Seems like a promising beer from Sierra Nevada, had quite a few good beers from them. Only thing I don't really like IPA's, so lets see how this turns out. Served in a pint.
A: pours a copper hazy copper color, had a 2 inch soapy off white head that dissipated to a thin remnant head with lots of thick lacing.
S: Whew, lots of hops in here, spices too, wheat, barley as well
T: Begins with crispness of wheat, malts, spices, cinnamon, with a large backlash of hops, fortunately I've had "better" IPA's with excruciating amounts of hops so this was not overly offensive to me. It was quite alright.
M: good amounts of combination, well paired with the flavor, bit unbalanced with the hops in my opinion but that's just normal for a high quality IPA.
O: Well, IPA's are not my cup of tea but this was pretty good, a testament to Sierra Nevada's dedication to quality and satisfaction. I enjoyed everything about the taste except the hop after kick at the end, but everyone should have a go at it. I also found it to be much less expensive than I imagined, but it's probably just the place I bought it from.
