4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber body with a thick soapy froth of a head leaving plenty of lace. Aroma is citrusy and floral with some bitterness showing through. Flavor is pleasantly bitter and becomes drier toward the finish. Some caramel and citrus along with a light floral hop flavor.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly red pour, nice head, constant lacing. Pine-hop aroma. Some sweetness, then comes the hop blast, Some sticky resin flavor, abit sugary, hops dominate, but aftertaste is sweet and clean, VERY well balanced, great brew, great brew! Love this one, can’t wait to have again, Bravo Sierra Nevada!!!!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear reddish-gold. This white head that lasts. Citrusy hop aroma. Some malt sweetness hidden in the hop bitterness. Medium-light bodied. Bitterness lingers. I am not tasting the hops due to the bitterness, but I do like this IPA.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle.
Appearance: Amber orange with a foamy, off-white head. Great head retention.
Aroma: Lighter than expected I got some pine notes but had a hard time getting much else. A bit too cold perhaps.
Taste: Big pine hop notes and good malt sweetness to even everything out. Not overly sweet mind you, just enough to help keep things drinkable. Nice herbal and citrus notes. This one has great balance!
Palate: Medium-high carbonation with a medium-rich mouthfeel and a long, bitter finish. Just the way it should be!
Overall: This one has scary drinkability. Definitely worth seeking out if you haven’t had it yet!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Bishops Arms, Stockholm. Amber body with a thick off white head. Grassy hops in aroma with fruity and piney notes. Very piney flavour with lots of citrus, fruit and caramel notes. You can taste the alcohol as well. Creamy texture.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very nice IPA. Close to a double or imperial IPA but not quite there. Pours coppery witha decent head. Aroma is kinda a mix of pine and earthen - plesant. Taste is nice and dominated with hops, as it should be. It is balance which allows you to enjoy the beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; poured an orange-copper color with a medium off white head. Some lacing there. Looked like rust, in a good way. Aroma wasn’t too assertive; mostly earth and citrus. Flavor also wasn’t quite up to my expectations, especially with all the good IPAs out there. Pretty well balanced, but more bitterness than flavor provided by the hops.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
transparent uncarbonated golden colored body. The mouth feel wwas tingly from start to finish. The flavor contained notes of deep complex hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.
