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…

Beese (2035) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Draught at the Magic Rock 25 Tap Takeover at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 31 May. Poured a clear amber, with a dense, off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of berries, straw and toasted malt. Bitter hop flavours; lots of grass and pine needles, balanced with some burnt sugar. Finish was dried fruit, spice and grain.

wyzzywyz22 (1996) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2012
Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Arrived in the glass with a coat of reddy amber with a steadily fading white head. The nose revealed plenty of grassy hop in addition to notes of citrus/orange, a little spice and sweet malts. Similar themes continued on into the flavour with some fruity notes and a drying bitter finish. Decent enough but not the best offering from this stable.

[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]

Cask @ Holborn whippet. Midst red brown. Fruit then a stale funk, almost b o, aroma with hops too. Tastes close to a red ipa. Hoppy, grapefruit bitterness. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
