3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle from old notes. Pours a hazy, golden Amber color and topped by a small layer of off white foam. The aroma shows notes of citrus fruit, pine resin, and earth over a toasted caramel malt base. The flavor follows with the citrus fruit and pine up front along with toasted caramel and toffee malts with ample hop bitterness to balance things out on the back end. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads to a clean, bitter sweet finish. Nice, solid pale ale, but straight forward and nothing too exciting. One of the better beers from the collaboration box.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle served in an IPA glass. Pours medium orangish copper with thick cream-colored head. Aroma is chewy oaky caramel malt, with a hint of grassy hops on the back. Taste is similar - thick roasty caramel malt with big dank earthy hops. Lingers bitter on the finish. Pretty much an IPA. Could stand a cleaner finish. Still, good flavor

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a huge fluffy orange-tan head that lingered and left excellent lacing. The aroma was malty and sweetish with notes of bread, honey and a bit of earthy hops. The flavor was malty and breach with notes of caramel, toffee, honey, strong crystal malt and a bit of earthy hops. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber light hazy. Citrus, malty caramels, pines on nose. Very classic sierra nevada- profile. Med bodied, caramels, citrus piney finish. Clean nice. Pretty much what the label says. A chico beer definitely. With a classic hop profile. Nice, but not that interesting. Very drinkable though, considering the highish abv.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in NYC - thanks to Sander. Unexpectedly, this one seems a bit infected. It gushes upon opening and then pours a clear, deep gold with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma holds notes of brett, grass, melon and orange. Light-,edit sweet flavor with mild grassy bitterness, some rindy citrus fruits, a bit of farmy poo, wood, melon. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Nicely balanced to finish with further brett character, some bready sweetness, piney spice, grass, more rindy citrus, faint alcohol warmth. Very tasty.
