Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery Adventures In Time Surfing – American IPA at 8.2% ABV | 46 IBU (C$4.95 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 16-Oct-2020, reviewed 16-Oct-2020)

Appearance: opaque pale gold with two fat fingers of rocky pale ivory head, excellent retention and heavy soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: mango and tropical fruits, oranges and citrus, bready caramel, light vanilla, coconut and woody notes. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-soft carbonation, off-dry medium duration finish. (4/5)

Super juicy fruit and bready caramel with some lactose on a woody/nutty background. Brewer notes say it’s hopped with Cascade, Azacca, Citra, and Sabro hops, with mango puree and blood orange concentrate. Seamless integration of the hop and adjunct fruit flavours make this smooth and easy-drinking, not to mention dangerous as hell, since there’s absolutely no indication of the emphatic ABV. Very nice indeed, and one that could easily be a go-to for the well-stocked fridge. (16/20)
