Review: Port Brewing Mongo IPA

This is one of my all-time favorite beers. It has a great balance between hops, citrus, and malt. Watch out though… this beer is easy drinking, and at 8.5%, it can sneak up on you. I can recall one lovely afternoon a few years ago. I didn’t have to work for some reason. My boyfriend had a meeting at UCLA; he said it wouldn’t take long. I decided to post up at Barney’s Beanery in Westwood. They had Mongo on draft and I had a couple (possibly a few) while I was waiting. When he picked me up, I told him I was “Bongo for Mongo”. Ever since then, “Bongo” has been shorthand for “tipsy” between us. Really good beer. I highly recommend it if you like IPAs.
