4.25/5 rDev +2.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
A little off-white head covers a visibly carbonated, rich, deep copper brew. Smells of pine and soapy hops, caramel malts, and some red fruity yeast scent. It tastes of ruby red puckering grapefruit. A few sips in, the circular lacing is spectacular. There's a bitter-sour hop aftertaste, but malts in the mid-mouth adequately balance out this extra IPA. Some earthy and roasty flavors ground soaring scents of an excellent hop mix. The carbonation is milder than I expected, just a little tingly and perfect for the beer and style. Medium, pleasant mouth feel.
This is a great IPA, with a fuller and stronger version of the Sierra Nevada signature, most brilliantly displayed by SNPA. Love it.

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.

4.04/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
12 oz from a $10 12 poured into a tulip glass. Born on 6/9/14
A - Ruby red with orange highlights, one finger head that recedes to thick lace ring.
S - Floral, grapefruit/citrus, biscuit
T - More of the same. Very flowery with moderate citrus, and a dry, bitter finish.
M - Perfect level of carbonation. The overall feel is a tad thin, but keeps it refreshing to balance the dry finish.
O - I had this a few months ago out of mix pack and was mildly dissapointed ( the 12 pack was 4-5 months and apparently was stored upside down). This was more in line with what I remembered. A good go to IPA that is a great value (esp at 10 fer 12)
