4.5/5  rDev +8.2%

A - Poured into a pint glass, has a nice darker orange color. The initial head is about a finger high, which stuck around for about a minute. Very nice lacing, clings to the glass!

S - A very lovely citrus aroma with plenty of piney hops. Not much else going on, but it smells gorgeous nonetheless.

T - Tastes just about how it smells. Very hoppy, with nice citrus details. It has that recognizable Sierra Nevada taste, but with more hops, which I am all for.

M - Very, very drinkable. Smooth on the palate, with a dry finish that hangs around for a bit.

O - This is simply a wonderful IPA which I can see myself coming back to again and again. Definitely a must-have! Just beware of the 7.2% ABV ;)
