Hoptical Illusion

Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery’s Hoptical Illusion Almost Pale Ale is easy to find on the shelf with it’s psychadelic packaging and labels. Flying Monkeys’s marketing plan is a whole 180 degrees from the more traditional branding the brewery had under the Robert Simpson name. Their new slogan is “normal is weird.”

If you are expecting a lot of hoppiness, you are in for a treat. The aroma is quite spicy. The flavour has a lot of spice and a lot of citrus flavour. It is full of the strong, if bitter, finish you would expect in a pale ale that calls itself Hoptical Illusion. The colour is a deep copper. It is a very good choice if you like a lot of hops in your beer.
