COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An ode to the Owens Valley and the Highway 395 corridor, this Double IPA is distinctly bolder than out Epic IPA and celebrates the aromas of wild local fresh hops, sage, and juniper.

12FL OZ ($7.99 4 pack) this was a pretty smooth Imperial IPA. usually these are over the top bitter and this was rather tame. I won’t rate it low as I was expecting and looking for a tuff IBU but as a beer this was pretty good. If you’re seeking that tuff IBU this isn’t it but this is very good.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Rotem. Clear amber with a bit stable head. Smell of sage, juniper, chamomile and fruity hops. Taste of juniper, quite malty with herbal bitterness, medium-bodied, all in all not very balanced.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Rotem. Clear dark bronze with a yellowish head. Honey, herbal and a little cinnamon aroma, honey and juniper bitterness in the mouth. Sticky and full-bodied, onion finish.

Well it looked beautiful in the glass. A gorgeous amber-brown with a big clumpy off-white head that has oodles of crazy lacing and fantastic retention. But, the rest is shit, poor aroma, taste and palate.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Rotem. Clear orange with a beige head. Aroma of juniper, a bit of sage, and stale hops. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of marmalade, juniper, soapy, stale hops, and strong bitterness. Medium-bodied.

12 oz bottle. Tasted on 6/10/15. Bottle from Alisha. Drank from Spiegal IPA glass. This one was a different IPA with the color almost purple with a unique flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown color. Malty and hoppy notes in the nose. Strong hop and malt sides balances out quite well. The aftertaste is dry tart and almost a bit roasty.

SinH4 (1132) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 25, 2015
Amber color with white head. Aroma of loads of resinous hops, sage, spices. Taste is resinous, spicy, the sage is there, warming bitter finish. Smooth carbonation, heavy mouthfeel. Very good!

12 oz. bottle, pours a fairly clear dark reddish amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is very spicy, with loads of sage upfront, followed by some juniper and woody resinous hops -- it’s mostly spices on the nose though. Flavour is certainly unique for the style, bringing out the sage upfront, followed by woody resinous hops which bury the spices later on the finish. On paper, this sounds like a bad idea, and upon smelling it, it also seemed like it’d be pretty bad -- but this is actually quite nice. Balanced, hoppy and drinkable. Very good.
