COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American IPA The Cock & Bull Monk’s Habit uses a selection of New Zealand and American hops and British malts. This 7 % IPA bursts with a complex combination of hop aroma, flavour and bitterness.

On tap,Newmarket C/B Pours reddy/brown with firm head. Aroma of mango,passionfruit,grapefruit,high alcohols and caramel. Taste of grapefruit,mango, some green dry hop resin, a caramel malt background, balanced of with a firm bitterness and slight residual malt sugar. Overall a very nice beer, not really a IPA as the malt and residual malt sweetness balances the hops.

Tap at Beervana. Notes of toasted malts and grass on the nose. Earthy hops with a nice lemon zest presence in the taste. Quite a decent beer

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2011 Tap @ Cock & Bull. Clear, light amber pour with a short, off-white head leaving moderate lace. Pine, fruit and alcohol nose (with a hint of sulphur as it warms). Medium body and carbonation. Pineapple, spruce, toast, cardboard, sugar, grapefruit. Not as lightweight in the finish as many NZ IPAs and PAs, but still a bit wimpy.

Dudar (103) - Minsk, BELARUS - JUL 9, 2011
Amber, thin head. Nose grassy, piney, orange marmalade, some tropical notes. taste piney, slightly citrusy hops reinforced by noticeable alcohol. Some caramel notes, med-full body with lingering "green" bitterness. Nice beer, but not an easy drinkable one.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 22, 2009
On tap at Malthouse. Pours a nice deep red/brown, thin head. Aroma has plenty of citrusy hops, some dark fruit.
Flavour is quite bitter, grapefruity hops with a bit of toasted malt, thin body. A good hoppy beer, nothing Belgian about it though, so the name is confusing.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 (On tap) Clear, dark copper with a small, rough, off-white head leaving some laces. Fat, peachy hop aroma. Medium body with sweetish caramel and honey with lots of peaches and tropical fruits before a dry and hoppy finish. Very well made and harmonious beer. But there’s nothing much Belgian about it. 310108 and 060208

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 23, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2008 Draught at the Cock & Bull in Newmarket (Auckland), settled to a clear brown with a foamy off-white head. A beautiful flowery hop aroma with a good earthy malt background. A good clean and crisp palate, a great flowery and fruity hop flavour with juicy malt. Goes more dry and bitter in the finish. Good enough to drink in pints.

on tap at brewtopia06. i just assumed that this was an ipa, didn’t find any real belgian character. it was still good, though. deep amber colour, aroma of cookie dough and pine, some fresh forest fruits and a pleasantly bitter finish
