4.25/5  rDev +27.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured on-tap at the bar in the Venetian. The beer is a deep and vibrant copper-brown color, with a nice, dense head. It has a lighter hops aroma in comparison with American IPAs. On initial tasting, the flavor of hops hits the back of the tongue, instead of front-tongue of most American IPAs. There is a very mild, but hoppy aftertaste, which is pleasant. Very smooth in the mouth. Another of Sin City's brews that warranted a growler fill on our way home.

3.51/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from the tap into a plastic cup, nice slightly hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma was mild hop forward with some pepper spice, taste held a mild citrus hop tang. Mouthfeel was crisp and smooth with a oily finish and a bitter edge. Overall a nice tang up front with a refreshing roll over the tongue and settles in the back with a bitter finish. Went well with a Nathan's Hotdog in Las Vegas, fresh from the tap and while its simple everyone can enjoy it even if IPA's are not a favorite.

I recently spent two weeks in Las Vegas for Red Flag and we were staying inside the Venetian, so I hit up the Sin City bar on the 2nd floor quite often while pre-flighting. Here's one I drank quite a bit:

A- slightly murky golden copper with a small head that didn't lace much, but that may be due to the plastic cups they're served in

S- faint earthy hops, not as much bite as an american-style IPA, with some cereal notes in the background

T- started out with a bittersweet, subdued burst of mild hoppiness, with a bit of citrus throughout and backed up with a decent malt backbone

M- somewhat slick and watery, but not terrible by any means- flavors well retained on the tongue

D- went down really easily, and before I knew it I'd often down three or four before I even headed out in town

Probably not worth going back just for this beer, but definitely a worthy option at any of their bars on the Strip whenever you don't want to just settle for some BMC.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Had a few of these on my last trip to Las Vegas; it's only fair to give it a review.

Appearance: Served from a pitcher to a plastic glass with the Sin City Beer logo. A slightly hazy, orange hue. On-par from what you'd expect an IPA to look like.

Smell: Some grapefruit, some hops. Nothing overly powerful, nothing offensive. Once again, on-par.

Taste: A seemingly conservatively-hopped IPA; very mild bitterness for this style. Refreshing grapefruit notes, a good malt/hops balance.

Mouthfeel: Slightly chewy. A clean finish. The heaviness falls right in the middle for the style.

Overall: True hop-heads may frown a little at the lack of bite. I found this made the style very drinkable and one you could stick with for a while. Not the greatest IPA of all time, but a tasty one nonetheless. An ideal beer for the Vegas strip.

3.4/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served on tap at Sin City Brewing (Venetian) in Las Vegas, NV

A: Pours a slightly hazy dark golden orange to amber in color with some very light hints of visible carbonation. The beer has a thin soapy off-white head that quickly dissipates into a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer. Light lacing is observed.

S: Overall the aroma for this beer is rather mild. There are light hints of earthy and floral hops.

T: The beer has a sweet caramel malt body with a light amount of hop bitterness. Light hints of earthy and floral hops.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly chewy and a little dry in the finish.

O: Very easy to drink and refreshing, since the hoppiness/bitterness is light overall. Could definitely be a session beer. Nothing special but certainly one I could have again.
