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.

Huge thanks to ShogoKawada for helping me tick this one off - it has been on my wants for a long time.

Lovely, clear, Princeton orange body with a hefty ivory froth which slowly recedes to lightly-whipped egg whites. A thin wallpaper of lacing decorates the sides in an even pattern.

Strong hop aroma, packed with seemingly the entire citrus family. Light malt, a little pink peppercorn, and a light herbal note as well. Surpassed my expectations.

More malt on the palate, a touch of caramel, pursued by a heady wave of grapefruit and orange zest - sweet, bitter, and refreshing. A little bread crust and melon into the finish which is tart and fairly dry.

Medium-light bodied, creamy, and well carbonated. Very mild astringency, and just enough alcohol to prevent you from guzzling too quickly.

Fresh, and on-tap, this might be exceptional - I'll have to update my review next time I'm in B.C.
