Originating as a cask-only version of our Tankhouse Ale, Tankenstein is a dry-hopped IPA with full body and matching bitterness. It is a perfectly balanced ale with caramel and biscuit malts complementing the dryness of US grown bittering hops but with a massive over-lay of American Cascade hops being added to the tank during ageing to “dry-hop” the beer and give it a wonderful perfumey character. Grapefruit and piney resinous tones are the main contribution of the Cascades and make this a truly classic American-style IPA.

750ml swing-top bottle from Central City; stringed tag says 30 Sept 2015. Some wax on the stopper but thank God not near as much as the last big bottle I had from Mill Street. Opened with a "pop", but carbonation and head were both minimal. Pour was clear amber. Grapefruity aroma, with some pine and caramel notes. Flavour reflected this, and was also slightly boozy. Solid mouthfeel. Nicely balanced. A good IPA for Ontario, and one I'd drink again.

Wax over flip-top 750ml bottle from the LCBO. Tag with a string, written 29 SEP 2015. Pours a clean deep amber colour with a light-beige head, good retention and some streaky creamy lacing. Big grassy nose over caramel malts. Even some hints of vanilla at one point, so does get better as it breathes. Same for the taste. Not liking the hoppy taste at first, but does get better. Seems not well-blended at first. Notes of oranges with the grass. I do like the Tankhouse, but this one is not for me. Not a fan of the hops and their balance in this.

On tap at Ottawa Brewpub. Pours thin layer of frothy off white head. Very thick lacing. Has a fairly clear amber appearance. Aromas are quite fruity. Flavours are a bit of hops, nice fruity notes. Bitter hops in the finish. Good balance of bitterness and sweetness. Has somewhat of a rusty bitter like aftertaste.

Even with a vigorous pour it doesn't produce much head. Not much lasts a few seconds and leaves a couple of dot's of lacing. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Flavours don't seem to blend well. Starts with caramel, toffee and butterscotch. There is a very late floral, grassy flavour. Just another run of the Mill Street beers.
