This Beer is excellent. It proves that you do NOT have to have Big ABV to have and Excellent IPA.
The Smell .. sublime.. Fruity/Citrus overtones, crisp and bittersweet ( more Sweet than Bitter)... The colour is gold and orange, the head is full and lacing is muted but not understated. I LOVE Sierra Nevada and this entry from a graft pack is a perfect match with the Torpedo Anchor!! Can't wait to taste the rest.. Ok.. Don't mind if I do, BA!

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "PKGD 6/25/14".

APPEARANCE: pours a somewhat hazy copper color with some visible sediments floating about, 1 finger off-white head with good retention and medium carbonation, the head eventually dissipated into a thin unbroken layer of bubbles with a good amount of lacing on the glass.

SMELL: bread, pine, citrus, there is a floral aroma present as well.

TASTE: initially caramel sweet malts and grapefruit then a pleasant piney hop blast that lingered in a good way, the 4.8% ABV is imperceptible.

PALATE: creamy with medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: This is a nice traditional IPA. Sierra Nevada is a top notch brewer and I would not hesitate to buy this again.
