COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rapture is our full bodied, heavenly hoppy red beer. 5 types of malt and 6 types of hops make for a truly elating experience. Uplifting aromas of grapefruit and pine, combine with a pithy orange and pronounced citrus flavour which is balanced against a deeply rich and malty body. A satisfyingly dry and crisp finish offers your taste buds redemption. Our red ale will take you to heaven and back…

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2013
Draft. A dark amber beer with a huge lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of caramel, hops, citrus frits, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, straw, and citrus fruits, leading to a dry finish. The body is light.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2013
A decent but not exceptional red ale, not as good as the Five Points’ Red Rye. Quite astringent, some grass mulch, a lingering bitterness without the sweetness to balance it. A touch of red fruit also.

Ktwse (1467) - SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2013
Pours red amber with low white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, grapefruit, some malt. Taste is big hoppy bitter with just a touch of malty sweetness. Body is light to medium with low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamestulloch (1048) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Aroma: Faint aroma of strawberry, orange, caramel and wood.

Appearance: Clear amber body with a thin off-white head that holds well. No visible carbonation. Nice lacing.

Taste: Toffee apple, blood orange and strawberry. Quite grassy and bitter.

Palate: Thin to medium body with a slick, oily texture. Flat carbonation.

Overall: A light, juicy, complex Amber Ale, with more of a fruity hop character than others I’ve tried. I’d like this even more if the ABV was a bit higher and it had a slightly fuller body.
