4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Label pays homage to Sierra Nevada, Rouge, and Anchor Steam.
a: dark amber hue, 1/4" off white head, reduces to a light lacing cap. Lacing also rings the glass.
s: the first thing through my mind was, "This beer has Chinook Hops." Big pine, slight grapefruit.
t: nice caramalized malt backbone, hint of chocolate malt. Piney and grapefruit from hops slightly overpower on the back end.
m&d: medium body, light carbonation, slightly sticky mouth. ABV is hidden well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber body, medium head. Lots going on, with caramel malt that shows tropical citrus notes as well. Hints of warm rye bread add nuance. This finishes with a blast of dry, bitter hops that overwhelm the rest, although the heat is covered well.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice hoppy malty aroma, very balanced. Light crimson color with a dense white head. Taste is hoppy on the verge of bitter yet sweet enough to achieve good balance like it has in the aroma. Great slick palate with a slight tingle of carbonation on the tongue. This was great, I just wish it were easier to find.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of hoppy malt. Clear medium amber color, smooth off-white head, stripes of lace. Taste is typical light IPA - caramel malt followed by hops on a medium fizzed swallow. Pure and unadulterated. And pretty good.
