104/504) beerbistro: Pale Ale by Sierra Nevada of California, U.S.A.: I was most struck by the fruity bitterness which gives way to a smoother, still hoppy, taste; nose is hoppy in a West Coast sort of way; 5.6%;
105/505) Corks at Longos, Toronto: Smashbomb Atomic IPA with Warrior Hops by Flying Monkeys of Ontario: **; the change of hops adds a lingering bitterness and I am not certain that the beer benefits; to me, it tastes different enough to give it its own entry;
106/506) Burger Bar and Tequila Tavern: Farmhouse Saison, a collaboration between Great Lakes and Amsterdam, both of Ontario: *1/2; was most struck by the up front pepperiness; saisons are very much in vogue of late; I am not convinced they work for me but I will give it a couple more tries;
The event at Corks at Longo's was a very hastily organized Cask Social. I found out quite by accident the afternoon of the session.
