On cask at Volo.

A - Orange/copper coloured.

S - Pine and citrus fruits.

T - Big mango/grapefruit start, wonderfully hoppy. The malt backbone is present, but the hops take center stage.

M - Very easy to drink, not an overly viscious feel, which I find with beers that are this hoppy.

D - This is the best IPA I've had out of Ontario. It's very easy to drink.

My favourite Flying Monkeys brew to date, an exquisitiely good hop explosion with an incredibly satisfying mouthfeel.

Pours with good amount of clean head that becomes a fine soapy cloudy when the head dies down. Stays around for the whole drinking experience. Cloudy from a lot of hop sediment specks, colour is a dark carrot orange.

You can smell the tantalizing Citra hops right away and the rest of the aromas are drowned out, I can only say that everything else just smells clean and inviting.

The first sip delivers a strong kick of the promised hops and the 6.0% ABV is evident just in the impact that you get right away. There is a lot of delicious citrous flavour in this as can be expected. The hops are central to this beer but are complemented nicely with 'Crystal' malt as the named backbone.

My experience is usually first citrousy malt combination followed by a cleansing hop punch that continues to the back of the tongue. I absolutely love this IPA and keep coming back to it despite all the amazing new beers piling up in my cellar that I keep meaning to get to.

I love burbing when I drink this beer, it tastes just as good bubbling back up as it does going down.

You can get these at most LCBO's for $12.75 for a six pack. Great value for one of Ontario's absolute best craft beers.

Smash Bomb Atomic IPA was an excellent beer with a great flavour. A very flavour forward beer, it hits excellent notes and finishes smoothly and with a pleasant aftertaste.

Not for the faint of heart, as it is a very hoppy beer, but for those who enjoy such a thing, it's delicious.

Picked up from the brewery on bottling day. Served at around 50 degrees into a Stella Artois glass.

A: Huge tan head from a fairly gentle pour. Beer is very deep amber. Retention is amazing and lacing is everywhere. A spectacular looking beer just like all other FM offerings.

S: The name is a little misleading. Not exactly an unbalanced hop wallop. This is a carefully crafted and well balanced beer, but with a huge amount of citrus and other fruit notes. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple, grape, plum, etc are all present. Malt gives a hint of leather and smoke.

T: Superbly balanced sweetness and bitterness. Caramel is actually quite dominate in the finish but with the lingering hop bitterness it is very nice.

M: I could almost consider this "thick"; a very substantial beer indeed. Slightly dry on the edges of the palate. Carbonation is fairly smooth. I'd love to try this on cask though, as I think natural carbonation would really be "da bomb"

Overall: this is the best we have in Ontario. Maybe I'm a hair biased... I don't care.

Pours cloudy copper. Nice foamy head with heavy lacing.

Smells of citrus and malt. Not strong smelling. Roasted malt smell.

Taste of citrus hops and malt nice little bite of bitterness on finish but not as much hop bite as you would expect from the name.

Light carbonation similar to other IPA.

Overall I really enjoy this Canadian IPA very sessionable almost to easy to drink nice citrus notes with piney bite but smoothed out with malts. Lots if different flavours going on this is excellent Ipa very well put together just the right amount of sweet malt and better hop delicious.
