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!

[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.

Lätt disig bärnstensfärgad öl med dragning åt rött. Större ljusbeige skum som ligger kvar. Doft av citrus, karamell och lätt kryddighet. I smaken tillkommer viss gräsighet.

jjsint (3000) - 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.

tiong (7194) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2017
Draught @ Bar Molotow, Helsinki. Pours dark reddish with a smooth head. Aroma of caramely malts and resinous hops. Taste is malty, caramely and sweetish with some herbal notes, grass, pine and resin. Finish is malty and caramely with some pine and resin. Okay.

john44 (3062) - 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)

Keg at Andrew Usher’s. Murky amber/brown body with a thin white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of wood and dried leaves. Flavour of caramel and blood orange with a bitter finish. Medium body with a chewy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Rich and hoppy with a distinct blood orange vibe. Very easy to drink for the strength. Nice.

Keg at Craft Beer Calling at the Wylam brewery. Ruby with a nice cream head. Fruity tropical aroma with mango and passionfruit. The taste is more tropical fruitiness with spice and toffee. Excellent.
