Flying Monkeys IPA packs a delicious punch
Let’s be honest…there are worse ways to kickstart the weekend than with a cold beverage.
And yet, it’s easy to fall into a routine of buying the same couple of beers or spirits at your favorite watering hole or the LCBO. Of course, there’s always going to be your standard go-to’s. But mixing it up (get it…mixing???) makes for a fun outing.
With that in mind, we’re taking a shot (bet you thought we would stop with the drinking puns after that first one) at finding you a weekly selection of spirits to liven up your Friday.
This week why don’t you try…
SMASH BOMB ATOMIC
The primary objective of any good beer is to present it’s drinker with a memorable sitting that combines taste and experience.
And this IPA from Flying Monkey’s accomplishes that mission in spades.
The initial pour is gentle and inviting, with an amber reddish hue that leaves about half an inch of thick creamy foam head.
Even though the name might suggest otherwise, this is actually a lighter tasting pale ale. The aroma hints at touches of grass spread across citrusy and bitter tones. The overall strength isn’t at all detracted by the lighter vibe, as the hops linger pleasantly among the tastebuds.
Ideal to pair with pub fare, but in particular we’d recommend a Fish n’ chips dish. The Abv is 6.0 so you can stick with it for the entire evening if you pace yourself. And the ridiculously imaginative can design is worthy of a shelf display if you are a collector.
