3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh bottle from Premier Gourmet. Peachy colour, big head, lacey. Mild mango aroma. Mellow IPA, big IBU, lots of malt, yet different fruity and citrus hops, still some palate erasing. Not the typical American DIPA, but good drinkability, tasty and satisfying.

Smart, polished and assured. Almost ’lite’ but there’s a lot to be said for balance and sensible palate weight. Almost sessionable despite the 8%+. Some funky grassy bitterness late but well matched with a decent load of hops. I find this very very easy to like.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 20/20
Birra dal colore dorato tendente all’ambrato. Schiuma cremosa e persistente. All’olfatto sentori di esotica, carsmello e frutta candita. Al palato corposa con note lievemente liquorose ma piacevoli e non stucchevoli, ananas e pesche sciroppate hanno la prevalenza. Nal finale amara e aromatica da luppolo fresco, pulisce ed asciuga il palato dalla liquorosità sentita in precedenza. Un’ottima birra particolare e contraddittoria. Piacevolmente beverina.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark golden to bronze in color. Dense, tight bubbled, heavy cream colored head. Thick lace. Aromas of citric and piney hops. Some honey and old sap and soap scents. Feel is a bit sticky. Flavors include sweet malt and honey, grapefruit, pine and, I’m still catching some soap. Just not digging the IIPAs from Anderson Valley. Anise, as I get toward the bottom of the glass I final detect the component that is really throwing me off . ANISE - One of those thing I am very selective in liking, and in beer is not one of the places. 2/13

Sample at Winking Lizard during the "Sierra Nevada Barrel Aged Night" on 12/09/2016. The beer is a cloudy orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing. Citrus, hops and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of piney hops, fruit and caramel malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hop aftertaste. Above average overall.
