COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA is a hop lovers’ delight! The perfect blend of pale and caramel malts makes Gen. Sherman a beautiful copper color. Generous amounts of Northern Brewer, Simcoe, Cascade, and Crystal hops gives this beer a huge citrus-like aroma and flavor, and a long-lingering finish.

Bottle I picked up at the grocery store. I grew up in Fresno but until the other day never had anything from Tioga-Sequoia. Starts out with a mild mouthful of hops which seems light on the tongue. But the lackluster finish brings it down. Ok beer, will definitely have it again, but nothing special.

Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a huge lazing white head. The aroma has notes of hops, straw, and lemons. The flavor is sweet is sweet with notes of hops, lemons, straw, and malt, leading to a bitter finish.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle. Golden amber with a frothy-mixed appeal. Moderately woodsy hop aroma and flavors, hinting at a syrupy side, in a good way. Quality and sturdy brew. (#6315, 8/2016)

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a oversized wine glass. The head is a dense, pillowy white fluff bomb. The appearance is a cloudy, vibrant orange. The aroma is floral, tart citrus with a spicy/pine kick. Same goes for the aroma. There is fresh floral succumbing to sweet citrus with a slightly mysterious spicy/pine finish.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Clear 9-oz. plastic cup From: Liquor King in Fresno, Calif. Price: $7.99 for a 6-pack Purchased: March 31, 2016 Consumed: March 31, 2016 Misc.: No BOD on bottle or 6-pack Picked up on a trip to Fresno, Calif. Cautiously optimistic about Gen Sherman IPA. Reviewed at the Springhill Suites in Fresno. Poured a golden, honey, clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of fluffy, white head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the cup. Lots of foamy, layered lacing on the sides of the glass. Excellent, thick retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.25) Smelled a mix of hops and malts, getting sugary caramel, Casccade hops, floral hops, earthy pine, some grassy, herbal hops and hints of orange blossom. Not a typical IPA. (Smell - 3.75) Taste was even maltier than the nose. Specifically got Cascade hops, caramel, soap, pine, earthy, bitter citrus rind, grassy herbal hops, floral hops, leafy vegetables, faint buttery malts and pretty boozy overall. (Taste - 3.00) Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Boozy, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.25) Did not like this one that much. Bummed that I have five more to drink. (Overall - 3.25) 3.33 76 B-

22 oz bottle 2/3/16 (Fresno) Pours orangish amner with a nice white head. Aroma of hops, malt, and citrus. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and easy to drink. Nice brew.

@Sequoia Fresno. Pretty standard IPA. Bitter hops, pine and a little spice with some bready malt to balance. Not bad, not great.

Pint. Some steakhouse in Selma. I thought not a bad us ipa option. Pretty hoppy, tasty. Not a classic by any means but a treat.
