Rapture is our full bodied, heavenly hoppy red beer. 5 types of malt and 6 types of hops make for a truly elating experience. Uplifting aromas of grapefruit and pine, combine with a pithy orange and pronounced citrus flavour which is balanced against a deeply rich and malty body. A satisfyingly dry and crisp finish offers your taste buds redemption. Our red ale will take you to heaven and back

Belgianloner (40) - Manchester, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Can consumed at home in March 2016. AROMA: Fresh, clean and piney. APPEARANCE: A cloudy deep red with an amber hue. A sustainable white fluffy head and decent carbonation. Head retains to about 1cm depth for quite some time. TASTE: Hoppy, bitter, well balanced. Nice clean water profile on the tip on my tongue. Not much sweetness. PALATE: Oily, smooth, slick, low carb on tongue, long lasting bitterness. OVERALL: An enjoyable red ale with plenty of hops and a nice full bodied malt back bone which allows the hops plenty of room to take centre stage. I really like this brewery.

weordie (998) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2016
Pours red with a big foamy head. The aroma is sweet berries. A lovely sweet berry flavour is balanced out by a slight bitter finish, its a bit like a black IPA taste.

Towey1989 (2116) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2016
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of peach, red berries, pine, some grapefruit, slight caramel and grassy hops. Taste of peach, grapefruit, red berries, some orange, slight pine, a little papaya, a hint of caramel, subtle toasted malts and earthy, grassy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, fruity, earthy, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. Probably the best cask amber Ale you can get, every flavour available from malts, citrus, fruit, pine and earthy hops. Great.

Antzrhere (125) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Pours murky red, so murky it almost appears brown. White head that disappears to a white lace that persists. Aroma of red berry, tropical fruit, pine. Taste is sweet and very hop upfront but not overly bitter. Flavours of toasted malt, fresh resinous pine, orange, red berries and mild herbal notes. A well balanced IPA. Very similar aroma and flavours to Brewdog 5am Saint (which is also a red hoppy ale) but this one just tops it with abit more of a fresher hop taste (by memory).

HonusWagner (2131) - Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2016
An extremely well-crafted beer, but Im not as keen on piney hops as many of my beers and the intensely resinous quality of this beer left quite an impression. If you like pine this should be one of your favorite beers ever by my estimation.

Bijl (360) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2016
Amberkleurig, troebel, veel deeltjes in het bier, 2 vingers hoge crmekleurige schuimkraag, matig koolzuur zichtbaar. Aroma: Tropisch, ananas, perzik, grapefruit, pijnboom en aardig moutig. Smaak: Perzik, Pijnboom/harsig, tropisch, florale grassige netelige bitter die lang blijft maar niet overdreven is. Veel mouten, brood/ biscuit, karamel, rode bessen en aarde. Body is medium, weinig koolzuur, droog en bittere finish.

Maakun (4483) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2016
Can at home. Almost clear amber with decent sized beige head. Lots of citrus with lime, grapefruit and orange. Nice caramel, soft roasted malts, a hint of cocoa. Basically what youd expect but maybe even more fruity and hoppy. Theres some grassyness in the finish too. Under medium sweet and medium bitter. Decent medium bodied without the light chalky feel some red ales can have. Good beer.

sjogro (3188) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2016
Can at home. Unclear dark honeylike amber with offwhite head. Sweet malts, bread, tea, caramel, weedy hops, oranges, tangerine and something more exotic. Medium sweet and light bitter. Medium body, bit malty and bit mineralwaterlike textures. Very pleasant fat and slick mouthfeel and equally pleasing bittersweet fruity and hoppy finish.

MelvinKalksma (1230) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque orange/brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium off-white/beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Great appearance and palate. Superb flavour for its abv as well. The aroma could have been stronger, but that is the only flaw.
