Appearance - The beer, poured into a snifter, was a deep copper color. It possessed a nice white fluffy head that left lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell - I smell hops. The aroma leans on the grassier side of hops, but there is some degree of citrus. There is also a hint of earthiness to the aroma.
Taste - In the initial taste, I sense sweet malt, caramel, and perhaps a hint of cinnamon. Then the hops take over. The grassy, citrus hops begin the burn of hop assault that warms the back of the throat almost instantaneously. To a modest degree, candy-like sweetness carries throughout the taste.
Mouthfeel - The staying power on this one is pretty special. The thickness allows a lingering of the tongue bruising hops. Nicely done.
Overall - This might be my favorite offering from Sierra Nevada. It is well balanced, and has nuisance that go beyond being a hop bomb.
