2016 bottle from Sake no Taniguchi. Pours a bronze-copper, nice light beige head and lacing. Earthy aroma but fresh and green, herb, citrus. Good mild flavour, caramel earthy malt, citrus, pine, a light herbal mint. It’s smooth over the palate, good balance of carbonation and bitterness, easy to gulp. Not a wower, but a solid fresh IPA that showcases the wet hops well. Leini (2056) - SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2016
355ml bottle. Amber body with a medium head. Pine, resin, grapefruit and a hint of floral notes. Samuel214 (1147) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2016
Flaska från SB. Tallbarr, granskott, honung, brödiga toner, lite citrus och fruktiga inslag. Oljig kropp med en klibbig beska. Humleolja och verkligen känsla av "blöt" humle. GarageBrewer80 (533) - SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2016
Flaska från SB. Mörk bärnstensfärgad kulör med smutsvit skumkrona. Doft av citrus och rostad karramemalt. Halvsöt kropp med mediumbeska. Smak av tallbarr, aprikos, gran och citrus. Senap (739) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2016
Här var det en ipa med ordentligt tryck i beskan! God men saknar lite frukt för att vara helrätt!

12oz bottle from Beer Run. Fresh hop aromas, piney, grapefruity. Clear orange-gold with a mostly lasting white head. Dry, juicy, aromatic, well-balanced. Medium bodied. teamsale (273) - Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Bottle pours a highly carbonated clear amber with a two-finger very thick tan head and abundant lacing. Aroma is pine, bark, fruit. Flavor is woodsy, malty, hoppy. Mild to medium bitterness is much more prevalent in the aftertaste. Finishes a little on the burnt side. axl (876) - Lund, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2016
355ml bottle. Clear shiny amber with thick two finger white head. Dank hoppy aroma with orange, nectar, caramel, citrus, light grapefruit and floral hop notes. Taste is light bitter with orange, light grapefruit, caramel and light floral notes. Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation and sweet hoppy aftertaste with some almost burnt touches. thedm (6184) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 25, 2016
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a head of frothy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a uncarbonated semi-transparent orange brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The weak aroma was floral and mild hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mild citrus and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. coachd (836) - Missouri, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Very fresh hop aroma. Earthy, grassy, clean not overwhelming. Nice color, dark for an IPA with a cream colored tuft of foam. Tastes nicely hoppy, strong but not bitter. Aftertaste is long lasting, hoppy and refreshing. The palate is a little thin; I could have used thicker or higher carbonation, it seems stuck in between to me. Overall this is good, Sierra Nevada is showcasing how fresh an IPA can be. This could become a go to IPA for me.
