Can as Red Betty from Bine & Vine. Pours translucent gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is floral and light caramel. Med body, nearly. Flavor is lightly caramel, lightly bitter, and more floral than anything else. Might be a touch of citrus. Ok session IPA.

Pale golden white head, thin. Clear, looks very light. Not a big aroma, but definitely smell some hops. Really light and really flavourful, a great representation of the original IPA! Too refreshing and easy to drink.

On tap @ Tap & Barrel - Coal Harbour. Pale golden pour with white foam. Really grapefruit rind and grass driven. Some floral, potpourri notes, too. Lots of cracker. This is bone friggin dry. High bitterness as well. Lots of pine, grass, and grapefruit rind. Dry, cracker malt character. Alright. Was hoping for more.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottom of the can stamped "April 01, 2014."
Iím assuming "born on." This is only the second Central City beer Iíve ever been able to pull off.
I poured this into a pint glass.
The appearance had a semi-hazy golden orange color with a decent transparency about it. Light bubbles are seen rising to fill a one finger bubbly along the side foamy in the center white head. She dissipates at a nice pace leaving a fairly clingy lacing here and there.
The smell had a light floral to light spicy and even a light grassy connotation comes into play to combine fairly nicely.
The taste was basically the same with a decent sweet malt to pick up a crisp but balanced feel running over my taste buds..
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body and yes, this is sessionable. The carbonation was actually a bit kinder on the palate as I didnít get what I expected of an IPAís harshness but still created a fairly decent smooth effect that did compound a certain stickiness.
Overall, well, its a session IPA. Iím thinking Central City did everything they wanted to do with this one and Iím thinking I would have this again as its a flavorful "I.S.A." as indicated on the can.

12oz can. "Red Betty ISA". Clear amber color with ivory head. Floral, spicy, citrusy aromas. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Medium bitter floral, spicy hop flavors with tropical fruits, on a biscuit malt base brew____tasty.

Almost clear golden with a white head. Lovely hoppy aroma dominated by tropical fruits and citrus. Lightly sweet with lovely hops and a light malty background. Light to medium body with average carbonation. Another lovely low alcohol hoppy beer

355ml can. Smells great, but tastes like oily, resiny Mosaic hops and meaty malt. Not a fan at all. Iíll happily stick with their regular IPA instead.
