jebb12 (47) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2009 A real honest beer you can enjoy several of in any season. Sierra Nevada has a nice smell of Northwestern hops and beautify cooper appearance that invites you to start drinking. The body is medium to light, caramel sweet and hopped just right, kind of like an English pale ale, more floral and grapefruit than bitter.

Bamsen78 (4438) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2015
Bottle. Pours nearly clear lightish amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops and needles, with notes of malt and fruity touches. Bitter, hoppy flavour wit notes of citrus, malt and fruit and subtle estery and caramellish hints. Bitter aftertaste with citric hints. Well-balanced and non-aggressive. Decent stuff.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2015 Amber with a two finger head. Slightly cloudy. Sweet malty aroma. Taste slightly sour. A bit of bitterness. Less character than I thought. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5.6% ABV. American Pale Ale. Poured out a deep amber, 16ºSRM. Nose was a rich malt sweetness. Over ripe fruit. Pronounced carbonation. Graham cracker, pie crust with a pronounced corn syrup sweetness, almost syrupy, but nicely blaanced by the carbonation. Pronounced hop bitterness to leaven all the sweet malty flavors. There is a piney finish. Very good. Very likeable. Nostalgia helps put this on Favorites List. I mean, this is the one of the pioneers that started it all.

Wombata (530) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2015
Aroma: Orange, mango, yeast. Palate: Medium body Flavor: Sweet malty dried mango, caramel and sweet orange. Quite dry finish. Comment: I felt this turned thin rather quickly. Not bad, but not as good as I remember. This may not have been a fresh bottle.

Bottle. Amber body with a white head. Dominating notes of hops, great bitterness. Some notes of oak in the side.

Bottle - clear golden with large frothy head. Very pleasant mild hoppy aroma - constant small carbonation. Smooth in mouth and on tongue. Good bitter citrus tasting - Nice beer.

Juggernaut84 (25) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2015
Orangene Farbe, schwächer Schaum. Das Aroma ist sehr citruslastig, grasig, Limettenschalen. Ich finde es schmeckt und riecht sehr nach Kaktus(feige). Irgendwie nichts so meins.

Franckg (521) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2015
Arômes de terre, pin, citron et zeste d’orange. Du cascade à sa plus simple définition. En bouche, saveurs de résine de pin. Encore de la terre. Citron, pamplemousse, un peu d’orange. Finale plutôt âcre. Texture moyenne, pétillement un peu trop intense. Une ipa qui n’a pas su traverser les années.

Bottle at home, BBF 30/06/2015 (thanks for that Beergium.com). Cloudy orange, creamy white head. Nose and taste are off, sweet malts, lightly bitter, nothing more. Medium body and carbonation. Have to try this one again.

시에라 네바다 브루 - 페일에일 5.6% ABV 미국 크래프트 맥주의 심벌. 드라이하고 직선적인 남성미에 무게감이 실려 가벼운 시트러스의 테일로 끝나는 맥주. 요새것에 비하면 심플하다. 아, 좋았던 옛날이여. 세계에서 가장 성공한 단일 크래프트 맥주이기도 하다. 사무엘 아담스 보스턴 라거보다 많이 팔렸다.하지만 대중적 스테디 셀러들이 그렇듯 상업 페일라거에서 반보정도 앞서나갈 뿐, 크게 인상적인 맛은 아니다.오히려 요새것들에 비하면 맛이 텅텅빈 느낌 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot
