Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Our first collaboration brew with Jeppe of Evil Twin Brewing (Brooklyn/Denmark) was so popular we decided to make it a series! Originally brewed and released in the summer of 2012, the mango apricot pale ale was the only thing we wanted to drink in the scorching Toronto heat. Released again in 2013 on the eve of the Summer Solstice, this fruity, hoppy brew symbolizes the bounty of summer harvests. Bank this warm fuzzy feeling (or beer) for the dead of winter, you’ll be glad you did.

On-tap at Bellwoods and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a crisp, clean, bright copper coloring with a thin, filmy, off-white surface ring of head. The nose is amazing. Smells like a fresh fruit salad. Mango and apricot make the perfect blend of subtle sweetness alongside hops citrus. Bravo! Flavors of tangy fruit sweetness dominated early by apricot. Mango sweetness builds as you drink, and relegates itself towards the end of the palate. Smooth and robust in mouth. The aftertaste is slightly roasted and bitter hopped, but still has a smooth fruit blend to it. Finish is smooth and slick, with a pleasant fruit linger. Very tasty, very well built beer.

On tap at the brewpub, into a pint glass.

Orange with a white head. Mild retention and spotty lace. Nose has a helluva lot of apricot and tropical notes. Sweet malt like character, and almost fruit candy in some regard. Taste has apricot and mango at the forefront, tropical fruit and a bit of citrus zest. Some sweet cookie dough-like malt flavours. Mild bitterness, while remaining relatively sweet.. medium body and on the lower end of things in terms of carbonation. A really delicious fruity (fruited?) pale ale.

On tap at Bellwoods during the launch. This is a pale ale flavoured with dried mango and apricot.

Beer is caramel in colour, opqaue, with a moderately-sized white head. Good retention.

Smell is faint but fruity. Mango is there.

Mildly bitter, with orange, mango and apricot. Bit of a grassy flavour. Caramel malt. The fruit flavour is not overdone- it does not detract from the hops or expected characteristics of a pale ale.

Medium bodied, moderate to low carbonation.

Overall, pretty good. Enjoyed the pint but didn't feel a need for more.

On tap at Bellwoods, 2nd day of release. Medium orange bodied, with a little white lace, virtually no head. Mild pleasant fruit aroma. Some up front hops, mango fruit mid-sip, and a little acidity from apricots in the finish. Fuller mouthfeel. Satisfying, good summer beer. Fruit sugar residual.
