Thank you Sammy for landing this one!
Pours a deep orange colour, nice white sticky head, nice thick lace on the glass. Smells hoppy, pine notes citrus grapefruit and a big chewy malt presence to balance it all out. Taste of lush malt, pine, citrus, lemon notes. grape like quality in the finish, dry like finish but not too dry, just right in that department. Good mouthfeel, slightly creamy, full body and as a whole quite nice. Very drinkable brew, right up there with the regular Red Racer nice addition of hops, good bitterness throughout. I could drink this all night easily, awesome stuff.

Poured from a bomber bottle into an IPA glass. Purchased for ~$9 at B's Craft Beer Lounge in Langley, BC.
Appearance - slightly cloudy amber with a nice, thick white head. Great lacing.
Smell - Big hop smells. Citrus, pine, tropical fruits, grainy caramel/toffee. Mouth-watering.
Taste - Very juicy. Big hop flavors. Maltier than the nose hinted, with caramel toffee and sweetness coming through. Not outshining the hops, though. Tropical hop flavors dominate the palate - mango, passionfruit, pineapple, tangerine with strong pine and grapefruit also present.
Mouthfeel - Medium-full body, good carbonation
Overall - Fantastic Imperial IPA. Big and juicy, on the sweeter side. Would buy it again and actively seek it out.

"Red Betty" Imperial IPA, 9.0%, PROD Nov 05 2013
L - hazy darker amber ale topped with a persisitent, frothy, ivory head that leaves a thick coat of lacing down the glass
S - huge waft of tropical, piny, and spicy hops fills the room; upon closer inspection, caramel, grapefruit, toasty grain, mango are also present
T - bold flavors with excellent complexity: caramel, bread, toasted grain, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, pine, super juicy; excellent blend of flavors!
F - fuller body, creamy, finishing dry with a lingering piny, spicy finish
O - I really wanted to buy this, but was hesitant because of its $8.79 price tag. Super impressed with this phenomenal DIPA from my homeland, Canada. Glad I splurged, it was worth it!
