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 Sleeping Giant by Amsterdam Brewing Company (Canada) at King & DufferinBottled Aug 2012. Mild oxidization, fig & raisin, toffee, vanilla, leather, slight sour tang. A bit past its prime I reckon, but still good.
- Greg C. is drinking a July by Burdock at King & DufferinCommercial description sums it up well. Very clean, some stonefruit sweetness up front, dry clove character in finish. Simple & good.
- Greg C. is drinking a Rhizome: Azacca/Ekuanot by Folly Brewpub at King & DufferinCarbonation seems lighter than it should be. Flavour has nice pineapple character, but is muddled, especially the finish. Not their best.
- Greg C. is drinking a Big Rock American Pale Ale by Big Rock Brewery at Liberty Commons at Big Rock BreweryDecent take on the style, well balanced and pleasant, good level of hops on the back of the palate. Not distinctive but perfectly alright.
- Greg C. is drinking a La Fin du Monde by Unibroue at King & Dufferin7.5 year old bottle. Obvious oxidization - low carbonation, quite sweet & slightly musty, lacks usual spiciness. But still very enjoyable.
