Monumental IPA is a rich, clear copper in color. Our flagship India Pale Ale exhibits floral aromas and flavors of citrus with piney-resin all in combination with malty, toasty caramel background notes. Our unique twist with this IPA is that it demonstrates the delicious, yet elusive perfect balance between a hoppy bitterness and malt flavors.
We believe that Monumental IPA is a great example of a complex and perfectly balanced East Coast style of IPA.
