Poured from a bottle into a 16 oz pilsner--aide rarely aggressive pour produces a paper thin head which does not last. Golden clear/filtered color with mild lacing. Aroma is surprisingly rich and pleasing with grapefruit hops, subtle mangoes, and malt. Flavor is moderate hops, grapefruit, malt, and some toffee. Mouth feel is medium and foamy. Overall I think this is a very good IPA--I've updated this review on re-sampling it.

This poured a light caramel-golden amber color with decent foaming. The aroma just bursts out of the gate with a great layer of grapefruit and pine on it. Super fresh and just fantastic. Expectations were obliterated as I tasted it—more of the same pine and grapefruit came to life on the palate, followed by a pleasing piney bitter finish. Wow.

Near perfect. Loads of citrus, pine, and hop goodness. Just tastes so delicious. Very drinkable.
I'm stunned this is not scored higher here. General Sherman comfortably hangs with the best IPA's from Port Brewing, Ballast Point, and Bear Republic.
For the price, it's hard to beat. Usually $6.99 at Savemart.
Be on the lookout for its big brother Double Sherman.

Pours a nice light straw color, very clear, with a small head. The smell is of faint hops with a bready, yeasty smell as well. Taste is similar, but less hops and more bread/yeast. Mouthfeel/carbonation fine. Perfectly good drinkin' beer, but nothing special.

I was on my way through Fresno on business, and I thought I'd try to find something new and local. I was presently surprised to find a 22 of this IPA at a local liquor store; honestly, my hopes were not up as Fresno is not particularly known for its beer. Pretty average on appearance and smell. Good hops, pine, and citrus on the nose, but pretty subdued. Flavor and mouth feel are great though. Tons of hops all around, lemon, caramel and malts. Mildly sweety with a hint of boozy warmth. Buttery smooth and full with good carbonation; it really costs your mouth. Overall, I am rather pleased with this beer, definitely something I would like to keep in my fridge.
