3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Club. Clear copper/amber color, good bittersweet aroma with citrus (especially grapefruit) and resin, nice mouthfeel, moderate bittersweet flavor with fruit/resin notes upfront, bitterness most prominent in the finish. The hops side of the flavor could be bigger but this beer is still rather likeable--would be a good session brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ipa molto aggressiva e decisamente amara, con uníanima tutta americana. Molto buona, da riprovare, anche se non vi ho trovato niente di superlativo non Ť certo anonima.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours deep caramel in color with a thin white head that lingers. Very mild hop aroma over mild carbonation. A nice ipa that is reasonably aggressive but drinkable. Some mild complexity.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle while vacationing in Clearwater, FL. Pours a golden amber color with a thick white head into a snifter. Big aroma of hops....wet grass, fresh cut hay field, pine, pine resin, must. The taste is very powerful hops with pine, resin, must, weeds, and a malty presence. I found it very skunky, musty, and somewhat unbalanced. Very bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Not my ideal IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2014 Pours amber/copper with thick foamy head. Smells sweet and lightly hoppy. Moderate hoppy taste with a creamy hop finish. A rather smooth Ipa overall.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A 6.9 percenter. Pours a nice dark tangerine colour with a white head that dissipates quickly to a thin surface head. Leaves some light lacing on the glass when drunk. On the nose Iím getting less citrus than I expected. Some mint, some leafy greens, a hint of caramel and some tea. On the palate, definitely more tea. A very slight bitterness on the swallow. Hoppy dryness. No sweetness. Iíd buy this again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A nice dark amber body with a beige head that had excellent retention and nice lace. Nice caramel malts. Mostly grapefruit hops on the nose, there was a mix of pine and floral qualities. There was also a hint of baby powder. Flavor had good balance the grapefruit hops were restrained and the pine hops were firm enough. A nice bitterness in the aftertaste. A nice dry finish.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
BITTER. The ibuís in this beer really stand out, and man that aftertaste is strong. Now I usually like my beers on the strong side, but monkey fist is damn near unpalatable. Will not drink again
