4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I have been waiting to try this ever since it was "banned" initially by the LCBO because supposedly it was too violent in the title???? Anyway found it today and did a sample pack of several flying monkey. This poured from bottle into pint glass. Amber dark medium redish white head. Aroma, boom, I get tons of things, spruce, grapefruit, pineapple so much. Taste is bitter off course, but not off the chart, this blends nice, you get like it says the grapefruit effect with the sugar, I completely remember having that as a kid and now in a beer! You get a creamy texutre and bitter finish, but just right. This is a superb beer, me is a liking!

Bottle at guirigall. Hazy orange small smooth white head. Mild aroma of malts and flowery hops. Flavor is malty and quite strong plain hoppy. Some caramelly sweetness too. Pretty straight ipa but the hops are just bitter no flowers at all. A little too much caramel.
