Limited release from July 2011. Mammoth Brew Co. just facebooked that, due to it's populatity, they are gonna do another run of this beer this month (October). Really looking forward to a fresh bottle.

A Mammoth local suprised me with this bottle when I brought him some goodies from down south. Split between myself an BdubleEdubleRUN after a long day out flyfishing on 10/1/11. 22oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a dark, burnt orange. Almost a red tinge to it. Huge, thick, 2-finger+ white head. Unbelievable lacing. The head on this beer is Mammoth (see what I did there?). Definitely dark for an APA.

S: Malty. Super malty and carmely. That is what I get right off the bat. A bit of yeastiness in there, and very light floral hops (assumming the hops have faded since it's July bottling).

T: One thing that really suprised me is a roasty flavor I wasn't expecting. Taste is predominately sticky carmel malts. This balances nicely with some floral hops at the finish. ESB malt is easy to pick out as well. For 7.5%, I was suprised at how little alcohol presence I got.

M: Great carbonation. This beer coats the mouth amazingly and has an almost buttery feel. Really digging this as I have never experienced it in a pale ale before.

O: This is not like your everyday pale ale. It's uniqueness is really tough to describe. I feel very fortunate to have gotten the chance to try it, and I cannot wait to get a fresh bottle (or 3) in my hands. IPA 395 is a really special Mammoth Brew Co. beer for me, but Devil's Post Pale Ale will absolutely challenge it for my favorite offering from the boys and girls at Mammoth Brew Co. This is a very good overall beer.

100th Review!! And happy it's with a relatively unknown beer that was a big surprise upon first sip in how good it was.

Poured into a 13oz tulip by the brewer himself (Thanks Jason!)

Very Hoppy for a Pale Ale but the malts have backed this one up very well as I believe the specimen in discussion here is 3 months old. This is admittedly moreso an IPA than a Pale Ale similar in my mind as Drake's 1500 and Three Floyds Alpha King are "Pale Ales."

Good juicy Grapefruit Hops upfront and mildly sweet caramel malts rounding this out and centennial hops bittering the finish combine for a HOME RUN. There is a very mildly noticeable smokey characteristic in the finish, only if you really look for it from the local Mammoth volcanic rock it's brewed with that adds to this beer's uniqueness.

I could drink ths beer ALL DAY. My only regret here is that I was not able to try this one fresh, within a month of bottling to be exact. Mammoth Brewing please add this as a regular rotation to your lineup. Rocks or no rocks, we have a winner here.

A: poured into a pint glass. pretty deep golden orange with a small off white head with good retention
S: piney and herbal with slight malty undertones
T: nice caramel maltyness with some herbal and pine hop. very strong malt dominance and a nice bitterness from the hops. slight lemon and citrus presence as well and the hot rock superboil makes the sweetness oh so nice. swallow brings another wave of bittersweet hop and malt fighting for dominance that lingers long after the drink is over
M: upper side of medium with soft carbonation. slightly slick and oily.
O: very impressive, good balance with great hop flavor and a very solid malt backbone making a very unique beer.

A bomber, poured into a DFH Signature Glass. This tasty brew is compliments of baybassboy and BdubleEdubleRUN from their LIF.

A: Very dark orange-brown, much darker than anticipated. Half-finger head dissipates quickly, leaving just a little cap on the beer. Lacing sticks to the side of the glass as the beer is enjoyed.

S: Solid mix of hops and malt. There's a surprisingly strong sweet notes from the malt, but they work well with the light, citrus hop aromas. The sweet, caramel malt hits you pretty hard, and the scent is definitely less than what I'd like from a pale ale.

T: Here we go, after the underwhelming nose I was a touch concerned, but this beer is tasty! Floral hops dominate, with a light hop bitterness midsip, and with a long-lasting bitterness in the finish. The caramel malts provide just enough of a backbone for the beer, while still allowing the hops to be showcased. I'm not the biggest fan of Centennial hops to be honest, but they work well here.

M: A little bit over-carbonated, but it coats your mouth nicely.

O: I liked this beer, though it doesn't really fit the pale ale style as I expected. I'm not entirely sure how I'd classify the beer, but I know I enjoyed drinking it. A unique experience, this beer is worth seeking to expand your views on pale ales.

Limited Release Pale Ale. Bomber bought at the brewery July 2.

7.5 % 50 IBU

On bottle: double pale ale brewed with ESB, crystal, and malanoidin malts, and centennial hops. Using superheated volcanic rocks in the tradition of an old world process to create a "superboil" this Devils Postpale Ale exhibits a unique maltiness imparted through the caramelization of wort not easily attained with a regular brew kettle

On to the review....

A- Pours a golden/copperish color with a 1-1/2 finger off white, pillowy head that sticks around for a while and leaves nice sticky lacing.

S- Pale malts, a buttery type scent that I tend to associate with a good pale ale. Some fresh floral hops. Smells very good and is very enticing.

T- This is an excellent pale ale. One of the better ones I've had. Ever. Taste is of buttery maltiness, ESB malt is present in the background creating a very good/well balanced malt profile, some pine, floral hops, slight alcohol taste that is not surprising given that its a 7.5 % abv Pale Ale!

M- Nice viscosity and nice carbonation level. Well done.

O- Excellent Pale Ale! I enjoyed this quite a bit and it's hands down my favorite beer from Mammoth Brewing. They should seriously think about making this one a year around offering. Bomber was reasonably prices at around $7. But get this, they wanted $25 to get my 64 oz growler filled of it!

What a great brew from Mammoth. Crisp and sweet full mouthfeel, lots of hops and malt.

Hops are there- grapefruit zest, juicy blood orange, then sweet red berry notes come in- pungent pomegranate, strawberries or raspberries?, maybe a touch of lime. Quite a delicious hop bouquet. Buttery, sweet bready malt undergirds the mouthfeel.

Big bodied beer with lots of great flavor that drinks real easy for any season. I'm a big fan.

Sure wish this had a bottle date. No idea how old this is.

A: Pours a lighter amber/orange with a good sized fluffy tan head. Fades very slowly, leaving excellent scattered lacework behind. Even after a substantial amount of time, a big island of foam persists, refusing to die.

S: Some caramel and nuttiness. Almost ESB-like. Mild citrus maybe? A little brown sugar to boot?

T: Mild citrus but fades fast. Lots of caramel and brown sugar and again, a little bit of nuttiness. Toasted bread to boot. Very ESB-like for sure with a touch of hops. Toast in the finish and lingering into the earthy and bitter aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied, slightly drying on the back end. Kinda sticky in general.

O: Very malty brew, barely any notice of hops. Definitely smells and tastes like an ESB. I wouldn't have pegged it for an APA, myself. Hard to say because this might be an old bottle and the hops might be long gone. I will give this beer the benefit of the doubt on the scoring as a result.

22oz bottle from the source.

Note: This is a Stein beer as the brewers used heated Basalt rocks to boil the brew.

Pours clear copper with a half inch of beige that settled to a partial skim coat with plenty of jagged lacing.

Aromatics lead off with piney hops with grapefruit and malt to balance. More citrus follows through and earthy pine bark.

Medium bodied with a crisp, snappy mouthfeel.

Pine sap, grapefruit pith, and mildly stinging citrus fruit start the palate. Hints of earthy juniper and cedar run underneath. A solid bitterness keeps the beer dry and some light caramel follows through.

Finishes with plenty of IPA heft. Resinous hops, bitterness, and a mild warmth.

The beer is described on the bottle as a double pale ale, which to me is the same as an IPA, which fits the bill nicely here. The hops are a bit faded at this point, and I can't really pick out any of the Stein beer character.
Tasty though and a great way to salute a national moument.

Reviewed from notes, been sitting on these too long. Thanks for sharing this one Mo. I'm ready to revisit the next batch up there and sling my new 7wt.

Short and sweet version.
It pours a fairly dark amber, with a huge frothy head that seems to be a signiture of Mammoth's, could also be a factor of the elevation we are drinking? Either way insane head with good lacing on the glass.
Very earthy hop aroma's, with pine and floral notes and a noticable malt character with a slight burnt sugar smell.
The taste brings out what we already know from the aroma with some burnt caramel.
Medium bodied with good carbonation.
I don't even know what this is, its extremely unique and very enjoyable.
