From Red Bird Brewing in Kelowna comes their “Antipsipation IPA”. Packaged products like this can are brewed at Factory Brewing in Vancouver due to the fact Red Bird Brewing is a very small Nano Brewery. The beer pours a golden colour with a white head. The aroma consists of tropical fruit, citrus with some malts and floral hops. The flavour is of tropical fruit, citrus, grain, resin and a good bitterness hit. The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an IBU of 65. This is a nice West Coast style IPA and a nice change of pace with so many IPA’s being of the Juicy variety now.
Commercial Description: Ever celebrated a journey that’s gone off the rails? It was 1925 in Kelowna, BC. Anticipation was high for the city’s first train, and a civic holiday was declared! Alas, the festivities were cancelled when the train tipped near Brandt’s Creek and couldn’t make it to the party. Undeterred, a crew got it back on track… and when it pulled into the station the next day, citizens enjoyed ANOTHER holiday. When things derail, make sure you “cheers!” – preferably twice.
