This was an unexpected gift from longtime friends, UncleJedI and PurpleHatJoan, on our most recent get-together, this time in Madison, WI for the GTMW. Many thanks!

Nothing on the CAN of note other than the graphic of the screeching monkey. If Bitter Ameri[CAN]'s monkey was bitter, this little guy is outraged!

I am getting used to a spray from the Crack as I open a craft CAN, so this was business as usual. I employed an inverted Glug, resulting in two-plus fingers of dense, foamy tan head with great retention. The nose was big with pine hops, reminding me of the upcoming "Repo Man" tribute album on Ameri[CAN] Laundromat Records. I was a pre-order, so mine will come with a pine tree air freshener since you find one in every car. Color was a deep amber with NE-quality clarity. Mouthfeel was dense, viscous with a taste of caramel malt and pine hops on the tongue. Beautiful! Finish was semi-dry with the hops winning the battle with the caramel malt, but just barely. This is a really good AIPA and my thanks again for the present! Lots of nice sticky lacing remained. I would definitely give this some cooler space.

Growler obtained from unclejedi out of the blue. Thanks for the opportunity.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 3/4" beige head over the clear coppery amber brew. Head recedes at an average pace, with lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is fruity pine.

Taste is sweet upfront, start to see the pine from very early, which carries through to the close, with some fruitiness apparent in the middle and ramping down towards the close. Mouthfeel is quite smooth, and drinkability is very nice as well. An all-around good brew, glad o have the pleasure to visit this part of Alabama.

Monkeynaut IPA is fine addition to the ever growing Alabama brewing scene. It has a beautiful copper color. When you smell it, you know hops were involved in the making. The taste is a strong malt and hop combination that satisfies. This ipa can stand toe to toe with ANY ipa I've ever had. A very nice IPA from my neighbors up in Huntsville.
