COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colonel Jibbs "Biscuit" McQueen was a star ace in the Wicked Witch’s flying 666th during the 2nd Yellow Brick Rebellion. Known as the scourge of the Emerald City Rebels, this brave Colonel’s nose for danger, unparalleled marksmanship and golden razor-sharp wings made widows of countless Lollipop Guildsmen in Arms. One day, a house came out of the blue and clipped Biscuit’s wings. Doomed to hop around like his less evolved ancestors, he sat in pubs drinking ales and rambling of building a flying ship that would return him to his former glory. We’d like to think that this hop-forward ale with a biscuit-y malt body finishes dry and is as balanced as the Colonel was before he went mad trying to return to the skies. Bottoms up fly boy. - See more at: http://americanbrewing.com/our-beer/flying-monkey-pale-ale/#sthash.zSIrqvp9.dpuf

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a ridiculously thick pillowy white head on it. Nose is light and slightly hoppy with a few fruity citrus elements coming through. Taste is a little bitter with just a hint of sweetness on the back end and some citrus elements poking through. Decent beer.

Bottle courtesy of HypoLuxa at Asahiya.. A lovely golden copper pour with a foamy beige head with staying power. A great tropical fruit hop bouquet wafts from the glass. Medium full bodied with a zesty mouthfeel like a spritzer. The taste is well-balanced between fruity hops, piney notes & biscuity malts. Love the label love & the flavor.

Bomber thanks to michaelinwa. Pours a hazy golden amber color with a small foamy head that fades to a very thin ring. Aroma is very nice. Nice mix of citrus, pine, and grass hops with a big bready and biscuity malt base. The hops are more subdued in the taste. Nice malty sweetness up front and a light bitterness in the finish. Big biscuity taste throughout with some nice citrus fruit and dry hops. Crisp finish. My kinda pale ale.

pours a cloudy amber with a slight amount of sediment, a small dirty white head that dissipates, and a good lacing. smell is faint, caramel, and malt. taste is smooth, caramel, malt, some hops, and a little citrus. ends thick with a slight hop bite.

As far as American goes, this one is a keeper. Very straightforward APA with enough malt, hop, and bitterness to keep a snob like me happy.

For the style, very beguiling, and one of the better ones. Quite complex -- solid malt backbone, but there’s some sort of slight sweetness -- fruity? citrusy? -- mixing in there, too. Hops of course are there, in balance, and ends with a satisfying slight bitterness.

Lagerboy (1510) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2013
Bomber. Gusher, clear light orange copper, big off-white rocky volcano head. Aroma is moderate floral herbal hops and faint malt. Lightly bitter floral citrus hop taste, herbal and grassy, perfectly balanced with light pale malts with very little sweetness. Lively carbonation, light-medium body, moderately hopped. Delicious and extremely sessional. Clean dry finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
