A - clear amber pour, 1 finger of off white head which clears up mostly but leaves a nice ring that lingers on the side of the glass throughout

S - citrus hop, grapefruit, some pine, a hint of lemon

T - big dose of hops, that citrus and pine, the bitterness comes a bit afterwards and lingers throughout, bready malt, some caramel with a hint of spice, a diminishing bitterness into a slightly dry finish

M - medium body, medium-high carbonation, crisp, clean

O - My first taste from Sierra Nevada and it was damn good. Tons of aroma and flavor yet not overpowering and very nicely balanced. I wish they sold this locally
