TROPICALLY HOT - SOUND BREWERY'S "MONK'S INDISCRETION"

A few weeks ago we ventured into SOUND BREWERY's wares and gave them a big thumbs up for an excellent Double IPA of theirs called "Humulo Nimbus". Remember that? I was just up in Seattle a few weeks ago for a little family vacation, and saw that their beer can be relatively easy to find in the city itself, so this 'lil Poulsbo, WA brewery is doing well for themselves. Could it be because they're making some really delicious beer? I think it might be.

"MONK'S INDISCRETION" is a big boozy Belgian-style ale, tipping the scales at a gonzoid 10% alcohol. It's "tropically hot", as the Berlin Brats might have said. This means it's not only all big and alcohol-laden, but it truly tastes of tropical fruits like pineapple and those other ones. It's also got some pretty aggressive hopping, so there's that. Thin bodied, and absolutely no head at all. Still as the Mekong Delta, just before Charlie swings down from the trees and slashes your throat. I'm making it out to be a total ass-whumper, but it's not. It's a very good Belgian ale that has a nice touch of inventiveness and a lot of flavor. I'd buy it if I were you. 7.5/10.
