This is a piney hop forest in a bottle. I anticipate its return next year already.
A- Deep red color, unfiltered, great head and good lacing.
S- As I said, piney hop forest. Wonderful. Magical, even.
T-This bottle cant be that fresh, and yet it tastes amazing still. I get pine, citrus, floral, earthy... its all there. The malt sits nicely in the middle somewhere. I wouldnt call it balanced, but its there. I would absolutely LOVE this on tap. It brings me back to my roots in craft beer, this is one of the first real ales I ever had. It is well designed. There is just something about a "fresh hop" ale. I havent ever brewed a fresh hop ale yet, but I see it on the horizon... Sierra Nevada has never disappointed me. I look forward to each burp lol.
M- This is such an easy drinking brew, so smooth. I would like it to be just a touch thicker, but thats just my opinion.
Overall, this is a solid and fantastic beer. I hope that someday I can brew something that matches the caliber of this masterpiece. If you dig hops like me, and you havent had this beer, then you need to try it. Its only 8 bucks for a 6er where I live and it cannot be beat(unless you grab Torpedo at the same price :)
