sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Tasted 4/30/08. Second part of the sampler. Filtered with a dark amber hue. Taupe head. Peppery grassy hop aromas. Full bodied tart and crisp. So zesty. Lime and lemon citrus flavors. Tingling effervescence with moderate alcohol. Rolling smooth but bitter English dry hops. Toffee and slightly cooked sugar malts. Faint burn. More of a sticky sensation. Rolling and cloying. Not too bad.

hopscotch (9380) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Draft… DLD’08… Clear, textbook amber with a small, creamy, off-white head. Big time grapefruit (golden and ruby red) along with juniper notes overpower all the malt essences. Medium to full-bodied with ticklish carbonation. Moderately sweet; medium to heavily bitter; mildly acidic with some alcohol warmth. Bitter, drying finish with a pinch of salt.

Thick amber color with good head and lacing. Nice hop floral smell. Good hop presence in the thick flavor. Well made and well balanced. Palate is nice and thick and and matches the flavor well.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2008
Draft @ DLD 08: Light copper in color with a small white head. Citrus based nose with some floral hop notes added...medium-full bodied mouth feel. Very nice flavor on this, not too dry or sweet but just perfectly rounded out citrus hop bomb with some malty accents to give it a balanced finish.

lb4lb (2552) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2008
Pours dark caramel to orange colored and is semi clear. Smell is fruity, hoppy and fresh with lemony, tropical notes. Taste is hop forward and well balanced at the same time. Just mildly bittered and the flavor is really great despite being a tad light bodied. Definitely recommended!

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 25, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Aroma is plenty fruitty with papaya and tangerine. Flavor is a nice mix of hoppy and fruitty with a decent hop bite. On the bitter fruit side than the malt side.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2008
Pour is nice warm amber with a thick tan head...super piney and resiny nose...wow...taste is not as over the top as the aroma would lead you to believe...nice and sweet throughout...

Aurelius (4317) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2008
Cat pee and pine aroma. Big, bold, boozy with tangerine notes. LOng chemical and pine finish, medium body. Technically good, not my style.

Resiny. Resin when I sniff it, resin coated the eyeball when gazing at the cloudy 12 oz. tulip; before it even hit the tongue I could tell there was going to be some sort of resiny stickiness that might try to seal my lips after one sip. This deceptive stickiness obviously confused the poor soul who rated this last,as it is not an underattenuated residually sweet DOUBLE IPA; quite dry in fact. One question KeithD, have you ever actually done that with a Sierra? Nice comparison, really, if you haven’t I think you should try that, and then try this beer again.
