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.

Decent piney nose. Very flat pour, translucent amber in color. Nice hop bill translates to the flavor but the body is non-existant. I taste the simcoes and the amarillos, yes, and that’s good, but come on, have some backbone. The amber was watery, and so is this. Mammoth better amp the grain bill quick.

Got this one via trade with Fordest, thanks Sean! From bottle. Pours a deep amber with thin tan head. Nose is a nice bouquet of floral and citrus hops with caramel malts. Taste follows up nicely with a clean finish. Great drinking IPA.

fordest (1961) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - APR 24, 2006
12 oz bottle. Clear dark amber color with no head at all. I can barely get any bubbles even by swiling. Aromas are wonderful. Grassy, very sweet grapefruit, tangerine. Flavors are very piney and typical IPA--Nice Hop bite. Not much carbonation. I wonder if my bottle leaked air? Strange for an IPA.

chilehead (186) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - APR 5, 2006
Nice strong floral hoppy nose and the mouth makes due on its promise. A nice complex medium-bodied hoppilicious IPA.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Tap. Pours orange with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is nice; hoppy, piney, and sweet. The taste is very smooth for an IPA with this many hops. A good call when you’re back in Mammoth.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2007 OK body and malt flavors, but I thought it had a great sweet-sour-bitter thing going on. Interesting interplay between the three. Notes of fresh-cut flowers, light grass, herbs, and honey. Nicely rounded and well balanced. RERATE (bottle from Bishop, Ca.): Nice head, lace and color. Smooth texture. Noticeable alcohol; not bad, though. Toasty malts. "Green" hops; kind of one-dimensional, but OK.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a fine though collapsing white head. The aroma is lovely grassy and hoppy - and so is the flavor.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
I found this beer at Mammoth Liquor. The beer poured a brownish red color w/ orange highlights; slight head and lacing. The aroma was full of grapefruits and pine w/ a slight hint of flowers. The flavor was of light oranges and pine. The mouthfeel was light and carbonated.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Ths IPA pours with an amber body topped by a thin head with some lacing. The aroma is full of grapefruit zest with a little pine, a touch of sweet malt and notes of flowers. The flavor is slightly sweet yet bitter with notes of grapefruit and pine. Seems a little weak, but still not bad. Light to medium bodied and smooth.

joet (2052) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - OCT 21, 2004
dark for the style -- a deep copper, white foam very hoppy , a bit on the sweet side for the style. Out of style it’s a very a very hoppy, carmelly beer lightly salty and smidgen of peat in a light medium body.
