COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Monumental IPA is a rich copper color, and is intensely hoppy. We add a special blend of American hops throughout the brewing and fermentation process to create a complex combination of aroma and flavor. This ale exhibits floral notes, flavors of citrus and resin, combined with delicious caramel background notes. The balanced style will keep the palate fresh and invite the drinker back into the glass.

BLADT (511) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle pour. Semi-opaque amber body with tan head. Sweet, yeast driven nose of dough and bubblegum, offset with some citrus and orange. Taste also punches in the sweet class. Mild earthy hops and some tea flavors too. Light bodied and thin. Not what I look for in an IPA, but not horrible.

A very sweet ipa. There is a little bitterness towards the end, but the hop flavors wind up indistinct or lost. Mediocre.

From a growler. Decent aroma. Hops, pine and citrus. Flavor is ok. Not a bad beer. Not very hoppy.

Solid IPA for those who like a less bitter, hoppy IPA. Has a nice floral/herby thing going on that makes it quite different from the very hoppy IPA’s like Victory’s Hop Wallop and Hop Devil. I think this is perhaps Port City’s best to date.

AdamT (154) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2014
12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Reddish-orange pour with fully diminishing white fizzy head. Virtually no lacing. Mandarin orange, lemon and pineapple aromas. Light orange and lemon taste up front with a short light grapefruit hop finish. Wet texture, fizzy carbonation.

njnut (213) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Poured at brewery a clear amber with small white head. Aroma was citrus, floral. Lighter not overbearing. Slick in the mouth a little oil. Taste was same as aroma with some pine resin esp in finish. Nicely done.

jesperhammer (2843) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2014
14-MAY-2014, draft @Harry’s Smokehouse @Pentagon City Mall. Hazy orange with low lasting, lasting, off-white head. Aroma is malt and hops. Taste is grape fruit, pine, over ripe peach and oranges. Sweet malts is plenty. Creamy with soft carbonation, not overly bitter. A nice fruity IPA.

bartlebier (1558) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 20, 2014
(US 2012 backlogged in abstinentia) Draft pint @Flying Fish Restaurant, Alexandria VA 11/09/2012. Light-bodied sweetish amber ale speckled with some extra hops with a lemon tea granulate feel to them. Tired finish. Not an ideal fish accompanier.

quiznoaz (308) - Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2014
Orange-yellow, not much aroma (though its a bad glass for aroma). Dry grapefruit with a faint orange finish behind the hops. Not bad.
