look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

"Step back in time for this holier-than-thou union of two great brewing traditions that are worlds apart. Kudos to Friar Spike and Little John for marrying a classic Belgian Style Tripel and a new age American Double IPA." Brewed in the style of a Belgian IPA. Monk's Revenge was released as a side project in 2009, and added to the "Monster Beer Tour" Lineup as an annual spring release in 2010.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Terrapin pint glass. Served north of 52º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a creamy cream-white head of a foamy consistency over a mildly hazy amber body with a mild, relaxed carbonation. Retention is slightly above average, lacing is light and thin. It's pretty standard. 3.5

(Smell) Aromas of biscuit malts, spiced bread, a pinch of fruity yeast esters, caramel candy. Balance is mildly sweet. Aroma is low potency. 3.5

(Taste) Bready malts, peppery spices, a touch of cracked grain, fruity esters and a moderate booziness. Notes of orange peel, coriander and white pepper are noticeable. A moderate low alpha hop provides a subtle earthy bitterness. 3.75

(Mouthfeel) Texture is zesty and mildly slick with a mellow creaminess. Carbonation adds some soft zest. Body is medium-high for the style, medium+ overall. Alcohol presence is medium+. The carbonation is a bit undecided, but it's not too bothersome. 3.5

(Overall) This may not be perhaps the finest Monster Tour beer in the Terrapin lineup, but it's pretty flavorful and presents all the characters of a Belgian IPA. A bit of aging may remedy some of the issues of harshness that the "Imperial" side of this beer presents. 3.75

Vertical Tasting Notes:

2012 (1 year, 3 months) Pours a lighter complexion, brighter body and thinner head. Aroma consists of more potent fruity esters, a pronounced peppery spice, and some mild phenols. Flavor has cleaned up a bit, fruity notes of grape, figs and dates are prevalent and the spice is more prevalent, clean and meshes well with the malt profile. Texture is thicker and creamier, less invasive carbonation. This is a pretty enjoyable vintage of this beer, not necessarily better than fresh but just as good.

2011 (2 years, 3 months) Pours a creamy white head, slightly improved retention over 2012 and a body tone more similar to the fresh batch. Aroma is similar to 2012, with a milder potency and cleaner spice. Flavor is equally clean, although it is now drying out. with even creamier carbonation, very soft. Despite the enjoyable texture, I think this beer is a bit past its prime, and the fading flavor reflects that.

Recommended Vintage: Fresh to 1.5 years

2013 Vintage poured in to tulip.

A - Medium amber with an orange glow around the edges and a thin layer of cream coloured head.

S - Bready and caramel notes with clove, banana, spice and lemon. Not much of an IPA presence comes thorough.

T - Banana, clove, Belgian yeast and a bready/caramel malt sweetness. Some lemony and citric notes.

M - Medium body. Creamy. Dry. Light carbonation.

A 12oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass. (To lazy to go get a proper glass) 2013 vintage.

Poured a darker orange color. Head was not very thick at all, but did retain somewhat throughout consumming, no mean feat since it took me a while to get through this one. Beginning to think high alcohol content and hot summer weather do not go together for me. But I digress.

Nose was fruit and bubblegum. Did get a whiff of alcohol as well, but only a faint one.

Taste & mouth were interesting, full, lively, leaving a boozy taste in the back of the mouth, which oddly enough did not hang around much. But as I said, was taking my time with this one.

Overall, a good beer, but I think I'm going to need to try another. I enjoy Terrapin beers, especially the Rye and the Big Hoppy Monster, so will give this one another shot when the weather cools down a bit to see if I feel any differently about it.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Brassy red-amber with not much to speak of in the head department. I couldn't get much to form, and I wasn't entirely gentle. There's a translucency to the surface from little foamy bubbles, and a ring matches circumferentially.

The first thing I notice, unfortunately, is a rosewater alcohol presence that spears the nostrils upon whiffing at it. I'm trying to place the meat of the Belgian-style yeast esters and the best I can come up with is a chocolate-covered cherry. But, I mean that not-so-quality milk chocolate that just does the job to make the cordial tasty. There's a reminiscence of stone fruits present, as well. Hops take up a hold with familiar citrus notes of tangy orange and grapefruit and herbal notes, also. Maltiness has a strange roast, albeit, a light one. I'll give Terrapin one thing; no other beer smells much like this one. And, so it is, Monk's Revenge stands alone in that regard.

It's like a Belgian dubbel or dark ale that's been watered down with a half-decent hoppy American Red Ale. More of that cherry cordial note that mixes in with toffee, candi sugar, grapefruit, herbs and sap from a half-dank hop profile, and overripe peach. Toasty and a little gruff, plus the booze still has a foothold. Missing here is that wonderful floral tone of many a good Belgian IPA. Monk's Revenge is holding onto the amber/red IPA too tightly.

Drinks with a medium-to-thin body and a heap of unusable carbonation. Feels a little coarsely rough, and too heady to speak kindly about.

This one's not in the league with the others. I gambled with this four-pack, and I lost a small stack. I don't want to dwell on it, but this beer did not meet my expectations. Just another obvious "miss", even though it ain't half-bad as a bolder and more exotic American Red Ale.

12oz bottle into a goblet.

Pours a clear medium copper with a thin white head. Some splotchy head retention along with a thin ring around the edge of the glass.

Aroma is quite Belgian-like with clove and banana along with bread. There is some tropical fruit mixed in with that but it is on the light side. Some floral and perfume notes.

Clove and perfume on the taste along with lots of flowers. There is a muted tropical fruit character along with some ethanol. Bread and toast is buried underneath along with a moderate bitterness helping to balance out the sweetness.

Overall, a decent Belgian IPA but it all fees a bit muddy. I would like a little more hop character and less alcohol taste. Nonetheless one to pick up should you come across it.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – Served a hazy orange colored brew with a one finger white head. The head has a moderate level of retention slowly fading to give a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – Overall the smell was on the lighter side. Some bready and biscuit aromas created a bulk of the light aroma with a small amount of floral hop. Mixed with these were some aromas of tropical fruit and an orange citrus as well as some smells of a yeasty and spice aroma. The spice was of a nutmeg and coriander smell producing a very , while light, Belgian like aroma.

Taste – The taste is very Belgian triple like in the beginning with just a touch more hop flavor. It begins with a bready and somewhat citrus sweet flavor. There is a good presence of a yeasty and banana flavor upfront that gets even stronger as the taste advances to the middle. Some spice flavors of coriander and nutmeg mixed with a bit of orange peel become more pronounced toward the middle of the taste. Soon however the flavor starts to distance itself from the standard triple once more peppery and hoppy flavors start coming to the tongue more toward the middle to the end. Some bitter grapefruit hop mixed with a floral hop take the taste to its end where a bitter and malty, somewhat drier flavor, is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side for the style and for the abv with a carbonation level that is average to just a touch below average. Both were rather appropriate for the style and were a good combination for the citrus, hop, and spice flavors of the brew.

Overall – It starts out very Triple like and then advances to being much more hop bittered. A little more bitter at the end then is quite complementing of the sweeter triple flavors, but interesting and quite drinkable none the less. Not bad and worth a try.

Pours a golden-yellow color with a weird, amber and copper wave of darkness sifting separately throughout the middle of the beer, providing a huge hazy and cloudy effect. White head plops on top of the brew and leaves a little bit of lacing on its way down. The smell was kind of muted and weak at first; light apple skins, crisp on the nose, very light clove and spice, white grapes, banana, with a hint of that good ol' Belgian yeast strain - although not nearly as powerful and commanding as it would be in an authentic Belgian tripel.

Monk's Revenge is much heavier and more flavorful on the palate than it was in the aroma. Sweet molasses and sugary fruits are the result of a tripel-type malt bill. Sugary and sweet with a solid foundation of spices; clove, coriander, mint, and a light bubblegum flavor from the yeast. The American hop addition adds a bitter bite to the brew - mildly leafy, grassy - a "raw floral" flavor, although the actual hop notes are muted a bit by the large malt structure. Slight rubbing alcohol flavor comes through upon warming, as well. Sweet and bready in the finish with a large dose of carbonation; medium bodied, not quite sticky and not quite dry.

They were aiming for a tripel malt bill with an American hopped IPA bill, right? It was a good attempt, and it's a tasty beer, but the drinkability wasn't too great - I dunno if I could have more than one of these. Sweetness is nice at first, but tiresome by the end. Not bad, but not great.

This beer is much more Belgian than IPA. Smooth and sweet with a mild hop tone to things; and I do mean mild. A slight touch of a burn from alcohol, which seems minimal in comparison to the 9.6% abv. Very smooth feel and very easy to drink. Nice brew. American brewers strike again with an excellent interpretation of a Belgian style.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a BrewDog cervoise glass.

A: Murky-clear straw yellow, effervescent and topped with a finger of tight head. Heavy lacing.

S: Soapy, piney hops. Touch of flowery yeast. Pretty flat and boring.

T: Very interesting! A huge, fruity, alcoholic base offers a foundation for citrusy hops. Unfortunately, this hops underperform. They are bitter, but not flavorful, instead delivering a tart lemony quality and a drying endtaste that mostly overshadows the excellent yeast strain. There is some tropical fruit that may be as much hops as yeast, but the musty-fresh spiciness is the best part of the beer.

M: Great! Crisp, refreshing, and well-carbonated. Balances a big and complicated beer.

O: Interesting, but not exceptionally so. Recommended, but I wish it were more Belgian-y and less IPA-y.

Lightly chilled 12 oz. bottle into a shaker pint.

Look- Clear amber with two fingers of off-white head, loose bubbles. Good retention, good lacing.

Smell- Rich, strong Belgian aroma backed by caramel and fresh herbal hops. Touch of nectar. Nice.

Taste- Much more aggressive than the aroma, lime on the sip followed some roastier flavors in the background with a trace of burnt caramel. moderately citrusy, overall impression of Mandarin orange. A little bit of funk and it's good to go. Lingering pine, honeyed tea aftertaste.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, light carbonation. Slick, not quite syrupy. Moderately boozy, sharper edge at the finish.

Overall- Well executed but fairly typical for the style- nothing new, surprising, or particularly complex. Worth trying, although a bit on the heavy side, a six pack would last me a while.

Pours a hazy lazy orange amber color. A lusiously dense white head sits on top with a slow fade, plenty of lacing too. Carboantion is fairly robust helping to prop up the head.

Aroma is slightly hoppy with equal amounts of malts yeast and some light funk.
Hops are fresh smelling and floral.

Tasty with malts hops and yeast. Sweet alcohol kisses the lips.

Prickly and dry with a bitter aftertaste.
My only problem is the high abv. It would prevent me from having to many and this beer screams out for more.

appearance was a golden cloud of deliciousness.

aroma was a mix of belgium and california like they had a baby of awesomeness with hay notes citrus notes and pine notes. i felt like i was on the farm in north belgium.

the taste was remarkably similar to the aroma with a rich characteristic of grapefruit and spiciness, with finish of pepper.

mouthfeel was proper with a lingering lace of butter and caramel that laid stayed on te pallet.

overall i thought this was a perfect beer for its style.

Huge floral nose. Thought the yeast added a great deal to this brew in terms of both aroma and flavor. Have never had any complaints about this hopped up belgian and hope I never will. Will continue to drink this beer at home and in bars when presented with the (all too rare) opportunity. Thanks Terrapin and keep on truckin'!!!

12 oz bottle. poured into long stemmed tulip. 2012 vintage.

A: bright orange hue. slightly hazed. head is very slightly off-white. retention isnt that great. some lacing.

S: a syrupy sweetness. this nose has a touch of hops, but it leaves almost as soon as the pour is over. this thing is a sweetness bomb.

T: a little bit of alkalinity in the finish. well even in the start. the syrupy sweetness makes up the bulk and almost the entirety of the palate. a little bitterness, but this one is all tripel over ipa.

M: mild carbonation on a big sweet body.

D: needs a lot of refinement. just a big sweet mess with a touch of metal. hardly any hoppiness in my opinion. pass from a brewery that has a lot of other solid offerings.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass. Liquid is a golden straw yellow color. there is some haze too it. I didn't pour the last little bit into the glass to avoid the sediment. Small white cap, mostly small bubbles and a little frothy. Goes away after a little bit, maybe slightly better than average lacing.

Smell is good, lots of tropical fruits, some hop presence and a little yeasty. I like the hop presence here, but I wish it was just a little stronger. Definitely plenty of citrus based hops, but like I said, not overly strong. Classic Belgian yeast present if that's your thing. Really well blended, smell is probably the best part of the beer.

Taste is a slight step back from the smell. Like many Belgian styles of beer it's bready and has those Belgian banana yeast flavors. Again some faint citrus hops present, pretty much all citrus in the hop flavor. There is a lot of bitterness and virtually no sweetness in my opinion so the balance of flavors is slightly off. Buuut I guess that's not the point in this style. Slightly hints of alcohol in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel I personally wasn't digging, but I think it was a decent representation of the style. The carbonation level was ok. Light bodied working its way to medium. Fairly aggressive bites and bitterness from the alcohol and probably the hops as well, not completely balanced. Overall seems to be a decent representation of the style. Happy to have tried it, Terrapin knows how to brew a good beer.

I was intrigued by this, and was wowed by the look and aroma when poured. Nice clear golden orange color with a big fluffy head on top. Aroma was sweet honey, some yeast, grapefruit, pineapple. Unfortunately, the flavor did not live up. Very little hint of any tripel dryness and yeast, and overly sweet. Not a bad beer, but I think this combo has more potential. Terrapin should try this again with some tweaking, and maybe a regular ipa rather than a double.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass at cellar temperature.

L – Pale amber color with a 3-finger white bubbly and pillowy head. Really nice retention as the head fades down to a 0.5 cm cap that lasts throughout. Pretty good lacing. Clear with a good amount of bubbles.

S – Grainy and bready malt, banana and coriander yeast, and a touch of earthy and citrus hops. Not a big hop presence, but they’re there. Most of the aroma is from the yeast.

T – Starts off sweet with bready malt, apple, and banana flavors. Taste progresses to spicy peppery and coriander yeast whose flavor lasts throughout the bitter grapefruit and floral hop finish that appears. Kind of a random assortment of flavors but fits the label of Belgian IPA.

F – Medium-bodied with good carbonation, a mouth coating and creamy feel, and a slightly bitter, moderately spicy, and very dry finish. Of all the flavors, yeasty spice lingers the longest. There’s a very subtle throat-warming sensation from the alcohol, as well.

O – This beer is very interesting. As far as positives, it looks great and hides the moderately high ABV extraordinarily well. Unfortunately, the more important parts of the beer – aroma and taste – are so-so. They fit the supposed mold of a Belgian IPA, but the beer just doesn’t smell or taste particularly good in my opinion. This is not a bad beer, but I won’t be searching it out again. I’m interested to see how other Belgian IPAs taste to compare to this one. Maybe I’m just not a fan of the style.

A: Half finger head on a deep golden hazy body. Lots of lacing.

S: very yeasty, fruity and herbal hop presence.

T: very yeasty, lots of grain, bittersweet corriander with fruits mostly sour melon, green apple and green grape. Bittering hops are well applied.

M: medium body and light to moderate carbonation. A semi dry finish.

Overall: this one is much not earthy ad herbal than others I have head. Very Belgian, this is a very nice brew.

A: Fluffy, cloud white head. Big bubbles clump together and stay put. Bright orange body, bright yellow hue, tons of carbonation rising to top.

S: Sugary sweet malts, funky spicy yeast, slightly soapy. Big herbal hops.

T/M: Oh yeah. Big juicy citrus, piney hop presence springboards off a solid sweet malt backbone. Belgian yeast is there yet subtle bringing all the flavors together. No alcohol presence, all that lingers is a wonderful herbal hop note.

O: 2010 was one of my favorites, '11 was forgettable and this '12 is back on track. Excellent, complex and well put together Belgian IPA, comparable to an Allagash Hugh Malone.

A - bright orangish amber with a nice, soft, dense cap of white head that has decent retention

T - bread, faint apples, herbal bitterness, pine, faint citrus, mild yeast and spice; alcohol in the finish

M - warm, crisp, medium bodied

I rather enjoyed this beer. It was a bit more complex than I had anticipated. The flavors were well balanced, and I thought it had a strong hop presence. I'll definitely pick this up again.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Cloudy straw color with a thin head that leaves very little lacing.

Not much in the nose, but that yeasty Belgian aroma. Taste lacks balance; hops are there for sure, but no extra fruity boost from the Belgian yeast.

Sharp alcohol bite at the end, and I can't decide whether I like it.

A tough style to do really well. Since Terrapin is a brew I can't get normally, I'll seek out their other brews in the future.

12oz brown bottle with a vintage date.

LOOK: Slightly cloudy light amber color, superb lacing down the glass

SMELL: Papaya, pineapple skin, melon rind, juicy fruit, medicinal phenols, peppery, cotton candy, nectarines, herbal tea

TASTE: Smooth, semi-creamy, moderate body, big alcoholic esters, juicy, bitter, bubble gum, powdered aspirin, oily hop, mild resin, ripe fruit, very warming, bitter phenolic end

Not as I remember, beers change ... palates change. Regardless this brew is flavorful but a controlled mess at the same time. Bitterness seems to be pulled away from the flavor and strikes quick and then pulls back and the alcohol character is a bit out of whack. Still a fun brew to drink.

Copper colored, clear with lots of carbonation which leads to very good head retention. The head was a foamy pure white!
I got some fruity and yeasty aromas along with some grassy notes.
Flavor notes of lemons, grass, fruit esters and yeast. It was so tasty and very complex.
Mouth coating and smooth, it's fruity at first then the bitter hops follow and it finishes with yeast flavors.
This beer is aromaticly and tastefully satisfying. I am a huge fan of this mix of styles. I want more and if I get more I'm not sure I will share.

Poured from bottle into pint glass at mellow mushroom panama city, fl. Bottle says vintage 2011.

No head at all...no lacing, and very little carbonation. You would think it would have at least a little personality for a belgian right?
Aroma is pleasant; orange citrus, belgian yeasty hops, and fairly malty. Taste is a bit disappointing...its too sugary and way overly malty. Its basically an overly malted ipa fermented with a belgian yeast...
Some banana and clove notes but flavor is lacking. It drinks easy for such a high abv but its not very tastey.
I don't know about this one.

Look is pretty Plain Jane. When you get up to smelling it, however, things change! It smells like a champagne or another something similar...it's refreshing like a steam room or something. It smells as if it's bubbling! There's definitely a mint or similarly "clean" component to this....

It's readily apparent why it's no longer a side project, it's a well-done tripel-sorta style with a lotta hops. It's consistently the same, Belgiany sort of spritzer-like zing with a nice hoppy (genuine IPA-style) batch of hops. It's delish! The feel is a little flighty, as the bubblies flatten to a finish rather than tickle the cheeks (it IS a beer). Haven't I seen this in Cabernet barrels? Now there's a side-side project (in a bottle) I could go for! Why not release that in a series with Substance Abuse (WnB in JD barrels)? That'd be awesome.
