Review: Mammoth Brewing Company EPIC IPA

EPIC ipa 187x300 Review: Mammoth Brewing Company EPIC IPAMammoth Brewing Company is one of the centerpieces of CANFEST, a beer festival with a twist: All the beers are poured not from taps or bottles but from cans. I couldn’t attend the Reno-based event (which happens tomorrow), but the organizers were kind enough to send me one of the event’s top offerings. Thoughts follow.

A canned IPA from the “highest brewery on the west coast.” Pours a darkish honey color, with a minimal head (and only modest carbonation). Hoppy nose, with some pine needles for good measure. On the palate, more of the same, with ample malt and a light citrus element that builds in the finish. Simple, amply bitter, and lightly sweet on the back end to give it some curiosity. Overall quite a good and refreshing brew.
