4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA reviewed 1-15-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance - A copper-orange color with an enormous head upon pouring. This very slowly fades leaving some wonderful lacing.
Smell - A piney aroma is most potent upon pouring with a lighter more fruity grapefruit hop smell mixed with a bit of floral. As it sits the potency of the pine seems to diminish a bit while the floral and fruity hop aroma come through more.
Taste - A bit of sweet from the citrus hop and some malt begins the taste profile. The pine comes in heavy in the middle and fades a bit toward the end, which is when the floral and the citrus return to finish off the taste profile.
Mouthfeel - A good mouthfeel with a nice sturdy body. Smooth and very drinkable. The only thing keeping the mouthfeel down a bit is the carbonation. It seems a bit under-carbonated almost as though all the carbonation runs from the brew upon pouring to form the beautiful head that is formed.
Overall - This is a very spicy and refreshing beer. One to enjoy.

Bottle. From notes. Pours a deep orange to almost brown. Aroma of grapefruit and a slight sweet coffee. Taste is middle of the road hoppy, slightly bitter and very much Sierra Nevada.

This is an outstanding India Pale Ale. Hoppy as hell. Very hoppy. I just adore this kind of beers. Diversity of spicey-fruity-bitter impressions just made my head turning.

Pours a nice amber color with off white head. Flowers, grass, citrus, and pine on the nose; all follow onto the palate. Finishes with a bit of hop resin left on the palate.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 710 ml bottle. Pours a clear honey-amber with a pillowy white head and moderate carbonation. Aromas of pine, lemon, dark bread, pepper, spice and flowers. Taste is richly malty up front before a firm pine resin bitterness comes through. Citrus and spice at the back end. Lingering spicy aftertaste. Very smooth mouth feel. Great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich amber body with huge fluffy head, light hoppy aroma. Hops dominate the taste, although some nice malt backbone is evident also. Dry mouthfeel and finish. Tasty.
