Mammoth Brewing company is proud to our second annual Wet Harvest beer. This year, we chose to brew an imperial pale lager. Using pristine alpine water from the headwaters of the Owens Valley and cascade hops from Banner Springs Ranch in the Glass Mountains. The hops were harvested and bought to our brewery - still warm and moist from the field for every step of the brewing process. From mash-in though filtration. Using few speciality malts and a unique lager yeast the beer has all the hop character and bitterness of any IPA but was fermented cold at 50 degree F so at to further highlight the aromatic qualities of these high altitude wet hops.

Pale yellow pour with a big fluffy white head. Beautiful lacing. Aroma is a little plasticy with some pine notes. Smells kind of green too. Flavor is a little buttery and a touch sweet. Some more light plastic. Something just tastes off.

On tap at brewery, took home a growler. One of the most delicious lagers ever!!! Color is a nice golden color. Good head and lacing. Aroma is very hoppy. The flavour is where you really notice the wet hops. You really wouldn’t even know this was a lager.
