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.

guzzler67 (1639) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Hazy, reddish amber appearance with a fairly large off white head and good lacing. Muted, bread-like malt aroma with some citrusy hops catching up near the finish. Earthy, hoppier taste turns a bit more herbal with a touch of citrus and pine in the aftertaste. Enticing but not overwhelming.

hayduke (4437) - Eureka, California, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Sampled at GABF 2015. From my tasting notes. In the sample glass was sort of a copper color with a nice white foam cap. Nose of citrus and pine hops and some floral aromas. Medium body. Resinous mouth feel The flavor here is complex and seem more line an English IPA than West Coast IPA we get some much of these days. Lots of citrus and pine in the taste and this continues into a long bitter dry finish. This was really exceptional. Wish we saw more English IPAs.

Nickls (2228) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle. Even though this is dated as a month old bottle it still comes across as faded. Cloudy copper orange brown. Bitter toffee, sweet malt and fruitiness in the aroma. Flavor is bitter, metallic, faded citrus hops, dull, and lifeless body. I don’t get how they make a very solid DIPA, and this is so bad.

egg (227) - USA - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle on 11/24/15. Pours a hazy light copper. Nose is sweet syrup. Some hops. Smells like Sierra Nevada Bigfoot. Taste is like a weak version of Bigfoot, littlefoot. Sweet, some hops, some fruit, caramel. beer but not great for an ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
