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 - Pours hazy copper with a two finger head that laces well. Naturally it smells of hops with some citrus and floral notes. the flavor is well hopped but also pretty well balanced. it has a pleasantly bitter finish. Tasty!

Pour is a clear copper with a huge white head. Aroma is a decent hop followed by some cracker malt and a bit of sweet caramel. Flavor is a minimal hop with a more chewy earthy malt. This was not what I was expecting from an IPA from the west coast. Way malt heavy and the hops have disappeared. There is no date on the bottle so this could be months old. Put a frigging best by or bottled on date on IPA’s!

Bottle at Kingsnight tasting. Clear golden with white head. Lots of grass and weeds, lime, marijuana, dried herbs, caramel, dried flowers. Under medium sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with a bit slick feel and under medium carbonation.

theisti (3880) - Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2014
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.

BelgianBeerGal (3837) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2010
12oz bottle bought in Yosemite National Park. Pours a cloudy orange colour with a small off-white head and nice lacing. Pretty soft aroma of non-descript hops but definitely fruity more than piney. Rather gentle flavour too with the only bitterness really showing up in the finish. Better than expected honestly.

DYCSoccer17 (3629) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 20, 2011
16 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Graduate. The aroma is nice and hoppy with pine and citrus orangey notes. Some grapefruit is pleasant, too. Nice aroma. Transparent copper-orange body with a small, off-white head present. Trace lacing. Starts lightly hopped with floral notes before this becomes very husky and toasted with lots of tannins in the middle. Finishes with a scant herbal hop character and light bitterness. Epic IPA, eh? The only thing epic about this is how forgettable it is...

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium head and good lacing. Nice hoppy aroma thats mostly citrus and some 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.
