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.

Ungstrup (34639) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2009
Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has strong notes of hops and citrus peal, as well as some notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, malt, alcohol, over ripe fruits, and spices, leading to a dry grapefruity finish. Nice one. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

GABF. Clear amber beer. Very aromatic and bittering hops with a medicinal note. The aroma alone made me sneeze! 3.

Hazy amber - brown beer, good pale tan head. Light palate, semi dry and crispy. Creamy malt provides silky smoothness. Hops are minty and piney. Whisper of orange. The sage blends in nicely here. The juniper adding a nice subtle fruit. Finishes smooth and malty creamy with fresh hop spice. Nicely thought out IPA - the additions sepperating it out from the crowd. Very drinkable.

Leighton (18668) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thank you Ken! Pours red-gold with a fine, creamy white head. Spicy pine in the nose, hints of ginger. Medium to big sweet flavor, lots of toasty, bready malts, hints of dry brown sugar. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately resinous to finish, some juicy berriea, bitter pine, sweet bread. Not bad.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is amber in color with a creamy off-white head. S: The amount of sage in this beer is nearing ridiculous. And when you get passed the sage, there is juniper, and a lot of that too. Overall, a very vegetal and wild aroma. T: A solid bitterness which is really the only thing that is reminiscent of an IPA in this beer. Lots of herbal notes, and the sage just takes over this beer. M: Medium in terms of both body and carbonation. D: This was just bad. I like sage in reasonable amounts in food, and juniper is a good herb as well (I’m a big gin fan), but this just does not work.
