Wow, i've been on a Sierra Nevada fix lately.
A- Nearly white, one inch head sits on top of a glorious, pumpkin gut colored ale. Head dissipates rather quickly but leaves a fair amount of lacing. Slightly hazy body. Looks great.
S- Wow, interesting. Piney hops, sweet biscuits, brown sugar, its all in there. Just a hint of booze as well. The aroma packs a whallop.
T- This is a great tasting beer. As expected, its sweet with this almost cinnamon sugar toast flavor that pairs nicely with the fresh spicey, piney hops. Delicate bitterness dances on the tongue and leaves a brown sugar aftertaste. Little to no alcohol present.
M- Good body, pretty slick across the tongue. Moderate carbonation. Its a pretty typical mouthfeel for an IPA.
O-This is another great brew from SN. Unlike most of their mainliners, this one really packs a flavor punch. Loads of fresh, spicey hops and sweet caramel malt really give ya a solid sock in the mouth (in a good way). This is a real palette pleaser for IPA fans. Worth seeking out. I might even throw one in the cellar for 6 months.
