A: Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head that fades to a thick lace which lingers on the surface all the way down.
S: A bit of bready malt, and lots of citrusy and piney hops.
T: A bit of sweetness from the malt, then a big wallop of bitterness from the hops. Hop flavor is mostly pine, with a sampling of grapefruit and resin. Balanced, no. Delicious, yes.
M: Solidly middle of the road in body, it lingers a bit on the teeth and tongue. Carbonation is mild, but present.
D: I would love to drink several, but I can definitely see this one wiping out my palate halfway through the second bottle.
This is another solid offering from Sierra Nevada. I liked this year's Celebration a bit better, but this is an excellent year-round offering.
