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.

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.

Maxbier (573) - Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2015
Clear dark caramel/golden color with dense off-white head. Aroma is flowery sweet hop, the hop aroma is closer to a Hallertau or Saaz than to an American hop. Taste is more like an American IPA; Bitterness up front- pine, grapefruit, hints of tropical fruits and grasses. Maltyness is noticeable but generic in its flavor and character. Finish is piney bitter and lingers a while. Food pairing is probably critical with this beer- completely different experience depending on what you are eating.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 On tap at Osteria Morini, Navy Yard in DC. Appearance is a hazed brown-orange. Aroma of hops and bitterness. Similar flavor but add toffee and a little spiciness to it. Strong tobacco-like notes. Smooth and crisp and doughy. Good beer.

Too malty. There is some bitterness but the hops are dominated by the malt flavor. I believe the hop should dominate in an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Nice IPA, more earthy and bready than many. Maybe a bit more sweet than I like but still decent balance and very drinkable. I like that it’s got several things in play, floral notes, citrus notes, and pine resin.
