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.

Pours a hazy amber with a nice two fingers of white head that dissipates rather quickly but leaves some nice lacing. The smell is mostly of floral hops with a small hint of citrus and malt. The taste is wonderfully hoppy with the dominant hops being floral and pine. There are hints of citrus as well with an extremely faint hint of malt. The first few sips seemed overly bitter, but as the brew warmed I was able to pick out all of the flavors. The carbonation is balanced very well and compliments the bite of the hop bitterness. The finish is bone dry. A very well crafted IPA. There are many dimensions to this beer than you might initially think as you get into the glass a bit. SN usually makes a solid straight-forward brew, but there is definitely a bit more to this one. Reviewed on: 10-29-2008

"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."

Iznogud (1207) - CROATIA - JUL 7, 2014
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.
