12 oz short fat bottle. Smells really good and the taste is above average. Lots of fruity hop notes. Well done for an IPA. B+

Well done Sierra Nevada. Pours amber with a light haziness and a foamy white head. Nose is strong, but not overpowering of hops, with citrus. I expected a BANG of bitter hoppiness, with the title Extra IPA, but thought it was rather subdued, in a fantastic way. Perfect bitterness and hops taste, combined with an easy, lightly carbonated body on palate made this a premium brew. Easily shot up to one of my favorite IPAs now.

Pours a hazy orange amber with a moderate creamy color foam head. Aroma is hoppy citrus with perhaps a touch of pine. However its not an overbearing aroma - fairly light on the nose. Taste is a nice combination of hoppy bitterness and citrus along with some sweetness. As with the aroma, nothing overpowering in the taste. All in all, a quite tasty and easy-drinking IPA.

pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2011
Aroma: Floral, citrus and...hay, maybe? Its all pretty weak, though. Appearance: Sparkling orange amber with a nice, white head. Taste: Heavy bitterness upfront that fades to a balanced sweetness. Palate: Full body, heavy carbonation, crisp texture with a decent finish. Overall: Well crafted and developed, but Im not blown away.

iugrad93 (265) - Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2011
poured from 12oz bottle a reddish color with thick white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, probably cascade, centennial, or citra, but not real strong as other IPAs. Taste has some nice hoppiness and bitterness; not overbearing but again, not as tasty as other IPAs. Medium body with average carbonation with a dry finish as advertised and not too long. Overall, this is a good IPA that would be a nice beer to drink while sitting by the pool.

Pours out an orange amber with a fluffy white head. Delightful hop aroma, doesnt come off as too bitter. Great floral and citrus notes on nose, with only a slight hint of caramel. Enticing. Flavor is a compounded picture of what the nose predicted. Lingering citrus/floral/ some slight pine hops reside in the mouth for a while. Not too resiny, but enough to delight your (my) hop craving. Lingers just a little too long though. Malts are balancing but not as assertive as the hop. Typical doughy/caramel malty sweetness is there, but only just. Turns earthy at the finish. It is a delicious and standout example of the style, but there is better out there.

JDBaker11058 (2005) - Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2011
Appearance: clear coppery red, with grapefruit highlights; medium head. Aroma: lots of pine and citrus; very hoppy over a hint of brown bread. Taste: almost all hops: pine, citrus, floral spice and bitterness. Finish: suprisingly mild with the hops quickly fading. Notes: Not bad for an IPA. Could drink in a pinch.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 3, 2011
Its slightly hazy bronze with a huge, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has loads of fruits, citrus, a little flower and malt. The moderately sweet flavour has notes of fruit, citrus, malt, caramel, and the finish is dry, bitter and citrussy.

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - APR 2, 2011
Bottle 350 ml from www.erzbierschof.ch. Reddish orange with cream head, drawing the glass. Hoppy aromas, malt soft, citrus, pine, fruity notes of melon. The taste is peach, lemon, grapefruit, a bit marmalada of bitter oranges, floral hints. Sweet and bitter, power of bitterness and sweetness of spicy malt. It remain on the lips, like a taste of lipstick after a kiss !
