12 oz SN style brown bottles poured into a Sierra Nevada Hop Tulip imperial Pint glass.
A - copper in color. Bright and clear. Pours a thick off white head. Creamy head and sticky lace are fantastic.
S - pine like hop aroma. Grapefruit is dominate and tops off the citrusy smells of lemon and other citrus notes. A hint of grassy hops with a touch of pepper as the whiff continues.
T - fruity and citrusy notes of grapefruit, crisp apples, and a little bit of lemon. Lovely pine notes up front and linger around the rest of the way. This ipa is very well balanced in taste and full of different flavors. A hint of pepper or maybe even some sort of spice in the background of this brew. The hoppy flavors are there from the start and continue quite nicely to the finish when a perfect touch of bitterness creeps in.
M - upper medium to full body. Very well carbonated and drinkable even at 7.2%. this beer was pleasantly smooth, crisp, and clean in the mouth.
O - Sierra Nevada are very underrated in this day and age, and I'm not sure why. They should be a lot higher in the top 100 rankings ive seen. This brewery just keeps pumping out quality and class in a variety of styles. This is one of the best Am IPAs I've ever had anywhere. Has a great look, fabulous aroma, a variety of flavor, and is drinkable. What more could anyone want from a craft ipa? This is an amazing IPA from a world class outfit at Sierra Nevada.
