I like my IPAs very hoppy with an above average bitterness on the finish. This beer is as subtle as it gets with the hops. The finish is smooth, which is not what I look for in an IPA (as stated). Very dark in color for an IPA. On first sip, I was thinking the bar poured me a Pale, but the subtle hops on the finish was enough to think otherwise. For IPAs, this one doesnt cut it, which is curious to me because the Brewery is great.

Poured from bottle. 6.5%. Pretty weak ipa. I drink ipa's pretty much exclusively. This is one of the poorest ones I've had in a long time. Do not recommend. Has a coffee undertone, almost like a brown. It's doody juice.

If you are a mountain guy and have done your outdoor time in the Mammoth area, you will understand this beer. They spice it up with the real no kidding local flora (flowers, herbs, shrubs). So if you've been hiking, mountain biking, climbing, backpacking, fishing, etc., out in the Mammoth area, you smell all that stuff.

Later on when you crack one open, or get a draught from a local joint (WAY AMAZING), it puts you right back in the woods. Very cool connection.

The color is great. The suds/head/foam are good, right up there with the best. It's got some kick (alcohol content). It's a fun beer to drink. 2 pints is good for me.

If you like IPA's and like the forest and all it's wonderful scents, you will get a kick out of this. If you are a strict IPA guy basically want pine tar and heavy alcohol, you won't like this very much.

Pretty basic IPA. The only real character that intrigues me is this slight tea taste. Which at the same time doesn't wow me. It lacks something, and the malt character wins the war over the hops.

A rather full bodied IPA, reddish in its malt profile but not sweet', just coppery and bigger. The hops come across a bit generic to me, with middle of the road bitterness and alphas. The mouthfeel is nice though, super frothy in texture grabbing up the Pune hop aspect. The carbonation is upbeat too, lightening a sturdy grainy base. I liked the other mammoth beers I had better than their IPA, but it's always nice to drink out of market beers and see what's out there. Probably too big to drink more than a few of, it would definitely get filling.
