This is the best beer for the buck. Beautiful amber color, great head retention. Nice sticky lacing. Smell is outstanding. Almost instantaneously I get a kick in the face of hop aroma ask I crack the bottle open. I get pine, citrus, flowers,- a field of hops in my nose. I can also smell malt, I dont know how they accomplished that, but its there and its great. Mouthfeel is great, not too thin, not too thick, although for the ABV I would almost expect it to be thicker. Everything about this beer is awesome, its easy drinking, alcohol is non existent in the taste. Its well balanced for an "extra" IPA, the malt really shines and I love that about it. Sierra Nevada out did themselves with this one. My go-to brew for sure. I love this beer.

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%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
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)
