Pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Smell is mostly of pine and citrus, your usual West Coast IPA flavors. Taste is mostly of pine as well with a good amount of bitterness that lingers for a while. A bit underwhelming when it comes to flavor though. I wish there were more citrus and floral notes in there, but the flavor seems to pass pretty quickly. Mouth is smooth, maybe a bit too heavy, but with just the right amount of carbonation. Overall this is a pretty good IPA, but nowhere near the best I've had. I've always been slightly disappointed with Sierra Nevada's offerings, and this isn't an exception. I always find myself comparing different IPAs to Stone's and this is one that just doesn't come close. The balance seems slightly off compared to other IPAs I've tried, most notably Green Flash Imperial IPA, Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, and of course Stone IPA.

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.
