Notes/Commercial Description:
A style of ale that was fashioned to survive the long voyage from England to India during the British colonization. Hop, hops, and more hops! This ale has an intense aroma and a long lingering finish. A beer for the connoisseur, this is the Brewmasters choice.

Known as Red Betty IPA in the United States.

Another thanks goes out to kmurray8621 for sending me this. I'm an IPA fiend and don't care who knows it!

Pours a semi hazy orange copper color with about two fingers of off white head. It has great retention and manages to leave some intense sheets of lacing on the glass.

The nose is hoppy and sweet, with citrus and spicey hops the main players, while the malty backbone has just begun to peak its face through.

More spicey hops in the taste than I got in the nose, and the citrus and floral hops are gone, replaced by piney and resiny bitter hops. Malts come out a bit more in the taste. Still very hop forward without being one sided.

Light to medium in body, with a crisp carbonation and a lingering bitter aftertaste. Drinkability is great.

Overall, a great IPA, and I'm really glad that I got a chance to try this, as it looks like it's gaining popularity and not a lot of people have had a chance to try it. Canadians brew good beer too!
