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: There’s a reason Sierra Nevada is a pioneer of craft beer, they know how to make it exceptionally well. Easy drinking and deliciously well rounded.
Overall good hoppy beer with nice old-school hop profile. Crisp bitterness, citrus hop flavor. Malt is light and a little dry; would like a little more oomph to match the hops. tntracey (65) - - JUN 12, 2017
Fine tasting IPA that will not burn your taste buds out. Delicious beverage that hits the spot after a mountain bike ride. Could drink this beer all afternoon! sephyrott (109) - - JUN 8, 2017
Pint from tap at the Drapers Arms. Hoppy, strong and rounded IPA. Not extremely hoppy tough, but decent and very rewarding. Great taste. DavyK (132) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - JUN 5, 2017
Bottle from Redmond’s. Aroma is tropical, but not overly strong. Roasted pineapple, maybe some mango. Definitely assertive at first - slightly aggressive hopping, but as the palate beds in, the chewiness becomes really pleasant. A grower, as your work down the glass. Deep orange colour is satisfying. It’s lovely to look at, and actually quite easy drinking for the style, once you get over the big hit at the start. wirebender28277 (12) - - JUN 4, 2017

I keep trying other beers - there are so many - but I just keep coming back to this one. This is the IPA gold standard in my books. Hoppy citrus pine delight. drostj (113) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Bottle. Strong, rich hop flavor well balanced with some citrus and pine. Pleasant aftertaste. Very nice IPA. WillemsUrenkel (1819) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2017
0,355 l botttle. Unclear bright orange with a nearly two finger head in the glass. Hopy tropical fruity and resin on the nose. Taste starts with a hopy shot, some tropical fruits, honey and malt and sweetness in the second row. Pleasant bitterness but no hop hammer. Really decent stuff.

Reliable go to IPA if it’s fresh. Perfect balance of malt foundation with just the right amount of hop bitterness.
I’d prefer more hop nose.
I also wish they’d print on bottles the brewed on date. Without that it’s a crap shoot on whether you’re getting fresh or stale ale.
