I went into the beer store to pick up some Celebration Ale and was thrilled to find this one, as I had been looking forward to trying it. It does not disappoint.
Pours a copper color with moderate head. Leaves some nice lacing on the glass and a light layer of foam atop the beer. Strong hop and citrus tones and a slight hint of alcohol. A nicely balanced aroma, as I expected more of a hoppy aroma with this being an "extra" IPA. The taste follows the aroma. Pine and hops up front give way to the citrus and bitterness. Noticable grapefruit presence, and of course nice and hoppy, though the hops are not overdone. Medium bodied mouthfeel and leaves a little stickiness in the mouth. Drinks real easy. Another winner from Sierra Nevada!

4.29/5 rDev +3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Rich cooper color, clear. A creamy beige two finger head when poured; dies down relatively fast leaving an thin uneven coating of foam on the surface of the beer and lots of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell: Slightly sweet and citrusy. Mild aroma of malt. Smooth hops. An extremely slight pine scent. Nice and enticing.
Taste: Citrus (grapefruit. lemon) without being acidic. Delicious mild hoppy flavor for the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light body. Lots of mild carbonation. Ever so slight dry finish.
Overall: An excellent IPA. I would gladly drink this again. The perfect amount of hops with a delicious flavor. Refreshing.
Serving type: can
