From Kamloops BC, The Red Collar Brewing Co has brewed up an IPA named just that, the India Pale Ale. From the bomber bottle this Okanagan beer pours as a golden-amber colour topped with a finger and a half of lacing head. From the beer comes a citrus and fresh hop bitterness with a nice malty body along side. The flavour is also crisp and fresh with a sharp hop bitterness that adds a lightness but also a distinct citrus spice to the mix. The Red Collar IPA is a well hoped IPA that has a medium body and a ton of flavour. IF this is what Kamloops is offering then it is time to make a trip to the Okanagan.
