4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reddish orange in unfiltered hue with a finger of head. Big boy aromas of dank hops, summer sage, and something that reminds me of gingersnap cookies. Medium boy, creamy and smooth, with a nice oatmeal cookie malt backbone and a resinous bite of hop bitterness. The sage is very present with just a hint of juniper. Everything is fantastic until the finish where the sage lends an astringent smack of bitter polyphenols that don’t want to let go of my tongue. A little sharp cheddar would clear this problem right up. If you like aggressive hops, you’ll most likely love this. I would prefer a little more malt sweetness.

Fad og flaske: Først taster siden flaske. Duften er tydelig lyng på den ufede måde. Smagen er næsten udrikkelig og den blev til et drainpour som flaske. Helt klart den mest skuffende øl i Mammoths lineup.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Lodgepole general store in Sequoia National Park. The pour is clear golden dark copper with a one inch well formed light tan head. The aroma is caramel malt, sweet resin and pine hop. The taste is sap pine, sweet, almost honey with caramel toasted malt and some alcohol warmth in the back. Herbal menthol thing happening as it warmed. The palate is medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Dry bitter hot finish.

Very floral IPA. Need to like Juniper and Coriander to enjoy this one. A lot of citrus up front after warm. Overall very tasty and balanced.

Bottle. Thanks to Mar Mar for bringing this up from Mammoth. A brownish copper color with a lush tan head. A semi-sweet, pine, floral and juniper aroma that was quite nice. It is smooth with a balanced bitterness.

Slightly hazy amber color. Sage and hops blend for the smell. Nice bitter but controlled back by the sage. Palette left with hop sage aftertaste.

Bottle at the brewery. No hops in this batch (according to the server), but the juniper berries give it a prominent piney hopped flavor. Alcohol well-hidden. Nice carbonation. Long herbal finish.
