Pours a clear golden orange on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave great lace. Aroma of resinous citrus and pine hops, the three c’s, and some nice caramel malt. Taste follows, nice balance, moderate bitterness. Very clean, very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: pours with a very large beige head, beer is a very clear dark bronze color, almost brown
Aroma: egg, bread, pine, grass, dank, floral
Taste: very strong bitterness, dark toasted malt,
Palate: strong bitter aftertaste, average carbonation, medium mouthfeel
Overall: intensely bitter throughout, has some coffee malt in the background, some of these Sierra Nevada beers are the most bitter I've had and I like them, could use a bit more complexity

Draught at the tasting room in San Diego. Clear golden/copper beer with a nice offwhite head. Fruity hop aroma, peach, grapes, citrus, hay, biscuits, floral notes. Hoppy grape flavor, citrus, hay, floral, some peach and caramel. Not top class.

Tap @ Toronado. Not much aroma. Taste initially malty and then takes a hard right into full hoppiness! Great surprising beer with hops of pine.

Bomber pours amber with a huge, fluffy white head and excellent lacing. Incredibly balanced for an IPA. Very earthy in aroma and flavor. Just clean, bitter, and smooth.

Pretty good wet hopped ipa. Aroma doesn’t blast you in the face but it’s pleasant. It’s on the much more earthy aroma side of things than big citrus fruit in my opinion. Taste is earthy, very bitter and a bit of grapefruit and pine. Oily and again, nice bitterness. Overall this is a good wet hopped beer. I rarely get big in your face aromas and tastes from these, but I like to try them. I think the earthiness takes away from the big hop aroma and taste.

Crystal clear deep amber, amble foamy yellowish tan head. Big grapefruit citrus, light pine, honey. Pleasantly bitter, quite a lot of malty sweetness. Some light spice. Chewy, slightly oily, medium body. Longer finish. Good.

Bright orange pour from 22oz bottle at Pazzo. White head. Citrus, bready and malty aroma. Taste is interesting. Grows on you after a few sips. Super bitter, citrus and pine, earthy and malty. Decent IPA. This is a 2014 rated in 2015
