3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from The Drinkery, Londonderry NH. Aroma is malty bread. Appearance is hazy light golden brown with finger-width foamy head with poor retention and foamy lacing. Taste is mildly sweet initially with more bold bitter back half and finish. Palate is medium body with thick texture and lively carbonation at the tip and sides of the tongue. This was not drunk fresh (in first 100 days after being born) so may not be the best reflection of how the beer is meant to be had.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
I did not enjoy this beer, for an IPA there is zero hops on the nose, it pours like a miller lite w extra head. Absolutely no bitterness or hop flavor whatsoever, Almost had a seltzer water aftertaste, very disappointed, main stream breweries cant quite get the IPA style down properly, I would keep Sierra Nevada WAY out of the micro brewery category.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle (660ml)] Pours a lightly hazy golden-orange with a large lasting foamy white head and some lacing on the glass. Spicy hop aroma, a bit grainy, floral and earthy too and backed by caramel malt. Flavour follows but is more fruity then spicy. Medium bodied. Not one of my favourite hops but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Bottle. Slightly hazy orange pour with a smaller white head. Woodsy. Hint of floral. I do get some green pepper in here, and it’s going great with this salsa I’m crushing. Nice brew.
