Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed to celebrate 27 years of the pioneering of the craft beer movement, this beer is an American Style IPA with a distinct Sierra Nevada twist; a generous amount of Cascade hops to produce a big fragrant pine and citrus hop aroma, which is balanced by the sweetness of two row pale and caramel malt, and finished with additional Cascade dry-hopping for good measure. Anniversary Ale is a medium-bodied, well-hopped ale that finishes with a slight malt sweetness. Released August 2007, 2008, and 2009; same beer.

Ha wore my tshirt of this the other day, might as well log one of those retired reviews from yesteryear.

This one was one of the lighter ipas Sierra Nevada has been involved in. Lighter than the pale ale, instead of an amber color like SNPA, this was a lighter yellow affair. Still has nice 1" carbonation and whatnot. The nose wasn't huge as I think they still just used Cascade for the minimal by our standards today dry hopping.

Taste still reveals caramel, but not as much as some of their other hoppy offerings. Very drinkable throughout, its pretty standard stuff for them. Moderate bitterness, lots of C hops in the boil, some after that, good dry toasted pale malt base, grassy effects.
