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…

Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Cask at CP&K. It pours clear amber, with a large foamy beige head and soft carbonation. The nose is wood, smoke, orange, nut and some caramel sweetness. The taste is roasted malt, brown bread, wood, smoke, burnt malt, bitter chocolate, nut and astringency, with a long bitter-woody finish. A tasty hoppy red ale.

On tap at Magic Rock launch night, North Bar, Leeds. Pours a very nice red with. Aroma of sweetness and hops, very nicely balanced, actually. Taste is toffee-ish, with lots of hops. Very nicely balanced. Fruity, too. Drinkable. Very nice and balanced, though I prefer the fuller taste of 5AM Saint.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 11, 2011
Draughts at The White Horse (London). Very well balanced indeed, was popular around the table. Good enough to pull me away from the good cask selection for a couple of pints.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle at home, cask at Sheffield Tap 20/07/11. Hoppy amber ale? Get in there! It’s an almost-there beer; caramel is spiked with slight spice, finish is dry and not cloying, flavours assertive and not clashing, hops prominent but not dominant. Just up everything another notch on the dial, lads, and you’ve got an amber that everyone will want to clone.

suprchunk (2029) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Red color. Medium-sized off-white to khaki head. Little bit of lacing after it quickly falls. Huge hoppy, citrusy aroma. Little bit of malt. Slight watered down malt flavor. A little hop flavor and bitterness. Decent.

flip_soeperman (540) - NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2012
resin, floral, hay, dough, orange, hazy, frothy, white foam, light sweetness, very bitter, light body, creamy, lively, astringent, bitter, short aftertaste. Seems quite heavy initially, but quite uncomplex beer that after a couple of sips starts to become slightly watery

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - 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.
