I like where Sierra is going. The Kellerwies was decent, I'm anxious to try the Glissade. and then there's Torpedo.
Beautiful clear copper color, with hefty head that shrinks but never goes away and provides sticky lacing throughout the pint.
Aroma is all piney notes, but not too strong. Quite drinkable for a "extra" IPA. Hops are sharp upfront, a bit sweet in the back.
Naturally, it paired quite well with pre-Super Bowl NYS sharp cheddar cheese and crackers.
Serving type: bottle

Poured from a 16 ounce can purchased at the local quick mart.
A: A very nice orange amber with good head and excellent retention.
S: Hoppy, citrus notes. Clean and somewhat floral.
T: Nice hop notes, not too awfully heavy on the citrus. Decent complexity.
M: Just about what I have come to expect from an IPA. Decent bite.
O: This is a solid ale and at 2$ a pint it's also a solid bargain.

a. Golden cooler with 1 finger of foam that lasts at shortly under a finder for the entire beer. The lacing is thick spectacular.
s. Smell is sweet bread, yeast, hops, a bit of citrus.
t. Smooth, rich, not as hoppy as I hoped considering it was an extra IPA. Although the smell had sweet proponents, the beer taste did not reflect this. Very good, but more ale than IPA to me.
m. Carbonation was near perfect.
o. This beer is outstanding at face value, so I gave it a 4.0. That being said the beer did not seem like a true IPA, which was reflected in the Taste score.
