COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For her second brew, Ava Wilson has partnered up with Epic Beers Luke Nicholas to create an extra hoppy Red Ale. Nicholas being globally known for his fondness of hops has certainly flexed his muscles delivering a bold shot to the taste buds as well as the olfactory nerves. For the 6.5 per cent ABV Extra Hoppy Red Ale, Wilson says that she has brought the sweetness working with Nicholas to ensure a balance between the floral notes and alpha levels of the hop mix and the rich red malt used in the brew.

Pdubyah (701) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 23, 2015
There is so much to like about this as a beer, to my mind. Banging amount of floral up front, crashing amount of sweet malt to carry it, and a finish that is hinting to dry but is quite a soft landing. Lovely linger and overall a bit lovely, Brilliant dark chestnut with a lovely head and great lacing. A beer to write poetry by

GlassBrass440 (321) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2015
On tap. Pours a hazy dark red with fluffy tan head. Earthy hops and bready malts in the aroma. Slight caramel notes. Taste is of toasted malts, a slight sour tang in the sides of the mouth and a rounded bitterness. Bitterness lingers in the finish along with a mild sweetness. Somewhat sticky mouthfeel.

beer-yum (1548) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 3, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2017 Restrained citrus floral aroma in a copper brown pour. The rich full body is followed by a nice bitter finish that leaves one wanting another. A very tasty brew and one that bodes well for the future of this brewstress.
