3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Classic Sierra Nevada IPA, smooth, great hop profile especially on the back end, well balanced, goes down easy, definitely a top notch IPA. That slight spice really adds to the flavor, mixes well with the hops.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a mostly clear, dark gold with 2 fingers white head. Aroma is fruity, loads of citrus. Maybe a little blueberry. Taste is medium bitter, follows aroma. Definite blueberry taste. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a super long finish. Very good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden yellow color with a clean malt aroma. Taste is dry, with a good malt hop flavor and a hint of pepper in the aftertaste. A good bitter finish, not overbearing with a freshness even for a 2014 beer.

On tap at Parlor City in CR. Big, dense rocky head. I got no real aroma. Flavors are fruity (though not really the blueberry they say), a dry finish. Good, not great.

"Kind of excited about this one, but I’m not sure if I just don’t like this hop or if its something else. I got some floral notes and there’s more than ample bitterness, but instead of the berries and pepper promised I got skunk, in the nose and a little in the flavor. Enough to distract. Not a bad beer, but not all that great, either."

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The newly developed 291 varietal hops used in this beer has intense floral and berry bouquet. Light to medium bodied mouth feel. It's strange but it's like I only feel the hops on my tongue and nowhere else in my mouth with their delicate bite.
