Following the success of Eric The Red, here's the follow-up Red IPA: Roxanne.
Inspired by the Viking nautical theme of Eric, Roxanne is a Persian name meaning 'Dawn' and the reference of "red sky in the morning, sailors take warning".
Even though we refer to the dawn and morning time, it doesn't imply that this is a breakfast beer. Then again there are no rules when it comes to drinking beer as tasty as this.
A wonderful amber red colour, which comes from the specialty malts, but used in a way that it isn't overly malty. The malt delivers a sweet caramelly malt note that marries perfectly with the fruity hops and highlighted with the piney character from the Centennial hops.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Red malt & spice nose. Sweet red flavours upfront with spice & lingering bitterness. Candied toffees to finish. Hoppy linger. Hints of char late.
