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 Fresh Hop Ale by Northwinds Brewhouse & Kitchen at Berkeley ChurchAt Fresh Hop Fest. Undercarbonated, so body is lacking. Flavour has some nice blackcurrant notes but very tannic in finish. Not very good.
- Greg C. is drinking a Local Hoption IPA by Niagara Oast House Brewers at Berkeley ChurchAt Fresh Hop Fest. Another one where experience from past years shows. Light, crisp, almost elegant in its balance. Well done!
- Greg C. is drinking a Back Forty by The Second Wedge Brewing Co. at Berkeley ChurchAt Fresh Hop Fest. Can tell this isn’t the first year they’ve done this - crisp & clean pale with really nicely integrated hops. Excellent.
- Greg C. is drinking a Caledon Hills Hoppy Beaver IPA by Caledon Hills Brewing Company at Berkeley ChurchAt Fresh Hop Fest. Comes across as more of a pale ale than IPA but still well made. Balanced, notes of black currant & candied citrus peel.
- Greg C. is drinking a Last Minute Is the Best Minute Pale Ale by Redline Brewhouse at Berkeley ChurchAt Fresh Hop Fest. Undercarbonated & lacking a solid malt backing, so the hops come across a bit harsh despite not being overly bitter.
