As Monkey IPA, but tinkered with. The addition of chilli and ginger as if your taste buds could handle it anyway.This is stupid, stupid, stupid.

Half at Market Porter. A nicely balanced hoppy IPA. VERY floral, caramel and eldeflower. Great for the spring and very drinkable. The hops were not insane and I don’t think the IBU was too high but it was a well balanced spring beer. Excellent conditioning. A massive chilli - pepper kick back.

jmgreenuk (7837) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is peach yeast and lots of hops. The flavour is medium bitter with a big chilli spice pepper hop light toothpaste palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A really unusual and interesting beer. Might be a little too spicy for some but it hits the mark for me.

Bottle from Utobeer. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are ginger, flowers, hops, chilli, elderflower and malt. Nice and fresh and not at all as spicy as could be expected.

downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Royal Oak, Bath 18/07/09. Amber with a tight white head that left rings down the glass. Same aroma as the Monkey IPA of spicy hops, oranges and sweet malts. Flavour of citrus and sweet malts. Where it differed from the Monkey was that the hint of pine was replaced by some hints of ginger and chilli in the finish. These were perhaps too gentle. The Monkey was preferable.

Bottle that I picked up at Vincent Montgomery Butchers, Wantage, Oxon, Saturday 22nd October 2011, consumed Saturday 29th October 2011 Pours light amber with a filmy white head. Warming with the chilli showing a little and the ginger apparent but a little less intrusive. A little flat in the mouth, citrussy, its not bad at all. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

On tap at the Old Fountain. Light haze on this gold beer, little white head. Palate is smooth with very mild carbonation. A little smooth malt. Mild orange marmalade and grapefruit hops. Touch of ginger and a whisper of apple. Finishes smooth with chilli heat starting to develop. Quite and easy drinking beer despite the spice but the chilli does linger.

Cask, Coventry BF 2010. Undiluted orange cordial aroma with fresh hops and a weak dusting of ginger. Balanced orange rind hoppiness, distant burn off the spices moving into cream and nuts. No alcohol. Balanced and pointless. Like it.

Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20100429]

Ginger slice nose with a hint of lemonade. Pours a hazy pale gold with a fluffy head. Flavour is intriguing - under hopped ipa meets ginger beer with a touch of chilli fire. Notes of lemongrass and lime are also present. Finish is spicy. I dunno, I think I quite like it.

Cask, Bacchus, Newcastle. Woahh!! Love chilli. love ginger in beer and the two combined produce an explosive flavour. A fiery attack on the nostrils and throat, warming, to say the least, with plenty of heat on the way down. Love this kind of experimental stuff, but not one to overdo....!
