look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

It pours copper with frothy white head. Smell is hops and a subtle earthiness. Flavor is fresh, floral hops with a clean, not too bitter finish. Honestly, this reminds me why Sierra Nevada was the first craft beer (no etymology wars please :) ) I tried and liked. And it reminds me, although I am a die-hard Belgian ale fan, I was first a fan of IPA's. Mouthfeel is light and soft. Overall, this is a really nice, really approachable version of the style.
