Poured this American IPA from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a clear copper color, produced a thick off white head, excellent retention and it left a very nice amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma of this ale contained large amounts of citrus. Medium bodied , this AIPA had a foundation of malted grain that was overpowered by bitter piney hops, and citrus )mostly grapefruit.)- there is also a slight hint of spice (white pepper) Excellent mouthfeel, very smooth- Semi dry finish. Excellent example of an American craft brewed AIPA, use of only American Hops and a special technique of dry hopping make this a great session beer.

3.85/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours with one finger thick white head off of tap, slight reddish/amber colored and very crisp and clear looking. Smaller sized bubbles in head.

Has slight citrus, floral, alcohol nose. Aroma is not overwhelming for the style.

Slightly thin mouth feel, with up front citrusy - pine bitterness to balance the ample amount of crystal malts. Finishes kind of dry and pretty bitter.

Has a nice after taste that sticks to the back of the throat. I think I'll have another.

Another classic (affordable) beer from Sierra Nevada Brewing.

Serving type: on-tap
