look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.

- Poured into a tulip glass.
