A: Pours a wonderful translucent amber with one full finger of tan head. The foam fades in a decent amount of time, leaving frothy ring along the edges of the glass and a few larger bubbles sitting atop the beer.

S: The nose is citrus, pine, a medium amount of malt, and a bit of vegetation. It actually reminds me of a wet hop ale. The main scent is pine, but it has a nice floral bouquet.

T: It starts off sweet with a mild bit of lemony citrus. As it moves to the middle, I get that vegetation flavor (leaves, grass, a bit of dirt). As it move tot he finish, the pine notes come on strong really bitter this beer up.

M: Medium bodied beer. Sweet and coating to start, high carbonation with an effervescent quality at times. It finishes smooth, bitter, and a but dry from all the hops.

O: Very good beer. This would make a great default beer in non "beer-geek" bars. I would drink this again. Yet again, Sierra Nevada makes a wonderful beer. I be hard pressed to object to something that they make.
