Citrus, pine, malt... delicious. Great balance.

The story behind the name of the brew earns it bonus points from me. Cheers to Mongo!

Appearance: A beautiful rich orange color with a two finger off white head

Smell: Candied bright fruits, pale malt, slight pine

Taste: Candied fruit upfront, pine in the middle, with both coming together superbly through the finish. The burps are equally as tasty

Mouthfeel: Medium body; oily smooth on the palate with moderate bitterness and carbonation. Great feel

Overall: This is a great IPA all across the board. Its not mind blowing, but it is very solid. The pine is more prevalent in the taste than nose which adds a nice layer of complexity with the bright fruits. As with most great beers, this gets better as it warms. It looks great, smells great, tastes great, and feels great on the palate. Thats a recipe for a world class beer

On draft this beer shines. Tropical, bitter, dank hops on the nose. Taste is juicy grapefruit, orange peel and subtle bitterness thru the finish. Nice lacing and smooth for the abv. Wonderful WC imperial IPA.

Popping the cap releases a big grassy hop nose with citrus and fruit notes over some base malt. It has a hazy gold body under a big, fluffy 2” + very finely bubbled persistent foam collar with thick clumpy lace. Very creamy rich palate attacks with malty sugars, hints of caramel in the back ground smeared on a little white bread, which recede before a big hop bitterness with a little astringency on the finish. The malt and alcohol balance the hops. Medium full to chewy body and creamy above average carbonation. A big, beautiful elixir.
