Beer Review 70 // Live Transmission by Flying Monkey

I'm happy to announce I am currently on leave following the birth of my second born (a boy this time). This is what has lead to me trying to organize my blogging life, work life and family life so I can do a bit of everything and be ultimately happy.

I have also decided to cut back on the drinking and the pressure of finding new beers to drink everyday, to put on instagram and instead get back to just enjoying a brew. With that in mind I head to the local LCBO and grabbed myself a Live Transmission beer by Flying Monkey. Let's see how it did.

Details
Name: Live Transmission

Style: Milkshake IPA
Brewery: Flying Monkey

Country: Canada, Barrie.
ABV: 6.3%

Commercial Fluff:
With lactose sugar, grapefruit, orange peel, and coconut white tea.

Own Opinion

Artwork: Chaotic at best, lots of electrical looking equipment and a pretty hard to read name. For me it is a miss on this front.

Pour: Yellow, light hazing with a tight white head of foam. Not as hazy as I was expecting for a milkshake IPA.

Aroma: Meh. I'm getting some citrus and a lot of grain.

Taste: Definitely getting citrus from the orange peel, and a bitter finish from the grapefruit. The lactose seems non existent along with the coconut. Seriously wondering if the wrong beer is in the can.

Would I buy it again: Nope. Sorry Flying Monkeys this one is a hard miss. What happened? I think moving forwards I will proceed with caution on any of their beers that isn't a stout.

Have you tried this brew? Let me know your thoughts and remember you can follow me on instagram via @beerswithpeps. Cheers for reading!
