Bottle from Taniguchi. Pours bronze with a light beige head soapy like sea foam. Has a toasted malt aroma, floral hopping, pine, brown bread, light chocolate. Toasty flavour too, wheat crackers, light caramel, pine hops. Drinks wonderfully, creamy body with good carbonation, moderate bitterness, quite full. A no-nonsense beer that does what satisfying beer should - has all the parts to make it go down well.

Nothing says Christmas like a Sierra holiday brew. Definitely full of that IPA hop.

dysenteri (324) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2016
Bottle. Hazy reddish brownish color with minimum white head. Not much aroma, passionfruit, citrus, malts. Bubblegum. Light mouthfeel, small sweetness with kinda harsh bitterness in the back.

On tap at The Burger Bar. Pours a copper colour and is a dericous hop slap with a heap of pine and spice.

One of my favorite seasonal beers. Head takes forever to dissipate and from there it’s wonderful pine and resin hop flavors.

Holtguy (181) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2016
This is a gorgeous looking beer. Clear amber with a fluffy cream colored head that lingers a long time. Aroma of pine and citrus hops. Flavor is hop bitterness balanced with malt that is significant but not too sweet. It’s well balanced. Hop bitterness in the finish with a bit of spiciness. Tremendous beer. I forgot how good this was.

4.2
tekstr1der (501) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 4, 2016
Rich dark amber pour with beige cap that fades to a ring. Aroma is earthy hop, floral notes with a hint of pine and just-noticeable bready malt. Flavor follows identically as the well-balance ensemble of flavors meld with a slightly hop-forward advance throughout the sip. Super tasty, and very pleasant aftertaste. I usually have this each year and enjoy it, but don’t remember it being damn good.
