Appearance: clear medium gold with two fingers of loose ivory head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: pine, citrus, caramel malt, light tropical fruit. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, short duration medium bitter finish. (3/5) I was a bit surprised by the way it foamed up on opening, lost a mouthful or two. Other than that, not bad. Smells a bit better than it tastes: it tends to the watery, so it doesn’t quite have the body to pull off the hop character. The flavours end up dropping off a little rapidly, leaving a little bit of an unbalanced lingering bitter. Quite sessionable, though. (14/20)

5/13/2010 12:05:36 PM Can from Whole Foods Hadley. Hoppy nose. Taste is hoppy, with some nice malt notes. Not too complicated but goes down swell. Warms up towards the finish.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2015 08.12.2014 341mL bottle #8 - CC/P49 Mystery Box Rating #1119 06.06.2014 - Can from @foxjunk. 5%, Golden amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is sweet piney, lemony, mild grassiness. Taste is a blast of citrusy sweetness, tempered by a decent punch of hoppy bitterness. Not unbelievably memorable, but a decent APA. Nice.

Confused this with the Red Racer IPA for Autism. As a pale ale it is a bit of a refreshing surprise. Lots of citrus notes and grapefruit in particular. Reasonable bitterness and a slightly sour finish. Needs to be cold to get the most out of it. Definitely different for a pale ale but good none the less.

Pours a hazy orange-copper with a small white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Tastes of citrusy hops, some citrus fruit and a nice long bitter finish.

i like the citrus heavy hops in here, but they fade rather quickly. sessionable and refreshing, just not too deep.

sulawang (773) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2015
Visual: Pours clear copper orange with a decent small creamy head, a small layer of retention, only a few streams, several loose and one tight-fast, sticky lacing. Nose: grapefruit tangerine hops (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: incoming hopped bitterness, orange oil Mid-palate: tart, (lvl-3)-sweetness, fizzy-creamy mouthfeel, (MAIN) yellow grapefruit, toffee malts, bitter peel hops Finish: light sour, grapefruit peel bitter hops, fruity citrus malt. Summary: Bitter peel hops throughout, not a whole lot of carry or length.

In bottle (advent calendar); didn’t really get to drink this one. Another RR beer that foamed up when opened and wasted 80% of the bottle ... not sure what is going on with this brand

Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours hazy golden with a moderate frothy white top. Aroma is citrus hops with biscuity malts. Taste is a nice citrus hop flavours and moderate bitterness with a strong grain profile. Nice everyday beer.

Very citrusy for a pale ale, which I like. Nice notes of some earthy pine bitterness, and lots of tropical flavour.
