4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2013 2013 bottle into a tulip glass
A: A nice looking clear bright amber with a creamy two fingers of white head with good retention and good lacing. Classic looking beer.
S: Citrus and light fruit aromas that are pleasant with a hint of grass and caramel sweetness.
T: Nice caramel sweetness first followed by some citrus fruit flavors and a moderate piney bitterness that fades into a citrus pith. Bitterness lingers a bit and hints at being astringent but never succeeds, which is nice. Finishes semi dry with only a touch of bitter remaining.
M: Mouthfeel falls somewhere between crisp and creamy with a medium/full body and perfect medium/high carbonation for the style that helps accentuate the mouthfeel and scrubs just enough away to leave a taste in your mouth that makes you want to take another drink.
O: There’s a reason Sierra Nevada is a pioneer of craft beer, they know how to make it exceptionally well. Easy drinking and deliciously well rounded.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smooth velvety head with citrus aroma body. Flavor is mostly of woody hop flavors but the subtle citrus flavors make it pretty nice. From the leaders of the pale ale, the ipa isnt too bad either.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amberish colour, cloudy and some creamy head. Tastes of spruce, citrus, hops and some krokan. Medium body, distinct carbonation without being too aggressive, and a lasting aftertaste of sprucy, bitter hops. Quite refreshingly carbonated and hoppy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
mostly spinny already, 1/3 left. Dark amber ipa with a thick light tan head that lasts and is messy. caramel, pepper bite, green, peach, not really all that fruity, bread, light candy. It’s more of a spicy ipa than anything which is nice, something close to cotton candy, pine. Very good.
