COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Modeled on the beers brewed for the long sea voyage from England to India, our India Pale Ale unites a strong malt backbone with a bitter and aromatic finish. Hopped at 2 pounds per barrel with Horizons, Simcoes and Amarillos, our IPA is fully prepared for the long journey from the slopes to the hot tub.

joohefner (380) - Isla Vista, California, USA - JAN 3, 2008
browned amber with medium light head. fairly typical IPA, emphasizing floral grapefruit hops. slightly sweet and not too bitter. easy drinking and a good choice for anyone who doesn’t like too bitter of a beer
Earlier Rating: 8/25/2007 Total Score: 2.9
clear orange-amber color with full medium tan head. strong floral hop aroma with a light spiciness. medium light body. very floral taste with medium bitterness, and caramel way in the back. seems a little out of balance with the finishing hops, doesnt let enough of the beer through

Aroma was citrusy and caramel malty with a slight spice to it. Flavor had a nice pungency to it. I thought this was a lot better than the ratings suggested. I would probably drink this if it was available to me.

mjg74 (2491) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle(6.5%) from Hi-Time Wine. Dark amber in color on the pour. Slightly sticky hop aromas. Fairly bitter brew. Not super hoppy. Fairly easy to drink.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2008 Nice citrus aroma, mixed in with a little peach, but that might be butterscotch. Color is mostly an amber orange. Flavor is a nice hoppy mix of citrus and fruity malt. Nice bitter finish with a sweet ending. Definitley resiny. A nice IPA.

DenverLogan (796) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Bottle and on tap in Mammoth Lakes for the Beer and Bluesapalooza fest last weekend. I’m drinking one now and it has a different label and is called Epic IPA. Amber orange, small lingering head. Straw and oily hop aroma, but not too strong. Relatively smooth and easy drinking IPA with slight hop oil resin, citrus, honey and soapy flavors, but nothing too strong or bad. All in all not a big rough IPA but flavorful.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2007
Bottle, courtesy of bu11zeye. The pour reveals a clear orange color with a thin white head. The aroma is appealing, the hops have a resinous, citrusy quality and some malt is also present. The flavor also has the citrusy, resinous hops and malt but it suffers from the lack of carbonation, it feels flat and that’s too bad since this IPA has a lot of potentieal.

I remember a long time ago this tasted pretty good. Not any longer. Below avg IPA - light, watery, no kick to it and nothing special. Go there for the mountain, not the beer.
