So I guess this beer is like in between SNPA and Celebration, well it's not as hoppy as either but it is still a very tasty and well balanced IPA.
A: A brilliant reddish copper like a shiny new penny, a two fingered off white head that leaves loads of sticky lacing, this a really beautiful beer
S: very subtle nose on this one which is surprising considering it's siblings, a good balance of citrusy hops and sweet malt but not nearly as hoppy in the nose as in any of the other SN beers
T: Delicious! the bitterness is not a kick in the balls like most American IPAs these days but there is alot of hop flavor, grapefruits, oranges, and alot of sweet caramel on the front, finishes semi dry with some aspriny bitterness... the only thing extreme about this beer is it's balance
M: very creamy yet kind of thin with a tickle of carbonation
D: very drinkable as the alcohol is well hidden, here's another gem from Sierra Nevada reminding us that theres a reason why these guys really know what they're doing.

12 oz brown bottle with pry-off cap poured into 8oz Saint Arnold tour glass.
Appearance: Pours a golden amber with a very faint haze. two fingers of head with a great lace down the glass that is characteristic of Sierra Nevada's beers
Smell: Hops upfront; piney and earthy
Taste: Hop bitterness that crescendos into a great piney hop flavor with a slight resin finish. There is a good malt backbone but is overshadowed in the hop flavor
Mouthfeel: full flavored and medium carbonation
Overall: This is a very solid IPA with a hop flavor profile that I really like. Its full of flavor but not too extreme. Overall can be considered a more intense version of the signature pale ale that really showcases the torpedo hopping device.
