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....
