Poured from the bottle. Very drinkable, I have a soft spot for this beer because it was one of the first pale ales I ever tasted. Enjoyable hoppy flavour though not the most intense you will find.

Bottle. Orange color with a white head that diminishes. Citrus aroma. Hoppy but well balanced. This is one of my everyday beers.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Apparently the Yanks has this love affair with Pale Ale or IPA’s, tell me, what’s the story behind this? Did a Pommie colonial ship bound for India get stranded somewhere in the Nevada desert? Light amber, slightly hazy. Nice creamy head. Has this magnificently refined aroma from the use of excellent hops. Pronounced but not overwhelming bitterness. Very well done. Now even imported to Denmark - way to go.

braudimusprime (75) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Strongly aromatic pale ale with a dark orange pour and medium white head. Spicy and citrusy with a slight bitter finish. Exceptionally clean taste and feel; Sierra Nevada seems to have a knack for producing beers without a single false note. A great ale for regular consumption.

Pale amber colour. Medium white head. Clear hoppy taste. A little yeast flavour. Fresh, fruity, spicy and smooth with segments of lime.

mj23 (63) - south holland, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Light citrus hop aroma with a small white head. The light orange beer had little lacing in the bottle conditioned beer that I had. Light bitter grapefuit taste with a small finish not bad but not great beer.

Thanks Kevin! Pours a cloudy yellow body with minimal white head. Buring nose hops in the aroma, citrus. Huge citrus taste, slight sweetness up front. Lots of hops. Finish is bitter, with quite a bite to it. Nice!
