A great big hop aroma and taste. The finish is a bold pine and alcohol blend. It has a very english taste. I like it. I was surprised to see the Alcohol was only 6.9 %.

ReAle (120) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 23, 2011
Bevuta in bottiglia. IPA senza infamia e senza lode, dorata penetrante con buona schiuma, correttamente luppolata ma senza niente di eccezionale. Corpo medio. Discreta.

Not much of a scent, light golden color. Can lightly taste the hops, really drinkable.

Countbeer (4302) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2010
Bottle: White foamy head. Pours a clear very dark orange to light brown beer. Smell a lot of hops and some bitterness and flower, as well as hints of fruit (citrus, grapefruit, pineapple). Taste a well balanced hoppy/bitter ipa: again lot of hops, fruit, hint of spices and malts. Nicely bitter and bit dry in the end, well balanced.

12 oz. bottle Poured with a half-inch head with very nice lacing all the way down the mug. Appearance was a very nice caramel color. Looked very good Smell has faint hint of citrus to me, very good overall. Taste is what you would expect from a top-notch IPA, very bitter. Im not the biggest fan of IPAs but this one is good if you like it bitter. Mouthfeel is just above average, not very heavy. Drinkability depends on your tastes, but if you like IPAs, I believe you should be able to down a few of these with no problem. Overall a very srong outing once again from Sierra Nevada.

kwik-lime (1241) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2010
Pretty decent, good hop taste but not overpoweringly dominant as can be the case with an IPA, this is well balanced. Citrusey notes as well add it an interesting flavour, easy-drinking, good beer.
