Appearance: Light golden yellow, good white head, leaves good lacing

Smell: Herbal, citrus, and floral hops, a nice bouquet

Taste: A nice, not too bitter hop profile that includes herbal, citrus, and floral hops. Bready malts. Nice balance for a session IPA

Mouthfeel: Light body, good carbonation

Overall: Pretty good overall, would gladly pick up more

Consumed 4/22/14

Appearance: Clear, deep gold with some shades of light copper/burnt orange - pours with a medium-sized, off-white head - keeps a solid cap, leaves some impressive lacing

Smell: Pale, bready, grainy malts, and some floral citrus - light and delicate, but also more of a rounded aroma compared to some other "session" IPAs - some nice orange and tangerine flesh, with a touch of citrus rind and some floral grapefruit - lightly sweet bread, with some pale malts, pale grains - overall smells more like a variant on Sierra Nevada Pale Ale than one of their IPAs, very mild

Taste: Lightly bready with a nice array of citrus - tangerine, orange, and grapefruit flavors - some citrus flesh and a touch of pith - lightly herbal, lightly leafy, with floral notes - more like an APA than an IPA, but whatever - nice amount of malt flavor, with some light bread, light grains, and some almost honey-like sweetness - extremely clean and drinkable

Mouthfeel: Somewhere between light and medium bodied, nicely smooth, clean, dry finish

Overall: More incentive to get up by noon?

It should come as no surprise that Sierra Nevada can make a drinkable beer, but I am slightly surprised at how well this beer works. This is decidedly better than some session IPAs that have a ton of aroma but taste oddly hollow. I would actually buy this again if possible.
