4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This beer pours a clear golden color with a medium off white head that left some good amount of lacing around the glass. The aroma is amazing! I pick up citrus, sweet grapefruit, and pine. The taste is quite similar to the aroma. you pick up the hop bitterness right up front but it is not overwhelming and finishes with a sweet grapefruit and citrus taste on the back-end. The mouthfeel is on the light to medium side. The drinkability is quite high but you have to be careful with the abv. I wasn’t sure if I would be let down by this beer but I certainly wasn’t. It is truly a world class beer.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 The aroma is tangy with lots of fruit, like grapefruit and banana. The taste is sweet and strong with hops. Very well balanced West coast IPA.

Flaska Bishops örebro. Orange klar vätska. Kraftfull humledoft med citrus, barr och färskt gräs. Fin maltbädd i smaken toppas med fyllig humle med touch av grape, tallbarr, hö och lite druva. Rejäl och fin munkänsla med krispig beska i avslutningen

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear burnt amber color, moderately frothy white head. Pine, herbal, caramel malt, and perhaps a little citrus. Resinous bitterness throughout. Smooth, a bit oily, and leaves a somewhat astringent finish.

From a bottle, pours light amber with white head quickly fading to ample lacing. Very fragrant, lots of floral and citrus. Nice hop bite balanced with notes of honey. An outstanding IPA...

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lots of grapefruit in this one. Bitter citrus hops, caramel, orange, tart fruit and pine with undertones of bread. Well balanced and a dry finish. Lives up to its reputation as a world class IPA

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Maybe ts too cold, but there was not much of an aroma, but I did notice a hint of lemon peel. Definitely a good looking beer; amber body and slightly cloudy with lasting SUDS. Light on the palate. The taste is outstanding with something different than other IPA; almost a bit of smokiness to the hops. The hops are intense but not too overpowering. As far as IPAs goes, this one is up there with Bell’s Two Hearted.

Fat på Monks. Ljus bärnstensfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Doftar mango och nätmelon. Wohoo vilken beska! Mycket besk med stor sötma och fruktighet. Välbalanserad. Ruggigt bra ipa!

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2013 Pours hazy deep orange gold with a fluffy, golden-tinged head that settles to a finger and fades gradual-like. Wafts a wonderful sweet aroma that carries over into the front end of a sip. Floral hop notes and vanilla, caramel, orange and peach. Taste has powerful and complex citrus from sweet orange and lemon to bitter grapefruit. Incredible balance - this beer dances along your tongue. Pine hops and caramel malt in there too. Creamy mouthfeel. Bitterness is enhanced with warming. Outstanding depth of flavor and truly amazing balance between sweet and bitter. A world-class IPA.
