A - nice rich amber color. Looks very inviting. Good light creamy head with a good amount of lacing. I gave the look a 5 because when I see the beer in a glass I can think of nothing else but how much I want to drink it!
S - smell is a nice balance of hops, pine, and citrus. The smell isn't as powerful as I thought it would. Has the classic Sierra nevada smell but with a little backbone to it.
T - the first rung to hit the taste buds is the citrus and pine, and followed up with the bitter hops. The malt keeps the hops from betting too bitter. The great thing about this beer is it has enough hops for the IPA lover, like myself, and enough balanced malts to keep non IPA drinkers reaching for a 12er or 6 pack, or even a bomber...that's another great thing about it. You can get the beer year round in whatever amount you prefer.
M- all Sierra Nevada beers have a more heavy/chewy mouth feel. When I preferred the lighter beers the Sierra Naveda beers were a little chewy for me. However, as my palate changed the mouth became a little less heavy. Medium among of carbonation which I prefer, not a big carbonation guy.
O- one of my favorite IPAs. It fits nicely between the standard IPA and the double IPA. You can't taste the booze and goes down smooth. Great balance of hops and malt, but heavier on the hops side for a great IPA. Priced well, good ABV, and easily available...thanks Sierra Nevada!

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.
