One of the best beers I've tried in a while. Thoroughly enjoyable in pushing the hop envelope while maintaining an amazing balance and drinkability. This beer simply tastes great without overwhelming the senses or coming across as some clumsy attempt at "extremeness." It smells, tastes, and drinks like a great beer should. Can't say enough, really. This is especially true as I bought a sixer at the amazing sale price of $7 at the local Stater Bros. I sound like an advertiser for Sierra Nevada in the review but don't mean to. I'm just happy to have a widely available beer of this caliber.

4.29/5 rDev +3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Rich cooper color, clear. A creamy beige two finger head when poured; dies down relatively fast leaving an thin uneven coating of foam on the surface of the beer and lots of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell: Slightly sweet and citrusy. Mild aroma of malt. Smooth hops. An extremely slight pine scent. Nice and enticing.
Taste: Citrus (grapefruit. lemon) without being acidic. Delicious mild hoppy flavor for the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light body. Lots of mild carbonation. Ever so slight dry finish.
Overall: An excellent IPA. I would gladly drink this again. The perfect amount of hops with a delicious flavor. Refreshing.

4.04/5 rDev -2.9%

12 oz from a $10 12 poured into a tulip glass. Born on 6/9/14
A - Ruby red with orange highlights, one finger head that recedes to thick lace ring.
S - Floral, grapefruit/citrus, biscuit
T - More of the same. Very flowery with moderate citrus, and a dry, bitter finish.
M - Perfect level of carbonation. The overall feel is a tad thin, but keeps it refreshing to balance the dry finish.
O - I had this a few months ago out of mix pack and was mildly dissapointed ( the 12 pack was 4-5 months and apparently was stored upside down). This was more in line with what I remembered. A good go to IPA that is a great value (esp at 10 fer 12)
