4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of my favorites from Sierra Nevada. Aroma is very strong, as the hop smell is obvious. Taste is amazingly hoppy, with a slightly sweet finish. Not so balanced as the hops stand out far more throughout, so one must really be a "hophead" to enjoy this beer. Overall, this beer is very good and , I will have in my frifge almost every time itís available.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Strong citrus aroma, dark copper look. Taste is bitter yet citrus like with a strong hop taste as well. Refreshing with a 7.2 alcohol percentage take it ez with this one. Overall if your not into the hops just yet I would not recommend it for you but if your a hop head then by all means get some I give it a solid 8

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Strong citrus aroma with hoppy resin. Decently bitter hop bite with wheat malt balance. Not quite a double in terms of hops but great tasting IPA

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber liquid with stable white head. Aroma is very citrusy with some apricots and pleasant malt note. Taste is also complex - mix of smooth bitter and fruity sweet tones. Full body with sticky texture and average carbonation. Lingering dry finish. This is a very good IPA piece, nicely balanced and drinkable.

Pours a dark orange amber. Large fluffy white head with tons of lace. Aroma is very malty and dense hoppy. This is so much a double IPA to me. Loaded with caramel, pine, dense citrus, grapefruit. Medium to full body. Big but smooth bitterness. Dry finish. Nice balance. This is a pretty big IPA.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Thick orange-amber coloured with a soft dark white head. Aromas of floral notes with grapefruit, mandarins and apricots. Nicely balanced. The finish shows some dryness and lingers in the background in a pleasant way. May be best IPA so far.

Wow, is this ever a good beer. Sierra Nevada really knows what they are doing in their tanks. The best American produced IPA Iíve ever had, (and they are the rage right now.) This is truly outstanding beer, and worth the hype. Marvelously complex flavor and taste profile. Excellent mouth-feel and swallow. Finishes clean with dry bitter notes, (very pleasant.) This beer goes right up to the edge but never threatens to go over. TRULY, the best IPA beer available, (and Iíve tried a bunch.) I think Iíll have another right now.
