Poured from 330ml bottle into tulip glass. Deep orange colour, cloudy but clear. Big thick white head with good lacing. Aroma is of pine and sweet fruits with subtle malt notes. Taste seems understated for a Double IPA, apricote and grapefruit characters, the hoppy bitterness is solid but well rounded. Good body and well suited carbonation. Smooth and lingering finish...but was hoping for something a little more robust and characterful from such a well regarded big IPA. Overall, enjoyable and happy to have plenty more.

Beaut colour and lasting head.Nice malt and hopy aroma of grass, citrus and spice. Quite bitter, a little above medium for me with a really nice malt sweetness. Bitter and dry finish.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle at North Bar, Leeds. Golden, semi-coppery orange colour, big fluffy head. Very intrieguing flavour, lots of very interesting notes in taste. Pine, grapefruit/citrus overtones, hops. Lots of hops, as you want from an IPA. Hoppy and bitter finish, drinkable, but also a bit heavy. Still, a lovely IPA thats interesting and different while still being definitively a proper IPA. I approve.

Great beer as should be expected from Sierra! Poured beautiful caramel color with nice sticky white head and good lacing? Fantastic body with creamy smooth rush through the mouth? All the hops flavor you would expect and loaded! Not the boldest Ive had but very pleasing with nice finish that last for ever? Good to know this will be around for a long time?

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pous a clear golden orange with a small white head. Loving the aroma. Very piney with a touch of citrus and a load of grapefruit. Grapefruit is right there in the taste with piney hops. Little bit of grass and citrus in there as well. Fantastic drinkability and all in all a massive crowd pleaser

355ml bottle at home. Pours amber with a big offwhite head. Tastes bready. malty , notes of pine with a sharp dry finish. Very well balanced IPA, bitterness level is upfront but still goes down smoothly. Excellent.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. The beer is a nice golden amber color with a nice white head perched on top. The aromas are bread, grass, and citrus. The taste is bready malt and bitter hops, but not biting. Very nicely balanced overall. This is another tasty brew from a great brewery.

JamesCory (54) - Wheeling, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2011
12 oz. bottle poured into glass.
Aroma: Grapefruit mixed with grass and a little spruciness. Hops dominate the aroma, as they should. Appearance: Medium brown, with nice amount of head, some cloudiness, and a little activity in the glass. Overall, and interesting looking brew. Taste: Definitely hoppy and bitter, but smooths out towards the end to make this one of the more drinkable IPAs Ive had. Palate: Lively carbonation, medium body. Overall: Its beers like this that are starting to make me reconsider my aversion to IPAs.

Bottle shared by my father-in-law. Pours a burnt amber with minimal white head. Aroma is moderately full of grapefruit and spruce. Flavor is juicy, lots of citrus along with some spruce and a touch of caramel. Lingering orange juiciness. A logical next step after SN Pale Ale.
