4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours out a reddish brown with sticky tan head. Smells like juicy grapefruit, pine and some tropical whiffs. Tastes like grapefruit, ripe melon, pine and some tropical fruit and pepper. Mouthfeel is rich and full. Overall fills a nice gap between tumbler and celebration ale. Brilliant market expansion Sierra Nevada....

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty decent IPA. On draft at Funck’s near Hershey. The Flipside poured a dark copper color with a nice off-white head. The head left some really awesome lacing around the inside of the glass. The nose was well-balanced, with floral hops and plenty of malt. The flavors and body were balanced, too, with notes of spicy and floral hops, caramel and bready malts. Delicious finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle dated 08/04/14. Pretty excited about how fresh it was. Was expecting a good amount of hop presence because of the description, but didn’t find much. The beer is all malty sweetness with some cooked vegetable aromas. Very disappointed.

N: Deep hops - pine and grapefruit, leafiness and biscuit. Touch of herbs, lemongrass and some coriander.
T: Well bittered. Touch of sweetness.
M : Medium body, light stickiness.

Been looking forward to this one, so it only compounds the disappointment. Looks beautiful when poured, but the beer itself is barely mediocre...it that. Skip the six, grab a single in a pick. Chalky and sour...very surprised and disappointed.
