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 Subjective Norms by Rorschach Brewing Co at King & DufferinNot quite sure how this differs from Normopathy, as it has similar floral and citrus notes, making it slightly off style but still tasty.
- Greg C. is drinking a Big Boot Hefeweizen by Big Rig Brewery at King & DufferinAn excellent and right-on-style Hefe that is perhaps a bit heavy on the lemon notes, but that's something I personally like in the style.
- Greg C. is drinking an In the Weeds by Kensington Brewing Company at King & DufferinLighter in body & flavour than I expect from an IPA, but still tasty & enjoyable. Just comes across as more of an APA. But a good one.
- Greg C. is drinking a NULA Mango by Burdock at King & DufferinVeers from quite pleasant to slightly off the mark and back again. Enjoyably tart, but mango is faint & artificial tasting. An odd one.
- Greg C. is drinking an ERO by Burdock at King & DufferinComing up on a year old but still in fine fettle. Vinous backbone, well balanced notes of sour cherry and other tart berry, mellow funk.
