COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shipyard Monkey Fist IPA is the genesis of a new generation of IPA. The traditional elements of classic English IPA have been redefined by American craft beer innovation. Like the image suggests, Monkey Fist is edgy, aggressive, and unique in style. This beer is brilliant copper in color and exploding with Chinook and Cascade hop character but able to maintain a beautiful balance. Monkey Fist holds up to the spiciest foods or is delicious savored just on its own. And, in case you didnt know, a Monkey Fist is the knot tied at the end of a sailors rope to serve as a weight and make it easier to throw. Cheers!

Hoje dia de comear a saborear as cervejas do ms, algo que realmente tenho que admitir que gosto bastante de fazer. A apresentao da cerveja bonita, mas bem comum para uma IPA, uma colorao mbar bem escuro e brilhante, pra quem conhece o tipo bem normal. A degustao comeou pelo modo que uma IPA clssica tem que ser, um amargor considervel, algo que a IPA tem bem como caracterstica, um sabor que puxa bastante pro lpulo, algo que as cervejas mais comuns no tem, e que com certeza vai incomodar quem no est acostumado. O ponto forte da cerveja a estabilidade do sabor, tanto em goles curtos quanto em longos, o sabor no de se alterar muito, o amargor se mantm fcil, e pra quem conhece ser de bom agrado, mas mesmo assim h uma certa dificuldade de manter goles mais longos, o sabor um tanto enjoativo, merecendo sabore-la bem em goles curtos em sem pressa. A porcentagem de lcool no alta, mas bem sentida, os 6,9% de lcool muito prximo das cervejas mais comum, mas mesmo aps 1 garrafa bem notrio o peso e a fora da cerveja, algo interessante, mas que mantm a caracterstica de saborear bem do que beber de qualquer forma. No geral, uma IPA clssica, com um altor teor de amargor, mas que pode ser muito bem saboreada aos poucos, o que traz um sentimento bom de satisfao, mas no perde o tom enjoativo em goles mais longos, o que pode estragar um pouco a experincia como um todo.

Just okay IPA. A bit on heavy malty side. Some bite but not really much distinguishable hop character. Okay.

commonmac (1188) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Tap outside on the patio of Porthole in Portland, ME. Plastic glass. Orange and golden in color. Citrus on the nose especially grapefruit rind. Maybe a little pine. Nice looking off white head. Taste is mostly bitter hops but there is a malty quality serving as an undercurrent of flavor and mouthfeel. Pine and slight floral notes. Feels pretty basic IPA fare but its drinkable. Decent, if not really a knockout, punch.
