OzarkElmo (319) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Pours a deep, hazy orange with moderate beige head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of hops and grass with orange, grapefruit, yeast and tangerine noticeable. Light caramel malt presence. Taste is fairly dry and very bitter, lingering after finish. All of this is done very well as a hoppy, yet balanced pffering. Excellent lacing through the finish - Cheers to Chico!

phaleslu (9925) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2009
12 oz. bottle from Ludlow Wines. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange-amber that is more gold at the bottom and more amber up high. Big off-white head that leaves some nice lacing behind. Hoppy aroma, with floral notes, pine, citrus, and caramel malt. Bitter hop taste with notes of grapefruit and orange citrus, pine, caramel malts, and a little soapiness. Bold and bitter with a bitter hop aftertaste. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This one gets even hoppier and more bitter as it goes down. Long aftertaste. Strong IPA.

chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2009
12-oz bottle. Looks and smell like an IPA. Love the texture. Creamy with medium carbonation. Very pleasant. Taste is hoppy, of course with a hint of sweetness on the front end. I cant find anything to not like about this beer. It is not a complex beer but it is full of flavor. Very drinkable. Another solid offering from S.N.

Its not perfect... but it might as well be. Great dry hop smell and taste. Wonderful IPA. Im not always a fan of Sierra Nevada but they have done well with this one. Great IPA.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear orange gold, off white head. Aroma is hoppy and sweet; fuzzy kiwi, tangerine, caramel, grass. Flavor is, S.O.S. hoppy bitter. I love it! Its crisp and non-syrupy. This might be the most hoppy bitter non-offensive beer that Ive ever tasted. Maybe not, but well just go with that for now. This is good stuff if you heart hops!

Another fairly standard IPA with a twist. This one has stronger grapefruit flavorings than one might expect, and it makes it very easy to drink. Probably the easiest IPA to drink that I have ever had to be honest. Smell is very hoppy, so if you like that combined with a twinge of fruit flavor, this beer is for you.

12oz. Resin! Smells like shoving your face into a bucket of fresh hops. Slight malt aroma comes through. Totally balanced drinking! The hops are strong in flavor and aroma but the bitterness is soft and compliments the malt. Yay beer!
