3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottle to glass. Aroma is aggressively grassy with some pine notes. Hazy orange with a medium sized white head, lots of tiny bubbles. Taste is, well, interesting. Sort of minty with some citrus. This definitely isn’t the danky Cali west coast hops I was expecting. a light caramel sweetness. interesting. a little astringent upon drinking a few sips. decent, but wouldn’t order a second

Bottle pour. Clear golden with a small white head, but good lacing. Grassy, malty, hoppy, and a little musky aroma. Medium body. Hoppy taste with a light bitter aftertaste.

A lighter hop aroma than the sequoia pale. Definitely hoppier than the pale, this has a strong bitter hop body and a crisp finish. Okay.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Lodgepole general store in Sequoia National Park. The pour is clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is floral hop along with some resin. Malt is present, though a bit muddled light sweetness. The taste is a mixture of the floral resin hops, introduction of pine notes, and the lightly sweet caramel malt. Not all that clean or fresh tasting. The palate is medium bodied, softer carbonation, and slightly dirty bitter finish. Decent enough.

22oz bottle (double dry hopped version - not sure if different or not) in a teku. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops, pale and caramel malts, light fruits, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of thebeerprophet. Perfect one finger white head with a nice pale golden color to the body. Uniform head that held for almost a minute; lacing is okay. Aroma is grapefruit, kumquat, and tangy unripened peach. Taste is boldly hopped, but the use of simcoe/cascade/crystal reminds me of citra and willamette. Slightly bitter, but with that nice unripened peach flavor as well. Mouthfeel is a tad watery.
