Shipyard Monkey Fist IPA has a thick, creamy, off-white head, lots of thick lacing left on the glass, and a hazy, orange-yellow-gold appearance, with bubble streams and a descending cloud after one swishes the bottom contents of the bottle. Some tiny brown specs are seen floating about. The aroma is of a full, piney, bready hop oil, and the flavor is of pine, hop oil, sugar, bread, bread crust, light brown sugar, toffee, grapefruit, and light caramel. Mouthfeel is medium, soft, and slick, and Shipyard Monkey Fist IPA finishes dry, bitter, and fairly drinkable. Overall, this is an outstanding beer! Get some soon!

Poured a medium copper hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell was dominated by a sharp peppery hop.

The taste was likewise hop driven with forceful peppery and balmy piney hops. Soft buttery malts detected as well Thankfully the house yeast did not dominate here.

The mouthfeel typical of the style.

Overall an excellent clean IPA. Substantial in body and flavor. Likely Shipyard's greatest beer to date. The name is a bit juvenile however.

I like this. I really, really liked this. A sessionable, real, IPA. Aroma of hops, cut flowers. Color of copper and unfiltered hazy. Taste rises to the occasion. A malty start, with the bitters follow up. Does everything simply right. Good work.
