3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at tequila bookworm. Hazy copper/amber. Sticks nicely to the inside of the glass. Trademark big hoppy aromas - pine, tropical fruit. Some caramel malt. Sticky. Flavors reflect the aroma, decent balance but not as strong in the mouth as in the nose. I miss that chewiness that I get from some of my favourite IPAs. Slight minerality on a medium finish. Pretty good, but not quite great for me.

I generally dont drink alot of IPA. This beer is hoppy and fruity. The colour is a beautiful reddish amber. Very little sweet in this beer even with the fruity aroma. I love the unique flavour of this beer. Flying monkey is definitely a brewery of interest.

Pours amber in colour with a thinner off-white head and clear. Aroma is predominately citrus fruit and pine. Taste is bitter and mildly sweet through the finish. Light-medium body, average carbonation and smooth mouth feel. A pretty good IPA overall.

341ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden honey colour with a light tan head. Aroma is big on pine and grapefruit, caramel, sugar syrup. Very hoppy initially with big citrus pith notes, with a little caramel sweetness peering through. Slightly one sided, but Iím not complaining. Would benefit from a little more body, and maybe a little more sweetness. Solid stuff though.

This is simply an amazing beer. Citra hops very evident but not overpowering - amazing balance for such a bold brew. Not to be missed.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2012 (Bottle from LCBO) Served at ~12 degrees in a nonic pint. Pours an amber colour with a thin head that does not last. Aromas of citrus, particularly grapefruit, and other tropical fruits. Passion fruit stands out but there is more going on, not too much pine from the hops though. On the palate there is nice hint of acidity with the grapefruit flavour and a roundedness from other fruit flavours, a bit of pine but again not too strong. Caramel malts lend some sweetness but not a malt-forward beer. Hop bitterness is fairly strong though not bracing throughout, and on the finish it dries down nicely. A bit of malt graininess in the finish too. Light to mid-weight body, over-carbonated for my taste with a bit of a soda-pop taste/sensation as a result. Very sessionable IPA.
