RedAye is an American Red Ale made using (mostly) Brewdog’s recipe for 5am Saint, one of my favourite beers from them. It has various crystal malts for colour, maltiness and a slight roastiness. On top of this has a shed load of hops which gives it a really intensely fruity (tropical fruits, grapefruit, resin) and slightly spicy flavour and aroma. In a direct comparison to Brewdog’s 5am Saint, it is similar, but a a lot hoppier and more bitter, with slightly more body. 5am Saint is more malty. I’m very pleased with it, and it’s going fast!
When I make this again, I’ll probably halve the amount of hops and see if that brings the balance back towards the original- not that there is anything wrong with it as it stands, but I really like the original!
