light, thin on the palate. smells sweet. very easy to drink. someone else said it is "full-bodied"? maybe this is a new recipe with a different label? I like it. it's not the best, but it goes down very nicely, very easily; and at 6.5%, why is that not a great beer?

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.
