Poured from 32 oz growler into tulip glass.

A: Pours a crystal clear light copper color with two finger white head with good retention and decent sticky lacing.

S: Grapefruit and oranges mixed with pine resin and a hint of banana.

T: Mostly citrus and hops up front with a hint of sweetness. Grapefruit, orange. Pretty big hop bitterness, but enough malt backbone to balance it out.

M: Light with good carbonation. Finish is dry and a little bitter.

O: A solid offering from STA. I like this one quite a bit more than their year round IPA, and maybe not as much as Gorillanaut.

Had on tap at The Nook in Huntsville, Al.

Monkeys Uncle is supposedly a batch of Gorillanaught that didn't hit the right ABV, and thus... created this new beer.

A: Dark orange with a golden tinge. Thick two finger tannish head.

S: Strong pine hop, with just a light citrus note. Malts aren't discernible, but the balance is present.

T: Hop bomb. Wow. Heavy pine. Really a bit overwhelmingly bitter. Malt is barely adding any level of balance that was found in the smell. With a little warming it gets just slightly smoother, but bitter and earthy pine to grass hops dominate the palette.

M: Medium bodied, bitter, and a bit dry on the finish.

D: Do you like hops? Do you like not being able to taste anything after one beer? This is for you. So tongue-twistingly bitter and hoppy that I must say it may be the hoppiest thing I've tasted. Great beer, but not something one could enjoy multiples of.
