Appearance: pours with a very large beige head, beer is a very clear dark bronze color, almost brown Aroma: egg, bread, pine, grass, dank, floral Taste: very strong bitterness, dark toasted malt, Palate: strong bitter aftertaste, average carbonation, medium mouthfeel Overall: intensely bitter throughout, has some coffee malt in the background, some of these Sierra Nevada beers are the most bitter I've had and I like them, could use a bit more complexity ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @ Toronado. Not much aroma. Taste initially malty and then takes a hard right into full hoppiness! Great surprising beer with hops of pine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber pours amber with a huge, fluffy white head and excellent lacing. Incredibly balanced for an IPA. Very earthy in aroma and flavor. Just clean, bitter, and smooth.

Pretty good wet hopped ipa. Aroma doesnt blast you in the face but its pleasant. Its on the much more earthy aroma side of things than big citrus fruit in my opinion. Taste is earthy, very bitter and a bit of grapefruit and pine. Oily and again, nice bitterness. Overall this is a good wet hopped beer. I rarely get big in your face aromas and tastes from these, but I like to try them. I think the earthiness takes away from the big hop aroma and taste.

Bright orange pour from 22oz bottle at Pazzo. White head. Citrus, bready and malty aroma. Taste is interesting. Grows on you after a few sips. Super bitter, citrus and pine, earthy and malty. Decent IPA. This is a 2014 rated in 2015
