3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"I like that there’s always a clever/funny message under the bottle caps. Mine says "That’s what she said". Ok, not that funny. Well, this one poured a dark amber colour with a thin layer of head, just a bit foamy. Has good lacing. Hops are strong in the aroma but mixed well with the malts. Also a bit of barley, grains, somewhat smokey. Flavours are also very hoppy but not as in your face as their Smashbomb IPA. Much more subdued and actually pretty smooth. Very good."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.355 bottle. Clear, light brown color and a medium, off-white head which leaves a basic lacing. The aroma is obviously hoppy but with a strong, malty, resinous backbone. Taste is bittersweet; naturally the bitterness comes from hops while the sweetness is somewhat fruity but also malty and caramel in character. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is long, filled with caramel, brown sugar, resin, and some wood. Overall a surprisingly good beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Arrow and Loon.
Appearance: Pours a deep amber colour with a finger or so of white head. Average retention and a fair amount of lacing.
Malt, grass and hops.
Malt, hops, hint of caramel.
Mouthfeel: Average viscosity and carbonation.
Overall: I can’t believe I haven’t rated this already. I like the good malt/hop balance on this one. While I tend to prefer the speciality beers that Flying Monkeys produces, this is a great go to beer available year round that always comes through.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tried at Edmonton Craft Beerfest 2015. Always enjoy Flying Monkeys. This one is comparable to their other IPAs/ISAs in the fruity, tropical citrus notes; but it also has a distinctive malt profile and a dangerous drinkability with the 5% abv. Delicious!
