Review from notes.

A: Pours a rather hazy amber/copper color with a one finger off-white head. Decent retention with thin lacing down the glass.

S: Citrus upfront, grapefruit and a pineapple, a little orange zest. Some caramel and faint pine.

T: Nice grapefruit right away with a good bit of caramel in the middle. Light pine on the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate retention, slightly bitter finish.

O: A decent IPA, basically Hale's Pale with a bit hoppier profile.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

22 oz bomber pours a hazy light straw color with fluffy white head. Aromas of grassy and floral hops. Taste is peppery and grassy bitter hops but not particularly flavorable. Nice smooth mouthfeel with dry finish. After really liking Hale's Supergoose DIPA I had high expectations for the Mongoose - but it's a pretty blah IPA.

Poured with vigor into a footed highball glass from a 22oz bottle.

A: Cloudy wheat-orange with a nice white head, average lacing, average retention.
S: Dull for an IPA. Medium kick. Medium hops, citrus and floral notes present.
T: Medium hops (for an IPA), slightly watery, slightly tart on the edge of grapefruit. Minor citrus and floral flavors. Not a strong IPA, and not very complex, but drinkable.
M: Medium carbonation. A little on the dry side. Tart citrus oils tend to stick around for a while.

Overall a drinkable, simple IPA. Very much an average brew.
