COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When making a hop-forward one-off beer, sometimes we need look no further than one of our heroes, Brian Fantana, for inspiration. Our Double IPA, Sex Panther, was our first beer inspired by the storied cologne collection of this beacon of journalism. For this sequel, his protection collection takes center stage.

The Gentle Mongoose is a huge hoppy red, with a bit of spice coming from the Vienna malt and an out-of-control nose thanks to a Cascade and Centennial dry-hop. While the original Gentle Mongoose is made from actual mongoose hair, and therefore doesnt work at all, were confident that our Gentle Mongoose will get the job done.

Notable hops: Centennial, Cascade
Notable malts: Pale, Vienna, C20, Caramunich

A little more hoppy than I would want but still a great amber ale. Holy City is becoming a fantastic brewery following the Puff Mud Porter. Rich. Comlex. Clean. Tasty. Malty with a full floral tone. Sits well on the back of the tongue.

On tap at source. Nice aroma with some bready malts coming through. Taste is earthy, and fairly bitter with a lingering bitter aftertaste.
