Clear copper pour with with decent head and lacing. Not a huge nose but hints of pine and caramel are present. Really nice resiny, hoppy pine bite with just a hint of fruity orange and caramel malt. Well balanced and hugely drinkable for such a readily available and affordable beer. Sierra Nevada has come up with another classic. Maybe not the best IPA, but with all things considered, I'll always have this stocked in my beer fridge. I'm already a huge Sierra Nevada fan, but now they've got me for life. Bravo Sierra Nevada!

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.
