3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle -
Finally found and popped open my bomber of Mongo. A nice IIPA for sure, but far from the top of the hop heap. The beer pours out a golden orange color with an initial large 3" head, with nice lasting puffiness, but little lacing. Aroma had a nice showing of pineapple/honey sweetness, with a light zip of piney hops. The flavor is where the beer shines as it zeroes in on the bitter tastebuds with a hop-forward hop blast. It’s almost like some kind of hop extract, the flavor reminds me a little of sipping something what hop juice might taste like if steeped in vodka. Tons of piney, sappyness, catty hops without a trace of malts anywhere around (love it). The alcohol is a bit distracting though, but not too much. Really nice beer and nice on the wallet. Dig it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Unclear golden coloured, medium sized white to off-white head, grapefruity nose. Sweet malty, quite strong fruity hoppy, noticable alcohol and dry rather bitter hoppy finish.

Tasting session at Only Good Beer Budapest. Grassy aroma. Citrusy front end with a healthy hop bitterness in the aftertaste. This was very good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Grande dipa, davvero complessa e fantastica. Aroma di arance, fiori, abete, ed anche lievito un po’ Funky, acido. Aranciò carico, schiuma bianca fine è compatta, presenta sapore di agrumi, lievito Funky, del pino e dell’amaro vegetale . Poco carbonata, quasi oleosa, corpo medio pieno e bella secca.

This is my type of IPA. Rich nose and a firm head. Citric but still floral notes and a really full taste of new world and rich hops. Palate longlasting and leaves some warmth. This is California style that impresses me. Bottle from Kioshkh in Copenhagen.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A classic new world IPA. Aroma is fruity and floral. Taste is led by a mouthwatering array of fruit flavours backed up with a subtle toasty malt body and a touch of peppery spice on the finish. A delight for devotees of the exalted hop.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen - fuzzy orange pour with a good sized white topping. Aroma and taste is a plethora of sweet tropical and citrus fruits, some caramel malty, and a big fruity hoppy bitter bite at the end. Joyful stuff.

650ml bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, mango, pineapple and passionfruit. Flavour is medium bitter and medium sweet. Medium bodied, slick texture, average carbonation. Finish is citrus, tropical fruits and nice bitterness.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Flaska från Best of beer, Ålborg.
Snygg lätt dimmig bärnsten med fin vit krona.
Åh sköna doft, tropikerna, övermoget och himmelriket.
Grym tropisk smak med en perfekt beska.
Det som skulle gjort den till en fullpottare hade varit lite kraftigare beska/munkänsla.

A beer in memory of a cat that lived at the brewery, almost gave it a double perfect score right off the bat!! .. Gold .. Big wave foam .. Citrus, salted hops, and fruit bitterness .. Really nice stuff .. . 🐈 .. Lost my eye in a heated watermelon seed spitting contest back in ’92
