Details

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.

quite a bland IPA with a bit too much bitterness for me. Not much taste other than the bitterness

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

I'm not usually a big fan of amber ales but this went down very favourably! Lovely malty deep lavish taste.

Dark brown and hazy with a frothy head. Has a hoppy taste and has a silky feel. Very nice tasting beer and worth having a go on.

From the first sip to the last swallow this has big hops through it. Couple that with the body of malt and this is one cracker
