not outstanding

Bottle into glass with a nice red hew. A slight sweet aroma and taste. Not as bitter as other IPA, perhaps it is masked well as everything comes together to a dry finish.
