From bottle in tulip. Pours a beautiful ruby red with 1 finger head and aroma that is a nice fruity/earthy mix. The taste and finish are well balanced too and I’m repressing attempts to sing like Sting "...you don’t have to put on the red light". Solid Maris (1627) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 6, 2017
From a 500ml bottle on 6/8/2017. Pours a clear ruby red with a small head.The nose features some caramel and fruity hops. the flavour is nice and clean, with sweet fruit, particularly berries, and some light spice, against a background of caramel and toasted malt, with a strong bergamot flavour in the background. The hops are firm without being over the top. Medium bodied with average carbonation. An excellent, quite unusual red IPA. Skarecrow (1113) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 1, 2017
Red brown pour with huge creamy head.
Grapefruit, orange, biscuit malt and a touch of sulfur in the aroma.
Medium bitterness with malt palate.
Good. mkel07 (6576) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2017
030617. Bottle from Brisbane Brewing. Great name for a red IPA and this was a super tasty beer and one of the better red IPA’s going around at the moment. True to the name the beer poured a red colour with a white head. More malty than hoppy which is not a bad thing. Enjoyable in every sense and well worth the money that I paid for it. danjs5 (362) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2017
Inviting clear amber pour. Nose of sweet fruits; citris and peach. Vert simple and subtle upfront hop flavours with bitterness to follow. Background caramel and molasses flavour malts more evident as beer warms. Nice rounded clean mouthfeel with mid body. Delicious. Cant go wrong with an Epic red IPA. A good NZ beer.

500ml BB 15.3.18 Amber red off white head. Sweet Caramel, bready malt, fruity, floral, hint of passionfruit, citrus, Grapefruit and pine. Moderate bitterness pairs well with malts, though bitter hops linger in the finish. beer-yum (2010) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 26, 2017
Citrus pine aroma in a copper pour. Restrained hop forward balance has a malty fruit body and sustained moreish finish. Another subtle Epic brew that touches all the bases for the style. Gingham (17) - Hawera, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 11, 2017
Roxanne looks sexy in the glass a dark amber colour with solid head. A very good nose. The malt that is promised is a little lacking but the hops are great.

Delicious aroma of sweet peach, bubblegum. Taste is stonefruit and orange, rye-like spice, pine, brassy bitterness. Fairly light carbonation, yet pleasantly tingly.Very nice.
