I was never able to get my hands on this beer before Red racer pulled out of Alberta and everyone cracked this beer up to be one of the best IPA's out there. I must say that it definitely didn't dissapoint. Probably my favorite IPA(NA IPA anyhow) to this point definitely beating out Brew Dogs Punk IPA.

Next I went to Co-Opliquor to get my girlfriend some of "her" beer and much to my surprise there was one bottle of Phillips Double Barrel sitting on the shelf. This is my ultimate favorite barrel aged beer as this beer was initially aged in bourbon barrels and then matured in Chardonnay barrels afterwards. Phillips did this as a limited release back in the fall and to my knowledge it was long out everywhere.

cfrancis have you tried Red Racer before?

If your digging the red racer IPA then you would like

1) Garrison Imperial ( Imperial designate 100 IBU minimum )

2) Phillips Hop Circle IPA

3) Red Rogue IPA

4) Fat Tug IPA ( only in BC if your going that way )

5) Phillips Hopernation

6) Tree Brewing Hop IPA + the seasonal double IPA

7) alley cat Red Dragon double IPA
