3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
March 30, 2013; 6.5% abv, 355 mL can, BBD: 05/12/2013, shaker
Hops dominate with sweet floral and fruity flavours: grapefruit and lychee. Pours amber with a slight pinkish tone. Head is big and frothy, off-white, well retained. Hop flavours as expected, but leaning more towards the
herbal/resin side of things. Malts are well balanced, toasty and sweet. Finish is resinous and refreshing. Light carbonation, medium to light body; overall refreshing. Serious alpha hops, overall quite refreshing.

can from my this year’s Secret Santa, many thanks robinvboyer. Dark orange color with medium off-white head. Strong piney hops in aroma. Taste, malty backbone, hops with citrus, grapefruit zest, resin. Long hoppy finish. Delicious.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big citrus and tropical rind aroma, with a contrasting pine element. Golden orange, nice residual head, weirdly still in an etched glass though. Very bitter, 80 BUs maybe, with a nice sweet presence underneath. Both of these features stick around for a long dry finish. Medium body, light for the style really. Combines all the best west coast IPA staples -dank, sweet, and biting. The best standard strength example I’ve had since Bell’s Two Hearted.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
De la résine de conifères, des agrumes sucrés et des herbes humides s’unissent pour créer un liquide à la buvabilité herculéenne. La finition est profondément amère, pas très sèche, plutôt mielleuse avec une touche juteuse surprenant. Très satisfaisant.

Couleur or. Arome délicieusement houblonnée avec de belles arômes de malt et d agrume et herbacé. Une belle équilibre avec l amertume en finale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beer pours a nice golden orange copper type color with a huge three finger slightly off white soapy head that is hanging around a bit. The aroma is delicious! Citrus, orange, lemon with hints of pine. Very dank. Almost tropical, but not quite. Some underlying malt sweetness on the nose. Nice carbonation opens up the palate to a slightly different experience than the nose. Nice citrus goes quickly from orange/lemon to grapefruit with pine. Middle of the palate is nice hints of bread. Then there is a nice bitter finish. Not too gripping, but the pine ramps up and lingers. Definitely draws you to the next sip. Body is nice on this beer. 6.5% is almost perfect for IPA in my opinion. Slightly dry finish after you sit for a couple minutes without taking another sip. *Side note, there seems to also be a slight mint quality behind the citrus and pine. Its more a leafiness on the nose, but contributes to the bitter on the finish. Maybe something the from the dry hop?Interesting.* This beer is listed on the brewery website as Red Betty IPA. Thanks to Cards04 for the awesome extra!
