COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA is a hop lovers’ delight! The perfect blend of pale and caramel malts makes Gen. Sherman a beautiful copper color. Generous amounts of Northern Brewer, Simcoe, Cascade, and Crystal hops gives this beer a huge citrus-like aroma and flavor, and a long-lingering finish.

Bov (13005) - Bienne, - FEB 22, 2014
courtesy of Sandra Porchet and Jean-Philippe - pretty clear amber beer with a poor head retention; fairly hoppy aroma with notes of quince and tea, flowery; full-bodied, light sweet maltiness; solidly bitter, quite dry, long lasting bitterness and more notes of quince and plums - assertive and very good

Braudog (6781) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle. Golden amber with a frothy-mixed appeal. Moderately woodsy hop aroma and flavors, hinting at a syrupy side, in a good way. Quality and sturdy brew. (#6315, 8/2016)

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a oversized wine glass. The head is a dense, pillowy white fluff bomb. The appearance is a cloudy, vibrant orange. The aroma is floral, tart citrus with a spicy/pine kick. Same goes for the aroma. There is fresh floral succumbing to sweet citrus with a slightly mysterious spicy/pine finish.

3.3
Iphonephan (7070) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2016
From a 12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear copper with a thick, long lasting, off white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Flavors of grass and resin. Bitter finish.

Ahuth (623) - Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2016

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Clear 9-oz. plastic cup From: Liquor King in Fresno, Calif. Price: $7.99 for a 6-pack Purchased: March 31, 2016 Consumed: March 31, 2016 Misc.: No BOD on bottle or 6-pack Picked up on a trip to Fresno, Calif. Cautiously optimistic about Gen Sherman IPA. Reviewed at the Springhill Suites in Fresno. Poured a golden, honey, clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of fluffy, white head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the cup. Lots of foamy, layered lacing on the sides of the glass. Excellent, thick retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.25) Smelled a mix of hops and malts, getting sugary caramel, Casccade hops, floral hops, earthy pine, some grassy, herbal hops and hints of orange blossom. Not a typical IPA. (Smell - 3.75) Taste was even maltier than the nose. Specifically got Cascade hops, caramel, soap, pine, earthy, bitter citrus rind, grassy herbal hops, floral hops, leafy vegetables, faint buttery malts and pretty boozy overall. (Taste - 3.00) Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Boozy, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.25) Did not like this one that much. Bummed that I have five more to drink. (Overall - 3.25) 3.33 76 B-
