Beautiful coppery amber shade when poured into pint glass. Terrific head, about a half inch, that stays forever. There's still some left as I finish the beer. Big citrus, herbal, pine/spruce hop aroma in the nose. Very Sierra Nevada, which is good.
There is an understated malt and grain flavor to this, but its only apparent once the initial mouthful of hoppiness subsides. Pretty much what you'd expect from the aroma, there's spice, citrus, a bitter bite, and spruce. Just a terrific beer all around, one of the best non hop-bomb IPAs there is.
Mouthfeel is good, smooth, nice texture, its a definite plus. Drinkability is excellent. I probably drink more of this than any other Winter seasonal beer, and look forward to it every year.
