This is the best beer for the buck. Beautiful amber color, great head retention. Nice sticky lacing. Smell is outstanding. Almost instantaneously I get a kick in the face of hop aroma ask I crack the bottle open. I get pine, citrus, flowers,- a field of hops in my nose. I can also smell malt, I dont know how they accomplished that, but its there and its great. Mouthfeel is great, not too thin, not too thick, although for the ABV I would almost expect it to be thicker. Everything about this beer is awesome, its easy drinking, alcohol is non existent in the taste. Its well balanced for an "extra" IPA, the malt really shines and I love that about it. Sierra Nevada out did themselves with this one. My go-to brew for sure. I love this beer.

Definitely our go-to beer after a long day of work or school to finish off the day. Always served in a snifter very cold. Very piney, hoppy flavor with a crispy finish. overall caramel color and pleasantly bitter. Sierra Nevada did a great job on this one.
