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.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 13, 2012
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 donít want to let go of my tongue. A little sharp cheddar would clear this problem right up. If you like aggressive hops, youíll most likely love this. I would prefer a little more malt sweetness.

Bottle. Two finger frothy beige head. Clear copper coloured body. Aroma is weak, but malt dominated, even at high temperatures. Some floral hops as well, but not too hoppy. Very well balanced on the tongue!

fkoolen (746) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2015
Draught at Mammoth Lake Brewery. Light amber colour, offwhite creamy head. Interesting nose with juniper berry and sweet herbal notes; in the taste theyíre less prominent, medium caramel malty, big bitterness in the finish. Good body, medium carbonation.

ADfan (737) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Beer pours reddish brown with a nice head. Aroma has a mild citrus with some hops. Taste has some toasted malts with some floral notes. Mild bitterness on the finish. Pretty good beer.

Hoprider (264) - DENMARK - SEP 19, 2015
Hazy orange pour with 1 finger creamy, rocky head. Funny juniper nose.. Some pine too. Caramel malt but not a lot of hops. The taste follows suit with that funny juniper thing resulting in a peculiar aftertaste. Like when you breathe out after drinking a dram od whisky. So oak, booze and again some juniper and berries. The finnish is the most representative of an ipa. Weird.

Barreras (1417) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 10, 2015
Pours a light copper color with a juniper and sage aroma. Taste is smooth with an easy drinking malt flavor. Flavor is a little sweet, with a well balanced aftertaste. Nice and enjoyable.

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 wonít rate it low as I was expecting and looking for a tuff IBU but as a beer this was pretty good. If youíre seeking that tuff IBU this isnít 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 Arielís 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.
