Hop juice! Nice copper/gold color with good head. Lace. Great hop aroma--Magnum, Citra & Crystal, per website. Taste is HOPS, also sweet. Alcohol noticeable--warming. Clean bitterness. Almost too bitter. Great beer, but I like the Celebration Ale better.

Bottle to English pint. Pours deep amber, decent head, moderate lacing. Aroma is earthy floral and slight citrus. Taste is well balanced between sweet malts and hop bitterness. Medium body, light carbonation, resin mouth feel. Finishes moderately bitter with notes of with notes of apricot, mango and biscuit. Driest in the end. Very good IPA.

Pours dark gold with a huge long lasting foam head. Very mild hops that slightly builds with most of the hop flavor in your month long after swallowing. A deep breath in through the nose brings more hops.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Slightly hazy amber color with a decent off white head.
Hoppy nose, pines, grass, citrus, some malt and faint tropical notes.
Juicy hop flavors, high bitterness, just enough malt sweetness and some marmalade.
Med-full bodied, rich, long finish, pleasant carbonation. Nice.

This is a very complex and bold IPA. I feel that it is a very drinkable and it is often my go to beer.
Aloha, life is to short to drink poorly crafted beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Citrus aroma with the typical Sierra tastes of pine and resin. What makes this different from other Sierra offerings is the malt balance and creamy texture of the finish. It still has a dry end, but it’s more complex on the palate with slight sweetness and creamy froth.

Bottle from Cherry Bomb. Reddish amber, very small head. Aroma is hops with reisin and pine. Balanced IPA but the hops come through at the end to givea nice bitter finish.
