Baldwin FishEYE PABaldwin FishEYE PA

Brewed by:
Kensington Brewing Company
Ontario, Canada

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Getting up early and dragging dead fish around all day is a tough gig. That’s why we want to pay homage to the hard working fish mongers down on Baldwin Street. This IPA is big, assertive and full of attitude…not too unlike the surly characters slicing and dicing today’s catch. A wonderfully floral, piney and mildly citrus nose comes by way of an excessive dose of American hops and British ale yeast. The big malt bill achieves a chewy body with a sweet finish. Meant to be enjoyed in moderation, this beer is perfect…anytime.

65 IBU

473ml can into nonic pint glass. best before oct 29, 2014. enjoyed on june 17, 2014

a: hazy burnt orange or amber colour with just over two fingers of off-white head. decent lacing

s: big pineapple and caramel up front. grapefruit, pine, and oranges afterwards. hints of banana?

t: pineapple, grapefruit, and malt are present all throughout the tasting. slightly tropical in general. shy pine, banana, and orange in here as well. a strong and lingering grapefruit bitterness concludes the tasting and dries the palate quickly and rather well. 65 IBU as written on the can sounds about right. the malt could take a bit of a back seat, but there's really nothing offensive here

m: light-to-medium carbonation, medium-ish body, slightly creamy

o: not your typical IPA but worth a try i guess. not something i'd actively seek out though

A: Copper orange filtered with no carbonation, 4 fingers of amber tinged head, some chunky continents-on-the-map-like lacing. The head unfolds like an inverted waterfall and is beautiful, in some ways resembles a nitro can though its not.

S: Orange, fruity, light pine, some red chili peppers, cough syrup.

T: Light fruity, melon, orange, pine, alcohol, cough syrup

M: Medium thick syrupy body, somewhat resinous. Low carbonation.

O: Quite good that would be better if chilled a little more, I’m having it at room temperature.

Purchased at the LCBO $2.95 for a 473ml can. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass.

A- Nice unfiltered IPA. Not much head at all. Cloudy good!

S- Pretty good. Rather subdued.

T- Not bad. Not great but not bad. Expected a lot more out of this one. Tried it in the past and it hasn't changed much. Pretty thin for an IPA even for a Canadian offering.

M- Pretty good.

O- Not that great but pretty good. Not something I would go out of my way for but that big 'ol fish eye reeled me in for a couple.

Food Pairing

This so so IPA pairs well with... Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. Nice whole wheat bread buttered on one side, hot pan, one slice butter side on the pan, Kraft slice, tomato slice, onion slice and the other slice of bread butter side up. Grill away!

Can: Poured a clear copper color ale with a rather large foamy head with average retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of dry caramel malt with light bitter hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by some dry caramel malt with some hoppy bitter notes that are not as powerful as I would have expected. Body is light with good carbonation. Too much dry caramel malts for its own good with hops that fell way short considering the style.
