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 didn’t know, a Monkey Fist is the knot tied at the end of a sailor’s rope to serve as a weight and make it easier to throw. Cheers!

Esperava mais: aroma pouco pronunciado, carbonatação algo excessiva, gosto fugaz... Enfim, não é das melhores!!!

Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2015
Hazy pure amber color. Thick and foamy beige 2 finger persistent head with some nice activity.

Sharp aromas of fruity citrus and toasty bread like. Strong highly bitter flavors of smoky orange peel and clove. Slightly missing some freshness.

Medium slick body with average carbonation. Strong and long mouth puckering and astringent finish. Powerful smoky bitter mouth coating of cloves and orange.

Overall : It’s like chewing an orange peel, interesting taste but way too bitter.

Rating #1254 - 22.09.2014 - Can from CBI. Lemony piney nose comes out of this foaming straw-coloured pour. Mild caramel malt sweetness with lots of dry hop pine zest in the finish. Good IPA.

On tap. Amber in color with a small white head. This IPA has a lot of pine and spruce notes. Different. Decent.

Lemon aroma! Cloudy copper color with a small white head. Good initial but finishes a little dry.

raymow (1803) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2015
bottled - nice amber color. Sweet slightly hoppy aroma. Decent hop flavor but has a lesser quality to it (possibly an old bottle).

355ml twist off (!), can’t imagine shipping this beer overseas and using a twist off (let alone shipping ipas in non refrigerated containers [hint hint shelton]).. Semi-hazed amber pour, nice foamy off-white head. The aroma is actually really fresh and nice didn’t catch a bottle date but it smells nice, grainy and bready but not overpoweringly so, just a nice well-rounded malt-accentuated hop perfume. Flavor is resiny, some fruit notes, nice bitterness dry, jsut a hint of caramel and toast. Not bad. Must be a super-fresh bottle too. Pairs good with the salted broccoli im eating for some reason.
