Bottle poured into Sierra Nevada pint glass

A: Pours lightly hazy deep golden amber with a frothy off white head that laces very nicely.

S: Citrus and pine hops, light floral notes, followed by light sweet malt.

T: Big pine and citrus hops, some orange and grapefruit, some very light pineapple, a bit spicy, with sweet bready/biscuit malt behind it.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: This bottle isn't as strong as I remember this brew being. I think I'm gonna have to retry this one. For now though, not bad.

Edit: Retried out of a 16oz can into a Sierra Nevada pint glass

This is more like it. Pretty strong pine and citrus throughout with some spiciness, though not as bitter on the finish as I recall from earlier times drinking this, in a good way. Big bold APA for hop heads.
