Tall Poppy – India Red Ale This is an ale that is not afraid of standing tall among other great beers.  The intense, sharp and fruity hoppiness is backed by its complex, caramel-like malty structure.  Big, yet refreshing. Bold but balanced.  This beer has been designed to have it all, to be the greatest common denominator.
