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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Clear amber brown appearance with lots of brownish head that slowly settles down leaving good retention. Smell has a strong hint of hops along with citrus, fruit and caramel.

Taste is mainly powerful hops, with a strong hint of citrus and various fruit such as mango's and grapefruit, kind of tropical. It has a hint of bread as well.

Although the taste is heavily shifted towards hops, it is clean and the other tastes blend well together, barely taste the alcohol. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Aftertaste is a very bitter hop taste.

If you like hops, this is the beer for you. One of the best IPA's I've tried despite and worth the large price tag (cost $18 in Calgary).
