UPDATED: JUN 3, 2015 330 ml bottle from Järve Selver. Pours nice, slightly hazy golden with a little head. Aroma has a bit of fruitiness, floral hops. I guess it has gone a bit stale compared with what it should be closer to bottling date - but it’s still good. Taste has abundance of bitter hops, strong malt backbone balanced with heavy hops. Not much of carbonation left. Doesn’t have much fragrance though, quite down the earth drink. Has some lingering bitterness at the end. Good beer, not too pretentious and a great example of the style. Will try it again, especially when I get it closer to the brewery, not the half a world away as I am trying it right now. // Re-rate in June 3, 2015. Got it now in Japan, quite fresh. Aroma is still quite laid back, taste is a lot maltier than I remember from first time.Citric hops, making my tongue tingle. Still, simple in contemporary terms but I can understand why this has become an icon in the beer world. +0.3 points

12/25/17: 12 Ounce Bottle @ The Cosmopolitan $1 Tip playing video poker. Had this beer dozens of times, never knew I haven't rated in the past. Amber pour with white head. Beautiful hops aroma, love the aroma and taste. Nice balance of hops and malt, bitter and pleasant. Very solid mouth feel, carbonation holds well, firm going down. Overall very good Pale Ale, well done Sierra Nevada!

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 355ml bottle as gift. Pours clear honey colour. Nose is malt with citrus fruit. Taste is malty, quite bitter, hops, pine, citrus. Not life-changing but pretty nice. really. This was the first IPA I discovered in UK supermarkets - stopped me drinking rancid larger a few years ago!

GreenCat (214) - SLOVENIA - DEC 31, 2017
0,355 l bottle. Pours clear amber with big frothy off white head. Aroma is very malty with some caramel and flowery hop note, a bit of pollen. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter. Finish is long, pleasant spicy and grassy lingering bitterness. I expected more citrus hop character. Very drinkable and nicely rounded.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2017 Colore ambrato, cristallina. Schiuma bianca soffice e persistente. Profumi non particolarmente evidenti, leggermente erbacei. In bocca è davvero delicata e ben equilibrata. Fresca e dissetante.

cwill (108) - Parkesburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2017
Dark amber pour with a frothy white head.Clean and fruity aroma. Some pine and hops; perhaps a little apricot and grapefruit. Taste follows nose. Excellent pale ale. Pops with fruity flavor and hops without being even slightly overpowering. Great beer between an IPA and APA.
