COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An "India Red Ale" A deeply red, raucously hopped showstopper of a beer. We took our Rapture red hop recipe and turned the volume up to 11. A kaleidoscope of speciality malts deliver a robust yet smoothly sweet mouth feel while sack loads of Australian whole hops bring tropical fruit flavours of lychee, papaya and passion fruit. For the grand finale we introduced waves of magic aroma by dry hopping the beer with kg after kg of those same big and beautifully pungent Aussie hops. Roll up, roll up, The Big Top is in town!

Aromen men stor fruktighet, persika eller nektarin? Fyllig smak, mycket sötma och del malt, riktigt bra beska. Riktigt bra RDIPA ;)

Keg at The Grove, Huddersfield ,Friday 20th February 2015 A most lovely aroma some marmalade on nose, along with some piney resin and then pineapple and other tropical notes picked up. In the mouth there is more of the same i.e. a good blast of tropical flavours also some grassy hop and a solid malty backbone. Very good. A8 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.8

Nose is grass, aroma is light grapefruit, light licorice, vegetables, soapy. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Finish is long lasting medium hoppy and roasty bitter. Full body, dry texture, soft carbonation. Interesting dessert ipa, not too easy to drink.
