A - Pours amber in color, semi translucent body and an eggshell head.

S - Citrus/tropical nose, herbal and a good hop bitterness aroma.

T - Bitter through and through. Piney hops , herbal, slightly vegetable and a bit of maltiness.

M - Medium bodied/carbonation. Not cloying by any means.

O - It's decent but nothing really to make it stand out from the herd of IPAs already out there.

Poured into a pint glass at the tap room.

Straight to Ale Monkeynaut IPA

Pours a very nice amber color with a solid copper hue. Nice thin white head forms and leaves some slight lacing. Retention is pretty low with the head going down pretty quickly.

Aroma starts off with some nice tropical fruit notes. There are piney hop resins that come up and give the brew a slight sweetness. There is an nice grapefruit rind note that underlays the pine notes to this brew

Flavor starts off with a punch to the loudmouth. There is an explosion of bitter and citrus rind with some intense and full resinous pine. This is an absolute palate wrecker in terms of bitterness. There is also some underlain caramel malt notes that give the brew some background sweetness but its bitter till the end for the most part. A robust bitterness at that. Very much an east coast style with pine and some slight citrus dryness. Mouthfeel is medium light with some nice stickynees to it but a dry bitter finish. Earthy and grassy.

Overall I was quite impressed with this places IPA. Nice East Coast flavors and great bitterness.

Serving type: on-tap
