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.

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.

peteinSD (1377) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 23, 2012
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 (8136) - 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.

Poured into a pint glass. Color is a cloudy amber. Aroma is mild but has floral hops. Flavor is light bready malts at the start and turns into a hoppier finish. Palate is light bodied and has a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall a good IPA.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - SEP 18, 2011
A clear amber beer with a decent creamy head that sticks around and leaves lace. Smells of piney hops, a bit of citrus, and some caramel malt. Flavor is not so much hop flavor as crystal malt, with a decent dose of bitterness to finish.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 8, 2011
22oz bottle. Pours a murky orange color; fine-bubbled off-white head with solid lacing. Dank, sweet and orangey aroma; amarillo shows through, along with some candied sweetness and a bit of alcohol. Muddled but tasty, in a phrase. Medium-full body, modest CO2. Chewy candied maltiness, with the orange character running up against that juicy orange hop note; lightly warming, a slight coarseness in the presentation, but overall a delicious (if muddled) IPA. Seems bulkier than 6.5%, but that’s mostly residual sweetness. Medium-length finish: toasty, citrusy, a bit sweet.

thetmaxx (746) - West Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 7, 2011
This was poured from the gift pack I received from the brewery. Aroma is nice, cleanly hopped. Flavor is mildly bitter, but not overly for a regular ipa. Overall its pretty great!
