From the can the pour is cloudy and sandy colored, the aroma is bright citrus and hops, the taste is bright citrus and a good balance of hops. The mouthfeel is thin. sulawang (1161) - - DEC 9, 2015

Part of the central city/parallel 49 advent calander. Pours a nice clear copper color with a thick off white head. Moderately carbonated. Aroma of pine and light fruit. Taste of pine, medium bitterness and hoppy. Very good. Overall delicious. Good job central city. cards04 (2811) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 8, 2015
Part of the central city craft calendar. A surprisingly nice beer. All about the hops. Very pine like and Resinous. Like drinking a pine tree. Ha.northropfrye (3628) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 8, 2015

A fantastic pale ale. Big citrus and tropical fruit aromas and flavors that are supported nicely by a malty caramel driven backbone. Great stuff.
Fruity resin and hop aroma. Well balanced hoppy and malt taste. Quite a nice APA.

Light ruby orange body with foamy white head and some nice lacing. Citrus aroma. Taste is mildly bitter, a little medicinal or metallic and not as flavourful as I was hoping. Okay.
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.

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. bulldogops (2507) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015

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. AncreSteam (16) - - JUN 6, 2015
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. ceason (30) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2015
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.
