Bottle. Clear golden amber pour with a rocky off white head. Caramel, citrus, orange peel, sweet malts and bitterness. Decent enough, but there are many better options. TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2012

Pours a golden brown with almost no head. Nose and taste are a fairly well balanced blend of citric hops and earthy malts. Not a game changer but quite good.

Bottle. Sold as Tuolumne Meadows IPA in Yosemite Park. Pours clear amber with a medium head that has good staying power and some lacing. Nice hoppy aroma, with citrus taking the fore, backed by pine. Taste is hops dominated with a nice up-front punch of grapefruit, with a citrus/pine body and a lightly bitter finish. Smooth drinking and well crafted. Nice effort.

Arbitrary score 4/5 for Appearance, as nighttime conditions prevented correct assessment. Very orangey hops, bit sweet-smelling. Bit sticky-sweet flavour, again much orange(peel) oriented with bitter resiny components. Kafir lime. Sticky MF too, feels light bodied and oily. Pffff...

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Earth and pine aroma with grapefruit. Pine and earthy flavor with grapefruit. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Pine and grapefruit linger with earth, light dust, and light malt. SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2012
From 1 year old archive: Pours a great looking hazy amber with beige head. Aroma is filled with fruity esters with light caramel. Flavor is like malty wort but the hop profile doesn’t seem to be standing out to me but the hoppy bitter does, just kinda taste like a sweet tea. peteinSD (1469) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Enjoyed a six pack or two or this beer last time I was up in Mammoth a few months ago. Pours a clear orange/yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma is pine, a grainy malt backbone, and some bitter hops. Taste was medium bitter hops, pine, perhaps some citrus, and a semi-rough malt finish. Mouthfeel was appropriate for the style with lively carbonation. In as stacked a category as IPA this beer doesn’t have any chance of standing out but I thought it was a nice enough beer.

This brew is a clear orange-gold color with a medium bone white head that recedes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of herbal hops, malt and citrus fruits. The finish is moderately hoppy with a fruity aftertaste. Not exactly "epic’, but not bad either.
