COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An "India Red Ale" A deeply red, raucously hopped showstopper of a beer. We took our Rapture red hop recipe and turned the volume up to 11. A kaleidoscope of speciality malts deliver a robust yet smoothly sweet mouth feel while sack loads of Australian whole hops bring tropical fruit flavours of lychee, papaya and passion fruit. For the grand finale we introduced waves of magic aroma by dry hopping the beer with kg after kg of those same big and beautifully pungent Aussie hops. Roll up, roll up, The Big Top is in town!

jerd16 (226) - Gloucestershire, - APR 17, 2014
On tap at Brewdog Bristol. Very sweet toffee malt-forward aroma with some tropical fruit (mango maybe) and a slight hint of pine. Chewy malt-forward flavor is a perfect balance between sweet and savoury. Backed up by a sweet zip of tropical fruit. Chewy, sticky mouth-feel is delicious and moreish. Resinous and long bitterness. Reminds me a lot of east-coast US IPAs.

[email protected] Reddish hazy. Heavy pine, resinous, thick malty, slight almondy fruity nose. Med full bodied, sweet overripe blood oranges, good soft sweet bitters, piney finish. Clean, balanced as a dipa can be, nice flavourful. Real nice.

jjsint (2675) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2017
Keg at the Pint Shop Cambridge. Amber and very hazy with a bit of cream-coloured head on top. Aroma starts with a biscuity malt base but quickly moves to strawberry and stone fruit with a good dollop of pine needles. Sweetish taste with notable bitterness nearer the end. Resin and a vegetal note in the aftertaste. A nice amber IPA.

john44 (2687) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2017
Keg Half Pint at Craft Beer Co, Clapham, London in March 2014 - Reddish Brown in colour. Slight haze. Moderate head. Very Hoppy; piney resinous oily hops, big hop bitterness. Very Fruity; grapefruit citrus, tropical fruits, pineapple and passion fruit. Malty; grainy malts, caramel/toffee. Assertively bitter. Very bitter hoppy citrus and tropical fruity throughout. Is it an IPA or a DIPA?; either way it is a really good beer. Very enjoyable. Terrific Red IPA! (2014-03-15)
