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.

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.

Nice strong floral hoppy nose and the mouth makes due on its promise. A nice complex medium-bodied hoppilicious IPA.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

A hazy orange beer with a fine though collapsing white head. The aroma is lovely grassy and hoppy - and so is the flavor.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
