Appearance 4.0: Poured out a beautiful deep golden color with a nice 1/4" head. Beer is completely opaque, which is a nice change of pace.
Smell 4.0: Lovely bouquet with a great balance of caramel malt notes and grapefruit, pine and rosin smells from the hops.
Taste 4.0: Front is slightly bitter and slightly sweet. Middle is tangy and smooth with a hint of barley and a mid-palete kick of hop alkalinity but little hop taste. Finish is where the hop tastes hit me: pine, citrus, chlorophyll...nice. Aftertaste was long and featured more of the lovely hop notes battling it out for dominance.
Mouthfeel 3.5: Good, but slightly off for me. It does not take away from the session, but does not completely match the other outstanding characteristics of this brew.
Overall 4.0: Great IPA. Very smooth, very warm and inviting and entirely sessionable. This baby has a big kick from its 7.0 ABV, but it is entirely unnoticeable, so be aware. This is an IPA that is focused on maybe one or two hops and the folks at Sierra Nevada have done an excellent job of melding everything together into one delicious brew. Kudos to them.

So. Many. Hops. Yowza. Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Nice fluffy white head. Smells is incredible. Pine, hops, citrus but mainly HOPS. After having a couple other brews in this style, I can conclude that for me personally, it doesnt get much better then this. No sugary, syrupy mouthfeel or aftertaste just bitter, upfront hops balanced by some citrus. If you like IPAs please please do yourself a favor and try this brew, outstanding.
