This is a small brewery I really want to like - seemingly innovative beers from my home county and a down-to-earth twitter presence which suggests a passion for their work despite stupid hour days and child-rearing restrictions; I was therefore disappointed to dislike iBeer, the first of theirs that I’ve tried; anyway, on to Monkey, which is an amber beer with a thin white head; sweetish fruity aroma; a really good full, ripe citrus flavour - orange (mainly), grapefruit, then a fair whack of piney hops which recede nice and slowly in the long finish; soft carbonation, but far from flat (unlike my iBeer); it’s excellent - would like to give this a go on cask, might break the 4 barrier.

Cask at the Pig’s Ear BF 2010. Ruby-gold pour with a light film. Rich malts, toast and dark, citrus hops in the aroma. Medium to big sweetness, with some strawberry and citrus, nice malt tones, earthy bitters. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Good citrus and light earth hops in the finish, along with some very faint roasty, bready malts. Overall a solid beer. madmitch76 (25344) - , Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2010

Bottle from Darts Farm. Hazy orange-golden colour, creamy off-white head. Aroma and flavour of Victoria plums on a malty base with shy citrusy hints. Very good and moreish! jackl (8300) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Attractive golden color with an off-white head. The nose is quite sweet, with citrus and grassy notes. There’s a woodiness to this nose that reminds of of a saison. The taste is nicely hoppy, with some spicy black pepper notes, the finish is long and sharp. The mouthfeel’s medium, the carbonation lively. Monkey IPA’s a nice, hop-forward brew that’s just a little grizzled around the edges. OwainTurner (425) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Cloudy ale, with decent yeast sediments. Very fruity aroma, lovely hop taste. Melon, grapefruit and lime peel. Well worth a taste. peponi (1946) - Hannover, GERMANY - JUL 22, 2014
Aroma: amazing citrus notes (mango, ananas, orange, melon).
Appearance: hazy golden-straw color, nice white head.
Taste: medium/high bitterness (pine, resin, citrus, grapefruit), nice malty backbone, refreshing and well-balanced, alcohol is well-covered.
Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter finish.
Overall: Very good IPA. imdownthepub (15137) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Bell, Bath. Gold with white head. Malty beer with heavy dry grapefruit notes, definitely hoppy, agree with resinous, sharp throughout, really quite pleasant.
