3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
341 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours copper in colour, nice caramel coloured head., which leaves a small trail of lace. Fairly strong herbal, earthy aroma of hops, with similar taste, finishing strong with the hop hit. Drying mouthfeel, with lots of fine carbonation. Very drinkable. I was pleasantly surpised that the beer was this good, despite what feels to me like cheesy marketing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Beer Store. Pours a slight hazy amber with a small off white head. Nose is mostly caramel and citrus. Lightly hopped for a low level of bitterness. More grassy than anything. Light to medium body that is quite drinkable. A pale ale designed not to offend anyone.

Om livet smakade lika bra som en Flying Monkey Hoptical hade folk inte tryfferat sina liv med den spillning som hjärntvättsinrättningar som "Let’s dance" klämmer ut i lördagsgodisskålen. Å andra sidan hade den här recensionen blivit så otroligt mycket mer svårskriven. Beskriva smakerna? Ser jag ut som en poet eller? Drick, njut och håll snattran.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bière rousse, sur levure et où flotte une dense écume marquant franchement leverre. Au nez, un léger caramel, puis un houblonnage floral poignant. Elle est moyennement amère, peu sucrée. Elle est de corps étrangement léger, de texture aqueuse et peu effervescente. Elle se termine sur une légère amertume et de forts arômes.

Flying Monkeys Hoptical Ilusion......
Well I guess from the name it’s hard to know what to expect.....
Are there flying monkeys?.....no
Is the beer "hoptical"?.........not really
Is there any sort of Illusion?.....Not at all..
But it’s good beer!
Pours dark dark amber with a off white lightly sticky head. Aroma is floral, hoppy, some citrus, malty, burnt sugar, bread. Flavour is really pretty good, a fair bit of hops up front, some citrusy notes, a tad watery in the middle, some mild malty biscuity sweetness, and the some more hops in the finish. It is a pretty good, tasty beer, I just feel it seems a little watered down, like they were holding back. Still, I will most likely buy this again. Is it just me or are the craft beers here in Ontario slowly starting to get better?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle. Pours a dark amber. Off white head that disappeared quickly. Lots of citrusy (grapefruit peel) hops on the nose. Slight dark malt flavour, with LOTS of fresh citrus hops. A bargain for what it costs. One of the best Ontario craft brews around.

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."
