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.

This pours a very deep copper/amber body with a dinkus white head. Pleasant aroma of tart oranges, tangerines, and pink grapefruit atop a sweet caramel base. This has a thick mouthfeel. Tastes okay, but somewhat of a disappointment because the aroma promised more hop bitterness. Chewy caramel. The finish is candy sweet with a mild earthy bitterness.

I sampled this brew in Bridgeport Calif. at $10.00 a 6 pack! A good IPA but not great. Good color, and head. Taste of carmel and citrus. Not much in the way of hops. I like a little more body and aftertaste in a IPA and this beer fell a little short but better than the usual.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - AUG 10, 2006
12oz bottle poured clear amber with very little carbonation and almost no head. Aroma has a good citrus and grapefruit hopping with a slightly sweet malt background. Taste is big on hops all around with some nice malt tones and a small alcohol bite. Overall a very enjoyable IPA that fits well among all the other west coast beers.

kramer (4994) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2006
12 oz bottle, via fordest. Pours a clear copper with a fizzy off-white head that faded quickly to a thin film. No sediment in bottle. Very grainy and husky aroma with a little toasted and bready malts and a light piney hoppiness. Alot of graininess in the flavor as well. The hoppiness is there, but pretty restrained. The malt is light as well. Mouthfeel is light and slightly watery in texture with quite a bit of fizzy carbonation. Overall, a below average IPA to me.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2006
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.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2006
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 (2005) - 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.
