Boy do I love Sierra Nevada products! Another solid offering by the guys in Chico! Poured from the bottle into my Great Divide Cervoise glass. Excellent head retention and a nice lacing character!
The nose gets better as the beer warms a bit, even at cooler temps, I get a nice hop (herbal/piney) and malt character.
The taste as you would expect from an Extra IPA as they call it is hops and then hops with a nice malt character (caramel) to round out and soften the hopiness.
The mouthfeel is nice with nothing harsh about the brew. No annoying hop bitterness or aftertastes. In other words a well executed beer!
Drinkability is good, but with a higher ABV for this single IPA style, you would have to be careful, plus the hops after bit will do a number on your palate!
Again nice work from the guys out west. This is one of go too beers...I am surprised I have not written it up earlier!

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.
