Imperial Red On Red Collaboration Ale is described as follows:
The Canadian flag – red in the east; red in the west. Double Red. A perfect style for the “East meets West” collaboration born at the 2012 Session Toronto Craft Beer Festival between BC’s Central City Brewers & Distillers and Ontario’s Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery. This Limited Edition Double Red Ale has been single-hopped using the first release of the brand new “Mosaic” hops bringing out floral notes of Papaya and Guava, creating a unique flavour and aroma when married with the Pale, Munich and Three Crystal malts.
The first batch of Red On Red was brewed at Central City, and will be released soon in a limited run of bottles available at select private liquor stores in BC, and on tap at the Central City Brewpub.
A second batch will be brewed soon at Flying Monkeys, and will be released in Ontario sometime this summer, with format and distribution details to be confirmed.
- Greg C. is drinking a Fruited Dry Hop Sour by Collective Arts Brewing at King & DufferinTypically good quality sour from CA, although as can happen with multi-fruit beers, the flavours are a bit lost amongst each other.
- Greg C. is drinking a Trash Panda by Parallel 49 Brewing Company at King & DufferinMore murky than hazy. Flavour is a bit muddled at first, but some nice fruit notes - peach, pineapple, mango - come through as it opens up.
- Greg C. is drinking a Too Wound Down by Bell City Brewing Company at King & DufferinI question the Session IPA classification given the fairly low IBU, but this is still a more than acceptable pale ale.
- Greg C. is drinking a RoboHop Imperial IPA by Great Lakes BreweryA modern classic of the IIPA style, at least in Ontario. Strong malt base supporting a blast of citrus, pine & tropical fruit hops.
- Greg C. is drinking a Camp-Out Pils (Moonlight Kettle Graduate 2019) by Muskoka Brewery at King & DufferinThe Motueka hops are similar enough to Saaz to fit this excellent Pils, but also have a citrus zest character that adds a unique edge.
