Initial aroma lacked any great amount of hops. Tasting followed suit, nice malt characteristic however lacking in overall hoppiness. Not a bad ale, although I think this can might have been subject to improper handling. Unsure as to whether I will buy again.

Thanks to richj1970 for this one!

A - Pours a dark copper color with a soapy looking head and sticky lacing, carbonation is active and constant.

S - The aroma is mostly caramel toasted malt with a hint of citrus and herbs.

T - Herbal caramel toasted malt with a bitter lemon and grapefruit finish. Malt up front with a little bit of hop presence and just the opposite on the back side. Moderate lingering bitter finish.

M - Full medium body.

O - Balanced.

I've had Monkeynaut twice, once in a can and then on tap. On tap it was definitely better. It's a darker IPA that kind of feels like a mix between an IPA and a Lager. It can be a little harsh on the pallet, but if you let it warm up just a touch it brings the more subtle flavors out. It's a good one to try, it's just not one of my personal favorites.
