COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The 2007 Anniversary Ale features prominent usage of Cascade hops– the signature hop used in Sierra Nevada’s most popular product, Pale Ale. It is an American Style IPA with a big, fragrant pine and citrus hop aroma balanced by the sweetness of two-row pale and caramel malt. It finishes with an additional Cascade dry-hopping creating a big hop aroma Sierra Nevada fans will look forward to. 2007-2009, discontinued 2010.

MullMan (1099) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 30, 2009
12oz bottle. first pour is mostly head; very frothy and thick light tan merangue. rocky and dimply. color is a cloudy light amber/copper color, golden at edges and lots of tiny yeast particles. heavy lacing hangs like injection-foam. toasted caramel malt aroma, mild grapefruit peel, and light fresh pine needles. flavor is like the aroma, light caramel/crystal malt, some mildly dry hop bitterness, and a bit of grapefruit section - pulp with pith. low but sprighlty carbonation, snappy hop finish. light spice aftertaste. top notch session beer!

"it must be the dry hopping, cause this one is better than the ipa and pale too. i like their dry hopped beers though, one of their better ones, almost along with topedo ale, celebration ale, and of course, bigfoot."

Bottle 355 ml from 2009, at Delirium Hoppy Loft. Pours amber with off white head. Slightly hoppy and caramel aroma. Caramel hoppy flavor. There is a chance bottle wasn’t in the best condition.

laiti (5755) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2013
35,5 cl bottle @ Kahdet Kasvot. Rated on 16.10.2009
Aroma has hops, some caramel, gooseberry bush and biscuits. Flavour has gooseberry bush, nettles, some biscuits, caramel and hints of resin. Good, but there’s something about the hop profile I do not like. The same thing occurred with Southern Hemisphere Harvest.
