Appearance: A vibrant gold with some glints of amber and a glorious white head. Superb lacing and carbonation streaming from the bottom of the sierra nevada tulip pint.
Smell: Fresh grassy, spicy and citrusy hops combined with sweet and bready malt. Some toastiness is noticeable as well, and maybe a little pine.
Taste: Much more piney spicy in the hop arena, but still has a citrusy backbone. The malt is nice and sweet like on the nose, but there is a toasty and slightly lager like character as well. Just supreme balance and freshness, very hard to be satisfied with one sip at a time.
Mouthfeel: Very crisp and smooth, the carbonation really opens the palate for the big flavors that follow.
Overall: This is one of americas great originals, and it is still top class today. As someone that appreciates originality, it is hard not to mention this as one of americas greatest beers. It balances flavor with drinkability like no other beer in the world. It is the quintessential pale ale, a true american brewing achievement.
