This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

The Exprimidor is a special little beer we made for Grand Electric, and yes the name is in Spanish. To me, Exprimidor sounds quite stoic, or powerful, like the name of a famous Mexican cowboy or a legendary neighbourhood character known for making the most tortillas in an hour, but alas both those speculations are wrong. In fact, an exprimidor is just a little tool that you use to squeeze limes, a lime crusher if you will, but please don’t underestimate the utility of this mighty invention. Should your life one day be in danger, the exprimidor can also double as a weapon, to swiftly knock out your nagging arch nemesis

3.54/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Bottled Feb 6, 2013

Clear orange in colour, with hints of gold. Moderately-sized white head. Fades slowly, some lace.

Smell is hoppy, though not aggressively so. Citrus fruit is the focus: grapefruit, orange. Perhaps a touch of mango. A bit on the faint side, but nice.

Taste does not live up to the nose. Citrus is there but muted, a bit more of a malt presence, slightly toasted flavour. Relatively bitter, but without a lot of depth of flavour. Surprisingly thin.

Light bodied, moderately carbonated. Thin.

Overall, a nice nose but a pretty mild beer. Nothing unpleasant about it but it is rather light on flavour and body. Rather dull.

Hazy orange, some tiny floaties kicking around, one finger of dense white head with a little lace as well. Smell is quite hoppy, lots of dry citrus here, some grapefruit and tangerine, a little bit of biscuity malt as well but still smells like quite the hop bomb, as it warms a bit of dank pine comes out. Taste is dry and hoppy, citrus and pine, grapefruit is easy to pick out but this is pretty muddy though and quite a mash up of flavours here, a bit of malt, dry and bitter in the finish. High dry carbonation, thin watery mouthfeel, lots to be desired here. This started off nice on the nose but went downhill from there, these guys are capable of far better than this, probably wouldn't come back to this one.

Brewed for Grand Electric.
On tap @ Bellwoods.

A - Poured a hazy medium orange colour.

S - Nose was decent with a a good bitterness accompanied by grapefruit, pine and orange peel. Not much malt sweetness at all.

T - Very one-dimensional IPA with next to no malt bill present at all. A moderate hop bitterness with some grapefruit and pine flavours. The overall flavour profile was very muted and this one completely lacked punch.

M - Light body. Dry and somewhat watery.

O - The first Bellwoods beer I have had that really disappointed me.
