Share This Review

Death Valley Pale Ale is an American Pale Ale brewed by Indian Wells Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, was served into a cup from a bottle.

Appearance

The Pale pours a clear burnt-orange and is topped by a foamy cream-colored head that reduces very slowly. Its reduction leaves behind an abundant amount of sticky lacing.

Aroma

Its aroma is faint with a scent of caramel.

Flavor

The palate begins with a taste of Cascade hops that are a touch fruity. Their bitterness is balanced by sweet and bready barley and caramel; finished with a bite of herbal hops and lemon peel.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is thin with a less-than-medium body and low carbonation.

Overall

Appearance aside, the Death Valley Pale Ale is a mess. Its body is too thin with a palate that’s more akin to an Amber than a Pale. The herbal and sweet flavors make for a disagreeable combination.
