86/1671) Home:  West Coast Style IPA by Mill Street Brewery of Ontario:  **1/2;  6.6%, 87 ibu;  brewed with barley, malted wheat and toasted oak;  pours opaque and cloudy;  fresh grapefruit nose;  floral opening, grapefruit finish;

This has proven to be a a somewhat controversial offering.  I am on the FOR side.  It is hard to tell how much is due to the audacity of the owners allowing themselves to be bought by Labatts.

87/1672) Home:  Red Racer Imperial India Pale Ale by Central City Brewing of British Columbia:  **;  9%, 90 ibu;  dry hopped with hops from the Yakima Valley;  brewed with Maris Otter English barley;  nose is green tea with hints of fruit;  strong bitter flavours, the alcohol makes its presence known in short order along with green tea flavours;  it is very nearly a bit too much;
