Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Poured too strong the first time and ended up with a 3 inch head. Grabbed a second bottle and maybe poured a little light, didn't end up with much head, but what was there was nice and sticky with little bubbles coming up to support.
Nice coppery color and strong scent of pine, typical of Sierra Nevada. Not my favorite hop variety, but what is there is very strong in the nose.
Solid flavor that matches the hop aroma, especially on the back end. Much more muted and balanced than I expected, based on the aroma. A hint of secondary bitterness late in the back that I don't care for. Mouth feel is about right for an IPA.
Overall a good beer. I prefer the Stone ales to the Sierra Nevada's given the hops used, but this is one of the better SN offerings I have had.
