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.

Reddish color poured from a bomber I got from Mammoth on a ski trip a couple of months back. A bit of sweetness, not as crisp as my favorite IPAs. Good, but a cut below the best.

I owe this beer to the old beer crew at Hi-Times/ Costa Mesa, Mike and his guys for turning me onto this, the new guys are a little weak i must say. Overall this is a big beer, smell, taste, finish, it is all dominated by that friggin juniper, and it all works. This has taken the IPA thing and moved on from the citrus to another shrub and it is refreshing. This beer alone is good stuff, but beyond that not so much, not very drinkable after the 22.

On tap at brewery. Appearance: Pours a deep amber gold with a nice dense offwhite head. Aroma: A big ol noseful of sage, menthyl, juniper, and other herbal goodness. No sign of hops or malt due to the huge herbal presense. Taste: Sage soda? Sweet malt, herbal spicy hops, and juniper berry. Mouthfeel: Thick, sticky, medium carbonation. Overall: Too herbal for my mouth to consider this a double IPA or any kind of IPA. A really fun, interesting beer, that I would love to marinade chicken breast with.

GABF. Clear amber beer. Very aromatic and bittering hops with a medicinal note. The aroma alone made me sneeze! 3.

Hazy amber - brown beer, good pale tan head. Light palate, semi dry and crispy. Creamy malt provides silky smoothness. Hops are minty and piney. Whisper of orange. The sage blends in nicely here. The juniper adding a nice subtle fruit. Finishes smooth and malty creamy with fresh hop spice. Nicely thought out IPA - the additions sepperating it out from the crowd. Very drinkable.

"Bomber courtesy of slowrunner split between a friend and I on a relaxing Friday evening. Not big or hoppy as an IIPA is supposed to be, but I found enjoyment from the well thought out additions of sage and juniper that make this beer stand out. The sage is upfront in the aroma and leads to a mild citrus and flowery profile. Soapy amber/copper body with a diminishing bubbly head and streaky lacing. Filling and surprisingly balanced. The malts and herbs seemed to subdue the hops quite a bit. Flavor is full of herbs and flowers along with caramel and fresh dough. The juniper and sage are easily detectable and really add a nice dimension. "

From notes. Amber/gold. Just a few bubbles. All hops in the aroma - resinous, pungent, floral, pine. Flavor is more balanced with malt notes of cookie and caramel. Light/medium body, low carbonation, weak on the palate. Meh.
