Port Mongo Double IPA

The month of April has past and, unfortunately, so has the sale at the stomping grounds. Which means my ability to buy more for less is over until next year when they have the same sale. Also, the wife has put the cease and desist on my American craft beer buying. I am not mad, I agree and I have taken it one step further. Like some type of junky I am going to try and go the entire month without purchasing beer. I know a monumental undertaking, sort of like this one. 😉

Mongo Double IPA by Port Brewing Company happens to be the last of the April purchases. Rich shared one a few weeks back, so this is my second go around with Mongo. Named after a cat that passed away at the brewery, Mongo is a huge hop bomb with a solid combination with West Coast hops and spice hops. The extra zing the spice adds to the finish cuts through the other hops and lessens their affect.

It seems that Port continues to make some cheap (I don’t mean that in a bad way) IPAs that are oh so easy to throw back. I believe the Mongo is a year round release, in spite of it being the first time I remember seeing it in these parts, so I plan on being a frequent flier. Enjoy!

Aroma: 10, Taste: 9, Look: 9, Drinkability: 9, Overall: 9.3
