Red Racer IPA is slowly becoming noticed among beer geeks in both Canada and the US, and for good reason. I was lucky enough to try this growing giant at the source itself in Surrey, BC. On to the beer:
It's orange in color, and there are some strings of lacing sticking around in the glass. There's a healthy amount of fresh pine in the aroma which excites the beer drinker for what's next.
Red Racer IPA is filled with hops. clean, crisp hops! It's only a little bitter, which is nice. Floral notes exists too. The malt is crackery/biscuity. It's also a little sweet, which the best I can describe is like fruit infused hops with a sprinkle of sugar. It's very smooth in the mouth, and is a pleasure to drink.
Red Racer IPA lives up to the hype. A delicious beer that any any hophead would be a fool to turn down. The crazy thing is this wasn't the best IPA I tasted at Central City Brewing during my visit; you'll need to read my Double IPA review from that same brewery.

Pored from a can into snifter
A: Nice golden color, beautiful head, and absolutely unbelievable lacing. (an additional .5 for the can)
S: very nice, fruity, sweet hop aroma, grapefruit, citrus
T: Hoppiness hits you first, but never overwhelming, fades into a very nice sweetness with the hops never really leaving the picture, very well balanced here, malty sweetness used just right with the hoppy bitterness
M: Medium to light
D: very drinkable, and a great example of the style
Serving type: can
