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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Man, I was hoping for big things from this beer given the iconic status of both breweries involved but I was left wanting. Very faint hop aroma. Average golden color and the palate was light and fizzy. Flavor was hoppy but mild with malts just showing up to the party. Good but not up to the standards of either brewery.
