bottle. pours a bright copper with a fluffy, chunky head with lots of lacing. Aroma is juicy and bitter hops. Delicious malts and hops come together seemlessly. Sierra Nevada can always produce a rockstar or the industry standard. jbruner (5293) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Pours a clear golden orange on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave great lace. Aroma of resinous citrus and pine hops, the three c’s, and some nice caramel malt. Taste follows, nice balance, moderate bitterness. Very clean, very nice. airrick2003 (872) - Louisiana, USA - NOV 22, 2015
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

Bottled. Nice golden copper. Has a nice smooth taste. A nice bold floral piney hops. Has a hint of gratefruit and Orange. Great IPA. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2015
Draught at the tasting room in San Diego. Clear golden/copper beer with a nice offwhite head. Fruity hop aroma, peach, grapes, citrus, hay, biscuits, floral notes. Hoppy grape flavor, citrus, hay, floral, some peach and caramel. Not top class.

Tap @ Toronado. Not much aroma. Taste initially malty and then takes a hard right into full hoppiness! Great surprising beer with hops of pine.

Draught @ Stag’s Head (10/28/15). Dark amber with small foamy beige head, slight caramel aroma, low carbonation, salty caramel taste, long bitter finish. A bit too bitter. That1Guy (2237) - Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2015
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. Ctplt777 (533) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Pretty good wet hopped ipa. Aroma doesn’t blast you in the face but it’s pleasant. It’s 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. markducommun (1224) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Crystal clear deep amber, amble foamy yellowish tan head. Big grapefruit citrus, light pine, honey. Pleasantly bitter, quite a lot of malty sweetness. Some light spice. Chewy, slightly oily, medium body. Longer finish. Good.
