White thick head with tons of bubbles and copper color.. smell is grape fruit, pine and sweet toasted malt.. flavor you get toasted malt, sharp bitterness, fruit, pepper, bread.. medium body.. very good and the alcohol is well hidden.

Rock solid IPA ... the 16 oz. can four pack is a super IPA choice. Great beer from the pale experts at Sierra Nevada.

A: Golden yellow and orange. Lacing all over.

S: Not a lot here (I don't think). I don't have the best nose...

T: Those whole-cone hops really shine through. Excellent hoppy taste. Also has more of a malt backbone than the pale ale. I get some sweet candy and caramel coupled with crisp pine and citrus.

M: Medium and smooth.

O: Great beer. I love how I can buy this basically anywhere along with the pale ale.
