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!

hrabren (1143) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 11, 2016
Bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with Vinja 666. Reddish-golden, lasting medium off-white head. Medium to heavily hopped, hops nicely present in the nose as well as toasty malts and dry fruits. Dry bitterness, hops aggressively breaking through. Gasoline. Full taste. Something perfumed is off here. Otherwise good.

hellonearth (150) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2016
Dun orang voil la petite mousse quasi-onctueuse. Agrables armes de pin, de grain, dabricots schs. Au got : pamplemousse, toasts brles. Lamertume est bonne quoiqu un peu tenace... quelques micro notes de caramel brl (ce satan got que je suis loin de chrir). Une bonne IPA, avec, toutefois, quelques petits dtails qui ne me font pas vibrer...

ScoWRee (420) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Pours a murky golden color with a huge thick, white, foamy head. Aroma typical of an IPA. Hoppy, Grapefruit. Taste is crisp, grapefruit. Refreshing. A nice IPA

rumproasts (5318) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle. Medium amber with one finger head. Malty body with bready, light toffee. Earthy hops, seems this leans to the English style a bit. Eh.

HoppyScallywag (339) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2016
This one starts out bitter, with a malt low note and then gets even more bitter and dry on the palate. Not a terrible IPA, but you definitely gotta be in the mood for a mild bite with a box full of bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft @ T.F. Green Airport. Copper body with an amber/beige head. Solid hoppiness with citrus and pepper notes. Doughy maltiness rounding it out. Good IPA.

pumpkinhead2 (908) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2016
Bire orange bruntre, parfaitement voile, effervescence moyenne-faible, et surmonte dun col beige moyennement large, trs dense et mousseux, qui saffaisse tranquillement en laissant une belle dentelle sur les parois du verre. Armes de pain moyennement grill, ptisserie, lger sucre mi-fonc (mlange de sucre dorge et lger caramel) accompagn des effluves dun houblon principalement floral aux notes galement dagrumes (surtout pamplemousse) et de conifre. Certaines odeurs boises, alcoolises et peut-tre aussi lgrement fume semblent prsentent en arrire-plan. Nez correctement agrable, complexit adquate, bonne intensit. En bouche, ptillement assez lev sur la langue, onctuosit moyenne au palais. Au got, entre malte de pain grill, grain rti, sucre dorge et caramel, suivi de la domination dun houblon principalement floral et rsineux, petites notes de pamplemousse, en route vers une finale lamertume de moyenne leve. On note galement une certaine trame de fond de malt fum et bois, et la toute fin de bouche se veut particulirement boise. Trs bonne intgration des diffrentes saveurs entre elles, quilibre malt/houblon intressant. Bon got, complexit adquate (bonne pour le style!), intensit leve en bouche. Il sagit dune bien bonne bire!

N3lson1 (1005) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle in a twelve pack sampler. Pours a nice golden/copper color, lots of head that dissipates quickly. Not fond of the up front, in-your-face hop aroma. Decently balanced on the taste tho.
