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!

Papsoe (25083) - 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

Craft. Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Crisp palate, semi dry. Minerally malt cream gives way to fresh ping and yellow grapefruit hops, fairly bitter. Orange marmalade and bitter pine brings up the rear. Crisp semi dry finish, good bitter linger. Moorish! 36

Good creamy malt base, trace of caramel. Complex bitter hops - bitter orange marmalade but with sweet orange entwined! Trace of sweet pineapple and bitter pine. Smooth soft finish. Good bitter linger. Very nice red IPA.

Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2012
Keg at CBC, London. Pours a lightly cloudy ruby with a strong, white foam head. Nose of pine, berries and grass. Sweet, toasty malts kick things right off in the flavor, with notes of caramel and berries, then there’s moderate piney bitterness with lighter grass, earth and ripe citrus. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky finish with plenty of juicy, ripe citrus hops and toasted sugar, along with chewy pine and light caramel. Very solid beer.

Scopey (7193) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2012
Bottle from Summer Wine Brewery Online Store. It pours hazy amber, with a decent yellow-white head. The nose is watermelon, papaya, berry, olive oil and gruyere cheese. The taste is pine, grass, resin, blood orange, tangerine, papaya, metal, with a massive bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. The bitterness is quite aggressive indeed! As usual this is a flavoursome beer from SW, but not their most drinkable.
