COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Reaper is a Red IPA, rich deep ruby hued monster with an array of big, full flavoured hops like Centennial, Simcoe, Summit, complemented with Amarillo & Dana varieties. This bruising IPA has big malty, sweet backbone which the hops play against with style. If you like IPA’s with big hop flavour & malty sweetness then Reaper is one for you. Don’t fear the Reaper!

Über craft. Hugely over bittered, no aroma really but like being kicked in the teeth by pellet hops. No discernible character beyond the taste of pellets.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2014
Bottle at home. Aroma of pineapple, citrus, hops, grass, earth, quite complex. Flavour has some fruity hoppyness, bitter and dry. A little too bitter and dry for my tastes.

A little unusual this. Not sure but that might be pine. Kinda sweet, tropical or citrus, dunno, but there’s some kinda funky aftertaste that could be the pine. Looked through other reviews to try and identify it but couldn’t. My mate said... too sweet. It wasn’t particularly sweet, but had some kinda odd flavour - did I mention that? Haven’t got time for this. Ratebeer yawn. Give it up.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a cloudy amber with a very lively, frothy off-white head leaving some lacework. A very tropical hop aroma, a little greasy though. Medium body, caramellish, a little mildewy, overripe fruit and a solid dose of bitter hops. Not exactly crisp but still enjoyable. 150812
