This is the only craft beer that’s available in Igo CA. It’s found at the Igo store and beer bar. No liquor but who needs it anyway? Not me. This pale ale is wonderful. Sierra Nevada’s bedrock beer. This beer broke barriers and is as good as almost anything you can find.

GenkiGonzo (510) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 20, 2015
Bomber from ABC Stores in Waikiki. Ever so slightly cloudy with a brilliant amber glow. Aroma has grassy hops with honey malts. Very carbonated, nice full mouth bitterness.

jsnicholas (324) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - APR 19, 2015
Bottle (12oz $1.30) Golden with small white head. Aroma seems slightly off, a little funky like a Belgian but much less so? Any way taste is good. Drry and slightly bitter in the finish. Would never refuse this beer, but not a "regular" either. Good. This was my introduction to craft beer many years ago.

Fox13riderco (6) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 18, 2015 does not count
Good staple beer, a good pine taste to it, and addition it has a slight citrus flavor as well. Not my favorite from Sierra Nevada but a good one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bubeer (25) - - APR 17, 2015
Golden colour, not too pale, slightly hazy. Very sparse head, little retention. Not too intense hoppy aroma with a touch of honey. Balanced hops in the taste, which kick-in all the way to the back of the mouth and stay there. Strong carbonation with little bubbles.

Shark_Pants (369) - AUSTRALIA - APR 15, 2015
355ml bottle. Clear amber with small aerated white head. Not a strong aroma but has some honey, pine and fresh bread. Honey, pine and bread in the taste as well, with some accompanying light lemon zest as well. Dry and bitter finish. Not bad but I would love to try this fresh in the US as I think it may have suffered during the shipping to Australia.

Pours amber with nice head. Nice balance of malt and hops with a bit more on the hoppy side (citrus, pine). Medium bitterness for everyday.

From bottle to glass. Deep amber color with white persistent head. Full body with fragrant aromas, just the right amount of bitterness with a fruit delightful finish

355ml bottle. Clear golden with big white head. Fresh hoppy aroma. The taste is dry, medium bitter, mild hops, refreshing!
