Canned 7/2/16 (I think?). Consumed 7/19/16 in Brooklyn (notably, after the can made the 2500-mile journey in 90+ degree heat).

A: Pours a hazy yellow reminiscent of pineapple juice. Darkens slightly in the glass to a murky dark gold; 100% opaque. Big pillowy white head fades slowly with thick lacing around the glass.

S: Grapefruit, lychee, guava. Candied peaches. Sweet, juicy tropical fruit. Bubble gum yeasty quality a la Tree House. Mouth-watering.

T: Can really pick up on the all-star combo of Galaxy, Mosaic, and Citra hops they’re using here. Explosion of tropical fruit at the start with notes of grapefruit, peach. Citra shows up here, but definitely takes a backseat to Galaxy, which dominates throughout. Sweet almost banana-bready malt reminiscent of Tree House and Trillium. Mosaic makes its appearance at the end, adding an earthy blueberry element to the finish.

M: Ultra smooth and creamy, this one drinks below its ABV (other than the slightest heat on the finish). It has a certain weight to it that adds to the juiciness. High drinkability is further enhanced by medium- bitterness and medium dryness.

O: This is my first Monkish brew and will certainly not be my last. It’s also the first beer brewed out West that I’d say has successfully recreated the Tree House / Trillium style—though I’m sure there are many more too ;)! While its hard to go wrong with any beer packed with Galaxy/Mosaic/Citra, I believe its the yeast strain Monkish is using that brings out the flavors so effectively and puts them in the upper echelon of hoppy brewers. Can't imagine what this would taste like with less than ~2.5 weeks and a cross-country trip on it. Very much looking forward to seeing what the future holds for these guys!
