4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Deep golden brew that has the aroma and taste of pine hops. Some citrus flavors came out but mostly a pine resin flavor. Really good brew but then Sierra Nevada is one of my favorite breweries that normally doesn’t let me down. Excellent brew at an affordable price. Will be picking up more of this one.

355ml bottle from Drinkstore. Light amber, lovely big frothy white head, nice lacing. Pine, resin, red fruits, orange zest, pithy notes and sweet caramel nose. Big flavour, grapefruit hop blast, backed by plenty of sweet, sweet malt. Decent body, pretty highly carbonated. Long finish, really bitter. Great stuff.

355mL green label 2013 mixed pack offering. Clear deep amber with massive, rocky off white foam. Huge lace. Nose is bright herbal hops, flowers, mandarin orange, heavy resin. Taste is similar, about as rich of an ipa palate as I can handle with pine needle and resinous cone density, more mandarin orange and some bright fruitiness. Brilliant as always from Sierra Nevada, the unhyped original IPA kings.
