Given a can in exchange for a can of Harpoon IPA, I think I came out ahead. From Tasting notes 5/30/10

A: Poured aggressivly into shaker/pint glass, Pours a dark copper, 3+ fingers of pillowy white head that settled to about 1 and then lasted thru more than half the beer.

S: Grapefruit smell upfront and maybe a bit of pine in the background, made my mouth water... I didn't get a lot of maltiness in the aroma

T: Big juicy, citrusy flavors, might have noted pineapple or not but no real Pine taste that I got from the Aroma. that finished with the nice (maybe biscuty, graham cracker) malt.

M: As expected Hop flavor coated my toungue. Felt good in my mouth

D: Really good, I agree that with a review below that this beer is dangerously drinkable. This in one that I could see having several sitting on my deck.

Poured into a tulip glass. Medium orange in color and very clear. One finger of pure white head with large sized bubbles.

Lots of citrus on the nose. Orange and grapefruit.

Lots of grassy type hops and orange citrus are in the forefront.

Mouthfeel is light, and refreshingly crisp.

Overall, a very approachable canned IPA. Not as good as the Caldera i had just recently but decent.

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

Pours a clear golden orange, nice creamy head, great lacing. Smells of peaches, grapefruit, juicy fruit, tangerines, oranges, touch of pine, slight bready malt. Tastes of a citrus blast of hops with just enough sweetness to pull it together. Good solid bitterness dries the palate with some lemon rind and lots of grapefruit. Good crisp carbonation, full mouthfeel.

This is a fantastic beer and an amazing IPA. Very citrusy in the west coast tradition. I've heard some comparisons to Pliny and they may be correct. Loved the big peach notes, worked well with the traditional citrus notes. Also loved it was in a can! Will definitely get some more.

Nothing better than a good IPA in a can! Red Racer IPA pours a hazy copper red with a foamy head that fades to a thin layer. The aroma is citrusy grapefruit and some resiny pine, with barleywine like hints of toffee. Grapefruit hits upfront in the flavor, but gives way long enough for some nice caramel maltiness to come through. The malt gives way to a nice heavy, resiny bitterness that lingers long after the beer is gone. It's funny now that I had to move back to New England (from Ontario) to get great beer from BC.

A: Pours a reddish copper, with a nice frothy and white head. Looks great for the style.

S: Picking up big fruity and floral hops. A bit of malt sweetness. Good amount of grapefruit aroma.

T: Great deal of bitterness, yet some sweet fruits shine through as well. Some peach type flavors. Grapefruit and citrus zest and pith. Good balance here.

M: Nice and slick, leaves a bit of a syrupy feeling after consumed. Leaves a large and lasting amount of flavor.

D: This beer is dangerously drinkable. Packed with flavor and a huge aroma. ABV is just low enough that a few of these can be enjoyed in a sitting.

Pours out a clear, amber with a 3-finger, white head that leaves quite a bit of splotchy lacing. The ample carbonation is clearly visible.
The smell is a really nice pineapple and citrus blend with a bit of sweet malt apparent at the end of a deep inhale.
The taste is much the same as the aroma but is quickly followed by a dose of bitterness that lingers through the pleasant appearance of the bready, sweet malt.
Mouthfeel is medium with nice carbonation.
Drinkability: This is hard to beat having great qualities to support this. Has great taste, not particularly high ABV, smells & looks good and comes in a can. I hope Philly can continue to get this on a regular basis. With Sculpin now coming in 12 ozers, and still my favorite, this will give a lot of people an excellent but difficult choice.

Pours a beautiful translucent amber. Head dissipates pretty quickly leaving minimal lacing.

Smells of citrus, grapefruit, and flowers. I thought maybe there were fresh cut flowers in the house. Nope, its the beer!

Tasted amazing! Beautiful mix of citrus and floral tastes. Usually there is a malt backbone but in this case the caramel malts were intermingled with the hops instead of being on the back end. Smooth isn't even the word. More like polished.

Mouthfeel was exceptional. The can talks about a long finish. You can say that again. I actually counted and it was 15 seconds. No alcohol burn.

Actually, this was my first craft beer out of a can and I had some preconcieved notions going in. But holy smoke! Not anymore. I freakin loved it. Huge thanks to tilkmelmo for this one!

12oz can poured into an imperial pint glass...

Pours a nice dark amber/reddish copper color with a bit of haze...a huge four fingers worth of creamy meringue-like beige head forms and lasts for a long time, some chunks of lacing are left behind...

Nice aroma of strong citrus hops, mainly grapefruit with a nice piny edge to it as well...a decent amount of bready malt adds a bit of balance to a wonderfully hoppy beer...

Taste starts with some aggressive bitter action, very piny and resinous...a few sips in and the brew starts to sweeten a bit, the citrus in the nose comes out a bit with some juicy fruity taste and a decent malt background to slightly balance this beer...but this one is definitely about the hops, and finishes dry and bitter...

Medium bodied with decent carbonation...slightly oily and slick with a very dry lingering finish...

Probably the best IPA I have had from a can...and just overall one of the best American IPAs I have had.Period.

355ml can. Weird that this one appeared on the US East coast before here in Alberta, when it's made one province over in the Lower Mainland...and a bit pricey at 17 bucks a six-pack.

This beer pours a clear medium golden copper hue, with two fingers of puffy, rocky, ecru head, which dissipates slowly, leaving a wall of cheesecloth lace around the glass.

It smells strongly of grapefruit and orange pith, pineapple, a healthy dose of pine resin, some mellow, lightly bready caramel malt, and a further grassy/floral hoppiness. Very, very enticing. The taste is more acerbic grapefruit rind, bready, somewhat biscuity caramel malt, some pithy tropical fruit, and more than a bit of green piney, floral hops.

The carbonation is moderate, quite lost under the intense and varied hoppiness, the body a hefty middleweight, and smooth as it could possibly be under these conditions. It finishes mostly dry, the hops still ceding no quarter to my taste buds.

A properly rendered West Coast IPA (still rare north of the 49th), in a can (points for novelty and convenience all around), adorned with a red-skirted redhead babe on a red bike (consistency in theme), and well, just freakin' yum! Can intense craft beer and six-pack occasions coincide? Yes, yes they can.

Well I must say I am still not a man free of prejudices. While living in California and become a self-proclaimed hophead, I found the idea of a Canadian IPA to be .. well lets say "odd".

Talk about looking like a fool. This VERY American IPA made in British Columbia is a show stopper and instantly made me happy.

A- Dark Golden Amber, Great head on pour and some decent lacing as well.

S- Hops, Grapefruit, Citurs and sweet. Delicious.

T- Delicious. Again a nice overage of hops but not overkill. Lots of citrus fruit and a lingering finish. A must have for any hophead and one of the best overall canned beers I have ever had. Amazing. I love it.

M- A little oily as expected from the high hops but finishes nicely leaving you wanting another sip.

D- If you are a fan of the style, this is epic. And in a can makes it a great go-to beer for a tailgate or bbq as I plan to do now that I have discovered it.

RESPECT BEER

Thanks to Stagger, for sending this my way via CanBif. Very nice looking, clear, deep amber bodied ale. Decent finger of pale tan head formed on a vigorous pour, and decided to hang out for a while. Looking pretty good...

This thing has quite the aroma going on too. Big hop nose of grapefruit and a touch of papaya. Some sweet caramel and whole grain aromas also present. Somewhat one dimensional, but thats pretty much the point and it is pretty nice.

Wow have to say that i was impressed with the first taste which was very quickly followed by the second for confirmatory purposes. This Red Racer is the real deal, a first class IPA, grapefruit hoppiness predominates over a nicely attenuated maltiness with hints of whole grain crusty bread and a hint of caramel.

Very nice mouthfeel. Nicely attenuated, helps accentuate the hops, and brings their resinousness and mild stripping of the palate to mind. Medium bodied and somewhat creamy in feel, for a solid mouth presence.

From a 355 ml can, came as a 6 pack. I like the logo, as I dig girls on bikes (plus the garters are a nice optional touch!). I drank my first 3 of these straight out of the can and they were fantastic.

Pours out a slightly hazed yet still translucent medium copper hue, tall frothy and chunky cream coloured head with good retention.

The aroma is noticeable the moment you open the can, a heavenly bombardment of intense grapefruit citrus that does not let up. Faint toasty, biscuity malt can be discerned but it is still overwhelmed by Cascade hops used to their optimum potential.

Toasty biscuit malt is still noticeable in the flavour, but then it's all a pleasant and contained hops tsunami across the palate, nothing more than an appetizing zip of grapefruit. I'd almost call it one-dimensional if I wasn't so delighted and satiated.

Medium-bodied, a bit slick and oily, also light on the finish which makes it deceptively quaffable.

My new favourite go-to beer, this is a great balls out hoppy American IPA, and I can't believe it came in a can. If you're a hophead then you need to snap this up as soon as you can!

12 oz can for 11.99 a 6 pack.

Pours a beautiful amber copper color with a nice tight 1 finger head that holds amazing retention and webs down the sides of my glass.

Scents are highly appealing with strong grapefruit rind and pine resin, slight malty backbone. Probably the best smelling single IPA ive ever encountered.

Tastes reflect the nose with a HUGE blast of cirtusy grapefruit and other tropical fruit, pine and a dank unknown bitterness keeps this lingering for a while. Very small malt backbone that presents itself a little bisquity.

Perfect thick full-bodied ale with prickly carbonation that helps bring out all the super hoppy goodness this IPA has to offer.slightly dry finish that keeps you coming back for more.

Fantastic drinkability at 6.5%, i would drink this everyday for the rest of my life if it came down to it.

Easily the best single IPA ive had to date. Has the hoppy taste of a DIPA with the convenience of lower alcohol! A++

A - Crystal clear copper colored beer with a thin off white head. Decent lacing for the small amount of head. Fairly dark for an IPA, almost amber.

S - Lovely smell. Huge citrus hop aroma. Lots of tangerines and ruby red grapefruit.

T - Well balanced. Taste follows the nose, with some toasty malt behind the hops. Definitely the tastiest single IPA I've ever had from a can, and one of the better ones I can remember, period.

M - Medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and just a hit of resinous slickness.

D - Downed the first can in about 2 minutes flat. This is a seriously drinkable beer. I'd bring a case of this to a BBQ in a heartbeat.

Great beer. Definitely a welcome addition to the growing number of fine beers in a can. I love a good canned beer in the summer, and you really can't beat this one for less than $2 a can in a 6-pack.

Poured from can into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark golden color with a finger of foam on top that settles after a few minutes.

Smell: Hops, biscuity malt and a nice aroma of grapefruit, pineapple and mango.

Taste: Bitter hops at first, followed by the grapefruit, pineapple and mango that I smelled and then the malty backbone. Very tasty beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a dry, bitter finish.

Drinkability: A very enjoyable IPA that is reasonably priced and very tasty. It's not all hops and it's not all malt, very good balance. I can see this becoming a regular purchase if not just me buying another six pack.

Lets see how my 1st Canadian IPA goes down. IPA going international. I love the concept.

The head on this is insanely excellent. Rises up like a Phoenix from the ashes. Smells excellent. Pine and citrus fills the nostrils.

Color is on the lighter side for an IPA, you can see through the glass, semi-clear, golden amber/brown, comparable to apple juice.

Tastes rich, can really taste the malty flavor, the hop flavor is there, not over-powering though. Not the most bitter IPA I've had, slight bitterness at the end, but relatively subtle by my standards. Definitely tasting the citrus and pine more than anything right now. Not that dry either. Good flavor, not exactly what I was expecting, but definitely a well crafted IPA, goes down smooth and tastes really good. I was expecting a bit more hops/bitter/dryess but I think the way they did it is great, and I wouldn't change anything.

A solid beer, I'd get it again and be happy with it.

Can into my pint glass.

Best head ever. Two fingers, perfect fluffiness. Amazing! Copper orange color with white glorious head.

Smells nice, peaches, pineapple, grapefruit, pine and the like.

Taste is nice. I like this IPA's malt bill, but the hops are too bitter (like they were added too early in the boil). In my day, I would love it when a beer like this torches my taste buds with hops, but this is just a bit much. It's not Ruination but for some reason the bitterness in this one just lingers and I don't love that.

Mouthfeel is nice and creamy.

Strong, very flavorful, and bitter.

A - Slightly more than a fingers worth of tightly packed egg shell colored head... Impressive retention... A vibrant glowing orange color... Loaded with swirling vivacious carbonation...

S - Surprisingly the hops don't dominate the nose... Actually quite a nice balance... Biscuit like malts... Caramel... Sweet citrus... A vague earthiness....

T - Exactly what I expected... A wonderful mix of hops... Some bitter... Some juicy and sweet... Sweet citrus... Loads of bready malts... Cracker... A touch of caramel... Everything works to gather well and adds layers of complexity...

M - A slight kiss of foam hits the lips first... Medium bodied... Sturdy... Terrific carbonation... A little bit of chewiness... Lingering bitterness on the back of the tongue...

D - A quite enjoyable American IPA in all aspects... Loaded with flavor and character... Also a quite sessionable 6.5% ABV... Much like the artwork, this a playful and seductive brew which I highly recommend and can't wait to pop open my next one...

copper in color with thick white head that fades quickly. The initial smell is strong of citrus hops but fades quickly as well. The taste is like biting into a centennial and cascade battered orange rind. The flavor is good but kind of weak and watered down. The beer is extremely drinkable and is what I consider a upscale sierra Nevada. Overall decent beer.

A- Pours an orangey-topaz with a large off-white head that settles down quickly.

S- When I first popped the can, I got a nice little whiff of hoppiness, but it burns off fairly quickly. The aroma is mostly biscuity/bready malt and some grapefruit. There is just a hint of mango and orange as well.

T- Lots of biscuity and bready malt just as in the nose. A solid grapefruit and orange presence accompanied with the bitterness on the back-end. Some cans are much better than others; some are way too biscuity and don't taste like IPA's at all.

M- Medium bodied. Good carbonation. Not real flaws here.

D- A nice drinking summer beer. Not quite as refreshing as I was led to believe, but still quite nice.

Overall, a nice IPA when you get a good can, but consistency is a little bit of a problem. I would buy this again though.

very nice. brunt orange with an off-white head that holds and leaves rings of lace as the beer disappears. nose hits before i get the glass to my nose. huge wafts of citrus, pineapple, mango, pine, caramel and a hint of biscuit. taste is all of the above in proper three-way bitter/sweet/biscuit harmony. simple, yet defined and three dimensional with a nice, sweet roundness and a hoppy finish that uses the soft carbonation to accentuate it. i love how this beer hits in waves. sweet, then sweet tropical fruit... and biscuit, then sweet-dry in the end when the tingle of earth and pine become evident. medium body that screams to be chewed. simply delicious and goes down way too easily. this will be a regular for me all summer long.

Pours a dark, slightly cloudy golden orange/tangerine color with golden yellowish orange hues when held to a light source and a two finger frothy yellowish beige head with very good retention, only slowly fading into a lasting ring. Soapy chunks of lacing left behind.

Sweet uber fresh citrus hop aroma with lots of luscious tropical fruit notes and subtle earthy pine. Hints of pineapple, mango, orange and lemon peel along with pine needle and a subtle toasty caramel and biscuit malt character in the nose.

Chewy medium body that is bursting with fresh sweet citrus and earthy bitter hops, along with a ton of tropical fruit flavor and a subtle malt backbone. The tropical fruit notes are really pronounced with hints of mango, pineapple, grapefruit and orange peel. There is also a bitter earthy dryness that keeps things in check with hints of earthy pine. Subtle toasty malt backbone with hints of graham cracker and biscuit provides decent balance without taking anything away from the delicious hoppy flavor. Although this beer is more complex than it seems, the hops are the star here and they linger throughout into a sweet yet dry finish. The ABV of this beer is very well hidden making it dangerously drinkable. I had to stop myself from chugging it down to fast. Highly recommended!

12oz CAN into a regular kitchen glass, looking forward to this one.

Red Racer IPA boasts a kinda bright orange with some shiny bronze shades within. A clean looking beer with no haze at all. Two fingaz worth of off white foam that is quite creamy looking and condensed. A bunch of lace on the glass.

The hops take up most of the nose with a big grapefruit bite and some pale malts to back it up with a sweet scent, slight caramel. Pretty bold and smells like the makings of a great IPA. Some small pine bitterness and hops on top of hops.

Tropical fruit on top of a nice malty layer. Grapefruit, pineapple, others, some bisquit giving malt. I'm really liking the balance on this, it's pretty much even. Some grassy earth towards the end going into a bitter pine like essense. This is a stand out IPA.

The feel is lighter than medium in build and a good amount of bitterness remains in the mouth for some time, I'm lovin it. Carb is just right not very high or overly crisp, I could drink this all day. I'm going on a camping trip soon and I think I just found out what Im bringing to drink.

If Canadians can brew a west coast style IPA that mimiks the quality over there, than why cant the east coast breweries do the same? I mean they all use the same equipment and ingredients right, maybe it's something in the air, I don't know.

Crystal clear with a light amber body and a thick white cap of rocky and fine bubbles. Sticky foam coated the top of the glass and lacing was left behind as the beer disappeared into my belly. Sharp citrus aroma, bright grapefruit and a bit of pine resin. Notes of tropical fruit appeared as it warmed a bit. Same in the flavour, along with some biscuit and caramel sweetness, some floral character, and solid bitterness that lingered long into the finish along with a bit of citrus/spicy hoppiness. Creamy carbonation, medium bodied with a bit of dryness, nice texture overall. This is a solid IPA and one that I really enjoyed.

Big ups to Jlindros for sending this along as an extra in a trade!

Comes in a rather cheeky green can adorned with hops and sporting a fetching redhead astride an old school bike that immediately makes me forget about Fat Tire. There's a red maple leaf on the can, an advertised 6.5% abv, and an illegible born on date on the bottom. Nice packaging overall.

A. This foams out of the can (???!) when I crack it, necessitating a hasty pour into my trusty Sam Adams glass. This can was refrigerated upright for days prior, so I'm not sure what this is about, but eventually I get it in the glass and it pushes up a crackling, big-bubbled 3 finger tall head that dies fast, leaving behind a clear, still, light copper ale. I resist the urge to make a joke about feisty redheads that lose interest fast, and move on.

S. Mmm, hops. Wonderful nose here, big (but not too big) citrus hop aroma expertly balanced with interesting and adequate malt. Picking up grapefruit, pine resin, semi-sweet malt and some sweetness. Hard to pin down, but rest assured this is Good Stuff. This is what real IPAs should smell like.

T. Surprisingly good! I can't recall any Canadian beers that were this hop-forward, but this is a winner all the way. As per the nose, a fine blend of sweet roasted malt and big, bold citrus hops works quite well together. Dangerously drinkable - I'm down to 2 inches left in my glass and I'm only half-way through this review!

M / D. Not much to say here - medium body, slightly low carbonation -- odd, considering how foamy this was at first - and boasts a fantastic finish, all low sweetness and wonderful, succulent citrus hops that are neither too bitter or astringent but rather fade away softly, leaving you wanting more. Grand stuff.

Red Racer was a real surprise from a brewery I knew nothing about. This can easily stand up to some of the the "classics" of the style, ie, SN Torpedo, Stone IPA, etc. British Columbia should be proud to have such a good IPA at their disposal, and I frankly would like a lot more of this. The best IPA in a can I've had? Maybe so....
