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 an Ikinuki Ungespundetes Kellerbier by Godspeed Brewery at Bar Hop BrewcoGood lager with strong malt base but heavy hit of hops as well. Good body, full but not heavy. A pleasure to drink.
- Greg C. is drinking an After Hours: Raspberry Sour by PEI Brewing Company (Gahan) at King & DufferinSurprised to find this treat from my home province at the LCBO. Very good raspberry sour with natural tasting tart berry flavour.
- Greg C. is drinking a Breakfast Stout by Founders Brewing Co. at King & DufferinClose to 2 years old. A bit oxidized but still everything you expect from FBS - chocolate, coffee, tasted oats & more. Always a classic.
- Greg C. is drinking a Monks' Reserve Ale by Spencer Brewery at King & DufferinDoesn’t have the depth of a Belgian Trappist, but for a New World take on a Quad, it’s very good with strong malt base & nice spice notes.
- Greg C. is drinking an Extra Brut Ipa by 3 Brasseurs | 3 Brewers at The 3 BrewersHits the target for what I expect from the style - very dry, effervescent, aromatic, refreshing & quick to drink. Well done!
