Another fine offering from Sierra Nevada. Picked up two bottles in a mix n match 6pack in Clemson, SC at Plez-U Food Store for $1.59
A: Pours a rich golden color that almost has amber highlights. The head is a solid 2 finger off-white head that leaves a very thick lacing along the glass

S: Hops, pine, citrus, and other earthy notes accompanied by a nice malty backing that produces a nice balanced nose

T: Awesome! Very hoppy notes, along with citrus, earth tones, and a nice caramel malt backbone that balances this beauty nicely...The hops are pretty resinous, typical Sierra Nevada

MF: A light/medium body that has a nice aftertaste to it. Leaves the lips a little sticky, as other APAs will...

D: High...I wish I picked up a 6 pack.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: 2.5 finger creamy head that hangs around for quite a while. Great lacing. Beautiful dark amber color.

Smell: Very creamy with hints of strong, bittering hops. Also some vanilla and citrus.

Taste: Very bitter in a great way. A lot of citrus and pine flavor. Absolutely delicious.

Mouthfeel: Great carbonation and a solid but not too heavy body.

Overall: An excellent beer with a very desirable, pleasant bitterness.
