COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Volume 5: This new age beer style is a fusion of two great brewing traditions that are worlds apart - a hoppy American Double IPA and a classic Belgian Tripel. Beware the Gnome in the funny green hat!

Labelled as Monks Revenge. Aroma us apricot, orange, yeast, mold. Look is cloudy yellow-orange. Small head, but creamy looking....lasting. a touch of vinegar. Some Wang, but the sweet fruitiness and creamyness keep it pleasant. Medium carbonation. A nice Belgian.

Monks revenge is a great combo beer. Combining Belgian and IPA good appearance and aroma with layers of flavor.

JHeath99 (951) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours hazy amber with slight off white head. Aroma of slight hops and yeast/bread. Taste of initial bitterness that quickly gives way to yeast. Different/interesting.

Maltser85 (263) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Pours a beautiful copper orange color. Aroma is citrus pine, pineapple, pepper, Belgian yeast, some malty sweetness. Taste falls short. Malt notes fight with the Belgian notes which for with the hop bitterness. Notes from the nose are there on all fronts, but too disjointed to truly enjoy. Well crafted though, alcohol stays hidden/blends in.

deaconmike (381) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Poured from a bottle into my Monday Night Brewing snifter. Really nice looking beer - dark amber with a pillowy off-white head - it disipates to a thin cap and leaves minimal spotchy lacing. Aroma is malt, belgian yeast, grass, dried fruit and spice. Taste starts sweet and a little bitey and then a peppery/clove spice takes over and lingers on the palate. Dried fruit, malt, pine dominate the flavors. Overall, its a decent beer - to me it seemed like I was tasting two separate beers, this one didn’t blend seemlessly for me.

S_Side_Smitty (458) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Pours amber-orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity Belgian yeast. Taste is mild fruit up front (almost grape like) going to a typical Belgian yeast mid palate and a long bitter finish. Definitely different and definitely blasphemous.

UDBeernut (1720) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2013
2013 bottle pours amber with a cream colored foam cap that leaves behind a gentle lacing coat. nose of flowers, bubblegum, earth. taste begins with quick toast ans sweetness quickly washed over by citrus with bitterness flashing in on an abrupt finish. cloves hang on the palate long after finish. body is light to medium.

9/3/2012. From bottle. Aromas of citrus, pine, caramel, hops and yeast. Interesting combination of two different styles, but somehow it works pretty good.

The beer poured nicely into my pint glass with a good amount of carbonation. The beer appears to have a golden/copper tint to it with a nice white head that clings to the side of the glass. The smell comes with that nice citrus/hoppy smell but also has the hint of fruit/sweetness from the belgian part. The beer taste starts with a great IPA flavor and blends into a nice fruity belgian flavor with a hoppy aftertaste, it is a great combination of the two styles that is mixing well. The mouth feel is the worst part of the beer but still very good with a mild IPA flavor lingering around but also has a nice sweet flavor to it too. Overall, this beer fits well with a Belgian IPA description and totally delivers it. The to styles are blended very well with neither one overpowering the other, they go hand in hand very well. Near perfection. Its too bad they dont distribute in NY...

Beerathon (1167) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Very much a Belgian as the yeast and the dark candi sugar comes through. However, it heavily masks the IPA part of this. It’s a good beer, but not much on the hoppy double IPA side.
