12oz bottle, 2007 vintage (updated with a 2009 vintage that is the same as the 07 as far as I can tell).
Dark golden/orange color with a tan head of about an inch and half. Great lacing and head retention.
The aroma is full of hops, with bitterness and a ton of citrus to back it up. There is a slight, sweet malt flavor, but it is basically lost with all of the hops.
This is a beer I look forward to every year, and it is a testament to the great things that Sierra Nevada does with hops at an affordable price. Tons of hops dominate the flavor. Orange peel, grapefuit, some bitterness, and a bunch of grassy hop flavor. There is just a touch of sweet malt underneath those hops, but the hops star here, making a great IPA.
Thin body with high carbonation; surprisingly a bit dry for an ipa, but good anyway.
Great beer; I could drink this all night. Considering the price, this beer cannot be beaten.
