Lives up to its’ name - smashing your senes with an explosion of citrus hops. The greatest thing since sliced bread? This liquid bread. marq (1) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2012 does not count
Perhaps my favorite beer to have on draught. A truly robust hoppiness they awakens the tongue but not at all offensively. Unfortunately, the bottled version doesn’t quite have the same magic. jimbojames88 (5) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012 does not count
Great aroma with an amazing hoppy taste that sets it apart from other so called hoppy beers, as the warning on the bottle says, this flavorful IPA ruins you for lamer beers! Great beer Beerguy2222 (2) - Rochester, Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2014 does not count
Golden amber colour; hoppy, citrus and honey aromas with yeasty, biscuit flavours. The initial aroma shockwave that hits your face is the explosive Citra hop with citrusy, piney, and tropical aromas. Then the bitter hop flavor is trailed by the blooming of bready malts balancing the dry atomic burn. TheKeywork (61) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
Nothing can match the true king of beer. Nothing. This is the type of Beer you savour. You spend 5 minutes just smelling it. And every sip is like liquid joy. Dozens of beers later and this remains my number 1. Too bad it's so hard to find up North.

IPA does not get any better than this. Good balance of malt and hops, not overly bitter. I could drink this all day. FlashParker (85) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2011
Bottle then unfiltered from the tank @ Flying Monkey in Barrie, Ontario.
Oh my goodness. If you’re not drinking Flying Monkey yet you will be by the time they start shipping this beauty to stores in March. It makes Hoptical Illusion look and taste like the ugly red red head next door. The mango aroma is entirely unique and inviting. Hoptastic kick in the teeth on first taste, and it doesn’t quit. I get some other aromas here but the star is certainly the mango. Surprisingly, it’s pretty malty, too. Super body. I would have run off with the tank had I been able to find a wrench. More, please!
Aside - you can get this on tap at the Local Gastropub in Barrie. Tried to talk two guys into trying it. They did. Turned their noses up and said it’s "not a Coors." Sigh. FML. Unforseen (2) - - AUG 24, 2013 does not count

Ohhh it’s sooo good!!! This one is truly sweet if you embellish it and let it rest on the palate and enjoy. This one is dry finish with the amazingness of the hops and malt combo. Enjoy this spectacular beer.
