This review is for the 2014 edition of this ale.

This "100-day IPA" is only 60 days old, so I'd expect a relatively fresh hop IPA. Pours a rich, semi-cloudy amber, with a huge head of tan bubbles. Huge spiderweb of frilly lace. Exquisite!

Nose is lovely floral and citrus hops. This is going to be good. Anticipation is high.

Taste is bitter hops --a tinge of sweetness with the malts, but overall, this is a strong grapefruit hops presence. Somehow, last year's seemed better, and more tropical.

Nonetheless, this is solid and enjoyable IPA, and I'm always curious to taste what Sierra Nevada is doing next.

8/12....pours very dark, amber, thick clingy foam on top. Floral pine nose. Very pleasant. Smooth spicy hop flavor. Strong malt profile. Fresh grassy taste. Bitter holds but in a flavorful way. Really solid IPA.

a. An orange/light brown color that is not cloudy, and is not transparent. A solid 2 finger head when poured into a tulip glass. Head dissipates to leave a floating thin layer of foam that offers good lacing.

s. Hops, some fruit, some earth notes

t. Earthy sweet on the front and quite hoppy on the back.

m. Good mouthfeel. Good carbonation.

o. Another outstanding offering from SN.
