Bottled on 2/4/14. 24oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a glowing golden with a subtle haze; huge fluffy white head that sticks around and leaves awesome lacing and retention. This beer looks great, just like all of Sierra Nevada's beers. The aromas are very bready. Lots of cracker and malts. Some hints of grass too. Slightly floral. The flavors are extremely earthy. More fresh cut grass. Some pine notes. The hop bitterness is spot on, but there's really not much hop flavor going on. I can definitely notice that they used whole-cone hops, which Sierra Nevada likes to do. More crackers and fresh bread. Subtle hints of grapefruit and orange peel. Alcohol goes unnoticed. The mouthfeel is nice. It started off thin, but the more I drink the more the carbonation comes alive. It also gains a nice creamy fluffiness to it, which adds to the experience.
This is well crafted for sure, just like most Sierra Nevada beers, but I suppose this one just isn't for me. I enjoyed my time with it, but it's not something I'll be dreaming about or craving again. It's very similar to alot of Sierra Nevada beers, in my opinion. I feel like I've had this beer from them a bunch of times.
