One of New Zealand's leading breweries, 8 Wired Brewing Co., gives us this beautiful Tall Poppy India Red Ale. Hops are the star of the show in this one, with its assertive bitterness and intense fruity hoppiness. Sweet balancing malts provide a nice balance and smooth, creamy body. Finishing dry, this India Red Ale is big, yet refreshing and probably one of the nicest Red Ales we've had in a while.

bit bland
Review by
quite a bland IPA with a bit too much bitterness for me. Not much taste other than the bitterness
Red alert
Review by
Was looking forward to this and while was indeed full of hops and rich malt flavour the taste was unpleasantly pine/resiny to my palette and had a bit of a ‘air freshener’ twang. Maybe my bottle wasn’t great or hadn’t travelled well but I didn’t finish this one
8 Wired.....Lovely beers!

Really well balanced. Caramely malts, piney hops. Fresh for the variety, belting Red IPA!
