Imperial India Pale Ale (for Autism) – Red Racer Brewing (Dec 18, 2014)


Beer Advent Calendar 2014

Updated review to reflect new “Imperial IPA for Autism” special edition.
Updated again for the rebrand as Red Racer Brewing as part of the Beer Advent Calendar 2014

From Red Racer Brewing (Central City Brewers and Distillers) in Surrey comes the “Imperial India Pale Ale” this version is the Charity version “Imperial IPA for Autism” with $5 per bottle going to Autism research.  This beer is a award winning beer available in 650ml bottles.  The beer pours a deep amber with a white head.  The smell of the beer is of strong hops, pine, citrus, mango and caramel malts.  The flavour is fairly malty forward with lots of caramel malts with lots of fruity notes inducing citrus, mango, pine, resin earthiness and lots of hops bitterness.  The finish of this beer is both sweet and bitter.  the beer has an IBU of 90 and an alcohol content of 9.0% and packs a punch.  This is a very tasty India Pale Ale if you enjoy a nice bitter North West IPA’s.  This special edition bottle coming out in February/March 2013 is a great cause and should get everyone out to buy it!

Commercial Description:  Red Racer Imperial IPA is dry hopped with whole leaf hops from the Yakima Valley, combined with Maris Otter English barley, which is floor-malted in age old tradition. A long maturation ensures plenty of flavour, with strong aromatics of grapefruit, tangerine and mango.

Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows:Salty cured meats, big strong cheeses.
