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 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.

Zymurgeist2 (1643) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 24, 2016
From bomber to glass. The sage takes over this beer and makes it hard to drink. Moderate low aspects of cookie malt. Clear amber-orange with full off-white head. Ended up dumping this one.

Flarra hos Biskopen Helsingborg. Mörkt rostfärgad . Doftar gammal källare ja en rätt tung men svag doft. Medelfyllig i munnen. Medelbeska. Smakar väldigt klassiskt rent Dipa. Eftersmak lite vatten faktiskt.. Nja en rätt trisst men ok Dipa. Testas ihop med All Inn Big blind . Åh härrejövlar vad god Big blind är. En svensk Dipa mycket bättre än en USA Dipa. !!!!!! Fantastiskt ju

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!
