Port Brewing’s Mongo Double IPA Hits Bottles

Port Brewing’s Double IPA has arrived for the first time in the bottle.  It’s a big imperial IPA named after a kitten. Yep, a kitten.

Beer Backstory From Port:
A tribute beer brewed to honor the memory of our fallen solider, Columbus (a brewery kitten we knicknamed Mongo), who used each of his 9 lives in a short — but brazen — 10 months on this planet.

Let’s just say the little dude lived a hard life. Only, he wasn’t so little. In fact, he was the largest of five kittens born at the brewery in 2009. Mongo was so large in fact that his brothers and sisters kicked him out of the litter.

I told you dude had it rough.

Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Columbus, Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade and Simcoe

Taste Expectations: Sweet caramel malts mix with big citrus & grapefruit hops.  Orange & pineapple show up too. It’s a big, balanced imperial ipa.

Availability: 22oz Bombers. Draft.  Year round.

8.5% ABV
