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.

From a 6 pack picked up at a Circle K in Bedford NH. Decent price of $8.99. Didn't poor in a glass so no call on the look as I drank it from the bottle. Mine had a B.O. of 10.11.2016, which is "bottled on" not "bummer over" date, but why not just drink it as soon as you can anyway?

My kind of IPA. More like the West Coast style such as Stone and Lagunitas, but made in ME. Good bitter finish, nice citrus hints, good feel leaving you wanting more. I am sure I this will dehydrate me like Stone does, which is good for my BP and another good reason to open one more....
