What the label says:

Red in colour this Rye IPA has aromas of pine and citrus fruits.  There is a full-bodied mouthfeel with hints of passion fruit and peaches leading to a dry finish tinged  with rye.

What the Beerdrinker says:

Even though this is described as a pale ale, there is very little paleness to it.  It is a dark chestnut beer with a good foamy head that lasts for a while,  It has a flowery nose with hints of blackcurrant and citrus notes.  It has a slight peach aroma.

The beer is very malty with slight bitter after taste.  The promised peach flavours can be obtained by sipping the beer, but otherwise the beer is excessively malty with an unpleasant salty bitter after taste.  It smells like it claims to taste, but unless it is sipped, it is pretty grim.
