To add to the IPA list (currently Ballantine and Liberty),
I used to enjoy Labatt's IPA, it would have been around
1970-1974 that it was available in the US, at least in
Upstate New York. I don't know if it is still made,
but I haven't seen it in a long time.

Another beer that I could get in New York in the 70's
was Red Cap, and I don't remember the brewer (was
it Carling?) It was not labeled as an IPA but it
had a similar look and feel. I think I was buying
it when I could no longer get Labatt's IPA. Does
anyone else recall these beers of decades past?
