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.

Palate - hops.
Seriously though this beer is fantastic. Great flavor and aroma. Nice complexity and balance. This beer is one of the greats and has definitely earned it’s 100 rating. Not a beginner beer by any means.

Didn’t expect to love this beer but it exceeded my expectations. Smoother than I expected and really really nice grapefruit/pine hops. Pleasantly surprised.

Delightful beverage that brings a nice golden orange color and an almost sweet hoppy taste.

I usually enjoy most Sierra Nevada beers, but Hotimum took a few drinks. All said and done it was really good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2013. Heavy aroma of caramel and tropical fruits, pours a golden / amber coulour with a smallish head that has good retention, flavours of tropical fruit and citrus with the lingering bitter aftertaste, not over-carbonated but it dances on the tongue, wow an excellent ale

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Pours golden brown with thin white head that lingers. It looks like how a perfect beer should. Mild carbonation with a hop aroma. It's like a slightly less sweet and slightly less boozy dfh120. Hop punch in the mouth with no complexity. On the west coast I'm sure this us a good dipa. In VT, this sits on the store shelves.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a bottle in Catonsville, MD. Very floral aroma, traditional IPA amber orange color. If you are an IPA fan, DRINK THIS anytime you can find it. Would love to find it on tap. This is a splendid resinous, bitter hoppy taste with a very smooth mouth feel. Start to finish and even the lingering aftertaste is gratifying. Best Sierra Nevada product I’ve tasted.

Copper color with a medium head. Mango and tropical fruit aroma. Strong citrus flavor. Lots of tangerine and orange peel. Marmalade kind of sweetness, but solid bitterness. Full bodied. Venturing into Am Barley Wine territory, but delicious.
