With all the hype and semi-limited availability, I am excited to try this beer. Coming from Sierra Nevada, I know this will be a typical hop head ale, which I'm completely all for!

Pouring this beer it is a hazy orange that quickly forms a frothy head and settles into a very clear ale. This ale laces nicely. The smell is of fresh citrus and pine. And now what I've been waiting for... tasting! It's tastes go with the smell. It is dry and very hoppy, as should be expected. This will leave your mouth feeling very dry. I enjoy this, but I wouldn't say it is on the top of my list. I'm glad to have had the opportunity to enjoy it.

Overall this is a very tastey hop-head ale!
