jeremyh70 (1089) - Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2013 2013 bottle into a tulip glass A: A nice looking clear bright amber with a creamy two fingers of white head with good retention and good lacing. Classic looking beer. S: Citrus and light fruit aromas that are pleasant with a hint of grass and caramel sweetness. T: Nice caramel sweetness first followed by some citrus fruit flavors and a moderate piney bitterness that fades into a citrus pith. Bitterness lingers a bit and hints at being astringent but never succeeds, which is nice. Finishes semi dry with only a touch of bitter remaining. M: Mouthfeel falls somewhere between crisp and creamy with a medium/full body and perfect medium/high carbonation for the style that helps accentuate the mouthfeel and scrubs just enough away to leave a taste in your mouth that makes you want to take another drink. O: Theres a reason Sierra Nevada is a pioneer of craft beer, they know how to make it exceptionally well. Easy drinking and deliciously well rounded. ---Jeremy H

KraftowyJakup (123) - POLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Na początku owocowe od chmielu, głwnie cytrusy, może trochę sosny, ale po chwili wychodzą karmelowe słody, co trochę psuje efekt. Jednak balans jest niezły, nie jest za słodkie, goryczka średnia w kierunku średnio-wysokiej, odpowiednia, chociaż trochę zalegająca.

Sampled from a variety 12 pack, but I have had this one hundreds of times before. It pours a nice amber color with a thin head and a slight cloudy haze. It has a pleasant but light aroma with a citrusy vibe to it. Tastewise, it has a well balanced combo of resiny, piney hops with a slight fruity touch and a long bitter finish. Not the most nuanced IPA, but very tasty nonetheless. I wind up getting this one a lot because it is one of the best deals around here for a very solid IPA (a 12 pack can be had for $13 or so usually). It used to be one of my favorite overall beers a few years back, but has been lapped a bit by the continued innovation in the IPA sphere. Still, it is one of my go-tos and a very worthy brew for any and all beer drinkers alike.

Wysoka, trwała, średniopęcherzykowa piana. Niezbyt ładna. Aromat: Przyjemnie cytrusowo, świezy chmiel, zapach jak z paczki z granulatem. Słodko od karmelu, lekka przyprawowa nuta. Smak: Wyraźny słodowy profil, zdominowany przez słd karmelowy, słodkie, goryczka wyrazna choć nienachalna goryczka, bardziej cytrusowa niż ziołowa.Nie zalega. Oglnie dobra IPA, moim zdaniem słd karmelowy robi tutaj robote.

baranzii (11) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Barwa złocista, klarowne ze średnio pęcherzykową pianą ktra jednak ładnie się utrzymuje i formuje czapę. Zapach to chmielowa przyprawowość, niezbyt intensywny. W smaku to samo, niewiele można dodać. Goryczka wysoka, krtka - nie zalega. Ciało średnie, idealne jak na ten styl, jest nawet lekko "slick" - to lubię! Wysycenie odpowiednie. Overall naprawdę dobra, mega pijalna, orzeźwiająca IPA. Brakuje w niej tylko intensywności i rznorodności smaku i aromatu.

I dont quite understand the very high rating that this IPA boasts. Dont get me wrong, its a solid IPA but no great flavours here.

shawnmurphy (59) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2017
12-ounce bottle briskly poured. A gorgeous pour: thick, creamy tannish-white head lingers and clings to glass; slightly hazy orange-amber color; visible rising bubbles. Aroma is subdued: pine needles, sweet bread, pineapple and passion fruit. Taste is hop-forward with the usual citrus and pine taste characteristics, followed by sweet caramel and biscuit, then followed by a mellow hopiness. Very well-balanced between bitter and sweet. Body is medium, mouthfeel is smooth, and finish is dry and refreshing. This is somewhere between an IPA and an Imperial IPA. Billed as an Extra IPA, its the perfect beer for hopheads who dont like the astringent hopiness of some assertive imperials.

danjs5 (149) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2017
From a can. Pours clear amber with frothy head. Floral hoppy aroma. Malt sweet upfront with hoppy bitterness throughout. Medium body and clean finish. Very pleasant and easy drinking with great hops flavour. A winner.

anstei (1699) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 8, 2017
Can. Pours clear golden. Aroma is grassy and flora hops, yet hinting at a massive malt dose to come up. Body is medium, rather on the bitter side, some sweetness, and with a rather soft carbonation. Good balance though. Matching palate, yet rather short. Nice.
