Could not wait to try this. And it does not dissapoint to say the least....
Upon the initial pour there is a nice beige head however no lacing, no big deal...
The smell is absolutely awesome to say the least. A very fresh herbal / pine smell that seem's to develop a fruitiness toward's the end of the sniff, very much like fresh strawberries...
The taste is a seamless blend of malt and hop's, it start's off with a very fruity / caramel malt flavor that is in perfect harmony with one another. The bitterness is present however not to the point of burning you're taste bud's. A definate hop bomb but in a subtle way, not a bad thing at all. I think it's great, and really does not mimmick any any other IPA's out there, in a class of it's own... What else would you expect from Sierra Nevada. Almost forgot to mention that the carbonation level is spot on, very crisp but also very creamy, perfect.
In a world with a plethora of IPA's to choose from, this is a definate winner in my book.
This will definately be in rotation in my fridge.
Just wanted to list an update, the more I have been drinking this the better it get's. It is becoming a favorite amongst the other IPA's that I drink...
Would also like to kind of update my lacing report's as the first 6er I had, ( maybe the glass, I don't know ) did not leave any signifigant lacing, however it now leave's quite a bit, very nice. Very rich and very satisfying to say the least. I love this brew....

I gotta admit, the score the brothers gave this little pearl has me curious, my friends. I guess that's the greatest thing about beer and wine though in particular; they'll appeal differently to anyone who tries it! I wouldn't recommend this beer on a hot day or during a bbq on the porch or poolside, but if you're looking to relax in front of the tube or while pouring over whatever texts you prefer, then you may be in for a nice little treat!
