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.

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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariels place. Thanks Rotem. Clear orange with a beige head. Aroma of juniper, a bit of sage, and stale hops. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of marmalade, juniper, soapy, stale hops, and strong bitterness. Medium-bodied.

12 oz bottle. Tasted on 6/10/15. Bottle from Alisha. Drank from Spiegal IPA glass. This one was a different IPA with the color almost purple with a unique flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Dark brown color. Malty and hoppy notes in the nose. Strong hop and malt sides balances out quite well. The aftertaste is dry tart and almost a bit roasty.

SinH4 (4584) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - APR 25, 2015
Amber color with white head. Aroma of loads of resinous hops, sage, spices. Taste is resinous, spicy, the sage is there, warming bitter finish. Smooth carbonation, heavy mouthfeel. Very good!

12 oz. bottle, pours a fairly clear dark reddish amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is very spicy, with loads of sage upfront, followed by some juniper and woody resinous hops -- its mostly spices on the nose though. Flavour is certainly unique for the style, bringing out the sage upfront, followed by woody resinous hops which bury the spices later on the finish. On paper, this sounds like a bad idea, and upon smelling it, it also seemed like itd be pretty bad -- but this is actually quite nice. Balanced, hoppy and drinkable. Very good.

Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Disclaimer: I threw this one in the freezer, and there were some ice chunks as I did not take it out soon enough. Powerful aroma of fresh hops. Mild head, dark reddish brown for an IPA. A lot of fresh hops in this, very strong hop flavor.

Dark amber/brown color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of malt, floral hops, rye, & rich spice; Flavor of sweet malt, caramel, pine hops, spice (sage), and citrus. Finish is bitter; Nicely balanced; Different but good - the spice can be a bit much at times though.

On draft. No particular aroma, which is a surprised. Flavor starts with sage but the juniper dominates everything at the finish. Hard to ID hop flavors beyond tart citrus, but theyre obvz there. Weird but fun.

kaser (6151) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Reddish but clear pour from 22oz bomber from bine and vine. White head, thin ring. Smell is gingerbread, cookie, and sweetness. Sweet and sugary, honey, slightly fruity. This doesnt seem at all like an IPA to me, but it is tasty, not sure what i would categorize it as otherwise. Rating based on taste/aroma.
