After my unpleasant experience with Sierra Nevada's Bigfoot Ale, I've been reluctant to get back on their horse for quite a while. However, my friend the bartender :) and fellow BeerAdvocate suggested this and highly recommended it. Well, why not?
Pulled (by hand) a beautiful dark golden honey colored brew with a big, creamy, fluffy tan head and wonderful lace.
Smell is mostly hops with undefineable fruit, spices and malt all in the background. Well, an IPA is expected to be heavy on the hops.
Taste is, of course, hoppy with spice, malt, fruit, bread and alcohol also showing up for the party.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, very unexpected and welcomed. Warms the throat all the way down.
Drinkability is good. A nice brew especially on a cool Florida winters' night. All things considered, I'll be riding the Sierra Nevada horses a little more often now. I guess Bigfoot was just an ornery old mule.
Serving type: on-tap
