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!

Scopey (7444) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Keg at IndyManBeerCon 2012. It pours cloudy red-brown, with a medium yellowish beige head. The nose is full of sweet red fruit: strawberry, cherry, lychee, as well as jam, pine and varnish. The taste is pine, resin, assertive bitterness, jammy fruit, lots of red berry, varnish and resinous hops, with a smooth, ballsy bitter finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Wow! Balance is brilliant and alcohol is well-hidden. Delicious and utterly drinkable. Can these guys do no wrong?
