Draught @ Brew City: This one pours a dark, clear, orangish golden color. There was a small light tan head and some lacing. Lighter nose. Faint hops and malts. the taste is somewhat bitter. Light pine and citrus. Medium bodied. Meh: IPA light.

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.
