3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
1 pint 8 oz bottle. Very red appearance for an ipa. Not much head. A bit spicy on the front, no aftertaste. Honestly not much going on here. Some citrus on nose. It’s it heresy to say this reminds me of a hoppy Budweiser? Perhaps my bottle was old.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a killer combo of dank earthiness with a burst of orange juice notes. This is way bitter and seems more alcohol tasting than 6.7%. I liked that it is basically two hop varietals making such a bold statement.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, peachy Amber beer, fine, cream head, ok lacing. Aroma is spruce and hay/cut grass, very faint onion. Flavor is malt, spruce, orange, citrus rind. Body is rich, carbonation good. This is quite bitter, even for an IPA, and I don’t get as much fruit as I expected.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle. Clear amber color with fluffy tan head. Aroma is caramel, citrus, and a pleasant touch of darkness. Taste is caramel, candied citrus, bitter grapefruit, and some floral, fresh-cut grass notes. Well-balanced sweet and bitter flavors with a tasty and smooth finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark amber. Nose is malty with some pine and a touch of banana ester. Main flavor is bitter with some malty sweetness and a bitter bite, perhaps from roasted barley. Good oily-creamy body. Finish is a bit too bitter with no true noble hop flavor. Not really an IPA, more of an IPA-Irish red fusion.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark amber and clear. Not much head. Aroma of citrus, some spice, and sweet malts. Taste of grapefruit, spices, caramel, and bread. A little over a month old, but seemed to be lacking in flavor. Guess I was expecting more from this IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 9/24/14. Clear dark orange to amber pour with dense full inch of offwhite head. Strong hoppy aroma; very juicy syrupy sweet citrus, tangy pert resin or pine as well. Average to soft carbonation, thick creamy mouthfeel, dry and sticky finish. Citrus zests fill the flavor, carmel malt, bitter florals, pine and resin taste at finish. Nothing bad, just wish I tried it closer to bottling. Hoping for something juicier.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a gorgeous amber color with decent lacing and head retention. Almost drinks like a red would....malty and a bit sweet on the nose and same on the taste. Not a bad beer, but Sierra’s best either.
