Notes & Commercial Description:
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.

Clear, medium amber, not a lot of head but it sticks around & laces the glass.

Big, hoppy aroma, with piney American "C" hops, tropical fruit, melon rind, and a lot of sweetness. Great IPA smell.

Bracingly bitter up front, with a piney bite only slightly softened by light citrus & tropical fruit notes that develop a little slower. After your taste buds acclimatize and the beer warms up a bit you notice that there's also a very substantial candylike sweetness, though with no burnt or toffee notes. Opponents of crystal malt in IPAs will not be pleased - this one is more in the East Coast style despite its geographic origin.

Mouthfeel substantial and somewhat sticky, with fairly low carbonation.

Outstanding. By far my favourite Canadian IPA thus far.
