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!

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

decaturstevo (5897) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Amber pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is light resins hops with a bready malt kicker. Flavor is semi sweet malt with floral and resins hops. Medium body with smooth carbonation followed by a solid resiny bitter finish.

commonmac (1091) - 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.

electrotype (654) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2016
Achete la SAQ, en cannette.Extrmement fonce/brune pour une IPA. Cest trs anglais comme IPA, avec ce sucre assez prsent et ce malt Crystal. Une belle petite amertme se pointe le nez et nous laisse deviner les houblons. Ce nest pas mauvais, mais dfinitivement pas un genre que jaime particulirement.

hrabren (981) - 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.

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...

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 (5086) - 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 (309) - 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
