Bottle from the brewery. Poured dark red/brown with little head. Excellent malt base with lots of rye flavour with a hoppy finish. Excellent. Leighton (22508) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2011
Cask at The Bree Louise, London. Dark gold pour with a thick, foamy eggshell head. Beautiful nose, piney hops and grapefruit come piercing through. Damn, this is really, really good. Flavor holds toasty malts, honey, caramel, huge bitterness of pine, grapefruit, tangerine and earth. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky, dank hop finish, lingering pine, earth, and lighter citrus. Some faint sugar maltiness helps balance things out. Wow. Excellent beer. Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle at Craigs. A dark brown beer with a lacy light tan head. Aroma of leather, coffee and caramel. Flavours of coffee, passion fruit, dark malts and barley. Foamy mouth-feel with a fair CO2 prickle from the moderate carbonation. cgarvieuk (26077) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 19, 2011

Bottle @ JohnMurdoch. Amber colour, off-white head. Nose is pine, grapefruit, some malts. Flavour is malty, fairly bitter pine. Ok stuff, but a bit watery and one-dimensional.

Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Spicy hoppy aroma. Dark medium brown colour, good head. Hoppy flavour. Quite smooth. Slightly disappointing copy of a classic American IPA. swooper (1254) - Cambridge and Kladno(Czech Rep.), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2011

Bottle at home. Pours almost clear mahogany with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and light resiny hops. Taste is good bitter hops, almost a creamy/velvety smooth mouthfeel.Good balanced,fresh crispy hops and a solid malty body. Lingering spicy and herbal bitterness, what a threat! larsga (7668) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2011
Medium beige head. Deep dark red body. Spicy mango and lime aroma with sugary notes. Dry-sweet wooden mango and spice taste with lime and roasted malts notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry-sweetish wooden spicy lacquer aftertaste with fruity gooseberry notes. Very easy to drink. Outstanding. (0.33l bottle, beermerchants.com.)

Bottle. Deep ruby with a fine beige foam tufting the glass. Ripe hop aroma dripping with orange and pineapple jelly, flowers, blackcurrant, bubblegum and mango. After a snort of that the flavour can’t fail; orange and blackcurrant pastilles, Ribena and tonic. Some very late husk. Malt and rye completely demolished by hops. I’ve only had one Redemption beer before, at Cov 2010 and I knew in a sip they were good. Beautiful beer.
