This is truly a great IPA. I put this up against 60 min. IPA and Hop Devil and this one was the best IMO. They should make it year long. I’m rating this from memory, so I won’t go into details. Just try it, you love it. Awesome stuff.

Inget är som det borde. Jorden ruckas en aning ur sin bana för här här vi ett Sierra-öl som inte får hjärna och hjärta att slå frivolter av lycka. Men så har Sierra en helt egen måttstock som är lite mer kräset kalibrerad än alla andras. Det här kan med andra ord vara en braksucce, förklädd i en annan etikett.

On tap @GarricksHeadPub. Lots going on here, but it rounds out into a smooth, very palatable brew. Lighter and easier than I expected -- good balance of multiple hop strains that don’t overwhelm a solid malt base.

Smithld1 (32) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle 2014 edition. Not as pungent as a torpedo but pretty fruity. Some distinctive Sierra Nevada tones filter through. A good drop.

NordicV (1386) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2015
Ett år gammal flaska. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad öl med inslag av rött. Ljusbeige skum. I doften finns storkaramelldoft, malt men även mycket humle, främst i form av tallbarr men även en del fruktighet som drar åt jordgubbe. Detta går igen i smaken. Bra humlebett trots att flaskan var ett år gammal.
