Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear pale copper color with a thin white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lace. Aroma of piney hops, fruit and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of tropical fruit, piney hop and roast malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short piney hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

A solid go to IPA fits the bill as a local daily drinker. I would love to try a few more Monnik beers on future trips to get a better sense of their range. If this shows their potential I think they should be around for a while.
Aroma / Appearance - A cloudy orange base shimmers and glows like slightly filtered lemon tea. An ivory head adds nice contrast. Orange marmalade, bright hops, and jam on white toast percolate upwards.
Flavor / Palate - A bubbly mouthfeel tickles the tongue. Lemonade and orange jam slowly bloom into a refreshingly subtle finish. Clean resin coats the throat. The well polished blend of fresh hops and orange peels rise the occasion. This serves as a good metric for judging the local beer scene if you are at Hopcat.
Remembered being OK but to tell the truth I was rather drunk already. Made the walk home easier. ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 24, 2017
12 oz. can from Old Town; canned on 2/7/17. Aroma: Moderate candied grapefruit with a lighter caramel cereal foundation; claims to have Mosaic, but I’d guess it’s in a lower proportion than the Centennial and Cascade present. Appearance: Dishwater tinted gold with a foamy white head that settles into a thick ring. Flavor: Malts and hops start in near balance; malts have this weird, rubber thing going on just before the citrus hops reach their zenith; the finish is moderately bitter and semi-dry. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: The rubber thing is definitely off-putting, but I seem to be the outlier among raters here. Leans old school besides... not sure I’d take the risk of buying another can for awhile. Chudwick (3314) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - FEB 16, 2017
Can - nose is the few hops I can name. Sips adds smoke? Include pineapple, grapefruit and various citrus peels. Stands out.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2017 2017 re-rerate. Bacon, burned wort, smoke and grassy hops. Juicy, mouthfeel. Bitter smoky finish. Needs work still. This is not a good beer folks...either on tap or in the can. The can looks pretty, but the contents, meh. Tap at CYO. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Light hoppy, tropical nose. Bit of gasoline as it warms, onions. Clean and crisp on the front end, but heavy on the back with onion and sharp bitterness. djd07 (15336) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy copper gold with small frothy white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is pine and citrus. Medium body, pine, grapefruit, light resin finish, good.

on tap @ Beer Engine / Danville KY --- Clear medium / light orange amber, off-white head that shrinks to a thin cover, globs of lace. Taste is malt that adds medium hops following medium fizz. The hops are assertive, yet the malt is allowed to hang around. A common, but well-done, IPA.
