Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. 03/09/09.
Pours a clear orange-amber color with an inch of soft beige foam. The head receded slowly leaving lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is of citrusy and piny hops and hints of malt. A bit tame, but still smells good.
Taste starts with sweet caramel and biscuit-like malt flavor. That is followed by plenty of bitter citrus and piny hops. Some grapefruit flavor as well. The taste is well balanced between the sweetness up front and the bitter finish.
Feel is smooth with ample carbonation. It's medium-bodied and leaves some stickiness around the mouth. Drinkability is decent, but it's too heavy to be sessionable.
Overall, a very solid beer. This is one of my favorite beers from Sierra Nevada.
