Poured into a pint glass.
Amber with 2-3 fingers of fluffy loose head. Good retention. Excellent clarity and moderate carbonation.
Tangerine, candied orange, lemon zest, grapefruit pith, pineapple and candy sugar.
Sugar coated tangerines, navel orange, lemon juice, grapefruit pith and pineapple. Very light caramel backing with an abundance of candy sugars. Finishes with grapefruit rind and sticky pine needles.
Medium bodied, crisp, juicy, bitter and dry.
This is easily my favorite Fresh Hop/Wet Hop/Harvest Hop/Hip Hop/Flip Flop Ale of the season. It's got EVERYTHING going for it.
Poured into a Sierra Nevada pint glass.
A: Pours a beautiful amber with 2 fingers of fluffy head that dissipates slowly leaving behind thick lacing. Good clarity and low carbonation.
N: Crisp caramel, lemon, orange, pine and a hint of florals. Smells eerily similar to SN Pale Ale...
T: Grapefruit, lemon, navel orange, florals and rich caramel. Finishes with spicy pine, leafy hops, grass and lemon zest.
M: Medium-full bodied, creamy, smooth, slightly chewy, a little sticky, bitter and dry.
O: This is pretty much a fresher, cleaner, more bitter SN Pale Ale. Which is definitely a good thing in my opinion. An amazing Fresh Hop American IPA!
