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.

badlizard (5535) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle. Clear orange with a fluffy off white head. Herbal tea, hops, and caramel aroma. Tastes of caramel, sage, light juniper, and eucalyptus like flavors and an earthy toffee finish and moderate bitterness. Interesting.

alexsdad06 (7031) - Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle shared by drsordr in Reno. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has big herbal notes of juniper and sage with some caramel malts. The flavor has more juniper and sage herbal character, caramel malt, grass; not a normal dipa. Certainly worth trying.

SDalkoholic (2232) - Linda Vista, California, USA - APR 22, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Appeared as a medium amber hue that created a thick foam cap head which eventually retreats. Aroma is strange with a funky combination of green hop pellets and a slight whiff of peppermint similar to a broken York candy. Possible chance of alcohol comes through the nose as well but the smell of this beer is not to my liking. The drink is just the same except the malts seem to outweigh the hops used in this IPA with a sweet and bread like flavor but the sharp bitterness of the hops used really stabs the bitter taste buds on my tongue and I mean this in very bad way. This is an IPA I would trash during a conversation about IPA’s made in California but that’s just my honest opinion since I found little satisfaction while drinking this.

Theydon_Bois (12736) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle at Craft Beer Clerkenwell thanks to Ken, 09/03/13. Clear golden amber with a medium sized off white cap. Nose is hops, sugars, herbal qualities, spice rack, thyme, lemon. Taste comprises hops, pine, caramel malt, grapefruit, toffee. Full end of medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitterness and spice in the finish. Good stuff.

teorn88 (3599) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2013
50cl bottle at CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to Ken. It pours a very deep amber/orange with nice off-white head. Sweet malt, floral hops, grapefruit, strong juniper berries, sage. Interesting and full bodied, but you need to like sage and juniper. This was quite in your face.
