Mongo IPA is a great tasting IPA. Hidden alcohol, but at 8.5% quite dangerous. Wonderful flavours, great looking beer. Quite bitter but a real hop bomb.

k0mpsa (1808) - Järvenpää, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle from uba ja humal, tallinn. Hazy light orange color, white head. Aroma has sweet caramel notes, fruity notes, hops, hint of pineapples. Sweet malty body, balanced hoppiness and fruits. Very good imperial ipa.

jookos (3602) - FINLAND - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle. Copper clear. Strong hops on nose- citrus grapefruits, leafy pines, almost giving an earl grayish feel to it. Full bodied, smooth, bitter sweet, just nice on the palate. Strong pines, resinous, citrus too, but in a more mellower bergamotty earl grayish manner. Real nice, super clean, tasty.

HoppyScallywag (128) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Typical IPA hoppiness. Hangs on the palate light enough just to remind you what you are drinking. Overall, a decent double. Not sure I would get it again though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

euniceradio (213) - Colton, California, USA - AUG 4, 2015
22 bomber to cervoise. Pours hazy orange with white frothy head. Aroma of trop fruit, pepper spice and acidic citrus juice. Taste of same with some candied fruit to balance the spice. Grapefruit finish with some peppercorn and booze. Well-balanced and complex. Very good!

Great aroma of honey and several varieties of hops. Complex yet pleasant. Pours a pretty crimson/dark orange color with a bright white head of foam. The copious amount of foam brings the appearance score down from a 5 to a 4. Other than that, it looks perfect. The taste is a bit thin at first, with some of the honey sweetness from the aroma showing through. The citrus hop flavor creeps in at that point, quite sharply, then fades away quickly leaving a sweet aftertaste. As far as the palate is concerned, it has an adequate thickness, but I factor the aftertaste into the palate rating and it was just too bland. I had high hopes for this beer but the flavor just does not match up with the robust DIPAs that I enjoy so much.

mateuszk (1021) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle. Hazy Orange with white head. Aroma of sweet tropical fruits (mango, passionfruit, apricot) with solid malty backbone. In taste fruity with caramel malts backed by solid grapefruit bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation. Very tasty.

bavarian81 (111) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Mostly a floral hop aroma. I found the flavor to be a blend of hops, spice, citrus, and possibly even caramel. In my opinion the hoppiness could have been a little bit more balanced.

Ferris (8062) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle - Some peel and resin. Cloudy orange gold with a nice rich white head. Bitter orange peel and a long bitterness with a sweetness. Not bad.

SinH4 (1131) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 24, 2015
Orange-copper color with nice white head. Aroma is Mango, resins, tropical fruits like mango, piney. Taste is more tropical fruits, grapefruits, lots of spruces and pines, bitter booze. A very good DIPA!
