look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.75

24 oz. bottle poured into tulip
(7/9/14 born on date)

L: cloudy yellow-gold ... almost orange, no amber; thick, sticky 4/5-inch head of white foam that keeps a thick collar and decent skin of foam

S: very sweet citrusy ... seems like it wants to be caramel, but it's so bitter green hoppy that it's more like a candied orange; as it warms, the cloying sweet caramel shows up more

T: follows the nose but with a MASSIVE bitter bite ... it's so bitter, it's almost salty on top of the sweet citrus-orange-caramel taste

F: fantastic ... the beer feels very big but still light enough to be drinkable

O: it's better then the big caramel bomb DIPAs because it's bitter bite is fantastic with lots of green and citrus notes that knock back the cloying sweet flavors; the midrange ABV is also a big plus because while it's far from a session beer, you're also not playing with dynamite here. that's perfect because this thing is 100% drinkable ... no alcohol burn, no alcohol taste, light but bubbly full. good brew.

Poured into an IPA glass, this is a slightly hazy gold in color with a two-finger head that condenses to a dense, thin layer of foam that leaves plenty of lacing down the glass.
The aroma is dank with citrus and lemon behind.
The taste is citrus and pine and some dankness with some caramel mid-taste and a lingering piney bite at the end.
Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat sticky.
Another interesting and tasty single-hop IPA.

Pours a hazy light orange with a thick white head. Lots of carbonation. I love seeing lots of bubbles race towards the top. Smells fruity, citrus, a hint of orange, grapefruit. Taste packs much more of a punch than the nose. Mild pine, grapefruit, an excellent blend of sweet and bitter. This is a very crisp, drinkable IPA that still packs a ton of diverse flavors. I don't think I've ever had a beer brewed by Sierra Nevada that I didn't like. They continue to innovate and amaze.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, hazy, copper gold coloring with a fluffy, foamy, chunky, off-white head and a ton of carbonation bubbling throughout the body. Aromas of honey, tropical fruits, pepper spice, subtle resin, and moss. Well balanced aromas. Flavors are roasted forward, with a tangy caramel backbone, peppery spiced and very resinous hops characteristic. Tangy and tart citrus and tropical fruit profile, and it's so strong that the tart feel lasts well into the aftertaste. Light, smooth bodied, with a grassy, mossy, and citrus aftertaste. The finish is smooth, slightly dry, and slightly effervesced.
