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!

Contrary to the description, this really struck me as an EPA. Malt and caramel dominated, with some hops to balance things off. Okay. Bottle from Bob.

This indeed a spicy tasting, hoppy IPA. I like it very much! Not quite as malty as some high gravity IPAs, but maltier than many. Its red in color. On vacation in Marthas Vineyard and drinking local brews.

A very nice clear copper with a thin head. True to the English style, lots a malt in the aroma. The flavor has some caramel and a good amount of hops. Pretty well balanced. Finishes very crisp and dry.

Bire dore de 6.9 % dalcool. Elle possde un odorat dagrumes et de fruits exotiques. Elle possde une amertume importante en bouche, avec un fond de pamplemousse. Elle possde un arrire-got trs amer, avec un accent important du pamplemousse et de limette. Intressante !

Embouteille le 22 octobre 2014 (inscrit sous la canette), celle-ci a dpass son heure... Peu quilibre quoique la base soit bonne et les houblons amrisants bien intgrs. a manque juste un peu de finition et de subtilit. Super logo!!

Can. Taste is at first an obvious hoppy citrus/floral bomb, but on the second sip Im getting malty, doughy character as well. East meets west.

En trois points... 1) Les houblons sexpriment dabord sous un ciel dnatur. Est-ce que la bire est vieille? Je ne saurais le dire puisquil ny a aucune inscription en ce sens sur la canette. Je lai trouve en SAQ; elle pourrait dater. 2) Aprs quelques lampes, lamertume linstalle en fond de bouche, comme une toile qui engourdit les papilles. On perd un peu le fil, mais les quelques dfauts apprhends sont ds lors masqus. Et on gote nouveau. Et le plaisir est de la partie. La bire simpose comme un hybride entre une bonne IPA anglaise et une IPA amricaine correcte. Le malt caramel est en retrait, les houblons sont aromatiques... mais surtout amers. 3) Shipyard offre de trs bon produit. Celui-ci est intressant, mais manque de subtilit. On perd un peu de vue lensemble de loeuvre force de sattarder chacune des parties, souvent trop agressives.

Elle est ambre et une mousse compacte qui se rsorbe lentement. Elle laisse des traces au fil des gorges. a sent le malt et du sirop de glucose, mais il faut y mettre les narines au gros travail pour arriver dtecter quelque chose. Le got est sucr et un alcool dsagrable nous surprend normment. Ya un aspect amer en arrire-got, mais celui-ci se trouve drang par un ct chimique, plastifi ou encore mdicamenteux, qui fait grimacer allgrement. Certes, il y a du houblon quelque part, mais il sen trouve effac. (1387-210315)
