Nevada

3.79/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12oz to a specialty ipa glass

Can see where all the yeast is caked on at the bottom :/ Pours a very pale gold, almost yellow towards the bottom with two fingers of foam. Cloudy, no visibility. Strong carbonation stemming from the center of the glass, really good retention, okay lacing

Smells has that signature sierra nevada hop aroma- strong resinous pine along with a bouquet of citrus including grapefruit and tangerine. Malts are pretty pale in compairison, wheat along with a strong blast of Belgian funk from the yeast

Taste is sort of with the nose. Hops are the same, grapefruit, citrus, and pine. The rest is a bit different, still pale wheaty malts with a bit of funk, but also a lot of spice I didn't pick up on the aroma

Feel is a light/medium body, a little bit of a wet finish. Moderate bitterness, alcohol hidden. Pretty drinkable

Overall not a bad beer, but probably ties nooner for my least favorite in the 4 way ipa pack

3.68/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

a - pale orangey gold with a thick white head

s - clean lemon and grapefruit

t - complex lemon flavors, woody, and light. Citrus linger. Good amount of hops, but doesn't ruin the Wit flavor or overpower it.

m - moderately full, nice coating in the mouth lingers

o - I really like this style, this is a very good American made Wit, and the hops make a great addition to the style. The flavors are refreshing and complex.
