No bottled on date.
Appearance: Pours a gorgeous burnt copper color. Semi-clear with a frothy, creamy head that stays there, and lacing until the beer is gone. The lacing will be dried on tomorrow morning. I know because it happened.
Smell: Piney, grapefruity, hoppy goodness. It has a stronger scent than most other brews I've had.
Taste: Man, these hops are great. The beer is a double IPA, so it's obviously got the bitter hoppiness aspect, but there's a discernible malt presence as well that balances it out perfectly. It has a bit of piney taste, as well as a faint grapefruit hint. No, I promise I wasn't just paraphrasing the label. A rare instance of truth in advertising... Refreshing!
Mouthfeel: The medium body on this one gives way to a little bit of an oily finish, which isn't offensive.
Overall: I may be a new fanboy of Sierra Nevada. This beer kicks ASS. This will be a staple in my fridge when I get to a point in life where I can afford to have nice beers as a staple in my fridge. Killer DIPA. GET ONE! (Get six.) If I could give it an overall of "4.75," I would.

Good sh*t. This is beer. It is a good beer. It is cheap, it is drinkable and this beer will get you drunk. My girlfriend had wine, I had this beer. I had others but this is the beer I liked most. I will order this beer again. It was a bit strong for my 8 year old, so we mixed it with soda water.
Serving type: on-tap
