UPDATED: APR 2, 2011 Pours a beautiful reddish orange with a nice creamy head. Hop and malt mix create a watermelon taste (at least on a not so fresh bottle) similar to Victory’s Yakima Glory; some tang . Balanced and good beer. Habanero (4912) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2011

Bottle pours orange/gold with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of grapefruit, pine, caramel, and light florals. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of lemongrass. Overall body is moderate, sticky, and aggressively bitter. llcooldave (1226) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Pours a bright copper color like a shiny penny. Equally bright citrus pine hops aroma as well. Flavor is touch of malt with more of the bright citrus pine flavors. Overall, it’s a very good classic IPA. Did I mention that it was bright? garza (574) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - MAR 7, 2011
Golden-amber colour with average light tan head. Grass and herbal aroma, very fresh and hopy. Some floral notes too. Very bitter taste, light sweetnes. Round flavour with malts and hops well balanced. Medium body, average to low carbonation, oily feel and bitter palate on the finish. Good one.

This is a surprise. For a beer I can buy at my regular supermarket this is really good. Appearance is a clear reddish w/ an off white head. My glass was coated with a nice lacing upon finishing. Taste is a tiny hint of malt and a huge whallop of hops. Citrus, a tiny hint of pine and spice, grapefruit is really strong. Palate is a bit dry and thin with an aftertaste of hop bitterness that lingers nicely. Overall I am impressed, this might be one of my favorite offerings from Sierra Nevada. crossovert (14146) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
12 oz bottle.
Pours a clear orangeish gold with a nice foamy white head that sticks for a bit before receding. It leaves some decent lacing.
It has a nice aroma. There is a heightened hop presence here over say an SNPA. There are nice herbal pine and citrus accents along with some subtle sweetness.
The taste has the signature SN yeast and malt flavors with some piney bitter hops to go along. I have always found SN ales to have a bit of a solely bitter taste, it isn’t a hoppy bitterness, just straight up bitter flavor.
It is a decent take on the IPA, nice bitterness level though not really out of balance with the strong malt presence.
