COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA sacrifices nothing for its drinkability, flexing big time flavor and complexity. The light color disguises the depth of the malt backbone, a pillar that balances the potent whole-cones of the piney-citrus Cascade and tropical fruit-like Citra hops.

Nice floral hop flavor. Hoppiness dissipates quickly. Not a bad IPA. Another decent IPA from Sierra Nevada.

Beautiful pale orange colour with a sticky big white head. Aroma and flavour is fruity and rich but a bit stale at the end. Good IPA for a while but wish that could taste fresh version of this..

ross (2088) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle. Orange color with a white head. Smell is pretty heavy on the mango and pineapple aspect with some citrus and grass notes as well. Taste smooth and refreshing. Easy to drink, wish this was a regular offering. Reminded me of a somewhat toned down Torpedo.

Hanoi (394) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle. Nose is yeasty, and slightly musty, slight citrus. Suspect this maybe a bit old. Taste is muted citrus, honey leading to pine. Moutfeel is good. Decent IPA which I suspect was past it’s best when it past me.

gegwilson (1156) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle from the Robert Gillow Bottle Shop in Lancaster. Pours amber with a cream head. Plenty of pine hop notes going on providing a long bitter finish. Some initial fruity sweetness. A nice easy drinking IPA, but lacks a little something in the way of a malt base to make it really good.
