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

22oz bottle Malty bold hoppish sweet tasting. Finishes with a citrusy and kind a biiter bite for me. Dark copper color.

JAG55 (77) - O’Fallon, Missouri, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Poured 22oz bomber in a tulip glass. Beautiful mahogany color with nice release of the carbonation into bubbly vanilla head and excellent lacing. Fabulous balance of hops and malt flavors with medium to full body and slightly creamy texture. Light finish with lingering sweetness.

ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear brownish orange with a small off-white head. The aroma was an excellent blend of grass, malt, hops and citrus. The taste was an excellent melding of citrus, malt and hops. One of the best beers I have had in months. Outstanding.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2008 Pours a dark amber color w/ a tall lasting head. Sticky lacing w/ a fluffy ring and partial canopy. Strong aromas of citrus rind. Full nectar w/ soft and creamy residual effers. Nice! Strict hops balance a sturdy malt body creating a superlative sense of equilibrium within this specimen’s overall makeup. It’s beautiful I tell you. For extreme red this one pulls off the unexpected balancing act w/ only a mild sweetness factor. The hop component really digs in and scars the user like aspirin. Caramel, leather, and citrus interwoven perfectly. The finish is long w/ gobs of asprin hop fulfillment. Highly recommended.

Grapefruit is what comes to mind. Nice frothy med white head, good balance of hops and malts. Great copper color. At 3.99 per 22 oz bomber, this is a very good value.

Cybercat (5959) - Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2007
A nice dark amber-brown, it pours with a thin but persistent head. Aroma is very hoppy and makes one think of an evergreen tree. Taste is outrageously hoppy - a must for any hop fanatic! The flavor is like the way a pine tree smells, but there is minimal bitterness. This is a beer to be sipped and savored. Even with all its hoppiness, it is smooth and pleasant to drink.
