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.

guzzler67 (1672) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 29, 2013
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.

Mild and hoppy, balanced with a good bit of citrus and resin. Bitter, but a little thin overall. Good, but not a standout.

mzaar (2922) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2016

GarrettB (1499) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 7, 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 its fairly standard fare, if a little disappointing. A dose of hops, an underwhelming carbonation, and a sickly grapefruit note, this isnt the freshest slice of hops on the beer shelves.

harrisoni (17474) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2016
Bottle from GBBF 2016 and drunk at home. Hazy brown amber colour lasting off white head. A little bit sweet and tired hop on the aroma. To be honest it isnt oxidised, its just a malty old style east coast IPA. A malty ipa with some hop and some bitterness on the finish. Decent mouthfeel. Touch of grapefruit on the hops. Smooth toffee. Its a decent old style east coast ipa but I guess it doesnt cut the mustard with the new style big hop ipas. OK.

Basic IPA with hops and a bitter finish. Nothing particularly memorable, but nothing offensive.
