3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Torpedo Room. It pours a golden color with an off white head. The aroma is bready with light notes of melon. A bit subdued. The flavor has some lightly toasted malt, dry floral and spicy hop notes and stone fruit. Mostly just bready with medium floral/spicy bitterness in the finish. A bit bland, but clean and drinkable.

Wait, drinking this benefitted ALS research? So, I could’ve just drank a bunch of this instead of pouring a bucked of Ice Water over my head? Because this is so much better. Clean and crisp, with nice citrus throughout. Kind of peppery, too. Nice stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Mills River. Another solid pale from SN, but nothing outstanding. Pretty much as described by server- nice and crisp and tons of grapefruit. Ends up a bit one note. A bit heavy on the caramel upfront. Pours slightly lighter than the pale with a decent head. Dry and crisp- definitely refreshing and the low ABV goes down easily. Slightly anemic.

Not going to tank it. But not that great for an ipa. Can really taste the yeast. Not a big fan. Not many hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - pours nice effervescent gold. With low white ring of head. Strong lacing. S - interesting fresh citrus with musty white grapes, light musty hop flowers and resin. M - light dry body. A little thickness. T - lager notes, lemon juice, musty orange juice and blossoms. Doughy and caramel malts. O - good but lightly muddled. Sweetish pale, so un Sierra. Like a mellow sweet Sierra pale. 3.3

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is sort of citrus/mango. Med body. Flavor is bready with mixed fruity hop. Maybe light roast malt is a better descriptor than bready. Finishes a bit papery, but dry and bitter. Good session ale.
