October 20, 2015

244/1518) Caffe Volo:  Maniacal Hop Shop American IPA by Great Lakes Brewery of Ontario:  **1/2;  6.4%, 70 ibu;  nose is sweet and citrusy, reminds me of Octopus Wants To Fight;  citrusy, a touch of Juicy Fruit gum flavour to boot;

245/1519) Caffe Volo:  Punch Buggy Raspberry Ale by Indie Ale House of Ontario:  *1/2;  5%; strong raspberry nose, nearly cidery mouthfeel;  fresh raspberry flavours but no wheat to off-set this like recent choices;  there is a tartness to this - it is nowhere near a sour but it is present just the same;

These were consumed in the after-glow of a concert by Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band at Massey Hall.  What a night!
