It’s Autumn so that means one thing. Red IPA season!
Brewery: BrewDog in Ellon, Scotland Style: Red Rye IPA ABV: 7.4% Rate Beer: 96/100 Pour: ***lost review from 2016*** Reddish brown colour with good head on pour Quite a silky smooth texture once given some time to breathe. Sticky and sharp on the tongue.

Brewery: Five Barrel Brewing in Wollongong, NSW Style: Red IPA ABV: 5.5% IBUs: 50 Rate Beer: not listed on Rate Beer Pour: Copper red colour with a big foamy head that holds A beautiful hoppy, beer that holds back the ABV which makes it a good drinking beer. Not as malt driven as some Red IPAs […]
Smooth toffee and caramel flavours in this bold red IPA. It’s no secret I love a good red IPA and I am a fan of the guys at Tumut River Brewing. They make some great beers and this is a stand out beer.
