L: pours thick, cloudy orange with a finger of white head that fades
S: huge tropical fruit juices, orange, pinapple, grape fruit. Sweet aroma but not sugary. Awesome aroma
T: big oranges with grape fruit on the finish. Not overly sweet but not bitter at all, an awesome balance.
F: Very easy drinking, thick and smooth. The finish starts to dry with the bitterness cutting in to balance the sweetness.

Canned on 1/03/17, ‘Year of the Fog’.

Pours a creamy pale yellow, a familiar color for those who have had anything from the Foggy series. Hardly any lace, with a nice lace of frothy white foam.

The aromas here are a combination of stone fruit, melon, and pineapple. Slightly tropical, but not as in your face as many other juice bombs of the same style.

A perfect melding of hop varieties here. More stone fruit, hints of passion fruit, and a pretty dry finish. Honestly a lot of similar qualities to a dry white wine.

Smooth, creamy, medium carb and medium body.

A true a Monkish classic.

Misc.: Crowled on Nov. 22, 2017

Made the stop at Monkish before a trip to Manhattan Beach for Thanksgiving. I was 23rd in line, but it actually moved pretty quickly. Picked up this, Xylophone Tones and a Tripel for my father-in-law. Board called it a “Double-dry hopped DIPA with Citra, Nelson and Galaxy.” I called it a New England Style with Citra, Nelson and Galaxy. Was really looking forward to it.

Poured a pale hazy color with one finger of fizzy off-white head. Average lacing. Decent retention. (Sight - 3.50)

Smelled Nelson, Galaxy and Citra in order. Also floral, peach blossom, stone fruit, melon, guava, mandarin, cantaloupe and dry pineapple. (Smell - 4.50)

Wow on the taste. So damn good. Nelson, Galaxy and Citra blended perfectly. Also apricot, peach blossom, stone fruit, guava, melon and passion fruit. (Taste - 4.75)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, juicy finish. (Feel - 4.50)

This was world-class. Probably the best New England Style beer I’ve tried. (EDIT: Statistically it was). (Overall - 4.50)

Canned 9/21/17; drank 9/28/17 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dull yellow/orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a small, noisy off-white head which quickly dissipated; no lace.

Pine, fresh ganja, grapefruit & dry grass notes in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Dry grapefruit & ganja flavors up front; dry grass & dry pine notes on the finish.

Dry, dry, dry; not really juicy at all. Drinkable, I suppose, but the worst of the fog series unquestionably.

L - Golden orange with murky body and less than a finger of white head

S - Bouquet of hop juice and tropical juice. Dankness, oranges, mango, peaches, grapefruit, white wine, sherbet, pine.

T - Flood of dankness up front. Onslaught of tropical and citrus follows. Great bitter bite with citrus acidity.

F - Full, soft, and creamy.

O - An example of Monkish being better than New England when it comes to IPA's.
