COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - AUG 28, 2012
Pours a deep clear reddish mahogany with a moderate creamy head with great retention. Beautiful hoppy and sweet aroma, dark fruits and citrusy bitterness - wonderful! Strong malt flavour - plums, light molasses (fancy) and dark caramel with a fresh citrusy/piny hop finish. Good carbonation, moderate body. Really really nice!

Marko (5538) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 7, 2017
On tap at Vrteka. Thanks... someone... :D Clear amber body, off white head that went away fast. Oily malty aroma, light tangerine. Light malty taste, vague flowery and citric hoppy undertones. Yeah, not an IRA, closer to an Amber Ale. But meh however you put it.

Roja cobriza, muy bonita en copa. Aunque no estaba en toda su plenitud, buen equilibrio entre maltas, caramelo, afrutados y resinosos. Cuerpo medio y sabroso, de sabor caramelizado y con las notas tan caractersticas del simcoe en un final resinoso y especiado con postgusto otra vez maltosa. Chula!

Unde (1057) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 14, 2017
Amber red colour with nice head that left beautiful lacing as it dissolved. Aroma has caramel malts, raisin and dried fruits, pines and grass hops too. Taste is sweet with caramel malts, raisin, ends with pines and grass hops. Medium body and medium carbonation. Way too much caramel malts for me, maybe the hops have disappeared already, who knows.

kaserov (590) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 13, 2017
UPDATED: APR 19, 2017 Color mbar casi marrn, rojizo si le da la luz, translcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (poca retencin). Carbonatacin media. Textura acuosa. Aroma a ctricos, resina y caramelo. Sabor frutal, algo ctrico, resinoso, con buena dosis de malta caramelizada que hace presencia a mitad de trago y sobre todo en regusto. Quiz hay algo que remite a fruto seco, o quiz solo sea yo. Amargor medio tirando a suave que se acenta mnimamente en postgusto. Seca. Me hubiera gustado probarla fresca de verdad, debe de ser ms que buena.

7/20 quite a bland IPA with a bit too much bitterness for me. Not much taste other than the bitterness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
