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.
Hazy amber beer, light citrus aroma. Aroma and taste are resinous, citrusy hop. Crisp and clean. Tasty. Stuu666 (13057) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2017

Keg at Brewdog Shepherd’s Bush as Port City Monumental IPA. Hazy golden orange, still, slight haze, foamy white head leaves light lacing. Aroma is airy, some air freshener, musty old tangerine. Body is light, touch frothy with soft to tingly carbonation. Taste is resinous, some toffee and orange, Centennial hop vibe, sugary with a woody pine dimension. Has an assertive woody, pine, resin hop presence. Not bad. Ktwse (4794) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Pours hazy copper with low white head. Aroma of mild citrus and caramel. Taste is bitter with a fruit sweet finish. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation. Rex_Remes (204) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JAN 27, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2017 (12oz bottle) AROMA: hops first, some typical IPA notes but also Pils/Saaz, sour, cheese, some cinnamon and cloves. Occasional note of sulfur/dirty water. APPEARANCE: medium dark, brownish Amber, some cloudiness, thick/creamy head. TASTE: roasty, burnt toast, coffee, significant ale characteristics, bitter herbs, dry bitter finish, soy sauce. PALATE: medium-heavy body, a little oily, dry dry dry bitter on cheeks. OVERALL: not your typical IPA. Strong roasted malt influence. And a darker/heavier hop finish. Definitely a beer for drinking more slowly. If you like hearty ales, you should like this. Much to like here, except for the one weird scent I picked up occassionally.

Mild and hoppy, balanced with a good bit of citrus and resin. Bitter, but a little thin overall. Good, but not a standout. mzaar (3380) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2016

September 27th, 2014 - I grabbed a Port City Monumental IPA off the shelf to furnish an evening back at the hotel room prepping for a next-day conference. And it’s fairly standard fare, if a little disappointing. A dose of hops, an underwhelming carbonation, and a sickly grapefruit note, this isn’t the freshest slice of hops on the beer shelves.
