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!
