Hoje dia de começar a saborear as cervejas do mês, algo que realmente tenho que admitir que gosto bastante de fazer. A apresentação da cerveja é bonita, mas bem comum para uma IPA, uma coloração âmbar bem escuro e brilhante, pra quem conhece o tipo é bem normal. A degustação começou pelo modo que uma IPA clássica tem que ser, um amargor considerável, algo que a IPA tem bem como característica, um sabor que puxa bastante pro lúpulo, algo que as cervejas mais comuns não tem, e que com certeza vai incomodar quem não está acostumado. O ponto forte da cerveja é a estabilidade do sabor, tanto em goles curtos quanto em longos, o sabor não é de se alterar muito, o amargor se mantém fácil, e pra quem conhece será de bom agrado, mas mesmo assim há uma certa dificuldade de manter goles mais longos, o sabor é um tanto enjoativo, merecendo saboreá-la bem em goles curtos em sem pressa. A porcentagem de álcool não é alta, mas é bem sentida, os 6,9% de álcool é muito próximo das cervejas mais comum, mas mesmo após 1 garrafa é bem notório o peso e a força da cerveja, algo interessante, mas que mantém a característica de saborear bem do que beber de qualquer forma. No geral, uma IPA clássica, com um altor teor de amargor, mas que pode ser muito bem saboreada aos poucos, o que traz um sentimento bom de satisfação, mas não perde o tom enjoativo em goles mais longos, o que pode estragar um pouco a experiência como um todo.

Pours dark orange caramel, ok scent but muddled, tastes a bit rough, bitter is to aggressive, malt is nice. Mouthfeel is thick, not what I want in an IPA.,

Shipyard Monkey Fist IPA Draft tasted at local mid-Long Island NY restaurant/bar in Feb. 2017. Chilled mug.

Aroma not initially apparent due to the cold temperature. Nice deep amber color with a good off-white head. Flavor was judged after some warming (about 45F). Very well balanced, robust flavor. Roasted malt initially balances a nice simple bitter hoppiness. Bitterness persists after swallowing.. Overall, a fine, more traditional, ale.
