According to the Sierra Nevada bottle date decoder (pretty cool) this was bottled on Oct 13th, line 1 at 9:13 AM. Almost two months, and the first I see of it in the Utah system. Woohoo, Utah, wer'e number 1! /sarc
Poured into my perfect pint. Huge smells coming off of this one even before I stick my nose in it.
Appearance: Glorious billowy, three finger off white head on top of a slightly hazy amber liquid. Very nice! Lace all the way down.
Smell: Huge pine and citrus hop smells. I am sure there are malts in there, but the hops kind of rule here.
Taste: A nice charge of bitterness really takes hold of the tongue with pine and orange flavors. I am having a hard time picking out the malt, but I can "feel" it back there.
Mouthfeel: No problems. Carbonation is smooth and middling, while the body is rich and almost thick. Flavors coat the mouth easily and do not let up during the long finish.
Overall: A perfect mix of good looks, and wonderful taste that I am happy to see return, if a little late, each year.
Serving type: bottle
