(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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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!

Nice golden brown color with nice hops & grapefruit aroma. Love the sweetness and bitterness together in the initial flavor. Finish is a bit too floral for my taste, but this is a great APA. Truly a beer lovers beer, others just cringe and question your sanity.
