3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from the variety pack. Aroma is kind of skunky, but maybe itís just the danky hops. Itís also really floral. Taste is bittersweet with a SweeTarts like flavor. Taste is quality, but pretty boring for Sierra Nevada. Out of all the beers that are made at Beer Camp they decide to include a boring, yet well-executed IPA? I donít understand.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours cloudy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is kind of skunky , which I think is actually the hops, piney and somewhat fruity. The taste is fruity and moderately bitter, citrus, piney. Body and carbonation are medium. I was unimpressed with this, Sierra Nevada can do much better than this, we know this, why would they put a boring IPA (which I love the style) in their experimental Beer Camp variety pack, this is just a huge disappointment.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a clear orange with a large white head. Aroma is plenty of fresh pine hops. Flavor is much the same. Fresh pine/ citrus hops with a larger than usual caramel malt in the backround. Decent serviceable no-frills IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose with pine, resin, citrus, very hoppy, seems pretty hard-boiled. Pours clear orange with red and yellow highlights and plenty of carbonation, creamy large eggshell head. Bone dry and stripping, really, light oil with stronger resin, very strong bitterness but not punishing. Light spice and prickling, a little green, plenty of citrus, earthy caramel, light paper/wood strips. Medium-full body. Nothing wrong here, my taste just not feeling it tonight.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mariís. Pours clear orange with a medium sized white head, decent retention, solid lacing. The aroma is piney with a bit of pear and passion fruit iíd say. The citrus is not pungent enough to excite me. The taste has a nice pine cone kick, followed by dry bitterness, and a light citrus burst. Palate is classic WC IPA. Decent offering but nothing extra.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz stubby Sierra Nevada bottle via 12 pack from Spirits Rt 166. Poured a very nice deep rusty gold body with a full large thick fluffy white head. Aroma of dry citrus rinds, rotting citrus meat, grains, old bread dough, grass, alcohol and some bad tropical fruits. The body is very full and foamy with assertive carbonation and noticeable alcohol despite the not so high ABV. Flavor of dry hop cones, dry citrus rinds, dry orange citrus pulp, yellow grapefruit, bread crusts. Meh this one is not doing it for me.

Bottle. Clear medium orange pour ,frothy lasting head and lightly sweet citrus hops. Flavor is that of your slightly above average IPA, decenltly malty, bitters and oranges and finished a little herbally.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz. Pours a lighter golden with a lacy white head. Aromas of light pine, some citrus fruit, and a touch of caramel. There is also a floral note that is present. The body is somewhat light and easily drinkable. Decent but not what I expected out of this one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a bit lighter on the color scale and has a very nice lacy white head. Nice soft pine and citrus hop aroma. Mouthfeel is nice and full and the hops, with the addition of the Citra, adds a nice complexity over their regular IPA, although itís a bit heartier. Malt provides good body but doesnít get in the way.
