A proper I.P.A. this golden ale weighs in at an impressive 6.4%, and is so stuffed with hops, it will make your tongue tingle. This beer is dangerously drinkable. We also make a spanked version which has root ginger and chilli added to the cask which is just stupid.

This is a small brewery I really want to like - seemingly innovative beers from my home county and a down-to-earth twitter presence which suggests a passion for their work despite stupid hour days and child-rearing restrictions; I was therefore disappointed to dislike iBeer, the first of theirs that Iíve tried; anyway, on to Monkey, which is an amber beer with a thin white head; sweetish fruity aroma; a really good full, ripe citrus flavour - orange (mainly), grapefruit, then a fair whack of piney hops which recede nice and slowly in the long finish; soft carbonation, but far from flat (unlike my iBeer); itís excellent - would like to give this a go on cask, might break the 4 barrier.

Leighton (18711) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2010
Cask at the Pigís Ear BF 2010. Ruby-gold pour with a light film. Rich malts, toast and dark, citrus hops in the aroma. Medium to big sweetness, with some strawberry and citrus, nice malt tones, earthy bitters. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Good citrus and light earth hops in the finish, along with some very faint roasty, bready malts. Overall a solid beer.

Pigs Ear. Clear and somewhat dark gold beer. Semi dry palate. Sweet light toffee malt. Well balanced with some piney bitter hops. Really well joined up. Lovely sweet and bitter vibe going on. Semi dry finish. Could drink loads of this.

Quack-Duck (9164) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle from Darts Farm. Hazy orange-golden colour, creamy off-white head. Aroma and flavour of Victoria plums on a malty base with shy citrusy hints. Very good and moreish!

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Attractive golden color with an off-white head. The nose is quite sweet, with citrus and grassy notes. Thereís a woodiness to this nose that reminds of of a saison. The taste is nicely hoppy, with some spicy black pepper notes, the finish is long and sharp. The mouthfeelís medium, the carbonation lively. Monkey IPAís a nice, hop-forward brew thatís just a little grizzled around the edges.

Cloudy ale, with decent yeast sediments. Very fruity aroma, lovely hop taste. Melon, grapefruit and lime peel. Well worth a taste.

Cask conditioned at The Bell, Bath. Gold with white head. Malty beer with heavy dry grapefruit notes, definitely hoppy, agree with resinous, sharp throughout, really quite pleasant.
