This is a great beer! Certainly a "mountainy" beer.

Fresh juniper/sage on the nose, lots of it.

Crisp and juicy citrusy and piney hops with a little biscuity malt, sweet and floral layer with juniper and sage, a touch of wild blackberries. Finishes with a warm faint caramely malt note, again with hops and juniper lingering on the palate.

I grew up cruising up the 395 to the Mammoth/ surrounding Sierra area, so perhaps there's a bit of nostalgia for me with this beer. However, I think the use of local juniper, sage, and wild hops is not a mere gimmick but actually creates a unique and delicious beer. While the juniper and sage are featured and very present, they do not dominate the palate but pair and bring out great flavors of the hops. Very drinkable and enjoyable for many occasions.

cheers
