UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 Wow! Super bitter, super dry, probably the best imperial IPA i’ve ever had. So much better than those sweet syrupy ipa’s its ridiculus. And for $9.99 a four pack, you cant go wrong! SO glad I bought two quads of this freakin amazing brew!

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Amber orange brew with off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, floral and citrus hops. Taste is light caramel malts with a solid hops assertion. Actually not as hopped up as many DIPA’s but still plenty here. Very fine.

Really really good. Expected it be be fairly average in that the majority of Sierra’s are a mix between craft and mass pro. Surprised in the perfect aroma and smooth finish despite over 10%. A worth opponent to hopslam

Pours orange with white head and nice lacing. Aroma of strong pine hops with a touch of citrus. The taste is the same, but add potential floral hops. Strong yet tasty bitterness. This beer will wake up your taste buds.

One incredible delight. Out of this world flavor. Sipped very very slowly but very very rewarding. A must for any IPA lover.

I’m gerting a wintergreen flavor up front with a grapefruit finish. Must be the way the malts interact with the hops in kind of a cloying way but the hops do shine. Citrusy aroma and a very nice finish with a chewy mouthfeel with textured bubbles and love that bitterhop bite at the end. I would say this is pretty solid. I wish they would reveal all the hops because I would clone this with UK two row to accentuate it more. The wheat malt is a nice addition as it gives the beer a nice bite. A good summer ipa with a kick to it.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2016 Thanks to iNBe. Malty sweetness balances the hops with out being too sweet and cloying. At various times the hops hit you as citrus, pine, grassy and herbal. With citrus being the least evident. The over all flavor was a bit sharp. Serving: Bottle

Pours a clear amber with a small off white head. Very piney in the nose, some sweet malts. Perhaps a slight whiff of alcohol. Taste follows suit - this is not a citrus bomb, this is a pine bomb. Chewy pine tree branches, pine cones, bitter bark. A touch rough around the edges. Very dry finish... Very low residual sugar, which is a huge plus for me. I kind of prefer the intrusiveness of citrus type hops to the snowy pine hops, but this beer is just fine. Very smacking on the lips. Excellent.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 Tons of hops in the aroma. Looks great. This is very much like just biting into a hop right off the vine. Extremely hoppy and quite a bit of sweetness as well, yet maybe just not quite as great as I’d hoped. Still, the 10% is more in the aftertaste than in the body. And a great price for such a beer as this. However, it will hit you...beware.
