Profile

Smell

Deliciously fruity with some citrus notes on top and a touch of funkiness that gives it some attitude. There’s a hint of earthy hops in the background as well.

Taste

The taste is milder than you might expect, with the fruit and floral elements coming together in a nice balance. The overall taste is quite a bit flatter than you might expect, so let it warm a touch before drinking. The mouthfeel is mostly dry and finishes up with some of the fruit and flowers left behind.

Pairing

Get into a spicy cajun chicken sandwich with yam fries.

Sight

Pours a light yellow colour with a hazy body and low carbonation. A sticky head of foam pours from the can and slowly recedes to a thin layer on top.

Description

The Establishment began as the name a group of friends gave to their brew-obsessed buddy, who made great beer with a helping hand from all. But the 2013 Calgary flooding turned a home project into a swamp, but when the dust settled and the water-line receded, the space that was once a basement full of knick-knacks, snowboarding gear, and a home-brew setup was transformed into a proper home-brew system with room to grow unique yeast. The ball began rolling, home-brew competitions won and recipes perfected, until it gathered up a whole new head of steam and level. The original Establishment is long gone, but the spirit of the place imbues new digs and bigger brewing. Nearly a dozen beers grace the taps along their bar. The Sky Rocket is a New England IPA made with the singular hops of Citra for a clean, refreshing beer that bursts with fruity qualities. Serves well at 8°C and should be enjoyed soonish.
