3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
10 ounce sample on tap at the brewery. The aroma on this is a bit depressing. Light metallic hop character, but there is little else. Transparent copper body with a medium, strong white head and good lacing. Starts with malty biscuit character. Finishes very mildly bitter, with metallic flavors. Session IPA? I don’t think so. Tastes more like a regular bitter to me. Perhaps this is a bit old?

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled on 11/4/2013. Tasted on tap at the Sierra Nevada Brewpub. This IPA pours a medium amber color from the tap. Medium to large sized white foamy head with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, malty and hoppy. A medium to lighter bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, bready and cereal. The hops are citrusy and floral. Crisp and clean, and VERY fresh tasting. Mild to medium bitterness, but the bitterness king of lingers on for a while. This is a very nice session IPA. Lots of flavor, without a lot of bitterness, yet because the bitterness kind of hangs around it makes for a interesting beer. Very smooth finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
