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.

Bottle. Clear golden amber pour with a rocky off white head. Caramel, citrus, orange peel, sweet malts and bitterness. Decent enough, but there are many better options.

Pours a golden brown with almost no head. Nose and taste are a fairly well balanced blend of citric hops and earthy malts. Not a game changer but quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bytemesis (2568) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle. Sold as Tuolumne Meadows IPA in Yosemite Park. Pours clear amber with a medium head that has good staying power and some lacing. Nice hoppy aroma, with citrus taking the fore, backed by pine. Taste is hops dominated with a nice up-front punch of grapefruit, with a citrus/pine body and a lightly bitter finish. Smooth drinking and well crafted. Nice effort.

Arbitrary score 4/5 for Appearance, as nighttime conditions prevented correct assessment. Very orangey hops, bit sweet-smelling. Bit sticky-sweet flavour, again much orange(peel) oriented with bitter resiny components. Kafir lime. Sticky MF too, feels light bodied and oily. Pffff...

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2012
From 1 year old archive: Pours a great looking hazy amber with beige head. Aroma is filled with fruity esters with light caramel. Flavor is like malty wort but the hop profile doesn’t seem to be standing out to me but the hoppy bitter does, just kinda taste like a sweet tea.

Enjoyed a six pack or two or this beer last time I was up in Mammoth a few months ago. Pours a clear orange/yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma is pine, a grainy malt backbone, and some bitter hops. Taste was medium bitter hops, pine, perhaps some citrus, and a semi-rough malt finish. Mouthfeel was appropriate for the style with lively carbonation. In as stacked a category as IPA this beer doesn’t have any chance of standing out but I thought it was a nice enough beer.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2011
This brew is a clear orange-gold color with a medium bone white head that recedes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of herbal hops, malt and citrus fruits. The finish is moderately hoppy with a fruity aftertaste. Not exactly "epic’, but not bad either.
