COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You don’t need a magic mirror to see the lure of this beer. It’s brewed with seven varieties of experimental dwarf hops. These hops are so called because of their uncommon growing method—shorter hedgerows rather than tall trellis systems—that yields a denser heap of cones with unique flavors that diverge from their full-grown botanical counterparts. Each year new and different varieties are grown in this method, creating untried and exciting shifts in hop character.

Mad_Ferret (688) - SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle @ home. Slight hazy pale golden yellow, 2 finger white head. Lemons, green bananas, dough, straw and herbs. Herbal lemon flavour with straw and some yeast. Medium dry bitter finish. Medium to lighter body with soft carbonation and dry texture. Quite dry and refreshing, but maybe a bit too herbal/spicy. More wit than IPA.

Cunningham (5080) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2015
Lovely cloudy pale yellow color with a fine white head. Ok lacing. Coriander, some yeast, mild malty and a bit citric. Medium body and a fine carbonation. God balance between sweetness and bitterness. Smooth easy drinkable wit. Not much IPA here. Herbal, coriander, some yeast, malty and mild citric flavor. Nice refreshing beer.

Vignale (2279) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2015
Flaska från SB. Gyllengul, lätt disig medelhögt vitt skum. Jag har mycket svårt att klämma in den här ölen i IPA-kategorin eftersom det är en relativt klockren wit. Och bra sådan. Fin jästighet, bra tydlig kryddning med koriander och curacao men kanske lite mer örtig och kryddig beska än en genomsnittlig wit. I den humle märks bidrar den med en friskt örtig gräsighet. Mycket gott.

Nice enough beer. Though lacking in something special. Visually beatiful though. Wouldn’t be my fist hand choice while choosing from Sierra Nevadas selection.
