COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after Kensington Market’s (in)famous fishmongers on Baldwin Street, FishEYE is a bold and assertive India Pale Ale. We use 4 different varieties of American hops and a heavy dose of caramel malt to create a pleasantly balanced hop-forward IPA. FishEYE-PA pairs well with a burger, spicy Indian food and sharp, strong cheese.

Cask Days 2014 featured a "double cask hopped" version called Three Point Oh.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2014
Cloudy dark amber. Thin head. Aroma is a little bit of indistinct fruity hop. Taste is a balance between slightly orangey hop, leafy hops, and a rich maltiness that is fairly pronounced in its toastiness.

Lubiere (10490) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2012
a hazed golden amber IPA with a thin big bubbled off white head. In aroma, smooth fruity caramel malt with faint British hops, not bad. In mouth, a nice biscuitty malt with nice floral hops, a bit astringent, but nice. Cask at Ontario Cask IPA Challenge, April 21, 2012.

Sammy (8953) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
Cask Days 2012. Latest Kensington offering of higher IBU pale ale product. Bubbly head on orange body. Some orange citrus taste, not bad a beer, maybe better on tap. Medium mouthfeel, a bit of astringency. Decent drinkability for hopheads.

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2012
Tap at Toronto Underground Market. Deep amber pour. The nose is fruity with heavy notes of grapefruit and light resin. Soft kiss of caramel on the palate but it's nicely dry actually. Softly hoppy but has a nice mixture of grapefruit and some light estery fruit as well. Clean but assertive bitterness. Nice stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jercraigs (8091) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2012
2012-04-21. Lightly hazy, bright orange body, small frothy white head. 3+ Mild aroma, fruity, mild muddled citrus. 6+ Flavour is similar, mild citrus, orange and tangerine is lightly muddled, light leafy green hops. 6+ Smooth average plus palate, light carbonation. Decent, probably even better on tap. Cask at Volo IPA Challenge

DuffMan (7037) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2013
Can, shared with TylerDurden. Dark orange-amber. Aria is overripe peaches and earthy marijuana notes. Burnt caramel, soft peachy hops, moderately bitter finish. Pretty mellow.

mabel (6865) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2012
[4395-20120421] Cask. Fresh doughy pasta bread aroma has a hint of citrus orange. Slightly hazy, orange light brown body with a quick bubbly off-white head. Grainy light orange hops flavour has a bitter base with a mellow finish. Medium body. Easy to drink, not particularly memorable. (6/3/6/3/14) 3.2
(#26 IPA Challenge @ Volo, Toronto, ON)

blankboy (6286) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
Draught at Bar Hop. Pours a deep orange-copper with an average size long-lasting fluffy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Mild aroma of malt, grain, light resiny hops and some fruit. Flavour’s hoppier then the aroma suggests, slightly sweet too, with caramel malt and resiny hops and with a decent bitter, dry finish. Medium bodied. Quite enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2012
Draught pint at Burger Bar. Clear amber with a smallish fizzy/foamy off-white head. Leafy/resin aroma, tons of cereal grain, some alcohol. Taste follows, a bit of acidic English barley wine character, strong, malty and a touch boozy. Solid body and carbonation, longish dry resin bitter finish, a little warming - well done, Brock - much better than the early skeleton versions. I will be buying this.

Ferris (5009) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
Can - Bitter grapefruit, earthy and slight skunk with a caramel back bone. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Light bitter orange peel and a long bitter finish. Not that great.
