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!

12oz bottles. Aroma is grassy hops that dissipate. Taste is hops and malt, finish is clear. Not bad at all, nothing really distinctive.

reebtogi (4214) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
473ml can pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light pine and grapefruit with some notes of cereal grains. Taste is a pine and grapefruit hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Nicely balanced body and flavors. An interesting IPA that is worth checking out.

Nice hoppy aromas. Definitely has a nice hop bite, having warrior and glacier gives it a very unique flavour. A good one!

kermis (5260) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle shared at Mosto, Matera. Pours hazy amber with an off white head. Aroma of caramel malt upfront, with grapefruit, pine and resinous hops. Flavor is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

jercraigs (7894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
2014-09-03. Hazy copper body, large creamy foamy beige head. 3++ Aroma is sweet, caramel malty core with citrus accents. Flavour is similar, base is quite sweet, caramel notes, fruity lemony hop citrus notes crest then fade behind the malt. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Light on the tongue the alcohol manages to leave a light warming impression behind nonetheless. Enjoyable but not enough hops for what I am looking for in an IPA, even accounting for some fading over time. Okay. Can from the LCBO, Toronto

adster (395) - HUNGARY - AUG 31, 2014
Érett, szinte kirobbanóan gyümölcsös, frissen nyírt füves aromájú főzet telt illatú malátával keverve; mennyei összhatás. Kissé festékes árnyalatú komló kezdi meg az illatolás után ezerszínű játékát, mely a kortyok során simogató, majd jólesően kesernyés, ám nem metszően, inkább egybeolvadva a többi, trópusi gyümölcsös alapízzel. Érezhető a többféle komló jelenléte, komplexitása illatában és ízében is tetten érhető. Minden egyes korty újabbért kiált: remek...

SODAK14 (282) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Nice copper color pour. This brew is not too hoppy, which I like. Only had one but could have easily drank more which is unusual for me...not being a very big fan of IPA’s.

OOKPIKABLE (88) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours ruby with thick white head. Aroma of citrus, conifer and a bit of wet dog. Tastes of the same, with some alcohol and honey, as well. Sweet and alcoholic aftertaste.

Eructoblaster (3033) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
Can - 473ml. Beautiful hazy golden/orange body with an average white foamy head. Well balanced hoppy taste with malty, citrusy, and some yeasty hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, pineapple, grapefruit and some orange notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Enjoyable.
