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.

Terrific IPA. Lots of hops, nice aroma with a hint of citrus . The hops don't over power the flavour but there is no missing them. Very drinkable IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can poured. Listed as Red Betty Northwest IPA. Gotta love these solid IPAs in a can that you can buy with pocket change. Pours a bright copper color with a ton of foam head and sticky lace. Mild orange, citrus hops aroma. A little toasty as well. Very tasty IPA. Quite impressed.

can: fresh aroma gives way to biscuit and caramel. nice fresh hops. low to moderate bitterness and perhaps a touch thinner than I like, but pretty good.

Drank from a 600ml can. Also poured some in the glass to look what the beer looks like. Lovely clear orange beer with much carbonation of tiny bubbles from the bottom. No head, but this is not a cin, I may not have poured enough. Smell is super refreshing! I get a lot of pineapple - much more from the can than from the glass. Curiously, the beer in the glass smells really dry. I get some fruits and alcohol as well, but nothing really interresting, I will git it a 3. Taste is less complex than the nose: I get fruity bitterness from the hops and a mouthfeel of carbonation - almost sparkling and mineral. Medium body, To me, this is a good beer but more interresting in the nose than on the tongue.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 473ml can from LCBO. Thanks Peter. Aroma: tropical fruits, pineapples, a little bit of pines. App: clear copper with small white head with some lacing. Taste and palate: light to medium body, resinous, light to medium bitter finish. Average carbonation. Overall: for some reason didnít expect much from this beer. I enjoyed it, could taste a little more, maybe more fruity, itís a bit watery which is weird for an IPA. It feels like it they only focused on bitterness instead of a combination of fruits/resin and bitterness. Finish isnít the best Iíve had from an IPA but overall a good IPA from Canada
