Poured from a bottle into a pint glass, from a 12 pk. Could not find best by/born on date. This is my second time trying this beer. I did not like the beer the first time, so I held out on reviewing so I could give it another chance. I am glad I did.
The beer pours the typical clear amber color of an IPA, but maybe slightly darker than the norm. In the smell, I get a good mix of citrus and piney hops. Smells like a well-balanced IPA.
Plenty of hops as promised, but more of the piney bitter hops than the citrusy hops. Still a very drinkable above average IPA that is probably more hoppy than the average IPA too, and you can't beat the price that Sierra Nevada sells this for.

Poured from a 16 ounce can purchased at the local quick mart.
A: A very nice orange amber with good head and excellent retention.
S: Hoppy, citrus notes. Clean and somewhat floral.
T: Nice hop notes, not too awfully heavy on the citrus. Decent complexity.
M: Just about what I have come to expect from an IPA. Decent bite.
O: This is a solid ale and at 2$ a pint it's also a solid bargain.

a. Golden cooler with 1 finger of foam that lasts at shortly under a finder for the entire beer. The lacing is thick spectacular.
s. Smell is sweet bread, yeast, hops, a bit of citrus.
t. Smooth, rich, not as hoppy as I hoped considering it was an extra IPA. Although the smell had sweet proponents, the beer taste did not reflect this. Very good, but more ale than IPA to me.
m. Carbonation was near perfect.
o. This beer is outstanding at face value, so I gave it a 4.0. That being said the beer did not seem like a true IPA, which was reflected in the Taste score.
