3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep, hazy orange with moderate beige head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of hops and grass with orange, grapefruit, yeast and tangerine noticeable. Light caramel malt presence. Taste is fairly dry and very bitter, lingering after finish. All of this is done very well as a hoppy, yet balanced pffering. Excellent lacing through the finish - Cheers to Chico!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Ludlow Wines. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange-amber that is more gold at the bottom and more amber up high. Big off-white head that leaves some nice lacing behind. Hoppy aroma, with floral notes, pine, citrus, and caramel malt. Bitter hop taste with notes of grapefruit and orange citrus, pine, caramel malts, and a little soapiness. Bold and bitter with a bitter hop aftertaste. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This one gets even hoppier and more bitter as it goes down. Long aftertaste. Strong IPA.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12-oz bottle. Looks and smell like an IPA. Love the texture. Creamy with medium carbonation. Very pleasant. Taste is hoppy, of course with a hint of sweetness on the front end. I canít find anything to not like about this beer. It is not a complex beer but it is full of flavor. Very drinkable. Another solid offering from S.N.

Itís not perfect... but it might as well be. Great dry hop smell and taste. Wonderful IPA. Iím not always a fan of Sierra Nevada but they have done well with this one. Great IPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange gold, off white head. Aroma is hoppy and sweet; fuzzy kiwi, tangerine, caramel, grass. Flavor is, S.O.S. hoppy bitter. I love it! Itís crisp and non-syrupy. This might be the most hoppy bitter non-offensive beer that Iíve ever tasted. Maybe not, but weíll just go with that for now. This is good stuff if you heart hops!
