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 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.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2012
A clear golden colored beer, with a nice off white head. The aroma of sweet fruits, like citrus, orange and mango. There are some hops. The taste of sweet fruits, with a little caramel and hop bitter. The aftertaste is sweet with gentle bitter.

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.

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.

Can. Thanks to Mar Mar for bringing this to me from Mammouth. A golden color with a white head. A nice hop aroma and bitter aftertaste. A delightful and easy drinkin’ IPA.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle(6.5%) from Hi-Time Wine. Dark amber in color on the pour. Slightly sticky hop aromas. Fairly bitter brew. Not super hoppy. Fairly easy to drink.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 25, 2009
12oz bottle. Light amber color with some sediment from the bottle conditioning, capped by a clinging head. OK, this is where it gets weird. This is two shades away from being a great IPA, but something with the hop combo they use gives it this spicy, oniony vegetal aroma and flavor that just does not really work. The aroma has a nice hop intensity. The flavor has a nice dry, toasted malt base, higher bitterness, and plenty of hop flavor. The hops are spicy and floral, and if it werent for the vegetal character, I really think I would love this beer. Hopefully this is a crop quirk that might go away in the next year because it feels like this is a well made beer.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Ths IPA pours with an amber body topped by a thin head with some lacing. The aroma is full of grapefruit zest with a little pine, a touch of sweet malt and notes of flowers. The flavor is slightly sweet yet bitter with notes of grapefruit and pine. Seems a little weak, but still not bad. Light to medium bodied and smooth.

Thanks to BLG for this! Pours a dark gold with a small white head. Aroma is grapefruit and biscuity malts. Taste is a nicely rounded grapefruit hop flavours and the sweetness from the malt.
