Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has an orange/golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits, some sweetness. Taste is well balanced, hops up front, malts at the finish, a bit of tropical fruits. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Floral notes, light citrus and tropical fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Not an overly hoppy resinous IPA.

Ridiculously foamy out of the bottle. A chewy brew with sticky constitution and weak hop flavor. I get little or no hint of Belgian flavor here. Sweet caramel. Okay but disappointing.

From a Bottle brought home by a friend. Light Amber color seems fine. Smell says Belgian IPA with hops and some yeast. Taste follows, but both the hops and yeast are a bit muddled. Feel is thin, with some alcohol esters. Overall not a very strong showing for the style

Citrus on the nose and in the taste but not much of a Belgian flavor. Overall pretty plain and way over-carbonated.

12-oz bottle into Belgian ale glass

A - Every bottle in the 6-pack poured an extreme amount of foam. I had to wait several minutes before I could even finish pouring the bottle into my glass.

huge white head over a cloudy body of golden yellow, medium/high amount of visible carbonation

S - pine, citrus, Belgian yeast funk, banana, cloves, caramel sweetness

T - tropical fruit, pine, citrus, caramel sweetness, Belgian funk

M - sticky medium body, highly carbonated

O - Monk IPA is complex and enjoyable. All things considered it's enjoyable, but nothing spectacular.
