Can. Pours a hazy pale amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty hoppy aroma with hints of caramel. Fruity malty hoppy citrus flavor. Has a fruity malty hoppy finish wit hints of caramel. omhper (25380) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2009
Bottled at pre-RBJG festivities in Kyoto. Hazy golden, minimal head. Perfumy apricot aroma. Mid-dry with clean, yet chewy crystal malt-like profile. Inviting, but a little sterile until orangey hops brings it to life. Finishes with medium bitterness. fiulijn (20992) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2008

Amber color. The aroma is simple, but the malt and toffee flavor is good, well balanced, with a nice bitterness level; the hop provides some resiny and fruity touch, more evident in the long final.
2012-08-07, cask at Alibi Room, as Red Racer Double Hopped Citra Pale Ale, 7-4-7-4-15=38
Amber color. Mild hoppy aroma, nice but not Citra-like, some sweat, lemon peel. Good malt flavor, lean, with pleasant balanced hopping, strong resins, hints of creamy Citra. A bit astringent in the end.

Golden color. Light but nice hop aroma. It has a pleasant caramel and hop flavor, not complex but drinkable. Strong bitterness.
Tap @ Malone’s. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are citrus, peach, flowers, malt and hops. mcberko (18441) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2010
355mL can, pours a hazy golden amber with a white head. Aroma of hops, citrus and floral notes. Flavour is a nice balance of hops and malt. Nice and refreshing, but unremarkable.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 Light amber colour and dead flat. It’s on cask, so it probably looks just fine in other formats. Toasty, woody anisey aroma. Balanced flavour - some great slightly pearlike estery notes along with well-extracted caramel malts and a subtle, earthy hop character. I could do a sixer of this.brokensail (16609) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 14, 2010

Light copper colour. Aroma is mainly limey, with a hint of grapefruit. Body is a little thin. Flavour leans towards sweet lime. Slightly bitter - less hopped than the Red, but there’s a lot less malt so it shows a bit more. Finish is dry, light. Re-sampled showed this beer as clean, with better malt character. Still light, but I may have underestimated the craftsmanship previously.
A: The pour is a cloudy burnt orange color with two finger’s worth of rocky white head that leaves some great lacing.
S: Mildly sweet citrus hops up front, mostly oranges, a light sweetness to the malt, and a fair amount of bread character. Pretty much what you expect from a pale ale.
T: Maybe leaning a bit more toward the bread side of things with a slight sweetness of caramel. The hops are again mostly orange flavored with a bit of an earthy spice note in there as well. The bitterness is fairly mild.
M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation. Decent, but nothing to write home about.
D: I think the IPA is probably a bit better. I liked this one a fair amount, and it works well as your standard pale ale. Ferris (16107) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle - Pale malts and some vegative hops. Clear dark gold with a rich white head. Tastes just like it smells in this case. Mellow and very English in style, not nearly the APA it claims. bhensonb (15515) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Can from Malt & Vine. Pours golden amber/light copper - or something like that with a slight white head. Nice firm citrus/floral aroma. Med body. Flavor is citrus/floral over some nicely roasted malt. Finish is firmly bitter. Just excellent. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2010
12oz can. Medium off-white head that mostly dissipates atop crystal clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, light lime. Taste is medium sweet, orange, some bread/caramel, light lime. Light-medium body. Perfectly decent APA, in a generic sort of way.
