Quite simply, nectar from the gods ! Rich, powerful flavours and aromas. Started with this at the GBBF, mistake. Everything got fuzzy after and the other beers couldn’t compete. Best Ipa I’ve had.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. DIPA. Sierra Nevada. Let’s get ready to muuuumble! (After too much drinking.)
A: Orange with copper tones. Fluffy off-white head.
N: Black peppercorn, pineapple and orange syrup. Biscuit and rye bread. Ample spruce and earth from the hops. Fall leaves and grasses.
T: Quite bitter, with a crackery base to prop up the hops. Wouldn’t put this one in front of a hop novice, for sure.
M: Big booze presence throughout. Heavy, resinous body. Very dry at the end.
O: The intense amount of booze is about the only reason to dislike this. (And I am knocking off points because the alcohol laces itself through this beer like a snake in an ivy ladder.) However, for serious hopheads, this will more than appease their thirst.
