4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Little sad that Mongo had to die for this beer, but this is a ripper of a beer. For the amount of flavour this beer packs it is a little subdued on the nose. Soft pillowy head caps a glorious golden hue.
A fantastic tribute beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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!

3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
