American Ales Red India Ale has an ABV of approx. 6.3% and pours a deep reddish brown coloured beer with a full creamy white head. The aroma is fantastic, a combination of light pine sap and tropical fruits. On the palate this beer is a pleasing cacophony of textured caramel malts, firm bitterness and juicy hop goodness. The beer finishes smooth and dry with a lasting cleansing bitterness. It has a medium bodied mouth feel with oodles of toffee and caramel maltiness. Overall a complex, sweet yet dry and bitter hopped Red Ale.
India Pale Ales are one of the most popular and manipulated beer styles in the world. Within this overarching style there are numerous sub categories that have been experimented and developed to meet the ever increasing need to deliver more and more hops to the avid beer drinker in more and more interesting ways....the Red India Ale is one of these sub categories. As with most Red Ales this one is brewed strong with an enormous addition of characterful hops. However, there is also a judicous application of caramel malts to create a maltier and darker coloured beer that helps the hops to become characterful in a slightly different way.
