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…

Inbreak (1875) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 25.05.2013, tap @ HaandFestival:
Small creamy shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral, wet leafs, hops, dried fruits, grass. Taste is slightly watery and harsh, leafs, grass, hops, pine needles, wood. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2011
[330ml bottle] Chestnut reddish brown pour, again almost totally flat after an initial flurry. Very inviting bitter hoppy aromas, sweet caramel in there as well, quite floral. Tastewise the immediate comparison was BrewDog’s 5am Saint – they are very similar. However, Rapture isn’t as hoppy, the malts have more say – reasonably sweet, but not overly so, the woody notes compete with the piney hops – and the end result is pretty pleasing. I got a bit of smoke in the aftertaste as well, which was interesting [11082011]

Ktwse (1836) - 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

joe19612 (1801) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2012
Cask at Reading Beer Festival 2012. Pours a amber red colour with a thin white head, plenty of fruit and a hint of caramel in the aroma, the taste is malty with some fruit.

EdKing (1788) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2011
Pours Autumn red. Nose is spicy, oranges and sweet malt. Taste is spicy with orange and tangerine fruit. Then gives way to a more spicy red berry flavour on the palate.

sm89walt (1741) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2011
Cask - The Southampton Arms, London. Fine & bubbly lasting beige head atop a cloudy, ruddy amber body. Fresh & vibrant grapefruit, peach, strawberry & pine aromas. Pine, gently resinous & grapefruit flavour profile. Cracking depth for the ABV in my book. Nice contrast between an initial juiciness and a finishing dryness. Soft, rounded & firm mouthfeel, gently spritzy crisp carbonation, medium body, big lingering zesty grapefruit bitter finish with a hint of mid berry in the aftertaste. Plenty to offer without going overboard & remaining effortlessly drinkable.

TheCametron (1730) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 31, 2011
330ml bottle with Ben. Tastes like a 5am Saint with a less subtle hop profile. In a good way. Could do with a shot in the arm alcohol-wise.
