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.

With the most coveted hops on the planet at their disposal, there's really no other way to showcase them any more properly than in a big and juicy IPA.

Ca$h Money pours with a burnish orange tint against a surprisingly clean backdrop. As a creamy, cottony froth builds, so do the radiant citrusy fragrance. With hints of tropical, orchard and exotic fruit character, its first sip greets the tongue with a lush candied sweetness, redolent with honey, caramel and fruit punch.

And as the sweetness relaxes on the palate, the mouth becomes awash with fruit. Pink grapefruit, tangerine, nectarine and honeydew precede more esoteric tropical blends of pineapple, mango, kiwi and passionfruit. A tinge of lemon and a nod to lemongrass herb and the flavors pull together seamlessly.

Medium-bodied and semi-dry, the beer retains just enough malt sweetness to keep the fruit impressions seemingly branch-ripe, plump and teeth-churningly tangy. Dangerously refreshing and highly drinkable, the ale closes with billowing bitterness on the back palate with waves of citrus peel, fresh herbal grassiness, and resinous pine in after tow.

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.

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.

We split a bomber, pouring into our St. Bernardus goblets. It glows a golden pumpkin coloring and sports a one and a half finger tall head of creamy, reflective, soapy tan bubbles. This shows only a brief retention before simmering down into molehills of lacing. A thick haze reduces clarity, although no sediment accompanies this. Carbonation appears to be mild. The nose explodes with notes of soapy, piney, and citric hoppiness, balancing syrupy thickness of pineapple, mango, and papaya fruit fleshiness, pungent sweaty saltiness, biting lemon core bitters, honeydew melon, brown grassy manure sting, pale wheaty and crystal maltiness, soft but creeping ethanolic burn, warm aged white cheddar, and sweet bubblegum esters. The taste to follow boasts bittering soapy and herbal hop punch right from the start, but this quickly fades, blending into pine sol cleaner, green sappy grassiness, honeysuckle, peppery booze bite, dried thyme, grapefruit and lavender oils, caramel sweetness and pale malt roast, copper, savory ale yeastiness, old iceberg lettuce, burlap, algae, and fresh orange zest to pull you through the aftertaste for a revived lingering bitterness. The body is medium, and the carbonation is medium to high. Each sip gives nice slurp, smack, cream, froth, and pop, with friendly pull to the glug. The mouth is puckered in its entirety, with streaky astringency across the palate. The abv is surprisingly appropriate for the style, and the beer drinks back nicely, but slow enough so you can savor it.

Overall, boy were we lucky to stumble across this one. We were exploring a recommended store whilst visiting St. Louis, and had decided to pick up one beer from all the major local breweries. We had selected our 4 Hands offering, but then came across this up at checkout. A quick BA search revealed superlative ratings, so we didn’t fight all of the urges and the feelings. The flavoring shows incredible progression. At first, it hits you with intense bittering pucker, but this quickly gives way to tropical fruitiness of nectary hops, and citric hoppy sugars. Quite the abrupt change from the front of the mouth to the back, and it is wonderful. Maybe it’s just because we’re in Indiana right now, but the nose comes across an awful lot like those juicy Three Floyds hop bombs. It gives you the freshest savory sweetness to the hop profile, while blending so well with each of the beer’s other components. What an introduction to 4 Hands. Having no real prior expectations we were a bit blown away here, and would definitely say that this beer lives up to and deserves whatever local hype it has thus far garnished.
