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 Space Invader by Amsterdam Brewing Company (Canada) at The GarrisonLate check-in from the other night. Great beer as always. Amused when the wrapper peeled off & it was a Radler can underneath.
- Greg C. is drinking a Pilsner by Mill Street Brewery at Mill St. Brew PubPerfectly acceptable Pils. Front end sweetness lingers a bit too long, but hops eventually cut through for a good herbal finish.
- Greg C. is drinking a Wizard Wolf (Mosaic) by Bellwoods Brewery at King & DufferinMostly wipes the memory of the awful Simcoe/Mosaic version. Less hazy, more carbonation, and better balance. This is more like it.
- Greg C. is drinking a Half Way IPA - Across the Nation by Central City Brewers + Distillers at King & DufferinLacks the hazy appearance & lemony tang usually found in the style, but the wheat adds some lightness to this balanced old school IPA.
- Greg C. is drinking a Three Beasts - Across the Nation by Central City Brewers + Distillers at King & DufferinStarts with sweet tea before shifting to tangerine & grapefruit peel, pleasantly bringing to mind the classic US IPAs of a decade ago.
