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

Smooth and citrusy, without the outrageous hop bitterness some of the IPAs possess. Amber with average off white head, light hop aroma, taste is hops, but not so much as to impede the malts from coming through. Very well done.

Dark copper pour with 2 finger foamy head.

Smelled of decent piney hops. Small amount of malts

Average piney-hop taste. Malt flavors do not come through very well.

medium bodied, with mild carbonation.

Not an offering from Sierra Nevada that I would drink again.

Bottled. Floral hop smell at opening but loses aroma in glass. Finger and a half of head that doesn't disapate. Amber and clear in color. Mild bitter in taste and hop bite sticks to the tongue. Carmel hit on the front end and rounded hop and malt taste in the back end. Nice beer

Shows packaged end of April, so it's already past the 100 days. Doesn't seem too far fallen off. Very foamy and carbonated, dark brownish orange. Not a ton on the nose, so maybe that's where it's missing something. It's got a nice hoppy taste, little bitterness, slight malt. Enjoy the mouthfeel more than the actual taste. Not bad beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Color: Deep copper color; transparent. Lots of small bubbles upon close inspection. GIGANTIC tan head (4-5 fingers) that dies down very slowly leaving an uneven layer of foam on the surface of the beer and large quantities of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Mild malty and hoppy aroma. Nothing special. Like a good commercial beer.

Taste: Similar to how it smells. Mild malty, grain flavor to start with a mild hoppy finish and a slight bitter bite at the end. Decent.

Feel: On the lighter-side of medium body; very slight dry finish.

Overall: A decent IPA; milder flavor, refreshing and not too hoppy. I had this with pizza and it complemented it well. There are many better beers, but this was a better than average drinking IPA that was not over-the-top in price.
