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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from someplace in Brunswick, ME. Hazy gold with fluffy lasting white head and lace. Floral peppery aroma with some grapefruit and pine. Very mild fruity spicy sweetness hints of honey and peach with assertive woody piney grapefruit rind bitterness and extremely dry finish. Assertive carbo accentuates bitterness. Medium light. Very good.

Tap at Brew Kettle, not as enjoyable as everyone else seems to think, the pepper from the description i think is what kills this for me, I would call this an APA at least from how it tastes now.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grumbler purchase, Breeze In, Juneau, AK.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice clear amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipates within about a minute and leaves some nice sticky foamy lacing with one ring of foaminess at the top of the glass.
The smell has a super nice rich piney to citrus conglomeration invading my nose and also allowing a nice sweet blueberry gently underneath.
The taste was mainly sweet through the citrus and the piney hops but still allowed a gentle light spicy to bitter flavoring to come through. The aftertaste was mainly sweet and sticky. The finish is quick and dry.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was right on style with a nice harshness coating my mouth and tongue.
Overall, wow, what a nice AIPA done by SN. With that slight blueberry in the smell, this made one fine beer to have on a Summerís day.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear light amber body. Off-white, frothy head. Light but pleasant aroma: Toasted grain, orange, biscuits, pepper, light pine. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Some spiciness shows up in the finish, but non-assertive hops overall. Still, nice balance and easy drinking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled onPours a clear golden with a strong thick head with great retention. Aromas light grain, sight blueberry and hay. Flavors are of light blueberry, slight pepper, light grass and some hay. Medium dry, medium bitter and lightly sweet. This is the first time Iíve tasted blueberry like impressions in an ipa. This hop is generally on the herbal/floral side. Wish there was a hop that had a stronger blueberry impression so I could mix it with the nelson sauvin hop (grape impressions).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Fairly bright citrusy and somewhat sweet IPA.   Clean, a little touch of earth on the finish.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish, nice balance but not too heavy.   A touch of peel and pith linger.   Not one of their best IPAs, but a solid IPA as most of their beers are.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a rocky, bubbly white head, wide bands of lace. A good looking drink. Aroma has citrus and malt, very appealing. Taste is caramel malt that blossoms in the palate, joined by full floral hops in a 50-50 shared flavor the rest of the way. A really solid IPA that doesnít get overwhelmed by the hops. However, donít misunderstand - this is a hoppy brew. High recommendations.
