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…

visionthing (2607) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2012
On tap at Schouskjelleren. Hazy amber with an off-white to beige head. Hoppy aroma with citrus, caramel, pine, tropical fruit, malt and hint of spices. Light to medium sweet with medium bitterness. Finish is bitter, a bit dry and quite citric. Medium body. Well balanced. Lots of flavour and a very good session beer. Refreshing and easy to drink with a long aftertaste with fruit, citrus and a decent bitterness.

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2012
From keg@Haand ØlFestival 2012. Unclear reddish amber body. A finger-thick blond lace on top. Fresh citrus-zesty hop aroma with some leafy and light resnious tones. Taste is surely hop driven. Lemony hop flavor. Notes of resin, green leaves and pineapple. Light and dryish malt body. Medium full. Lingering bitterness in the finish. Drinks good, sessionable.

Beer4000 (4405) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2012
On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. Hazy deep orange body with a small off-white head. Very nice hoppy aroma of grapefruit, pine and some oranges. Flavor is sweet, bitter and citric fruity with grapefruit and pine on a caramel malt base. Relatively light bodied, still strong in flavor and a fine bitterness. A bit more bitterness in aftertaste. Very nice and impressive at this ABV.

lusikka (6043) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2012
330 ml bottle.
Pours a deep amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma of really strong tangy hops, orange peel and lemon zest. Again, flavour of strong hops, astrigent, gooseberries, biscuity malts, caramel and orange peel. Medium bodied, rough mouthfeel and a rough, strong bitter finish. 4,6% ABV greatness.

ACD (621) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 27, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours deep hazy amber/red with thin white head - plenty of lacing. Aroma is primarily grapefruit, bit of pine, citrus fruits (orange peel), slight funkiness. Taste is well balanced between the bitter citric hop notes (grapefruit) and the deep, rich, smooth caramel malt. Could maybe do with a bit of bumping up in the ABV department, but, as it is, it is a near-sessionable red ale, packed full of flavour.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2012
Medium beige head. Hazy opaque reddish amber body. Catty minty aroma with resiny citric notes. Dry-bitter resiny wooden taste with fruity citric notes. Mid-bodied. Astringent mouthfeel. Dry wooden grapefruit aftertaste with spicy resiny notes. Long finish lingers. Nice, but a bit harsh. (0.15l sample, Haand Beer 2012.)
