COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly brewed for Inlet Brewing Co. (ex Jupiter Brewing Co.) by Orlando Brewing Co., now by Thomas Creek.

This unique copper-colored ale derives its fruity, slightly spicy aroma from authentic Belgian Abbey yeast. The subtle nutty and malty sweet flavors sing in harmony with the freshest organic hops vailable. Monk In the Trunk devotees are known to chant about its most intriguing quality, true drinkability.

Bottle from Liz. Pours amber with a creamy white head. LIght spicy aroma, hint of nut. Med body; foamy carb. It first suggests a pils, then nut and spice pop in. Pretty drinkable beer. Balanced.

Dogbrick (7627) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 01/06/2012. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt, caramel and mild hops. Light body with flavors of bready malt, caramel and lightly bitter hops. The finish is short and malty. Pretty average overall.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Bottled purchased at Total Wine & More (Naples, FL). Poured a small off-white very fizzy head that mostly diminiished. One ring of lacinig, transparent body and a copper hue. The flavor was crisp, hoppy, sweet, fruity, yeasty, some hints of malt, and spicy. The flavor was sweet, malty, hoppy, spicy, and nutty. The mouthfeel was very tingly and this is a light to medium bodied beer. Overall, this is an easy beer to drink and a decent flavor.

Bottle. Has a clear light amber colour. Not a lot of flavour in this one, some metallic-y citrus, and a little lacking in carbonation.

Fritz123 (931) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2011
A rather light pour, light amber color with a light head. Aroma is fine with a slight musty smell combined with maybe something citrus. The taste is light with medium carbonation. There’s not much to it overall. A hint of citrus and fruit. Little after-taste. Not my favorite amber however it goes does fine on a hot, Florida summer day.

ross (2075) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours out a darker red color with a tan head on it. Smell is fruity and contains some malts as well. It is pretty easy to drink with a little bit of a sweetness to it. Not bad, but not really memorable.

Bottle. Sweet and lightly toasty nose. Minty/floral notes - wha? Clear, pale transparent orange with a sudsy white head. Crisp and lightly toasty, has some orange peel highlights, subtle mustiness, and a quenching medium, juicy body. Really, really enjoyed, refreshing and different.
