Mammoth Brewing Company Epic IPA
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Mammoth Brewing Company Epic IPA. I visited Yosemite the weekend after the 4th of July and picked up a few Mammoth Brewing Company beers that I had yet to try (or review). Most of their beers don’t make it to the Bay Area so I was happy to see such an excellent selection of their beers. This is the second of the string of reviews.
From the Mammoth Brewing Company website: “Hopped at two pounds per barrel, our IPA unites a strong malt flavor with a wonderfully intense aromatic finish. A favorite among the staff at the brewery so make sure you can get your hands on it before they do!”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark copper color with a nice tan head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Pine, grapefruit, grassy and earthy.
Taste: Pine, citrus and grassy hops balanced well with caramel malts.
Overall: I bought a six pack of Mammoth Brewing Company Epic IPA and only one made it home for pictures/review. At 6.5% ABV I enjoyed knocking a couple back per night while camping and I’d most certainly pick some up next time I see it. Now it is time to plan another visit to Yosemite and this time over to Mammoth Brewing Company.
