Single bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, enjoyed on IPA Day.
Poured into a nonic. Deep amber-caramel in colour, with a half inch of sticky head which leaves some lovely icicles of lace. Great retention on this - quality looking brew.
Nose is citrus (orange and grapefruit), pine, earthy hops, a herbal quality and lots of malt.
Tasty IPA that offers some different flavors to explore. There is a bitter earthy grain to the finish, a sweet citrussy opening, and lots of herbal hoppage in the middle. Generously hopped, to say the least.
Medium bodied, nice assertive carbonation, a bit sticky.
Great IPA, this. Probably my favorite every day Sierra Nevada brew. Big hopped IPA with lots going for it.

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.
Serving type: can
