Lacks a strong defining hoppy taste like some American IPAs. Well balanced and easy to drink though.

A truly great beer. One of the beers that first got me into drinking craft beers and a great step away from traditional lagers etc. This was one of my first ’craft beers’ a while back and to this day I can remember that incredible aroma and mesmerising taste. After trying so many super-hopped IPA’s in the last 18 months or so I’d expect to appreciate this beer a little less nowadays..but I just had this again last week and it is still just as good as that very first day. A superb pale ale.

Best beer ever. Will readily drink it. May be a bigger microbrew, but tasty none the less.

Very good pale ale. One of those beers everyone gets when they first get into craft. When pickins are slim, it is a godsend.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 Hazy golden color, big white head. Medium to full body, average carbonation. Aroma is hops, citrus, herbs, malts, caramel. Nice balance between sweetness and bitterness. Great beer.

Mas info en http://www.encopasabemejor.com/2013/07/sierra-neva aroma es impresionante a la vez que penetrante, unas notas florales lupulizadas que se entremezclan a la perfección con otras herbales y cítricas. De entrada nos envuelve con unas notas a cítricos que se deslizan por la boca acompañando al lúpulo dejando una fresca y deliciosa sensación agradable junto a un leve tono a pino finalizando en un sabor dulce malteado muy sutil que en todo su conjunto hacen de esta cerveza una maravilla.

Flavorful hops and a grassy grainy earthy taste, a little sweet but overall pretty good. However the aftertaste brings kind of flat and bitter hops taste.

Bottle. Sweet hops and grain. Clean and crisp with some nice hop bitterness at the end.
