Reviewed a growler not too long ago. Looking forward to seeing how this bottle review compares for one of my favorite seasonal beers...
A: 12 oz bottle poured into a shaped pint glass... slightly dusty, light amber / red with a massive 3.5 finger, off-white, milkshake-esque head (classic Sierra Nevada) that leaves light sheets / rings of lace.
S: Grapefruit and pungent citrus hops; maybe a hint of pine; some herby hops, too; caramel and light biscuit malts. Smells great!
T: Full flavored IPA... big time grapefruit bitterness with some pine; caramel malt sweetness and some scant hints of alcohol.
M: Full-bodied and creamy; near crushingly bitter on the palate; leaves you almost parched.
D: Such an enjoyable beer - very well rounded... looks good in the glass, has a great aroma and taste with an impressive mouthfeel. The parching effect on the palate, in the Drinkability department, is the only drawback.
