4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep reddish amber with a creamy off-white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet fruity, piney, resiny hops with a little pepper and some nutty malts.
The flavor is sweet caramel malts and fruit with a nice piney lightly resinous hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a very nice drinking well balanced beer. It has some great hop flavors.

Not too many red ales to compare this too, but man, is this a tasty one. Highly recommended!

A wonderfully hoppy crisp red all with American hops that come through in the aroma and flavor. The color is red and vibrant. The flavor of the hops is nicely balanced with a malty caramel flavor. A very enjoyable beer.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. The aroma is fabulous: sweet, smoky and freshly hoppy. Slightly lighter in taste and mouthfeel than I expected; less of a prounced flowery hoppiness, more of a herby, light citrus bloom to the fresh tang. Plenty of orange peel and faint nut from the rye. Balanced and very good.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a solid reddish amber. Malty upfront and then a kick of hops. Amazing red.

Fruity aroma. Rich amber in color with a creamy head. Rather sweet with some toasty hops and a nice note of citrus. Extremely smooth and drinkable.

I don't usually like ipa's, but I do like this one. Probably the citrus. This is a keeper. :-)

Sweet aroma, beautiful ruby colour with white head. Moreish taste, piney malt and pleasant bitter tang. Refreshing after a long week!

330 ml bottle, pours a transparent red with a small head, great caramel malt aroma with piney hops, wish there were any UK beers with this distinct aroma. Really well balanced finish. Excellent ale.
