Bottle. Poured a hazy light brown with an average sized white creamy head that lasted throughout and had excellent lacing. The aroma was heavy with the scent of a pine hop, grain malts and a light sweet yeast with notes of cirtus, banana and mango. It tasted mildly sweet and slightly bitter at first and then became slighty more bitter and a little acidic with notes of fruit and a nice hoppy finish that lasted a nice long time. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and dry in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall a friggin great marriage of Sierra Nevada’s ale collection.

With Z, pours a dark deep rusty brown color with a nice beige head. Nose is sweet caramel and syrupy. Taste is sweet and hoppy , smooth and nicely balanced. Not over the top sweet like most strong ales. Finishes on the same tasting notes with a nice bittersweet finish . Quaff Score 7 / 10

Bottle from the NC brewery - this one is pretty to look at, but I’m afraid there might be something wrong with the bottle, or it hasn’t aged well. I’m not getting any of the cherry or fruity notes that others describe, just boring piney bitterness. Pass.

Bottle from Sierra Nevada NC. Pours brown with a thick khaki head. leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. not a lot on the nose. a bit of wood on the tongue and a lot of bitterness on the finish. I would have loved to have tried this one fresh. I don’t think it’s aged well.

Testad på Linköping beer expo. Sötsliskig, oljig doft. Smaken är söt, besk och lite blaskig på samma gång. Ganska spretig, obalanserad smak. Hade hellre sett att denna endast innehöll fatlagrad bigfoot..
