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.

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.

bottle by way of riversideAK... poured a hazy dark copper color. very rich looking with an off white head and a bit of lacing. initial blast of floral and piney hops leaves quickly and leaves me wanting more. there’s also notes of caramel and grapefruit. flavor is caramel and ruby red grapefruit as well. it has a slight bitter dry finish. medium body with a slightly creamy texture. nice find...

From a can purchased in Yosemite. Pours clear amber brown with a thin white head. Tastes like grapefruit, hops, slightly nutty and musky. Low/medium body and medium carbonation. Smells creamy, nutty, bready.

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.

(En fût au Hooley’s Irish pub): Un nez goulûment juteux et miellé qui invite follement. En bouche c’est indéniablement machable et envahissant, les fruits sont presque en purée, la finale un brin rouillée et molle.

Having a beer that get the idea of hops is appearant in this beer, aroma of citrus and grass. The taste is hoppy but not all together malty, it doesn’t punch you in the face

Tap at Mammoth mountain. Pours copper with a frothy off white head, nice lacing. Nice nose of citrus hops and caramel malts. Medium bitter on the finish.

keepersj12 (2932) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2011
My favorite of the samples. This poured an amber with a big foamy head. The aroma was citrus with a touch of pine and sweet malt. The flavor was big on the pine and a touch of sweetness. All in all, pretty decent.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 17, 2011
12oz can. Rating #80. Bright orange/amber with a little haze and a nice lacing dirty white head. Mild aroma, light pine with grapefruit showing up in the finish. Nice bitter bite, mild citrus and no flaws, pretty good drinker actually. (1646)

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.
