A - pours clear, copper in color, with just the right amount of carbonation. Little head with no lacing.
S - very appealing smell. Floral notes and of course the aromatic hops but not overwhelming which is a good thing. Subtle is best in my opinion.
T - very smooth for what is essentially an imperial. Finishes smooth and clean with a sweet aftertaste pine, citrus, and floral notes. Alcohol is well hidden on this one.
M - once again, very smooth on the pallet with just the right amount of carbonation. Leaves your pallet with a sweet aftertaste.
O - very solid entry for Sierra Nevada. I know this craft brew has become mainstream but don't overlook this one. It's solid and I would definitely pick this one up again.

Pours hazy orange with a fluffy soft head of foam that won’t fall down and left clumps in the glass. Good lacing. Nose is strong perfume, pine and sweet citrus. The malt is bread, caramel and honey. Little soap on the nose. Very floral with a touch of yeast . Malt is pretty sweet. On the palate it greets with malt first, then a quick piney bitter then lots of perfumey floral hops. The alcohol is just a bit on the palate. A small bite from carbonation to finish it off dry and a little toasted, sticky and some resin too. I wanted to like this more than I did. It became heavy after a while and hard to drink from the oily bitter on the back palate. The hop perfume translated into the drink astringent and I didn’t care for it. Felt out of balance and like it could have used a touch more malt depth, the sweetness wasn’t full it was kind of sugary. The bitterness was sharp. Decent but I liked the SNPA better.
