Last Friday while having a Goose Island IPA in the Porterhouse the unique pale green color of the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale bottle label caught my eye. It was on a beer mat, littered on all the tables and bar-tops. I thought it a little strange but continued drinking, understanding that fate had played a part in deciding the next round.
And at the bar I got a great surprise! The barman told me that they had got SNPA on draught just the day before and that it was going down a treat. At €5.20 a pint I quickly ordered 4, almost downing my own before bringing the others to my table.
What a pint! Slightly less potent in aroma and taste than the bottle, its still sweet and hoppy on the tongue with a light malt aftertaste. Beautiful...
I prefer Goose Island IPA, SNPA and their IPA is nice but it dose not have the cascade aroma of Goose Island. But also nice to see it on draft over here and I will have a pint next time I am in the porter house
