4.4/5 rDev +6%
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

4.05/5 rDev -2.4%
Nice, thick head for such a high alcohol beer.
Aroma is a very powerful American hop type. Little bit of toasty malt in the background
Very powerful, hop forward flavor and bitterness. Hop flavor is piney and citrus. The hops dominate this beer so much that it is hard to pick up the malt, but there is some toastiness and caramel. Bitterness lasts quite a bit thru the finish.
Slick in the mouth and medium-heavy body. Medium carbonation.
I really liked the bitterness at first, but it wore on me as I continued to drink it. Wish there was a bit more malt flavor to this.
