Poured into a pint glass and it comes out a very rich and deep bronze color with a full finger+ head. Leaves rings of lace after each sip.

The aroma makes your mouth water. You can pick out the different hops used and the citrus and pine aroma hits your nose hard. This has been the best smelling beer I've had in a while.

Upon drinking you get the rich full flavor of complex bittersweet hops that stays with you for a while.

Mouthfeel is right just enough carbonation.

Overall its worthy as a special treat beer when you want something to sip on that has full flavor nad a hard hoppy bitterness. Sierra Nevada accomplished what they were after with this one.
