Since Sierra Nevada is one of my favorite brewers, I had to pick up a 4 Way IPA variety pack when I saw it sitting behind the cooler glass.

A: An orange-amber color, with a very nice white head with very decent lace.

S: A nice citrusy grass hops aroma that is very pleasing.

T: A very balanced citrusy-grassy hops flavor that has a subtle spiciness to it. Not too big, but very flavorful.

M: Medium carbonation, with a thin, almost lager or wheat beer feel to it, but still gives a nice bitter tang.

O: I'm very partial to Sierra and this was another winner for me. The brewers always know how to create something special. All the flavors and aromas I like, but in a session beer. Not overpowering, but still holds a lot of nice flavor. I could drink this all day.

Nice big smell of whole cone grapefruit hops and they smell herbal as well. I can always tell a beer brewed with whole cone hops as opposed to pellet hops. Very smooth up front with a bready malt and then evolving to the grapefruit herbal taste and has a nice herbal bitterness to finish.

The bitterness stays for a bit and for a 4.8 percent beer the mouthfeel is pretty damn good. Not too watery but you can tell its a lower alcohol beer. They had to make it a lighter malt beer to bring the hops out more but its not just all hops which makes it a better low alcohol IPA than a real bitter one that just covers up everything.

All around a great session beer that I buy if they made in 6 packs.
