Very huge yellow head, pitting in over metallic orange beer. Nose of exotic fruit: pink grapefruit, papaya, passion fruit, rosewater, tangerine. Really bitter, but in a very fruity way. Grapefruit, citruszeste, hopoils galore, going into resiny/piney touches. Bitter green leaves. Sticky from the hopoils, medium bodied. A good one, without extravangances.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2012 22oz bottle. Pours clear copper-orange with huge frothy off-white head. Aroma is heavy citrus, pineapple, with peach and some vanilla. Big hop flavor, mostly pine, with subtle malt in the background. Dry finish with slight alcohol warming and lingering bitterness.

2nd of two IPAs last night. Orange amber in color with some yellow and light brown. Hefty alcohol is to be found here. This was a really fresh bottle and I was surprised by the malt and alc% potency. Hops were less fresh than I would have thought too. Really good beer but I like many of the other port beers better.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured from a tap into a pint glass at Vine Cottage in San Diego, Calif. Color was orange amber. About an inch of white head. Light lacing on the top. Some film on the sides that lasted throughout the pour in rows. Smelled of pine, tropical citrus (mango, grapefruit, tangerine, etc.) and hops. Grapefruit and mango led the way with the initial taste. Smooth taste. Slight bitter kick at the end, but not the alcohol bite I was expecting. Medium body. Average-to-lively carbonation. Smooth rules this beer. Not too bad. I was surprised at the higher rating for the Mongo. I only ordered a second one because I was too lazy to review a new beer.

Pours a lightly hazy peach-amber with a 3 finger, chunky eggshell head. Aroma is citrus, mineral and light tropical fruit, some toast and cereal grain. Flavor is citrus, pine, light tropical fruit, sweet malt, toast, grass, dry hay, sweet caramel and an odd corny sweetness. Palate is medium bodied, has a high, and fairly sharp carbonation and quite dry, slightly slick finish. Damn tasty stuff overall, I would love to try it fresh from the source.

Pours a white head with lots of lacing. The bomber had yeast suspended in the beer. Lots of citrus resinous dank taste and aroma. Mmmm good stuff and highly drinkable. Malts a little bread and caramel . Awesome aftertaste, you can definitely feel it on your tongue. Great beer!

jmohno (1595) - Iowa, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Cloudy dark yellow gold.Good head/ lacing.Floral piney grassy,catpissy,spice, some sweet malt for aroma.Heavily hop flavored,grassy piney with some caramel taste strongly bittered that sticks around a while.Medium bodied no alcholol detection seems almost sessionable but the hops make it somewhat of a sipper.Definatly a beer to just sit back and appreciate and enjoy moderatly.The hopping is well done in aroma flavor and bittering.Its definatly an ipa you almost wouldnt know its a double though.Until you drank the whold bomber.

IPAs are still a style Im learning to enjoy. Cloudy yellow pour, strong aroma of citrus, pine or cedar, and some floral undertones. I really like the aroma. The initial taste has bitter hops and lots of the woodiness from the aroma. I didnt get much of the citrus or floral. Pretty good for an IPA.

Grapefruit and pine resin abound in this prototypical double ipa. Nice and murky with unfiltered hoppy goodness in suspension. The flavor is much the same as the aroma- massive citrus and graprefruit evergreen with some tropical fruits, and a light caramel malt background. The palate is thick thick thick with medium carbonation. Resinous.
