Very tasty. The cost was $1.25 U$S in Utah. making this the best tasting beer that I have ever had in that affordable price range. I would have liked to have tried the celebration ale, but it was not available. Oh well. This is definetly worth buying and enjoying. As a matter of fact I am going to enjoy some more of it, and some more of it, and some more of it. Excellent beer!

Rich amber color with thick head that quickly dissapears. Very citrusy aroma and piney aftertaste. The way Sierra Nevada brews their beer in the bottle is an interesting alternative that sometimes leaves a yeasty flavor and some yeast floating around in your bottle.

Nice rich colour, pleasant aroma. Quite citrussy, hoppy flavour, with a lingering bitter aftertaste.

Tyler*Durden (72) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2006
Amber colour with diminishing head and lots of carbonation. Definite aroma of citrus and hops. Citrus taste with a bitter and dry finish which is almost a little too much.

A good beer I will be looking for other brews by this company. Somewhat nice aroma. Good balance of hops and malt. Creamy head. I am rapidly being converted to buying California based microbrews.

This is the benchmark beer. The best beer made at this volume hands down. We all know what it tastes like...so whatever.

BobbyW3363 (154) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2006 Clear, dark golden with a large, creamy white head. Mild hoppy, grassy aroma. Great hoppy, spicy flavor that is very well balanced. Close in flavor to an IPA. Nice body and very smooth mouthfeel. Moderately carbonated. Overall this is an everyday favorite. Something I consistently order at restaurants or pick up at the grocery store.

24 oz. bottle. Pours amber with medium head. Easy to drink, citrusy, though I think the aftertaste of the citrus may have been a bit much for me. Still enjoyed the hops, and think this is one you can drink several of without being overwhelmed.
