COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mondo Large Red Ale
From the first day of the first mash of the first recipe in the first space to this oasis 13 years on the road; We have worked hard to walk in the footsteps of our hero brewers. The Esteemed brewer of California’s best Pale Ale, the Noble Brewer of the planet’s only legal Steam Beer, and Oregon’s Rebel Brewer from Newport. Thirteen years down the road, we have found our own voice as brewers but our admiration for the Great Ones has not dimmed one bit. If we walked well down the hero’s path ourselves, perhaps we too have been an inspiration for others. Beer is a Bronze Age business and we feel honored to have left our footprints on its path into history, at the same time leaving our flavors on your buds. Thanks for your trust over the years and we hope you enjoy this specially brewed Hi-Gravity Auburn offering. Beer Speaks. People Mumble! O.G. 1.085 76.92 IBU

ulrikolsen (143) - DENMARK - JUN 20, 2016
Tap@Søernes. Pours clear amber with offwhite head. Aroma is fruity, malty caramel with sweet resinous, and orange hoppiness. Taste is semi-sweet malty with caramel, biscuit and toffee yet hoppy with orange, pine and slightly grapefruit. Finish is both semi-sweet and bitter. Good one!

HourGlass13 (538) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Pours up a beautiful clear reddish amber with a big frothy lasting tan head. Aroma is hops, malt, and some booze. Taste is solid hops to match the hefty malt base. Good balance all around with a Fruity Caramel Pine taste. Some Grapefruit. Some booziness.

GSH1976 (307) - Delaware, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Pours a clear, dark amber with little head and minimal lacing. Aroma is very sweet and dominated by caramel malt with some bread. I think there is some pine hiding in there but this is predominantly sweet. Taste follows the nose with some subtle bitterness that lingers a little in the finish but caramel malt is the main player here. Medium to full bodied. If I had this at a blind tasting I would know it was Lagunitas. It is similar to Brown Shugga only less sweet which is a good thing.

12 oz. bottle. Pours an amber-red color with a brief off-white head. Aroma is of resiny pine, citrus and stone fruit. Medium-full body, the taste is a great balance of citrus and pine hops and caramel malt. Slighty dry finish. Excellent!

Smells is to die for when it comes to beer. Nice sweet fruit smell like sweet pineapple honey and mango and Orange. Nice cloudy copper color with small white head the dissipates quickly. Super sweet Apple like taste with sweet malts coming through in the middle with a Nice long lasting bitter bite at the end. Medium body with nice crisp carbonation. Got one of the sweetest beer I’ve ever tried here. Lovely smell and taste. Nice work.

DenverLogan (1026) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Pours orange amber with head and lace. Aroma of grains, malts, hops. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich grains, malts, rye, bitter herbs, burnt caramel, brown sugar. Overall bold, rich, and while somewhat bitter it’s nevertheless quite tasty. Easy to drink more than one!
