4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow -- can you say "over-hopped"?
This Extra IPA goes overboard with the hop aroma and flavor, nearly negating any malty tones in the beer. But is that a bad thing? Not in this case. The bitter citrus hops are like a depth charge and combined with a moderate carbonation -- it’s an all-hands-on-deck experience that makes one of the best commercially-available beers.
This isn’t an IPA for landlubbers; its in-your-face experience and high alcohol (7.2%) will take you to Davey Jones’ Locker rather quickly if you’re not careful.

Clear golden color with big foamy head. Aroma has resin, pine, citrus, little bit of caramel and fruits. Extremely hoppy taste with grapefruits, pine, tropical fruits, long lasting bitter aftertaste.Very well balanced and good IPA. Hops hits you like a torpedo!

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
시에라 네바다 브루잉 - 톨피도 엑스트라 IPA 7.2% ABV 지금껏 마셔본 시에라 네바다는 명성에 비해 맥주가 질이 떨어지는 느낌이다. 미국산 홉만을 사용했다는 지극히 애국적인 정서. 강한 풀내음의 IPA
양산형의 전국 유통망을 커버하는 대중적 맥주라 그런 것이다. 실제로 공예 계열의 소량 생산 맥주는 상당히 수준이 높아 같은 회사 맥주가 맞는지 가끔씩 의심스러울 때가 있다. 대형 마이크로 브루어리들의 특징이다.
1세- 대형 크래프트 맥주 브루어리들은 21세기에 등장한 스타일과 개성으로 무장한 제 3세대 마이크로 브루어 들에게 종종 해치워야할 골리앗으로 상정되기도 한다. 역사란 이런점에서 언제나 즐겁다. 다윗이 자라 골리앗이 되고 또다시 새로운 다윗이 나타난다

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber body, stable white head leaves some lacing behind. Not the strongest aroma of pine and malts. Taste is a sharp bitterness at first, balanced out by a sticky, caramelly malt backbone, leaving behind a lasting spicy and dry aftertaste. Body is full, average+ carbonation. Pretty nice, only the aroma was disappointing.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Strong pleasant citrus & flowery pine notes with a subtle, sweet malt smell.
A: Clear reddish amber (filtered) and a tall white head.
T: Piney like eating a forest, but it is still subtly sweet. It coats the tongue nicely and lingers. This it the right amount of hopiness, solid bitter; bready sweet malt flavors combine for a true IPA treat.
P: medium body, dry, above average carbination, refreshing & not filling.
O: A very solid ipa on all counts.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich, reddish, golden colour. Bright floral aroma similar to Founder’s Centennial. The head is good and yellowish. Slight smell of corn with a toasty caramel note. Flavour is sweet with a little caramel but also slightly metallic. The bitterness somewhat overpowers the what would be quite delicate floral flavours. It’s still nice but maybe made in too large batches to really have that true craft beer essence any more.
