COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mondo Large Red Ale
From the first day of the first mash of the first recipe in the first space to this oasis 13 years on the road; We have worked hard to walk in the footsteps of our hero brewers. The Esteemed brewer of California’s best Pale Ale, the Noble Brewer of the planet’s only legal Steam Beer, and Oregon’s Rebel Brewer from Newport. Thirteen years down the road, we have found our own voice as brewers but our admiration for the Great Ones has not dimmed one bit. If we walked well down the hero’s path ourselves, perhaps we too have been an inspiration for others. Beer is a Bronze Age business and we feel honored to have left our footprints on its path into history, at the same time leaving our flavors on your buds. Thanks for your trust over the years and we hope you enjoy this specially brewed Hi-Gravity Auburn offering. Beer Speaks. People Mumble! O.G. 1.085 76.92 IBU

Sweet, but w bitter hops, well balanced, malty and caramely- kind of typical lagunitas. Can taste the booziness- aroma is predominately hops. Overall, well balanced and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Restrained aroma in an amber pour. Big hop forward balance to start with big sweat malt body to match. Laid back bitter finish leaves one wanting another. One of the best RIPAs I’ve had - and has to be a benchmark of the style.

This is an old favorite from my old favorite brewery. It pours a reddish hue with a medium head. It has a malty spicy aroma. The flavor is a robust, round hop bitterness with a burnt caramel aftertaste. It is a very solid, early aughts style beer (as in it doesn’t taste like juice) that hides its 8.8ABV well. Good for a Thursday night feast of Popeyes and avoidance of the mysterious rotten trash smell that will now haunt our hallway till the morning.

Bottle - Pours amber with a smallish head. Bright citrus aroma...not expecting that with bready malt. Good mouthfeel and a lot going on, yet they work well together. Very enjoyable.

nose is hoppy and sweet, flavor is moderately hoppy with a nice malt balance. a very nice fluffy head that stays for a considerate amount of time. Alchohol is very well hidden like others have said. nice beer here

Beer5000 (6492) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2017
Superficial festival rating at DØE - Ølfestival København 2017. Amber body with a moderate sized tan head. Aroma is malty with caramel, pine and fruity hops, some grapefruit. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, dry fruit, pine, grapefruit, good bitterness and some alcohol. Fine body and long lasting sweet and bitter aftertaste. Pretty solid stuff.

bigcat03 (324) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - JUN 6, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2017 Bottle poured into an English pint glass. Pours a caramel color with a huge frothy head that leaves some nice lacing and lots of visible carbonation. Aroma is caramel malts, pine, and grass. Initial taste is very balanced between the malt and hops. Aftertaste has more grassy notes. Full body and just enough carbonation. I love a good red ale and this is certainly one. Only time you can sense the ABV is the warming feeling afterwards.

3.6
BelgianBeerGal (4067) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2017
Fresh bottle from somewhere local, most likely Beach Liquor. Pretty bold aroma and flavor of dark, sweet malt and medium bitterness from citrus hops and a hint of pine. Pretty nice and the almost 9 ABV is well hidden.

3.4
Block (2727) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Nice hops in the aroma and flavor. Well balanced. Malty backbone. Alcohol is masked.
