COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Monk’s is balanced like the best Belgian strong golden ales, yet has flavor and aroma hops that are as aromatic and intense as any imperial IPA. Double dry-hopped and fermented with our aromatic yeast strain, Monk’s has an intensely tropical hoppy nose and yet drinks easy and smooth without the intense bitterness that is normally associated with such a hoppy brew.

Ungstrup (29164) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2012
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of yeast, malt, fruits, and spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of yeast, phenols, fruits, malt, alcohol, and quite a lot of different spices, leading to a dry spicy finish. The body is strong. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Lovely exotic hop aroma - very intense and almost herbal. Rich body with lots of fruit and malt in there and then again this shitload of aroma hops leading to a bitter finish. Quite some heat in there too. Luckily no Belgian yeast character, this is basically a good Double IPA. 200912

illidurit (2121) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle shared at Woodshop 7. Pours hazy gold-orange with a white head. Ester and hop interplay gives it a summery tangy citrus vibe, lemons and oranges. Some typical notes of banana and grapefruit as well. Dry vanishing malty finish.
