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.

A clear light brown colored beer with a beige head. The aroma some perfume with juniper, some fruits like citrus, malt and hop. The taste of sweet fruits, with strong juniper and some bitter hops. The aftertaste is bitter with berries, a little sweet.

Pours a very deep amber/orange with nice off-white head. Sweet malt, floral hops, grapefruit, caramel, herb, and a definite flavor of sage. Complex and full bodied. This stuff is sweet, bitter, and spicy. I am very glad to have tried it.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Interesting beer with a lot going on. First impression is that itís very tea-like, with yerba mate qualities. Juniper and sage are definitely there as well. Toasty malts. Piney hops. Balanced sweetness and bitterness. Drying, tannin-like finish.

bytemesis (2568) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark clear amber with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly with good lacing. Aroma has strong notes of pine and citrus hops as well as toasted malt / caramel. Flavor is well balanced; initial blast of citrus hops, followed by strong roasted malt character, finishing extremely bitter into the aftertaste. Alcohol is well masked in this complex beer.

peteinSD (1280) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Sample at brewery. Clear orange appearance with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is herbal with sage and floral with some light hop bitterness in the finish. Taste is a heavy malt presence with herbal flavors and some light bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit thick. Not your standard double IPA but a nice beer uf you like herbal, floral beers.

boFNjackson (4022) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Bottle... Poured amber/orange with a thin head. I like sage and I like juniper but I thought they clashed quite a bit here. Easy drinking, noticeable hop bitterness and earthiness with malt sweetness. Some botanical characters, spicy sage and earthy juniper. It all seemed there, but didnít work together the way I would hope.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 A -pours deep red/brown with high tan head and strong lacing. S - Aromas of juniper berry and sage to start. Grassy and piney hops to follow. T - Nice strong grassy and piney hops on the nose. A bit resinous with notes of alfalfa. Nice subtle malty middle and ending. The juniper berry and sage are infused throughout, and are a very welcome addition. O - A great IPA, well balanced with malts. Juniper berry, and predominant sage really adds to this brew. 8
