Description 

Pouring a slightly hazy royal yellow, Lundi abounds with citrus notes on the nose. The first sip is soft and juicy with a pleasant sweetness thanks to the malt backbone of pilsner, oats and wheat. It contains all the tangerine and grapefruit notes of Mosaic, Simcoe and El Dorado hops, with little of the expected bitterness.

Lundi by Monday Night Brewing is an American IPA and is being evaluated as an American IPA (category 21A from the 2015 BJCP Beer Style Guidelines). American IPAs are hop-forward beers typically expressing American or new world hop characters and are most typically citrusy, piney or resiny in character. Lundi is brewed with Mosaic, Simcoe and El Dorado hops and measures up at 7.1% ABV and 55 IBUs.

Lundi pours light golden in color with a small, splotchy white head and slight haze. The aroma is prominently and appropriately hop focused with aromas of tropical fruit, tangerine, and resin; just a hint of malt exists behind the aggressive hop aromas. The flavor is similar to the aroma with citrusy flavors of mango and tangerine melding with resiny and piney characters. The malt flavor is very low with a medium-light body.  The bitterness is moderate (not as aggressive as some American IPAs) but the low body and drying finish provide similar sensations as do the more bitter IPAs. The finish has a strong, lingering hop flavor of tropical, citrusy fruits among a light, clean malt backbone.

This is a very well-brewed American IPA with a well-blended hop profile over a neutral malt palate. Despite the low malt backbone, the bitterness and dryness do not become overwhelming as some of the drier American IPAs can be. Hopheads, seek this IPA out. Enjoy!
