Can. Clear golden-amber with 2 finger head that quickly disappears. Mild hop aroma. Taste is slightly sweet malt and mild hops. Although not appearing overly carbonated, it gives me almost a burning sensation on the tip of my tongue, which was not expected. Decent otherwise.

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 (706) - 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.

MunBro (789) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Very citrusy for a pale ale, which I like. Nice notes of some earthy pine bitterness, and lots of tropical flavour.

AgentAle (1043) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Aroma is a sweet maltiness with some earthy and clove hopiness. Taste is a sweet light maltiness with a fairly pronounced bitterness that is of citrus, clove and earthiness. Appearance is a clear orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Pours Clear amber with a thick white head. Nice hoppy aroma cascade and other pacific north west hops. Nice mouth feel. Thick and rich this is a great pale ale.
