Sierra Nevada 30 #4 Our Brewers Reserve

Here is what the Brewer Says: 
Brewers Reserve is a special ale highlighting our pioneering history and the innovative spirit that has carried us through all these years. It is a marriage of our three most acclaimed ales: Oak-aged Bigfoot, Celebration Ale, and fresh Pale Ale blended together and generously dry-hopped. Come join us in celebrating thirty years with this most special brew. Drink it now, or save it for a future anniversary of your own.
9.2%ABV 70IBU 

My Thoughts: This beer poured a dark brown with just a hint of red that you can see faintly in the picture.  The smell was sweet and full of piney hops.  The taste was every bit as good as the smell, if not even better.  The dark heavier bodied beer drank lighter that what I thought it would.  Carbonation was mild and it perfectly suited the hoppy nature this beer has.  I got a lot of pine and citrus hops that went perfectly with its sweeter, but not too sweet side.   The malt flavor profile was more of the roasted and oak flavors.   I was not expecting to love it as much as I did, but this beer really blew me away with its complex flavors and amazing drinkability.  If you are a hophead the 70ibu is very accurate and will leave you with a smile on your face!  If you find a bottle of this do not hesitate to pick couple of them up....they will age well over time!
