Equinox hops work here in some instances, and against in others. Some yellow grapefruit, some soap, ours out golden with small creamy head and clumpy lacing. Aroma is light, citrusy grapefruit, taste is more of the hops and some soapiness. Similar to a pale ale with the lighter hops.

More lager taste than an ipa. Had really high hopes given the ratings I reviewed ahead of the purchase. Just doesn't seem to live up to the hype in my opinion.

Review taken late summer 2014.

24oz Fat Brown Sierra Nevada style bomber with their new Harvest artwork which I'm not a huge fan of as I loved the previous harvest labels. Poured into an imperial tulip pint glass.

A - bronze color with hints of dark golden orange. Frothy white head poured with incredible size leaving a ring of sticky lacing all over the glass.

S - earthy hops and slightly woody. Mild citrus and fruity with a base of floral sweetness and fresh green bell pepper.

T - floral hops up front that quickly shifted to more tropical and citrusy hop notes. The bell pepper not is pronounced even on the flavor the more this one warms. A lightly toasted bread malt with hints of cedar and pine balance very well in the back end.

M - medium bodied and a mellow texture. Thickness is still fairly good and it drinks very soft. Nothing over powering or massive. Just a good drinkable feel.

O - Sierra Nevada's single hop equinox is a nice offering and though it's nothing truly special it's a fantastic ipa to pour on a warm late summer evening as my experience was. I've always been able to really take in SN brews and enjoy the view of my nearby surroundings and this is by no means a bad bottling. I found it very enjoyable.

Idk if I got an old one??? I don't see how that could be tho.. This beer smells like milwaukeees best and has basically no hops flavor. Don't waste ur money. I don't even want to finish the bottle.
