Beer added by: canucklehead on 04-10-2009

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.

12oz Can provided by my MAINe hook-up Casey10. Thanks Brian! Served in a Nonic Pint Glass. No canned on or best-by-date.

A: Finger of nice, dense foam. Fades into a thin layer on top, riddled with different sized bubbled. Pours a pristine looking amber. Lacing is very nice for a IPA, leaving some soapy remains on the glass.

S: Fresh, grassy hops explode with some hints of citrus fruits. A big, sweet malty base balancing things out nicely. The b

T: Like I noted above, the raw resiny hoppiness is balanced perfectly by a solid malty backbone. There is some sweetness, but it's not cloying or overdone. Bitterness is present, but it's very fleeting and mostly on the finish.

M: Medium bodied. Great viscosity on this brew. There is a little stickiness, but not much. The ample, but not overabundant carbonation helps make this nice and smooth.

D: This is EXACTLY what I'm looking for in a sessionable IPA. The 6.5% ABV is never noticeable, the hoppiness and bitterness are there, but they don't abuse the palate.

I've been calling this Furious' little brother, and that's some very high praise. A truly fantastic IPA, from our neighbors up north no less! Do yourself a favor and track down a can (or 12) of this tasty brew. You won't be disappointed!

Pours a bright, deep orange with a solid bone-white head that lasts well and leaves plenty of lacing. Big tropical nose, with mango and orange, notes of pineapple and cold menthol. Awesome. Taste is piney and bitter, with those fruity notes coming through well and a long finish. Crisp and well-carbonated, brilliantly drinkable. Just a fantastic IPA, really well put-together. One of my go-to beers, especially given that it comes in cans and is thus compatible with a day of sailing.

Can from Vancouver, pours a typical IPA golden, crystal clear, nice finger of head - dies to a thin cover maintained throughout the glass.

Nose is a touch on the light side but bright and fresh, American IPA all the way which is a refreshing thing for my tastebuds and nostrils. Tangerine, pineapple, oranges, grapefruit, floral, hints of pine.

This has got to be the best IPA in Canada I've had to date, hands down. Light, sweet caramel is subtly overwhelmed (if that is possible) by floral and citrus hops, a nice, nasty (another paradox?) long hop bite full of pine finishes it off - and yet I don't feel like it was overly rough, a nice polite Canadian hop attack. Balanced and yet hopped up - a beer of paradoxes.

Pretty damn fine, especially when compared to other bottled/canned Canadian options. Were I nearer to Vancouver this would by my go to. In a can makes it even more adaptable, good for wherever whenever. Canadian hop-heads would rejoice if it wasn't for our atrocious distribution system. Kudos to Central City for this. As Bobsy said, were this an American beer the hype would be high - as is, we can be proud of this great Canadian beer.

Big thanks to my aunt who lives in Surrey for buying a sixer of this and to my brother for bringing it back for me on a recent trip he did out there. Enjoyed this last night.

Poured from a 355ml. can.

Appearance: Pours a nice orange body that's semi-clear with a huge foamy head that lasts quite long and clings to the glass with ease.

Smell: Some definite piney goodness with some citrus and a touch of sweetness at the end. A bit of resin and caramel(?). The aroma is unrelenting and is probably the best feature of this beer. An IPA cannot smell better.

Taste: Not as bitter as i would have thought and that surprised me a little. Still, the taste is solid with some ripe mango, a reserved pine presence and a lip smacking finish. Some rind a little near the end like licking the peel of a lemon or lime and just a touch of spice.

Mouthfeel: Quite smooth actually and not at all the hop bomb i thought it would be. It has a sticky, resin-like feel to it but in a good way.

Drinkability: Drinks very easily for sure. So very good and bitterness is low so no impediment there.

Overall: Everything about this brew is controled. I'm a bit torn because it's not the intense hop bomb i expected so i was going to give it a slightly lower mark but i can't really fault it either because it tastes like a well balanced IPA should taste like. I like it a lot and i'm glad i have a few more.

12oz can poured into an imperial pint glass...

Pours a nice dark amber/reddish copper color with a bit of haze...a huge four fingers worth of creamy meringue-like beige head forms and lasts for a long time, some chunks of lacing are left behind...

Nice aroma of strong citrus hops, mainly grapefruit with a nice piny edge to it as well...a decent amount of bready malt adds a bit of balance to a wonderfully hoppy beer...

Taste starts with some aggressive bitter action, very piny and resinous...a few sips in and the brew starts to sweeten a bit, the citrus in the nose comes out a bit with some juicy fruity taste and a decent malt background to slightly balance this beer...but this one is definitely about the hops, and finishes dry and bitter...

Medium bodied with decent carbonation...slightly oily and slick with a very dry lingering finish...

Probably the best IPA I have had from a can...and just overall one of the best American IPAs I have had.Period.

Wooo.. very good beer. Can see why they drank this during the war though, very filling for myself. Slows you down on those thirsty nights. would highly recommend along with their regular pale ale which is outstanding on tap

Poured from a cellar temperature can into a tumbler glass. The liquid has a light brown color. There is a lot of carbonation rising up from the bottom. The head is very big, foamy, and made up of tan bubbles. The beer has a great aroma. It's full of fresh hops and not too sweet. Maybe there's a bit of brown sugar or molasses, but it's hidden by all of the aromatic hops. The flavor starts out with some grassy hops and a touch of sweetness I could detect in the aroma. It builds up to a big bitter taste that lingers on after I swallow. It's piney and citrusy. It's a full bodied IPA and each swallow leaves a bit of a sticky coat, but not as much as some imperial IPAs (what I'm trying to say is this beer has the consistency of beer that usually has a sweeter mouthcoat). The carbonation is apparent on my tongue. This is an extremely drinkable IPA. I have gone through a number of cans in an afternoon, but I've also sat back and slowly sipped a single 12 ounce serving. This is an IPA any fan of the style should seek out.

Pours a clear orange color with plenty of compact carbonation bubble streams. The pillowy head has incredible retention and utterly coats the glass in lace. Pure PacNW hops fill my nostrils on the first sniff. More nuanced cookie dough malt aromas quickly follow making for a very pleasant nose. The taste is replete with yummy hop flavors - grapefruit, pine, melon, mango (?), floral notes... very complex. Equally impressive is the malt profile, very fresh and seamlessly integrated with the hop barrage. The mouthfeel is perfectly carbonated with velvety tiny bubbles. The finish is everything the beer is, bitter, complex, contemplative, and it lasts for ever.

This the best Canadian IPA I have yet tried. This can go toe to toe with the great West Coast IPAs (e.g. Hop Ottin, Green Flash IPA, Stone IPA). An immodest amounts of hops yet by no means a simple hop tea... the bready malts never give in and retreat.

Seek this out.

Served in a 16 oz. pint at the Alibi Room in Vancouver. Amber with good head retention. Medium white with expected amount of lace. Clear with no visible carbonation. Big grapefruit nose with some caramel malt. Carbonation bite up front, well balanced middle with both citrusy hops and malts playing well with each other. Finish is very bittersweet. Think dark chocolate on the back of the palate. Medium to medium-heavy mouthfeel.

355ml can poured into a 16oz pint glass.

A - Pours a vibrant amber glow with moderate haze in the body, and a frothy, cream head that clings to the glass as it dissipates after the initial pour. The lacing isn't quite what I expected, but there's certainly some sticky foam coating the glass as this one goes down.

S - A salvo of tropical fruit hops upfront. Pineapple, mango, sweet oranges, passion fruit, grapefruit and just a touch of cucumber. Sweet caramel malt backbone that compliments the hop profile beautifully. This is everything I want to smell in an IPA. So good.

T - Fruity hops abound in this one. All the fruits from the aroma are here in spades, with juicy pineapple and mango notes upfront, bittering grapefruit and pine, and subtle passion fruit. Malty undertones are just right, giving just the right balance but still showcasing the hop profile perfectly. As much as I know cucumber isn't really a traditional Pacific NW flavor in an IPA, it's undeniably here and works flawlessly with the other flavors. Aftertaste leaves moderate bitterness, with just the right amount of bite. Overall, this is stupidly easy to drink, and I can't picture it being any better.

M - The 6.5% ABV shows up here in the body, helping thicken it up just enough. Medium bodied feel with low carbonation that just prickles the tongue. I will admit, it's slightly oily and could use a touch more carbonation; and I do also get some subtle heat from the aforementioned alcohol content. Really, this is the only weak point of this beer, and even then it's way above average.

D - I really can't ask for a better beer here. This IPA packs everything I want in the style into readily available 6-packs for a more than reasonable price tag. Crafted remarkably in all departments, resulting in an IPA so drinkable that I finished drinking it before I finished the review. I was slightly skeptical this brew would live up to the hype, but it blew my expectations out of the water. It's easy to see now why this is such a revered beer here in Canada.

Clear hazy amber color, almost copper with a pink hue, and floating suspending detritus. Creamy foamy white 2 finger head lasting around 5 minutes. Strong legs with some vivid dual speed carbonation activity due to the particles.

Strong aromas and flavors of citrus, pine, fruits, floral and herbal spices. Perfectly intensified having some pleasant orange fruity sweetness and a rich earthy spicy bitter feel.

Slick creamy medium body with some prickly carbonation. Well intensified finish ending with a spicy, slightly dry, bitter clove like feel and pine aftertaste.

Overall : Awesome tasty flavors and balanced intensity. Great freshness while still a little dry, and the spices are just right. Excellent and accessible IPA!

Pours a clear, golden amber colour with a moderate-sized tan-coloured head that sticks around as a thin collar while leaving spotty lacing.

Very rich and surprisingly fresh aroma. Lots of tropical fruit smells like mango, pineapple as well as grapefruit, pine and even a cherry note. Fresh grains, creamed honey and a nice lightly toasted wheat smell make up the backing.

The taste has a bread-like malt tone to start before a crisp grapefruit-like citrus tone punches the palate. A buttery caramel comes through on the tongue and the finish has an assertive, but under control bitterness.

Fairly thin mouthfeel. Crisp start, mild carbonation and prickly sensation from the long-lasting collar. It gets very oily and a slight tartness lingers on the back of the tongue just enough to make you want another sip.

This beer certainly deserves its reputation. It is hands-down the best Canadian-brewed example of a West Coast IPA I've tried to this point. It's rich with well-balanced aroma and flavour and has a solid bitterness in the finish.

I'm very glad I had the chance to try it, but a the same time it's bittersweet because I know it'll be a while before I can try it again. Get it while you can Ontario!

355ml can poured into Unibroue glass nov2 2009

A crystal clear golden amber with a thumbs width of head after a hard pour. it has decent retention with a few rings of lace

S very nice almost like I'm smelling a glass of grapefruit and tangerine juice. I also pick up on a little bit of booze, pine and some caramel to go along with the floral citrus

T tastes as it smells with a little bit of malt to balance things out. very good example for this style and the best canned beer I can think of

M thick enough to please me but I'm wondering if a little more carbonation might help its cause

D smell and sip a few times and its gone, very nice beer and I wish I had more of it

one of if not the best Canadian IPA's I've ever tried with out doubt. I'm even more impressed by the fact it comes from a can, much less impressed by not finding it east of BC far as I know. drink this whenever you get the chance it's a winner

Lots of hype around this one. I'm excited!

Pours a slightly chill-hazed bright orange with a decent 1 cm head that keeps for a bit before reducing, leaving some very nice lacing marks on my glass.

Smell is full of rich pine-y notes and some of the juiciest citrus notes I have ever come across. Some nice bread, maple sugar and biscuit in the background too. Encouraging indeed!

Taste is lively with lots of piney, grapefruity-citrus hops right up front and throughout intermixed with caramel and a good amount of bready malt flavours on the finish and linger which provide for a beautifully hoppy yet balanced IPA.

Mouthfeel is bright and prickly with a surprising touch of cream and a bit of that classic IPA oilyness. The Finish is nice and clean with a touch of spice on the linger.

As for drinkability, there's not much to complain about. I could see myself drinking a few of these in 1 sitting way too easily. It goes down real smooth and provides for an interesting enough taste experience to satisfy any palate. It delivers everything an IPA lover would want but doesn't go overboard in any way - when it comes to this beer, balance is bliss.

All this from a can? Are you kidding me?!?!

I don't know if I've ever felt so privileged to have such open access to a beer before.

Straight out of the can, then another poured into a Sam Adams glass.

The pour was surprisingly nice considering it glugged out of a can. It set up with a nice, thick foamy head that stuck around for the first third of the beer, and replenishes nicely as you go.

The smell was great. If you've ever picked hops from the vine, you'll recognize the smell right away. The scent is extremely reminiscent of raw, unadulterated hops, which is pretty cool. The best part is, the can traps the smell nicely, so you can keep the can around while you're drinking and take some sweet, hoppy whiffs.

The taste mirrors the hop smell. If you could liquefy raw cascade hops, they would taste like this. Fruity, sweet, slightly bitter. Just delicious.

The constantly-replenishing head makes this a smooth drinker, although I would recommend pouring it to maximize the enjoyment of the foam.

Of course, because this sucker is in a can, drinkability is off the charts. It tastes great coming out of the can, even if you can't conveniently pour it.

All-around phenomenal beer. I'm pumped it's made its way out to MA.

I drank this from a 12oz can into my Orval glass.

The beer pours a very clear light orange with an off white head that only rises about half a finger and is gone right away.

The aroma is really nice. Perfect combination and sweet and better. Starts off with a really nice sweet citrus fading into a perfect amount of hops, enough to know they are there but not all dominating.

The taste is equally as nice. It starts off a little sweet then fades into a great hoppy finish. An almost pefect ipa balance because in neither respect does the other overpower the other.

The feel is nice, with a very long lasting dry finish.

Overall, this was a great little ipa. Could almost be a really nice ipa sessional

Can poured into a Goose Island IPA tulip glass. Courtesy of Casey10 - thanks again, man!

A - Medium-dark amber and cloudy, with a massive white head leaving behind excellent lace trails.

S - Tons of floral hops joined with notes of lemon, grapefruit, and caramel.

T - Grapefruit juice blended with a flower garden...aromatic, tart, and awesome. Perfect amount of caramel maltiness to stand up to the hop barrage. Finish is simultaneously (and deliciously) malty and bitter enough to please.

M - Pretty substantial for an IPA; well-carbonated, lively, and crisp.

D - Oh yes - this is about as good a balanced IPA as I've had.

What a beer...seriously challenges Furious for being the best IPA in a can. Superb stuff; I can't wait to have it again.

Presentation: 12 oz. can poured into an Allagash tulip glass. Enjoyed chilled on a nice warm day.

Appearance: Medium orange in color with a bit of cloudiness throughout. Three finger beige head with excellent retention. Really nice looking beer.

Aroma: Pine, grapefruit, and tons of tropical fruit. Nice balance of bitter and sweet hops. Hop forward, but a touch of biscuit notes from the malt are present.

Taste: The hops excel here as well. Pineapple, mango, grapefruit and pine are all present in incredible balance. A ton of flavor for this ABV. Crisp and refreshing. Near perfect.

Mouthfeel: Light and crisp. Perfect from the can or poured into a glass.

Overall, an awesome, hoppy, balanced IPA. Definitely one of my favorites and an awesome choice from the can. Highly recommended. A new favorite.

Appearance - Pours a warm orange-amber hue with a finger width of white bubbly head. Slightly cloudy and bubbly.

Smell - Citrus/grapefruit, robust hops, passion fruit - overall, a light, crisp, and fruity scent.

Taste - Starts with a light citrus flavour, then hits you with a gentle kick of hops. Leaves a nice bitter and citrusy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A touch of fluffiness to the feel. Very refreshing on the palate.

Overall - A great, well-crafted IPA by Central City Brewing. There are some wonderful aromas and the taste remains true to the IPA style. Definitely a must try.

Hazy orange in color, light tan finger of fluffy head adorns, leaving nice little spiderwebs as it goes down.

Smell is very nice, ample bitterness, nice citrus, and a pleasant bouquet of floral, earthy hops. Slight malt undertones lend to the good balance.

Taste is initially citrus sweet, moving sharply to a raw bitter palate. The bitter lingers a bit, turning rather piny and woodsy. Mid way through the slight sweet malts give a breather in between nice hop finishes.

Feel is slightly crisp, with good carbonation levels, a little bit of a velvety finish, upper-light in body as a whole.

Drinkability; exceptional.

12 oz can into a pint glass.

Deep orange/copper color with a full sturdy white head.

Terrific hop aroma with loads of citrus.

The taste I look for in an IPA with grapefruit, piney, grassy but some balancing maltiness.

Mouthfeel is very good.

Drinkability is where this beer will shine. I can only imagine how many I could drink of this beer without any feeling of too much of a good thing.

What a great beer. I think this beer stacks up with my favourite Surly Furious. At first I doubted the hype...now I am a believer.

I tried 18 different IPA's last week in a tasting but not the Red Racer. This would have been the pick of the litter!

Poured from a can into a pint glass. The beer pours a vibrant orange with a copper center. There is a sticky bubbly two finger head that fades to a tight cap, leaving sheets of sticky lacing on the walls of the glass.

The smell is outstanding. Citrus, oranges, mangos, grapefruit and lemon zest. Along with all the citrus there is a decent amount of pine. There is just a hint of caramel and sugared candy in the background.

The taste is not as defined, or pronounced as the smell, but still good. The citrus notes are first and foremost, mango, pineapple, oranges and lemon zest. The piney bitterness plays second fiddle, and all the hops are nicely balanced by caramel malts.

The beer is well carbonated, well balanced and the alcohol is well hidden. This is a great session IPA, something I will enjoy for sure in the summer months.

This fine brew was an extra in a recent trade with mikesgroove. (Thanks man!) Enjoyed in a nonic pint glass.

The color is deep gold tinged with orange, and it is slightly hazy. The foam on top is snowy white and doesn't leave much lacing. Head retention is low.

A great start! I opened this one on a counter at waist-height, and I immediately smelled a good gust of tropical and citrusy hops. Lots of grapefruit and orange peel and pine up front, along with notes of fresh papaya and pineapple. There's some bready and malty sweetness too, but it's far behind the hops.

Starts with flavors of oranges and sweet bread, like an orange muffin. A big wave of citrus hop flavor and bitterness comes through next, filled with notes of grapefruit, dried papaya, and pine sap. The tropical fruitiness and pine give way to a tasty biscuit-y maltiness at the swallow, though the citrus and bitterness persist through the end and into the aftertaste. This is a terrific example of a West Coast-leaning American IPA: very hop-forward, but with enough malt to keep it from being one-dimensional.

Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Starts crisp, goes smooth through the middle, and ends with a mild and drying astringency which begs for the next sip.

I wish I had a lot more of this beer. Partly because I'd love to stack it up against some of the West Coast's best IPA's in a blind taste test, and partly because this is a fantastic IPA which I'd love to drink again. And again. Central City Brewing should be extremely proud of this one. I'm about to go add it to my Wants list.
