Nice IPA from Sierra... it has the hop character I look for in an IPA. Nice hoppy citrus, pine hop flavor... personally, I would have liked a little less malt character. Excellent on tap, good in the bottle.

Purchased at a new store in Gainesville. Not a strong aroma, but nice. Beautiful amber color with medium bodied head. Nice bitter hoppy, pine flavor, with a nice lingering aftertaste. Overall another great beer from Sierra Nevada.

Bottle. Clear golden pour with alot of rising bubbles and a thick white head. Very nice hop aroma with a taste to match. Some malt sweetness up front with a nice bitter finish, rather nice.

Good looking copper pour with milky foamy head which leaves some nice retention. Obvious piney hops are there to smell but as well as a lingering caramel maltyness which really comes through on the taste. The hop backbone is well balanced with the toasty sticky malt flavor. Fairly well quenching. Pretty solid overall.

Pours a deep copper/red with a dense white head. Aroma is of American hops and pale malt. Taste is of some sweet malt and then a sharp bitter finish. Very tasty.

Ron (3854) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Pours a deep copper color with a nice lasting head. Aroma is big on citrus and hops, with some caramel malts. Flavor is much the same, but a bit more balanced. Smooth texture with a bite at the end. A good IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 Bouteille: Parfum de houblon rsineux, avec quelques accents citriques. En bouche, oranges, citrons, rsine et bois se partagent le haut de laffiche, suivi de prs par la douceur dun certain caramel / malt et de quelques pices poivres. Le corps est moyen, un peu huileux en bouche. Chaque gorge en provoque une autre et une autre, et une autre... Une trs, trs bonne bire, et trs accessible - en ce sens o son amertume nest pas trop dstabilisante. (pour ceux qui naiment pas le style)

Pours a very cloudy orange/amber with a thin, soapy, off-white head. Great odor, sweet sticky hops. Starts off with a slightly sweet, grapefruity hop taste, like the regular SN IPA, but holy cow the hop bitterness aftertaste will kick your face. Great bitterness, I really like the aftertaste. Even better than the regular IPA.
