3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small draught sample@SBWF2011. Slightly hazy goldeny orange colour, minor head. Aroma is fruity and floral hops with some grassy and bready malts. Flavour is sweet bready and caramelly maltyness along with some fruity, floral and nectary notes. Quite mild DIPA, but hides the alcohol quite well, even though it’s no "Hop bomb".

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: The pour is a clear golden color with a big white head.
S: Not exactly my idea IPA aroma. Grassy and floral hops with body odor and mild earthy hops. Some citrus and pine notes, and not really much malt or sweetness, but not terribly good.
T: The flavor is more of the same. Earthy, floral, and grassy hops with a hint of bready malt flavor. Fairly bitter with a lot of pine flavors, but not much else going on.
M: Medium in body and just about medium carbonation.
O: Really disappointing from Sierra Nevada. This was by far the worst beer in the pack.

Bottle. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation.
