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!

pumpkinhead2 (887) - 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.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2016 65cl bottle. Clear orange golden, small sticky white head. Aroma is light sweet malts, some sweet fruits , light hops. Taste is similar, malty sweetness and sudden dry bitterness. Light body, watery texture, medium carbonation. Disappointing.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - APR 16, 2016
Bottle at friends house during a card game. Dark golden pour with small head. Aromas were hops but not amazing. Same for the flavor. Just nothing great here.

fhoublon (461) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
Canette de 473ml achete dans une SAQ. Dguste le 16 septembre 2015 (tulipe). Bire cuivre limpide. Mousse beaucoup, col trs pais beige-tan, crmeux et persistant. Peu effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de houblon, de caramel et de sucre. Assez forte en amorce, un peu sucre, assez amre en finale. Alcool ressort trop, la saveur plutt forte masque le reste, mal quilibre. Manque de subtilit, de finesse, lalcool aurait pu tre mieux cach.
