Yeah, there's a lot of hop in there, but the bitterness and pine are the main contribution. I've grown to prefer those which coax out the nicer, fruity flavours of the hops.

Poured from a standard 473 ml Canadian pint can. It's Good, but not really great. Frankly, I expected a lot more hop flavor/bitterness with the 72 ibu. This beer is surprisingly smooth.

It is a nice citrusy malty IPA. Not exactly a IPA hoppy bomb. But it is good.

The other Flying Monkey (Juicy Ass) was much better IMHO. After that one being that unique, juicy and tasty, this one is quite an average with lots of malt and hop bitterness. Not BAD at all of course, quite well crafted that I can tell but somehow not an outstanding piece, quite like one out of many. Flying Monkey could do much better.

I thought this was inoffensive and generally OK. Had it in Buda so it was quite flat. Unsure if beer or location. Kept below 150 for said reason.

A: poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass, deep orange amber with a large off white head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear

S: heavy on pine and sweet caramel malt, citrus, grapefruit

T: pine up front with grapefruit and a hint of garlic, middle does not sweeten heavily, finish is more pine

M: medium with prickly carbonation

O: picked this up at an LCBO in Niagara on a whim, not bad but not as epic as the print on the can implies

I seem to rate higher than the average person (strange, since I usually score things lower than most), but my rankings are in line, so I will continue what I am doing. The colour was a good dark rich colour, with reasonable head. A good balance of the citrousy flavour from the Citra hops and the bitterness, with a clean, slightly bitter taste left over. Overall, I quite enjoyed it.

The words that do not mean beer is the label, too forceful. The beer is balanced, built with great skill and rpofessionality. I enjoy more convincing and complex beers but this one really is.

light and pale looking, medium carb, head mostly dissipates but a little remains for well over a minute.

smells very fruity, with some hops - smells delicious!

Taste is sweet, followed by a strong blast of bitterness. The after taste is great. This is really bittersweet! Its a really interesting flavour, very fruity and quite powerful. Its nice, the feel is a medium light thickness.
3/5 hb
Would certainly love to experience again!
