This pours a deep copper color with a decent head and lingering lacing. The smell is understated, with earthy, herb infused traces. It has a rich creamy mouth feel. It does not have the heavy hop blast of most IPA's which will likely cause many to downgrade this, but I really loved the taste. It reminds me more of a full bodied ale than an IPA with it's even creamy blend. The sage and juniper berries are very apparent and give this a one of a kind flavor that is a pleasant find.

The flagship of the company as well as it should be. Very good IPA.

This pours much darker than I expected, like you might expect of a dense Amber. A dark copper, with a light khaki head (22oz into tulip). The bottle declares juniper berries and sage. The sage is evident right in the nose with some piney hops (I mean, Mammoth, has to be pine - am I under the influence of longing for my youth of 6 hour drives pre-dawn to ski until I couldn't stand?). The juniper berries add a tart, sharp point to the nose.

And so the flavor does deliver as the label declares with the sage evident and the juniper berries adding some pop to the heavy pine hops. Really nice blast of bitter. However, the malt balance is a little light. The mouthfeel was also a little light bodied for my expectations in a DIPA. This is a tasty tasty concept beer - a concept I like. Would prefer a bit more body.
