Pours a beautiful dark amber color with a rich creamy head. Floral hops dominate the smell but the flavor is a great balance between hops, malt and some coffee in the finish. The carbonation and mouth feel as superb. Overall a great beer.

A - Very Dark, almost the colour of a moonless night sky. A nice 2 inch head of dusty brown, teasing carbonation, sending little rays of golden brown bubble to the top.

S - smell is excellent, nice juniper sweetness, a touch coffee and Cream. Pleasant to the nose a slight tinge of cocoa

T - Excellent IPA taste as I'm finding with most of Sierra Nevada's IPA

M - nice carbonation, slightly dry, body is dense but delicate.
O - This is a classic and I've Never been a big fan of Darker beers. Though I've been noticing that they are becoming a treat to experience and savour. Excellent Entry!!!
