3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Tampa. Pours clear caramel orange with small white head. Nose is malt, slight biscuit, and bitter citrus hops. Flavor is a bit of malt with some caramel sweetness emerging then going into the background from the citrus bitter hops. Interesting light-to-medium bodied wet hop. I guess I expected a more aggressive wet hop beer.

A good beer- it pours a copper color with a piney aroma and some citrus. It has lots of hoppy, bitter flavor with a piney and bitter hop finish with a somewhat dry/ bitter nail-dragging finish. It’s respectable.

Pours a beautiful copper with a HUGE foamy head. Not a great deal of aroma, some pine. Wow, a very hoppy taste, bitter, sweet and malty. I think this may be a new favourite

Top notch. Great piney and citrus aromas. Really nice caramel color with decent lacing. Good weight with a very complimentary carbonation. Big flavors of hops with a continual bitterness that was balanced and not overly harsh.

Mild aroma of hops, some notes of chestnut and a hint of spice and fruit. Nice red color with a huge tan head. Rich malt up front....rich sweetness that is not overpowering. Great texture. Caramel and some hidden cinnamon come through on the finish. Bitterness is even and mild. Older bottle so fresh hop taste has probably faded. Almost creamy mouth feel...nice. Finish is slightly dry with a nice balance of bitter and sweet.

710 ml bottle from bier-deluxe.de, bottled 09/24/14.
Deep amber, hazy body, with a big, quite stable, lacing, creamy, light yellow head.
Lovely, fresh aroma of grapefruit, flowers, lychee, berries, pine, resin, some sweet malts, slight soap.
Taste follows this, with a nice, restrained biscuit malt backbone.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes bitter, quite dry, zesty, piney and subtly sweet malty.
Tasty! Typical, lovely wet hop aromas, but also with a resinous hop bite, balanced by smooth malts. Great IPA, but still not my favourite one from Sierra Nevada.
