Bottle into a pint glass. Just like you'd get it at a bar where Sierra Nevada is the best thing on the list.
A: Bright orange with golden highlights, strong carbonation bubbles rising, murky with a thick finger tan head. This is more impressive than I thought it would be.
S: Strong pine hops, some citrus notes of orange and a light biscuit malt to the nose.
T: Pine is overpowering any of the citrus. Bitterness is quick and lasting. A little warming loosens this one up, and some more grass flavors come through. Balances out as well with time.
M: Medium bodied, with plenty of tingle. Nice slick mouth coating.
D: At $8.49 a sixer year around, this ain't a bad go-to IPA. Competes well with SweetWater IPA, which finds itself in the same price bracket. Not quite the glory that is Celebration ale, but good.
