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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
