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.

Fatehunter (1591) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2013
It poured a half finger of head on a clear, amber colored body. The aroma is nice with lemon and straw. The taste is smooth with mild bitterness. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. A fine IPA and a really easy drinker, nothing special but good.

12 Fl OZ ($9.99 6 pack) pretty good but not in the same ranking as the other IPAs i’ve had recently, this one falls short and I can tell it has that rang out dish cloth taste at the end.

euniceradio (97) - Colton, California, USA - APR 19, 2015
Pours clear deep amber. Sufficient head. Aroma is not hoppy but like buttered cracker crust with slight citrus. Taste is malty sweet with tropical fruit and bitter finish with grapefruit and some alcohol that lasts. Mouthfeel is typical.

It tastes like you’re driving up the 395 along the Eastern Sierra. The sage and juniper in are so good. It’s a solid unique IPA.

Purchased this beer in 22 oz bomber from Backyard Bottle Shop & Tap Room in Murrieta CA. Poured a clear medium yellow with a 1" inch foam head that settled to a skim after a few minutes. Some lacing noted. Aroma was lightly grainy and crackers, followed by earthy notes, with an almost stale cardboard aroma. I did’t pick up any citrus, pine, or dank type aromas. Medium body with normal for style carbonation. Flavor was similar to saltine crackers with some very light grapefruit hop flavor, I found this beer to be crisp with little sweetness. Medium for style bitterness at the end. Again, I tasted a little "cardboard" like flavor. Overall, I found this IPA to be at the lower end of better American west coast style IPAs. I think if this was brewed with Pilsner yeast as a lager, it would tasted more like a nice hoppy Pilsner.

Ibrew2or3 (7361) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 29, 2014
22oz bomber pours up with a clear copper body that supports a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up some pine hops, a sliver of orange gummy bear, a bit of grapefruit and then just noticeable herbal to earthy notes. The taste starts with snippets of citrus and tropical fruity juiciness and then more and more grapefruit like bitterness laced with a thin ribbon of resiny hoppiness murmur to the surface. It gets to modest levels of juiciness midway and into the finish. Pretty nice but it is coming across a bit long of tooth (but as usual full price at the bottle shop).

kaser (3791) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2014
22oz bottle from Bine and Vine, poured at home. Clear amber with white head. Fruits cherry and hops on the nose. Taste is a basement/dank, yet fruity and citrus. Pretty good, not the best.

ogivlado (6167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottled 355ml. -Clear dark golden coloured, small off-white head, nutty hoppy nose. Moderate malty, caramel, fruity orange hoppy and touch of alcohol with notes of wood in the finish. Not bad.

"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"

Defreni (2775) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2014
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.
