Beer Advent Calendar 2014
From Red Racer Brewing (Central City Brewing) out of Surrey BC comes the “India Pale Ale”. The IPA pours a golden colour with an off white head. The aroma of the beer is of pine, citrus, melon and floral hops. The flavour is of floral/bitter hops up front with lots of pine, resin and a citrusy fruity finish. The alcohol content of this brew is 6.5% and the IBU is 80. This is a very nice standard IPA. It will not blow you out of the water but it is a great 6 pack to have in the fridge for guests you like.
Commercial Description: A style of ale that was fashioned to survive the long voyage from England to India during the British colonization. Hop, hops, and more hops! This ale has an intense aroma and a long lingering finish. A beer for the connoisseur, this is the Brewmasters choice.
