This is my go-to beer where I live. A twelve pack for under fifteen bucks? Sign me up. Not an absolute stunner, but a great entry beer available at a lot of places at a reasonable price. The only major problem is getting it fresh enough to truly enjoy it.

355 ml bottle. Its foam left some lacing. Resinous and caramel notes really well intermixed. Lots of earthy and some fresh grassy hops on nose. Booze notes when warmer. Full body.

Thick, hazy oeachy appearance. Two inches of lasting foam. Flowery and sweet aroma. Sweet peachy taste, some bitterness, you can tell this is a high alcohol beer, but the boozy flavor is not overpowering. Nice, think mouth feel. This is a good sipping beer

A good Sierra product, used to be more biting. They apparently softened some of the hops, and may have added some extra malt or other sweetener. An improvement, but prefer some of the East Coast products.

Nice crisp slightly bitter IPA, enjoyable but not particularly amazing. Pours a nice lighter amber color with a little head and spotty lingering lacing. Smells a little more faintly of some nice citrus zest hops and some weaker floral hops. Tastes similarly, along with some malt, caramel, piney hops and bread. Smooth thin mouthfeel, good carbonation. Again, nice and easy to drink, just not particularly memorable. Certainly, I was expecting something “extra” and this beer just never delivered.

Not much happening with this one. Boring and more beery/bitter than a good IPA.

Hoppy, easy to drink beer. Pine scent with citrus hint. Quite fragrant hoppy scent. Light body with the right amount of bitterness. Good beer.
