I am very interested to have this, because the Sierra IPA I had a few years back on draft, which was probably a test batch for this, needed a lot of work.
Pours a very clear golden orange with a sizable foam/cream head that slowly settles into a muted version of the shape of the top of your glass. Laces impressively. Smells of rose petals and freshly mowed grass. Flavor has a lot of hops, but maybe Amarillo or another one of those rough-flavored hops that mix fruit with crushed aspirin. The malt is toasted and caramelly. Feel is thick and velvety smooth. Ends a little thick and sweet, with hop flavor fading out. Finish leaves me wanting more dryness and bitterness to help drinkability.
This has a good dose of flavor hops, albeit a bit rough. Overall, it just hits the middle-of-the-road west coast IPA status.
