"the recipe or quality of this beer must have changed over the last two or three years (as of 12/08 the last review is from 2006!)...i wouldn’t call this beer weak, thin, or english style. it pours/looks like you’re standard ipa, with a great, inviting citrus & pine aroma. nothing super complex in the beer, but the flavor is good. nice balance, with a lean towards the hops, medium bodied. it actually reminds me of Stone’s ipa, just to a lesser degree. good, but not that good. i’ll get it again. better than their 395 IPA. 10/10-lackluster the last couple times, including this time in a can. downgrade from 4 to 3.7"

Flaske: Både som epic og som toulumne. Orange klar øl med et stort skumhoved. Duften er mango, citrus og lidt græs. Dejlig smag, næstbedste Mammoth efter Blondibock.

From a can into a goblet.From the moment I open this this beer and poured it, i could smell the hops and could tell it had a a lot of malt from the amber appearance. I would buy this again as well saved a few cans for gifts

12 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Lodgepole general store in Sequoia National Park. Enjoyed as “Tuolumne Meadows IPA”. The pour is hazed orange copper with a smallish off white head. The aroma is faint floral hops along with cracker malt. The taste is a pleasant blend of the dry floral, softly bitter hops and the cracker toasted malt. The palate is medium to light bodied with soft carbonation and a clean dry softly bitter mineral finish. Nice.

On tap at Anthill Pub. A bit of pine aroma with a strong caramel malt scent. Crystal clear orange / amber with a white head. All the aromas follow right into the flavor along with a bit of grapefruit and pith. There’s an earthy almost sour bitterness that follows this. Leaves a nice bitter leaf taste behind. Very good IPA.

M- Medium bodied with a good deal of carbonation.
D- This is a very drinkable but fairly tame IPA

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Little hop presence, dominated by malt. Pours a bit hazy with just a bit of head. Taste is like the nose, a bit sweet for me. Not particularly memorable.
I don’t think this is fresh beer. These showed up at a local store, allegedly just picked up from the brewery. 2013 stamped on the bottle. If you’re distributing 3 month (or more!) old IPA you are not doing your beer -- or the drinker -- right.
