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.

473ml can into snifter. canned on april 9, 2014. enjoyed on may 23, 2014. i've had this many times before though

a: a clear, gorgeous, and glowing deep orange/amber with one and a half fingers of head

s: a potent but balanced tropical hop blast consisting of, in this order: pineapple, mango, pine, citrusy lemon & grapefruit, and bready caramel malt

t: ultra dank pine up front, but loads of pineapple as well, which quickly leads into juicy and bitter pink grapefruit. the caramel malt enters mid-palate, lingers for some time, and is absolutely delicious. hints of peaches? finishes dry -- bitter and piney. strong and unbelievably tasty flavours

m: medium body, slightly creamy, medium-to-high carbonation

o: CANADIAN SCULPIN. the best canadian IPA i've had so far and one of my overall favourite beers. central city recently switched over from 355ml cans to tallboys for this beer, while also lowering the price by a few cents -- can't beat that! gonna be slamming these all summer long. a must-try for hop heads
