3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11th March 2015: 33cl bottle, BBD 31 Dec 2015. Taken in Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Good looking beer, ruby red hue to the body, a tanned topping finished it off nicely. Maybe the colour helped, but I got red berries in both the nose and flavour along with a mixed basket of other fruity esters and tastes all rolled up in a semi-sweet malty base. Very drinkable.

Bottle. very dark red-brown. Roasty aroma, some tropical juice too. Roasty bitterness, some hops and a little woodsy. Quite light body, roasty finish and a wee bit dry. Ok

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle at home. Pours almost a blackish red, almost to the point that it looks like a black IPA, medium to small off white head. Aroma is an interesting mix of citrus, raisins, bread, and plums? Taste is similar, very complex, citrus and tropical fruit hops with dark fruit in the malts, some bread base, but definitely raisins, plums, or the like. Lovely interpretation of the style.

A fresh tasting red ipa, for its relatively low abv, it has good hop flavour, although it feels a little thin. A great summer beer.

Pours dark reddish with tan head.
Aroma roasted malts, caramel, citrus, grapefruit, pine, raisin, some peach.
Taste piney resin dry bitter, some caramel sweets, sour hint.
Great beer! I’m thinking an older bottle, although the nose was still quite hoppy there was something old.
