COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shipyard Monkey Fist IPA is the genesis of a new generation of IPA. The traditional elements of classic English IPA have been redefined by American craft beer innovation. Like the image suggests, Monkey Fist is edgy, aggressive, and unique in style. This beer is brilliant copper in color and exploding with Warrior, Glacier, and Cascade hop character but able to maintain a beautiful balance. Monkey Fist holds up to the spiciest foods or is delicious savored just on its own. And, in case you didn’t know, a Monkey Fist is the knot tied at the end of a sailor’s rope to serve as a weight and make it easier to throw. Cheers!

JFGrind (1893) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Weird name, right? Dark golden IPA, with a ’knot’ of hops. Hop Bomb with flavors leaning towards citrus. Medium body with a full slate of bitterness. Bold beer with a weird name from Shipyard.

Drjohnrock (545) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2014
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.
