Poured into a pint glass. Pours deep golden with an abundant eggshell colored head that retains well. The retreating head leaves plenty of sticky lacing on the side of the glass. Toasted malt and citrus and piney hops dominate the smell. It's a very pleasing aroma. The slightly sweet malt flavor hits the tastebuds up front as does the creamy head. Coming in on the back end are the citrus and piney hop bitterness that help balance this beer's flavor. The ABV is at 7.2%, but the alcohol does not come out at all in the taste. This is very well balanced and very delicious. The sweet and bitter balance only improves as it warms up. This is a medium bodied beer. The hops remain in the aftertaste and the carbonation is abundant enough to prepare the mouth for the next sip. Despite all the big flavors in this IPA, the mouthfeel is excellent and this is an easy drinking IPA. Overall, this is an excellent beer. With Sierra Nevada's nationwide distribution, there's no excuse not to try this one if you are interested in the IPA style.
