12oz. bottled poured into a pint.

A: Almost picture perfect appearance. Golden orange and crystal clear. About an inch of head that lasted a minute. Great lacing and retention.

S: The aroma is it's weakest point and that itself is still really good. I would like this to have a little more of a floral aroma, however it has more biscuit aroma. The aromas are very subtle.

T: If someone asked me "what does an APA taste like?" I would hand them a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Perfectly balanced. It has a great hop pallet. Bitter and smooth at the same time.

M: Medium mouthfeel. Has great carbonation and is very crisp.

D: This is an excellent beer to keep in your refrigerator. It will never let you down. I could and have put back a few of these in one session.

I'm finishing this review so I can start on my second Sierra Nevada. Cheers!
