CacheManyHose (187) - HONG KONG - SEP 28, 2014
From Q Club. Completely clear straw-light greyish yellow with almost no head or carbonation - very still. Smells of corn, lightly spiced malt. Tastes of mild hop, corn, slight spice and soapiness. Body is medium, a small amount of carbonation and slickness. Only slightly better than your typical mass market lager. Expected a bit more from Sierra Nevada!

HKdIPA (243) - HONG KONG - SEP 28, 2014
2014 bottle from QClub at home. Very light (too light) straw yellow pour. Aroma is slightly hoppier than a Tsingtao or similar. Taste is unremarkable - again, slightly slightly hoppier than a macrolager. Boring - disappointed.

varanid99 (520) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2014
Clear pale gold with a soapy head. Floral, slightly skunky aroma, maybe a little grapey. Taste is sweet malt, fruit, grain. It’s really not a favourite.

Kita (1093) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle, 0.355l. Clear golden color with small frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of herbal hops, must, flowers with some skunky notes. Taste starts with light sweet grainy malt, follows by citric and grassy acidity, crisp and dry mouthfeel, while finish is quite bitter. Light to medium body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Message to Sierra - do not brew this anymore...
