Had this on 2012-02-18 in Marietta, PA at McCleary's
A - Very clear, Amber-orange with a 1-finger head and decent lacing.
S - Mild orange flesh, floral hops and pine. Pleasant but not extraordinary.
T - Medium roasted malt with light caramel sweetness. Bold and bright grapefruit juice, orange rind, pine. Bitterness is nicely aggressive and lasts long into the aftertaste.
M - Smooth and crisp with light-medium body and medium-high carbonation.
O - I had this after a 13-mile hike on a warm, winter day and I'm here to tell you, this really hit the spot. It's not the best "Extra Pale Ale"/IPA but it satisfies the needs of this hop-head.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass, from a 12 pk. Could not find best by/born on date. This is my second time trying this beer. I did not like the beer the first time, so I held out on reviewing so I could give it another chance. I am glad I did.
The beer pours the typical clear amber color of an IPA, but maybe slightly darker than the norm. In the smell, I get a good mix of citrus and piney hops. Smells like a well-balanced IPA.
Plenty of hops as promised, but more of the piney bitter hops than the citrusy hops. Still a very drinkable above average IPA that is probably more hoppy than the average IPA too, and you can't beat the price that Sierra Nevada sells this for.
