Straight To Ale Monkeynaut IPA
Straight To Ale Monkeynaut IPA is an American IPA. I grabbed a single can of this here in Savannah. As far as I’ve seen this is the first beer from Straight To Ale to show up on our shelves. Opening this at about 2 months old, not crazy fresh, but this is the typical time frame for when we see a lot of beers down here.
The pour is on the darker side with a big fluffy head that never fully dissipates. Sweet on the nose, almost like a caramel hop pie. (Ummm, can somebody make a caramel hop pie? Why is there no such thing as caramel hop pie!?) The taste starts a bit malt forward with more sweet caramel, which is followed by some mildly citrus and big earthy hop flavors. There is a big explosion of hop bitterness on the finish.
This is my first Straight To Ale experience, and I will be back for more. Both for this IPA and any other beers that eventually make it to Savannah.
