Tall Poppy - India Red Ale This is an ale that is not afraid of standing tall among other great beers. The intense, sharp and fruity hoppiness is backed by its complex, caramel-like malty structure. Big, yet refreshing. Bold but balanced. This beer has been designed to have it all, to be the greatest common denominator.

Brenhophead (695) - Perth, - JAN 8, 2012
Pours a dark amber colour with a big white head and an amazing aroma of sweet berries (cherry)... hard to pin down but its familiar some how. It is backed by a godsmacking flavour of cherry brandy/hop resin and an amazing backbone of caramel malt. With each sip i am falling in love with this beer a MUST try.

DSG (15301) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 12, 2017
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max's place. Thanks Lior D. Amber. Malt, caramel, stale hops, sweetish, bitter finish. Not fresh enough.

sam_uk93 (72) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2017
Pours a deep, dark amber with an off white head. Aroma is slight fruit, malty, hops. Taste is heavy malt up front, leading to a very slight bitterness, still heavy malt throughout, some sweet fruit, ending with a hint of pine. Lingers for a while, gaining bitterness slightly. Low carbonation, medium bodied. Lovely beer!

Heidbummer (932) - SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2017
Taster, six degrees north. Pours muddy red, off white head. Huge fruity and floral aroma, which is contrasted by the dry, pepper and spice taste. An odd contrast, and not completely sure it works. Interesting.

Juks (1113) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 20, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours hazy dark reddish-brown, beige head. Aroma of fruits, strawberries, jam, caramel. Taste is sweetish, caramelly, raisins, caramel, some herbal notes, nuts. Medium bodied, average carbo. Not bad, easily drinkable.

hrabren (1687) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 7, 2017
On tap at Vrteška 2017, shared with Višnja 666! Clear amber, off-white head. Good malt profile, fruity with some alcohol. Strong and toasty, even roasty. Medium body, average carbonation, light roasty finish. Good one, although not very special.

Douceberg (6) - - JUL 14, 2017 does not count
Not nearly as good as hopwired. Taste is too malty. Nothoppy enough to be considered a true IPA. Some might like it but for me it's not pleasant. Not disgusting but no too tasty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
