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!

Aroma is sweetish with fruits, resin and caramel. Flavour is rather hoppy with sweetish fruits, resin, some biscuits and caramel. Hints of hay in the finish. Good.

mabel (7712) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
[6717-20140903] Can. Honey pine needle sugar aroma. Hazy, orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head and some lacing. Bitter sugary corn grains flavour has a long toasted aftertaste. Medium body. Really odd, not favourably so. (4/3/5/3/10) 2.5

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 6, 2012
22oz bomber pours clear copper with near white head. The aroma has some vague resiny hops, a bit of fruity raisin esteriness and then that house yeast nearly butterscotch note. The house yeast doesn’t work here for me. The taste is similar as I get hops that are vague and bitter and a bit resiny mixed with the house yeast buttered bread and butterscotch. Didn’t not really like this one. The yeast or maybe it is an off note, just doesn’t work.

lusikka (7622) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2012
355 ml bottle @ Angleterre, Helsinki.
Pours a hazy amber orange colour with a white head. Aroma of nuts, biscuit and strong perfume notes. Flavour of pale malts, strawberries, grass, biscuit, astrigent, perfume and floral notes. Medium bodied, rough mouthfeel and a rough bitter finish with some strawberries again. Not good.

blipp (7358) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Draft. Pours orange with an off white head. Citric and flowery aroma. The flavor has floral and citric hops with sweet malts and toffee. Just a hint of diacetyl, but not bad.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2014
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 11 Jan 2014) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with apricots, citrus and toast. Malty, roasted taste with notes of apricots, orange peel, crisp-bread and a citric, slightly toasty bitterness in the finish. Slightly edgy malt profile. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Not overly complex, but quite well made IPA. Nice one.
