wonderful deep red hue. big pillowy head.
aromas of all kinds of fruit, strawberry, mango, cherry.
tastes all the above with pine and a touch of sherbert. obviously a great malty flavour comes through.
wonderfully think mouthfeel, tart & slightly sour bitter finish.

Keg at Arcadia, Leeds. Pours a deep ruby, finger of slightly bubbly head. Aroma is all the good youd expect, caramely malt and cloves/spice. Taste is initially a little sweet, with a caramel/sherbet thing found on, before it expands into a hoppy balloon of bliss. The malt balances it brilliantly (dominating is too strong a phrase), with a nice spicy, clovey note as well as little sweetness. The way this expands on the palate is really impressive, and right up my street. Magic Rock are yet to properly disappoint me: this is a stunner. Arczir (129) - POLAND - FEB 10, 2014
On tap at House of Beer, Cracow.
Very pleasant, hoppy nose with absolutely lovely aussie notes; white grape, some red tropical fruits and solid malty, caramel aroma. Also - some flowers in the end. Beer itself is clear ruby with slick medium head. Looks tasty, smells tasty and is tasty indeed - really good caramel backbone right before palate-stomping, bitter finish of grape. Bitterness feels exactly like biting trough a grape stone while eating some sweet white grapes. Full bodied with slick texture, medium carbonation and pleasant, fruity palate. Very good. 77ships (10770) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2015

Keg at IndyManBeerCon 2012. It pours cloudy red-brown, with a medium yellowish beige head. The nose is full of sweet red fruit: strawberry, cherry, lychee, as well as jam, pine and varnish. The taste is pine, resin, assertive bitterness, jammy fruit, lots of red berry, varnish and resinous hops, with a smooth, ballsy bitter finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Wow! Balance is brilliant and alcohol is well-hidden. Delicious and utterly drinkable. Can these guys do no wrong?

Keg at King Bill IV, London during the Magic Rock event. Pours rich, amber-brown with a tight, creamy tan cap. Nose holds dirty earth and pine, toasty bread, toasty grass. Medium sweet flavor with lots of pine, earth and dirt, some burnt grass, rich toasted brown bread, very light dried berries. Medium bodied with average, smooth carbonation. Moderately resinous finish with toasted pine, dry berries, mild warmth, rich brown bread. Good and ballsy. VictorStr (1740) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Aromen men stor fruktighet, persika eller nektarin? Fyllig smak, mycket sötma och del malt, riktigt bra beska. Riktigt bra RDIPA ;)

Keg. Deep red scarlet ale. Opaque with, as expected, a BIG TOP. decent offwhite head too. Smells of mango, grapefruit, lime. Taste is surprisingly malty, but still tons of fruits. Mango and lychee and a little plum perhaps. Finish is solid. Dry, sweet and bitter and lasting. BenH (3436) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 19, 2012
