4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Light amber appearance with a white head. Aroma is fresh hops and a little grassy. Flavor is strong hops but not overpowering. Fresh, very floral and a little grassy. A little sweet aftertaste but it finishes dry. Overall, excellent beer, would definitely recommend it.

Bottle, 2014 release. Earthy, citrus hop aroma. Pours golden colored with one finger of off-white head and no lacing. Nice citrus hoppy flavors to start. Finishes quite dry with good citrus as well as a hint of earthiness. Very good ipa.

The first sip is an absolute hop-bomb. The difference with this beer as opposed to other 100+ IBUs is that after a few sips and your palette gets used to the hoppiness, it's quite enjoyable. I picked up the earthy and some floral notes. For me, a good summer beer to quench the thirst.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pale orange color, minimal head. Huge aromas. Just a bit of malt sweetness at the start and then your palate gets bitch slapped by huge amounts of resinous floral and pine hops. Finish is somewhat dry with a hint of alcohol burn at the back of the throat. This one is a monster.

Bottle. Brown sugar, citrus hop, and spices in the aroma, full body, nice bitter bite. Taste is a little sweet initially with a dry, earthy bitter finish. Very nice DIPA that has a lot of hop character and still the full body of a double.

Great beer really showcases the hops. Doesn't really taste like 100 ibu beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours out copper red with a small tan head up top. Pine and alcohol on the nose, but the flavor is all sweet malt and herbal hops. Aftertaste is metallic with lingering medicinal notes and a little bit of citrus finally rearing its head. Traditional DIPA moutheel, thicky and syrupy with very apparent alcohol heat. I’m quite disappointed by this, probably the worst Sierra Nevada brew I’ve tried yet.

Orange pour with a massive head. Citrus and piney hops on the nose. That is a flavor explosion in the mouth....sweet caramel that morphs into a welcomed bitterness as it slides into the back of your throat.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours burnt orange with a huge three finger head. Aroma is malts and piney hops; a touch of alcohol. Taste is fairly malty with a moderate hop bitterness throughout. Definitely some alcohol in there as well. Good mouth feel but the carbonation seems to be lacking a bit. Overall a very enjoyable beer if you don’t mind the alcohol taste, which I don’t.
