bottled. Pale & hazy even with a steady pour & sediment left in (avoided when 1/5ish is left in bottle) but the nose is a perfect hint @ the hybrid inside. Belgie tongue tingle with citrus hop pop. íPopí b/c its got a very nice hop profile w/out being intensely bitter. I sorta agree w/ RB calling this a Double/IIPA but its almost as much a hoppy-tripel. THIS beer demonstrates the need for a "hybrid" style option. I could rant longer...

Pours hazy Carmel with slightly off white head. Bright and crisp aroma with slight yeast scent. Slightly sweet but mostly bright bitter taste. Great mouth feel and very easy to drink. Hides the alcohol content well.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a carmel color with a short head. Doughy aromas, alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied, has a slight bitter finish. Pretty tasty for how strong it is 9.6%.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- Pours a brownish orange color reminiscent of urine the morning after a long night of drinking with little to no head.
S- The smell punches you in the face with awesomeness. Tons of pine, orange zest, light fruit and spicy belgian yeast undertones.
T- Whoa! An extremely strange combo that I think works very well. Starts off like a typical DIPA with a wave of piny hops and a strong bready malt backbone but is immediately rounded off with spicy belgian blonde characteristics and ends very smooth with little to no hop bitterness. Rarely do I taste a beer that really tastes much different than anything iíve ever had but this one did just that.
M- Thick with medium carbonation.
D- This was an extremely interesting brew to wrap your head around. It definitely isnít an everyday beer but if you are looking to enjoy something new and different pick up a bottle and you wonít be disappointed.

Bottle---candy orange color with a small head and no real lacing. Aroma is fruity, mostly mandarin, of course, I just had a mandarin so I could be influenced there. Toss in some soapy aroma as the drink warms. Sticky sweet flavor of light hops with some yeast. Catching a warm alcohol finish. Appalachian Vinter.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Combination of two of my favorite styles and a very interesting take it is. A one finger head and a light amber color are followed by a smooth and hoppy finish. More to come.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear darkish golden with a thin laceful white head. Nose is sweet and quasi earthy with a semi-fruity/semi-bubblegumy Belgo yeast tone. Taste is sweet with some earthy pale toffee notes, tangerine-esque yeast esters, dough, and a soft sweet pale ending. Not shabby, but forgettable.

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.

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.

12oz bottle served in a snifter. Good double IPA, not as interesting as other Terrapin beers, but still good.
