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…

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2016
Cask at The Newcastle Beer Festival. Deep, ruby-amber with a bubbly, off-white head. The aroma is muted but there is some dried fruit, sultana and spice detectable in in. The taste is earthy, twiggy and slightly jarring. There are some pleasant biscuity malt notes but on the whole it came across as a little harsh and grainy. A disappointment - I definitely expected more from this one. Maybe my palate was suffering as I drank this immediately after a marshmallow porter. One for the "try again if possible" list.

Idiosynkrasie (6396) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2016
330ml can. Cloudy, dark amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Caramel malty and (partly citrusy) fruity hoppy aroma, notes of red berries, orange, mandarine, some pine, a nuttily touch (peanut). Taste is crisp hoppy, citrusy fruity, notes of orange, mandarine, hints of red berries and pine, a minimally chalky touch, caramel malty background with subtle sweetness and a minimally nuttily touch; lasting bitter hoppy finish. Refreshing, mouth-filling, very very nice.

weordie (826) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2016
Pours red with a big foamy head. The aroma is sweet berries. A lovely sweet berry flavour is balanced out by a slight bitter finish, it’s a bit like a black IPA taste.

allanmb (172) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Pours deep amber with quite a bit of haze and thin beige head. Aroma of citrus and zesty hops with a touch of caramel and toffee. Medium carbonation. Taste of fruity hops and sticky toffee pudding fades to zesty bitterness. Medium dry finish. Very good amber. Not too malt forward.

Scottishchris (682) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2016
Can from beerhive. Murky red brown, big off white craggy head. Malty hoppy nose. Medium full body, sft fizz. Caramel and hoppy bitterness. Pretty full on for such a (relatively) mild abv. Good red ale.

likeatrainwreck (466) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Deep copper with an off white head. Loads of hops in the aroma, flavour is strong malt, with a bitter hoppy finish... bit of pine, bit of citrus... quite thin in the mouth, but refreshing and very drinkable. Good beer.

Belgianloner (40) - Manchester, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Can consumed at home in March 2016. AROMA: Fresh, clean and piney. APPEARANCE: A cloudy deep red with an amber hue. A sustainable white fluffy head and decent carbonation. Head retains to about 1cm depth for quite some time. TASTE: Hoppy, bitter, well balanced. Nice clean water profile on the tip on my tongue. Not much sweetness. PALATE: Oily, smooth, slick, low carb on tongue, long lasting bitterness. OVERALL: An enjoyable red ale with plenty of hops and a nice full bodied malt back bone which allows the hops plenty of room to take centre stage. I really like this brewery.
