93/3073) Home:  Ernest Salmon by Badlands Brewing of Ontario:  **1/2; a 6.5% American IPA double dry hopped with Simcoe and Amarillo hops; an American IPA, Saints be praised!; only mildly hazy;  little of the usual candied hop notes to the nose, rather tropical notes; flavours of pine and tropical; as close to an old school IPA as I dared wish for from Badlands;

Badlands supplies the information that Ernest Salmon, born in 1871, crossed a wild Manitoban hop with a cultivated English stock hop to create what we know today as Brewer’s Gold which is the foundation of nearly every high alpha hop variety.  They go on to reveal that Ernest Salmon made it to the mens' singles quarter final at Wimbledon in 1903.
