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 Mystery Beer B by Nickel Brook Brewing Co. at King & DufferinStarts with sweet grapefruit, progresses through apricot, key lime, and creamsicle as the glass empties. Pleasantly soft on the palate.
- Greg C. is drinking a Mystery Beer A by Nickel Brook Brewing Co. at King & DufferinRespectable pub stout with notes of roast malt, cocoa powder, subtle coffee, woody hops. Medium bodied with a dry finish.
- Greg C. is drinking a Duchesse de Bourgogne by Brouwerij Verhaeghe at King & DufferinBeen a while since I’ve had one & I recall it having more prominent acidity. Still nice, with notes of port, cherry, wood, leather, plum.
- Greg C. is drinking a Whitney's Vintage Ale by The Collingwood Brewery at King & DufferinFresh hops come through in the front but are overshadowed by the sweet malt & honey core of the beer, throwing off the balance. Confusing.
- Greg C. is drinking a The Answer by Pint Pursuits Brewing Co. at King & DufferinClean, crisp, balanced, not complex, but every note of bready malt & herbal hops is right where it should be. An excellent Helles.
