4.04/5 rDev -2.7%
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a snifter.
A: Dark golden hue. Pours a 1 finger, foamy, white head. Lingers. Plenty of spiderweb lacing. Very persistent.
S: Strong hop, with plenty of honey, and orange citrus.
T: Rye bread, bitter hops, a little butterscotch and honey, and a bit of smoked wood chips.
M: Hearty and syrupy body. A little sweetness lingers throughout. Crisp and pristine hop. Bitter, pungent aftertaste. Dry finish.
D: Sip and enjoy.
Atmosphere is really strong. Dark hue, tight foamy head, and pervasive lacing. Nose is hoppy and citrusy with a bit of sweetness. Pungent bready flavor with some hints of sweetness and some wood chips, balancing out a full-on smooth hop bite. Full and robust. Overall, this is a great quaff.

A: Beautiful copper-orange color with two fingers of white head which lingers leaving a large ammount of lacing.
S: Hops, sweet malt, tropical fruit
T: Taste follows the nose. Begins with a blast of hops and finishes sweet. Grapefruit notes.
M: Medium to full bodied. Good amount of carbonation.
O: I enjoyed this one a lot. I love the story of this beer as I have gone to Sierra Nevada multiple times and seen the fields where they grew the ingredients.Great beer.

Fantastic, half a finger of off-white head. The color is a hazy fire orange.
Complex, but not a strong aroma. Each smell yields hints of different styles of beer. First I got an IPA, then a lager, then a saison.
I can see why my nose was jumping from style to style. Starts with a sweet buttery hop, but melds to a wonderful grassy tea flavor for the majority of the taste. It ends with a pleasant bitter hop wall.
Very small bubbles, feel nice. The hops have giving it a oily feel on the palate. It makes me yearn for a overcast spring day, looking out at a forest expanse.
I appreciate these kinds of entries, because it demonstrates that beer doesn't have to be produced with such a large footprint. The ultimate in local, inspiring to start ones own small beer making farm.
