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.

maneliquor (2782) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Ruby red pour with a small beige head. Nose shows floral and earthy hops. Very sweet malts. Loads of toffee up front. Taste shows bitter hops but for me this beer is all about the malt profile. Loads of honey and toffee/caramel tones which combine to make a very balanced beer with a lengthy bitter finish. Sessionable stuff. A good drop
