How is it possible I haven’t rated this yet? Strong malts balance the floral and tangerine hop notes in the aroma. Clear copper coloured body is topped by a decent, fine-bubbled white head that recedes to cover with great lacing. Thick sweet caramel malts are offset by medium bitterness but this definitely a malty pale ale. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Enjoyed on tap at Alibi Room.

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.

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 (745) - 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.

Pours clear yellow, aroma of hops and a bit of citrus. Strong hop flavour, has a good kick to it.
