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.
