16oz glass at the Howe Sound tap takeover at Beer Revolution Edmonton.

This beer appears a somewhat hazy, medium golden amber hue, with one paltry finger (it's a bar, so np) of tightly foamy off-white head, which leaves some decent melting iceberg lace around the glass as it hastily abates.

It smells of sweetly biscuity malt, a concentrated apple and pear fruitiness, somewhat bitter orange and grapefruit pith, and further floral, lightly perfumed hops. The taste is mildly bitter muddled citrus rind, bready caramel malt, a hint of waning drupe fruitiness, and more, natch, earthy, floral hops.

The carbonation is decently supportive, the body a hefty medium weight, and everyman smooth. It finishes off-dry, the mostly staid hops and stoic caramel malt sort of provoking a veritable sit-in.

A sort of underwhelming example of a 'West Coast' IPA offering from this truly west-coast situated brewery. The bitterness and crispness quotients are well below average, even if the overall flavour does well to recommend itself. Red Racer has nothing to worry about. Speaking of which...
