A perfect marriage of the gutsy hoppy character of an IPA with the complex malty backbone of a red ale. Ruby red in colour with a thick off-white head, perfectly balanced combination of hops and rich European malt with a wallop of hop flavour and aroma character from American and Australian hops. First batch at 5.4%, subsequent batches at 5%.

Bottle pours near opaque ruby amber with big resilient off white head. Aromas of citrus, mandarins, grass atop of a grainy lightly sweet toasted malts. Medium light body, medium carbonation, malts giving a certain toasty character balanced with a rounded hop flavor.

Schooner on tap @ Webster’s, Newtown. Red/Brown beer with solid white head. Faint aroma of floral hops. Bitter taste, some earthy hops present. Light fruit cordial sweetness at the end. Nice enough, good for a couple.

mcberko (14644) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
On tap at Wayward, pours a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out bready malt and a touch of hop resins. Flavour is quite dry, with bready malts and bone dry hoppiness. Not the most interesting beer but it’s palatable.
