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 (29286) - 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 (25085) - 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

fiulijn (14549) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
10oz

Amber color, clean, with small creamy head. The aroma is strong, fruity, with some peach, mango, oranges. Good body strength, round mouthfeel; the malt flavor is quite anonymous, moderately sweet, with a nice fruit touch and strong bitterness, ending with soft resins. Don’t expect a piney DIPA.
An American sweet interpretation of Belgian Ales with the hopping of a DIPA.
Good powerful and clean beer, but unemotional.

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2012
Light amber and bright with a creamy head. The aroma has a lot of hops but also floral, bubblegummy phenols as well. Earthy hops help to balance a tripel that is otherwise very bubblegummy, floral and sweet. Finishes a little alcoholic.
