3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at Campground Brewdown. Poured a thinner looking hazy amber with a smaller off white head. Aroma of harsh wet hops, hint of alcohol, wet burnt toast and some metallic copper. Medium body with average carbonation that is on the stingy side. Flavor was grains, dry hop comes and some grassy hops. Meh, okay.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from LCBO, pours a clear medium golden colour. A 1/4 inch creamy head that quickly dissipates leaving minimal lacing. The aroma is of yeast, pine, and grapefruit. Initially it offers a great Hops kick, with a nice lingering bitter aftertaste. As the beer warms up the citrus notes show through, I get the sensation of a stick of juicy fruit gum with a hops kicker! Very drinkable, and a great beer overall. This is my first sampling of Flying Monkey, looking forward to many more!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle. Poured medium gold colour with nice frothy head that lasted forever. Aroma....wow, very floral and citrus. Taste...wow again !! This one is hard. On one hand, the full grapefruit like bitterness was almost a bit too much for me. On the other, it was so full and so bold, you have to respect it and enjoy it. I love their names and their marketing. Lots of hops, and lots of flavour.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
slightly cloudy amber-orange colour from a bottle. 1 finger head that quickly thins to barely more than a film on the surface. lots of tropical, citrus, grass and piney hops with caramel malts definitely in the background. Medium body with a slightly soapy feel. Taste is very bitter and long lasting, again with the fruity, citrus and grassy hops dominating. The malts are there, but very muted next to the strong hops. Overall a good solid IPA

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Single bottle purchased from Co-op Wine & Spirits in Calgary, AB on 11/01/2012. Colour: Light brown, medium head. Nose: Bursts with hop goodness right out of the gates. Lotís of summer flowers and grass, as well as some distinguishable vegetation. Malt plays 2nd fiddle well with nice caramel character. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-high bitter, medium-light sour. Crazy soapy, citrus hops come pounding forward and simply donít let up through mid to late palate. Soap gets stronger as it goes. There is also some ash late as well. Very much an enjoyable hop blaster.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Intense pine, tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, citrus zest, and dare I say dill pickle dominate the aroma. Pours a very light amber with a strong long lasting head. The bitterness coats the tongue that leads to a long lasting citrus/tropical fruit finish. One of my favorite IPAís.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012-10-15, bottle from LCBO, Toronto, 7-4-8-5-15=39
Amber color, clear, with generous head. The aroma is milder than expected, but fresh and interesting, with fruity/resiny hops, acquiring a very light earthy character later. Lean mouthfeel, smooth; good caramel and toffee flavor; the hop is resiny and hoppy; the final is balanced, powerful and long.
2012-10-13, draught at Volo, 7-5-7-4-15=38
Dark amber color, creamy head. Nice aroma, caramelly, a bit creamy, and with some cheesy yeast. Good caramel and toffee flavor, strong presence of cheesy yeast, strong bitterness. It has some ending astringency, and resins.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2013 LCBO Six Pack - Looks and smells like it puts the Imperial in IPA. The taste will clear a room of Hollister t-shirts like a "Fat Man" went off.
