3.68/5 rDev -11.3%
Pours ruby with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows a fair whack of hops, with lots of pine and grapefruit, but also shows a lot of sweet caramel and crystal malt.
Hops dominate the flavours, lots more pine and grapefruit along with an abrasive bitterness that annihilates everything else. There's a bit of clean malt underneath but not exactly prominent. Alcohol is fairly noticeable too.
Carbonation is too high for this type of beer.

355ml bottle served in a mug.
A: Pours a deep clear amber color firming a medium yellow creamy head. Good retention and tons of lacings formed and left in the glass
S: Delicious combination of toffee, caramel malts and American flowery hops. Biscuity
T: Sweet upfront. Toffee, caramel, caramel malts. Dark fruit esters. Biscuity. Flowery citrus hops. Excellent bittersweet balance. Molasses. Practically no alcohol sensation despite of the considerable ABV
M: Heavy creamy body. Good carbonation for the style. Sweet upfront and strong bitter aftertaste
O: Excellent drinkability. Just one more quality Sierra Nevada beet
