Ca$h MonyCa$h Mony
Notes: CA$H MONY is an Imperial IPA brewed with a wasteful amount of the very best hops we could secure. An ample malt bill is paired with a huge dose of pungent hop flavor. Citrus dominates the aroma, accentuated by notes of melon, pine, and tropical fruit.

12 oz can pours hazy glowing amber-orange color with a thick creamy off-white head that leaves a nice lace in my glass. Sharp aroma of grapefruit and pine, resinous sticky pine and grapefruit flavors , has a full thick, sticky and slightly syrupy mouthfeel that finishes with a lingering bitterness.

Golden body with lively carbonation; sticky, frothy head. A nice tropical fruit aroma; a little citrus, a little pineapple. A bold menagerie of pine and orange flavors; bitter with a sticky sweetness; caramel malt and simmering booziness. Heavy body; a bit rough and prickly on the palate; dry and sticky.

A nice imperial IPA, bold and brash in many ways yet having some subtleties with flavor pop-ups. Balanced with hop bitterness and malt sweetness and a good, tempered boozy note simmering underneath.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about fourteen dollars. Had never tried or heard of this brewery before. This is a miss for me. Mediocre taste, canned-on date unclear.

Here I sit, watching the prairie fireflies out of my hotel window, wondering why I brought this 12 oz. can (an extra from someone, thanks!) with me here to the middle of nowhere. No canning date. For shame.

Pours like a IIPA, like a gold doubloon with no internal fireworks going on. I like fireworks. Wish there were more here. Smells like pine bread smeared with orange. Interesting.

Ca$h Mony would make my top 50 list of all time dumb beer names; thankfully, the liquid does not follow suit. We like hops, & this has them in spades. Lovely bolt of bitterness up front, tossed with resinous pine & orange jam. The sweet caramel/malt is too heavy-handed & cock-blocks the malts. Bready & thick, this disappears way too fast.

Had too much mediocrity from this brewery; this breaks that mold. Good, solid beer.

A giant beige bubbly foam builds above a chill haze amber body.

Smell is ruggy cat piss, grapefruit, and buttery toffee. Detrimentally old school.

This one's dank in a bad way, with sticky, catty caramel and some tingly pine resin.

The smooth medium to light body has a bouncing tight carbonation that leads into a finish that is neither dry nor wet, but just right in the middle.

Poured into a glass from the 12 oz can, no date to be found as usual for 4 Hands. Comes out a nice golden color, lets some shadows come through. A big ol white head comes up and dies off at a steady pace, tons of lacing is still left behind in the glass. Nose is almost nothing but hops, with a flurry of citrus and pine that is just slightly followed by some malt sweetness and almost bready notes. Taste follows suit and man does this drink smooth. No heavy bitterness and no hint of the booziness except in the very back after it was already gone. Quite tasty, will buy more.

Welcome back to New 4th Hands of July Beer Sunday (Week 697)! I have been awaiting this entry for a couple of weeks. I have finally gotten to the point of looking at my backlog that serious action is being done. I have been running through a LOT of beer by dint of reviews/ratings/check-ins, but there is nothing quite as satisfying as a brewery horizontal (same brewery, lots of different beers).

From the CAN: "Pairings[:] Sharp Cheddar[,] Charcuterie".

Man, I totes dig these food pairings! I was poised to attend the Culinary Institute of America (C.I.A.) outta high school, but between circumstances, finances & blown chances, I enlisted inna Navy, instead. No regrets & my recruiter did me a solid by steering me away from being a cook since, as he put it, some of those stew burners are so brain dead, they actually have to occasionally be reminded to breathe! It was true & I would have probably ended up swallowing a bullet. As it was, I eventually landed in Supply as a Storekeeper (SK), doing repair parts supply as opposed to retail sales (although I did some of that, also). Some of my fave moments were as a Mess Crank & being able to stand in when the cooks (MSs) were short-handed. My gig is & has been baking, but of late, I have been relegated to slow cooker duty.

Onward! It is still hot as the jungle around here & I need a beer. It beCAN with a Crack! of the vent, followed by a slow, gentle Glug since I do not feel like dealing with a potential mess. Once deCANted, an in-glass swirl lifted both my spirits & just under two fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, tawny head with decent retention that left nice lacing as it waved bye-bye. Did I mention the heat & humidity? F**k! Color was on the cusp of Gold or Amber, so I asked The Gelt Gang of Mammon, Midas & Croesus for their opinion, but they were so spent from today's P/K World Cup FT games that they fanned me on. OK. That laves it at solid Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was a pungent mélange of CANteloupe, honeydew, peach, pine, the tropical suspects of mango, passion fruit, papaya and guava plus a honey-like maltiness and some fiery alcohol that went up my nose & lit my sinuses up. 8=O I need this! Phew! Mouthfeel was medium, but I expect more in & from a DIPA. The taste was like a liquored-up fruit cup! Ha! I am doing a gig as a day-to-day substitute teacher & sometimes, I will get leftover fruit cups in goody bags or as leftovers. This was like a vodka-infused fruit cup! Just a fruity medley with a big alcohol burn! Yeah, I've been drinking all day, but this was a revelation! Damn, but this was good. How CAN I parse out all of the sweet, fruity flavors for you? Let's start with the ones from the Nose & add white grapes, pear, peach, apricot & maybe a maraschino cherry. ;=) Forgive me on the last one. Do you like fruit salad? Do you like alkeehaul? If you said "YES!" to both, then you will did this little number the most. Finish was hot & dry, but still fruity. Phew! Getcha some & meet me inna alley, cat! It'll make you purr like a kitten. Meow!

this is totally over the top, but its awesome. a highly fragrant and oily resinous monster of an ipa, one of the better hoppy beers i have had from these guys really. denser than many but not new school hazy in appearance, with an orange honey color to it and not much head from the can after it has a moment to settle. the nose is straight tropical fruit, pineapple and tangerine and mango, even a little sweet in its oiliness before it goes a bit vegetal and bitter, but super fresh and attractive. some light grain sweetness here, its not too much and it provides nice balance and a little body, for how bold the hops are here, they arent out of proportion for what this is. huge guava and pine resin here, almost sticky as i drink it, and a definite honey note, floral and fresh, springy and for how robust it is, its not that heavy. fresh and complete spectrum on the hops, nicely bitter at the end, and just a really great recipe, on the edge of absurdly hopped, but they have built a good enough beer around all the hops that they work. 4 hands has been on a serious roll lately, and this one is next level!

A: A dark orange coloring with a feverish pitch of carbonation with has a 3 finger pearl white head sitting atop with a smooth and creamy texture. Long lasting visual, stratified lace band runs down the vessel with an intricate design and near full coverage.

S: Fresh grapefruit juice on the nose, wet and inviting with a smooth nature. Citrusy lemon with some sweet pineapple juice rounds out.

T: Sweet citrusy-pineapple flavor with some small hints of grassy pine hops. Lightly flowery edge of centennial hops? soon overcomes the initial sweet fruity start turning to a increasing bitter rate of grassy pine hops. Creamy tropical fruit interludes, avocado, with some banana. Increasing hop bitterness lingers on the tongue long after.

M: Creamy malt mouthful, medium malt depth, with an average rate of carbonation.

O: A decent ipa, tastes like a hybrid of some west coast hops and fruity east coast conan yeastiness. Strong rate of drink-ability, nice level of hoppiness and flavor vs bitterness is well balanced. Good first impression, kept my attention throughout the course of the drink with a nice range of flavors. cash, mony hops.

Pours a foggy orange with a finger of off-white head. NIce retention, but only a few dots of lacing left behind. Aroma is hop-strong, with notes of citrus, spicy and grassy. Malt notes are sweet, biscuit, and nutty. Aroma is dripping with flavor. Flavor profile is citrus, and spicy hops, and biscuit and sweet malts. Very well balanced, with little bitterness. Very flavorful and enjoyable. Mouth feel is medium-thick, with a smooth, filling feel. Overall, it's a well balanced IPA. It's fresh, but still providing great notes. Extremely well balanced.

Served in a 12oz snifter. Bottled 1/3/17, enjoyed 1/13/17.

Copper orange pour, not too much of a lively head but maintains great retention on the glass.

Initially the nose is pine foward, with hints of citrus and tropical fruit. Melon, mango and pears lead this one, with a subtle citrus pith of orange peel.

Nice piney foward taste similar to the nose. However the tropical fruitiness kinda diminishes, but the citrus is alive and well. Still getting subtle orange peel. Toasty malt in the back end.

Mouthfeel is an easy drinker with moderate carbonation.

22 oz bomber poured into an 8 oz glass (not all at once). Bottled 2015.11.27.

A: Pours a copper orange. Mostly clear, lively head that very slowly settles into a lumpy, foamy covering and sticky lacing.

S: Smells mostly of orange and melon.

T: Orange, melon, honey. Good biting finish from piney resin and biscuity malts.

M: Lively and effervescent. Body's on the thin side.

O: Pretty good but slightly unbalanced imo; malt doesn't quite stand up to the hops, and hop blend is a little short of harmonious.

This DIPA is much more my style, much more so than their War Hammer IPA. This has more of a fruity, juicy, tropical flavor profile with a nice aggressive and assertive bitter hop finish. The only downside to this one, and what keeps me from scoring it higher, is that it is fairly boozy as well. I get that it is a DIPA, but I have had plenty in the style that covers this better than this one did. It is still good, but just a little too hot for my preference. I will try this again in the future though, and perhaps a little fresher to see if the boozyness is less apparent with less time on it.

Would drink again: Yes
Would purchase again: No

Cloudy bronze with a short, dense pearl head. Scent of caramelized sugar, mango, pineapple, a little grass and soap. Resin upfront in the flavor with mango, pineapple, grass and caramel. This is the kind of flavor profile I look for in an Imperial IPA and its heirarchal relatives.

Pours a semi-hazed amber with one thumb+ of fluffy pearl colored head. Keeps a tight head, nice lacing & heading retention

S: Cakeyness, some mango & pear

T: Cakeyness. mango, pineapple, & grapefruit up front. Grapefruit, mango, green melon with pears & cakeyness as this warms. Finishes slightly dry with mango, pineyness & grapefruit

MF: Cakey, fairly firm carbonation, great balance

Easily the best hoppy beer I've had from these guys. Very worthy of your consideration, very drinkable

Pours a burnt orange color with minimal head that disappears quickly. The smell is a balanced fruit and piney smell. The taste follows suit, upfront with the pine and the citrus follows. You get quite a bit of bitterness hitting the tongue with a medium mouthfeel and decent carbonation. Overall I would say it is an above average Double IPA that I would drink on a regular basis.

22oz Bomber
Binny's - Orland Park, IL

Ca$h Mony is a golden libation, fitting, with apricot highlights when backlit. There's a touch of haze running throughout but the clarity is there. The head is slow to rise, white and clean, no higher than a finger and that's stretching it. The head leaves behind patchy lacing along the glass that will have to be scraped clean.

The nose is big and bold before I even get my face to the glass. Big resinous pine hits me first but tropical fruits aren't far off. There's a super clean alcohol note that seems to even dry up the nose and accentuate the pine forward hoppiness. Mango leads the way in the fruit department with apricot running a close second, and citrus peel bringing up the rear. There's a sturdy caramel sweetness even though the hops are showcased.

The flavor is big and bold as well. It's vibrant in the apricot department with the pine running from front to back. A little pineapple pops up in the flavor that I didn't pick up in the nose.Surprisingly, and welcomingly, the caramel sweetness is tampered compared to the nose. It's tropical and resinous. Big hop flavor for sure while the bitterness is easily manageable.

The body is also lighter than what the nose lead me to believe. The body sits right in the middle of the spectrum, weight-wise. Bitterness grows as I drink but not far above moderate. It's juicy upfront but dries out quickly on the finish with a touch of ultra clean alcohol fumes. This beer is drinkable.

This is a good beer from the folks at 4 Hands, probably the best that I've had from them as a matter of fact. It's highly resinous, old school style, but with a tropical twist. It's bitter, but not overly so, and it's an easy drinker that's chock full of flavor.. Good beer.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 1 pt 6 fl oz bottle on November 13, 2015. Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 fluid oz can on February 17, 2018. Look is amber gold, medium head and lingering lacing. Smell is malt forward with caramel aromas accentuated by pungent hop notes. Taste is sweet caramel with mild citrus, melon, pine and tropical fruit flavors. Feel is medium in body.

Almost has a sweet wort taste to it. Great head retention and a pretty deep orange color. Certainly a good offering. In my humble opinion, this is a hoppy amber more than a double IPA. I think in an amber category, it is a real winner.

Pours a crystal clear copper color with a finger of off-white head.

Aroma consists of tons of dankness, juicy pineapple, light mango, grapefruit, and tangerine from the hops. The malt is significant and brings a good amount of sugary/carmel sweetness. They blend nicely to form a dank, juicy nose.

Taste is quite balanced, just as the aroma indicated. Get a back-and-forth tug between the carmel, sugary sweetness, and toast from the malt and dank, fruity hops. The hops bring dank, grapefruit, light tangerine, pineapple, light mango, and lemon. There's a huge pine resin and grapefruit peel bitterness that rushes in on the finish to add to the sweet juiciness already there.

Medium body. Crisp and creamy with a slightly oily and syrupy finish.

This bottle has a little over a month of age on it, so I expected it to be as balanced as it was. That being said, the malt and hop character went quite well together. It made for a nice midwest style DIPA. I'm sure if this was fresher the rating would be a little higher, but nevertheless it's an enjoyable offering.

This one promises a lot of citrus and assorted tropical fruit, and I get a decent amount on the nose. I also pick up a strong malt backbone - this one seems 'syrupy' just going by the aromatics alone. On the plus side, the prevalent caramel character meshes with the fruitiness well. Unfortunately, the flavor isn't nearly as hoppy as suggested. Notes of caramel, brown sugar, and maple syrup hit the palate first. Hops do appear on the finish, but it's not a tropical fruit orgy. Instead, it's a generic finish of pine and grapefruit. This beer deserves some credit for having an interesting malt profile, but the hoppiness (the most important part of a DIPA) is a total letdown. On the palate, it's sweet and full, but not overly sloppy. Drinkability could have been worse here. Not particularly impressive - the combination of high 4 Hands bomber pricing and underwhelming hop profile means I won't purchase this again. Caveat emptor.

3.16/5: You think I ain't worth a dollar, but I still don't feel like a millionaire drinking this

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass. No obvious bottle dating.

Crystal clear appearance, with a very fascinating dark chestnut brown and orange body color. Plentiful carbonation with pin head fine sized bubbles, a little fast rising as well. Head is a creamy off white and just vanilla white color, with thin tiny bubbles and also three to four fingers tall. Very big and budging with island puck and thick clumping in it's makeup. Giant thick clingy chunks of lace as well. Real unique color, excellent head presence, just full of win here.

Aroma matches a nice mix of hop but more malt caramel qualities of sweetness. Hop angle burried, indistinct with maybe a slight bit of wood and mild earth tones. Slightly juiced but also could be syrupy as well. Comes off as firstly as a malty dipa so far.

Sugary palate and mild hop angles show the expected aromas off. Sweet caramel and mild floral and earth qualities. Soft bodied with an almost taffy like texture, but also syrupy feeling as well which provides a strange balance. Mild soft bodied malt sweetness which comes off as a thicker amber ale pleasantry, maple syrup, mild molasses as well.

Hop angle on this is not getting it done in the imperial realm, and actually comes off as more of as moderate sweet imperialized malt amber. Decent beer, but not going to be hanging out with the best of the Imperial IPAs realm unfortunately.

Pours hazy rusty brown with a thin finger of off-white foam.

Caramel, toast, citrus rind, and some faint booziness.

Huge, and I mean literally a huge blast of caramel (malt) upfront, the malt bill is so tremendous, the hops struggle to shine through.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, sweet, very sweet. Caramel all day.

Overall, I read the label and 4H's description of "ample" hops really makes me question their senses, and at the very least makes me think they should tone done this malt bill. Don't get me wrong, it's not horrible, but it ain't what they say it is and that detracts said score I give them.
