A: Classic copper and after a vigorous pour an inch and 1/2 of snowy white head. Lacing is fine, delicate and significant which points to a superior beer.
S: Cascade hop resins with a pine and citrus twist to it. This combining with the malt, probably caramel, results in a distinct Sierra Nevada hoppy sweetness. Very pleasant.
T: A perfect melding of hops, malt, citrus and spice. The hops dominate but this beer screams perfection. The balance is INCREDIBLE. The hops do not over power, but are the main attraction. Resins are noted in the background as well. Superb.
M: Medium bodied mouthfeel with a higher than average carbonation. This was well thought out though as the carbonation seems perfect for this beer. The overwhelming hop presence does lead to a sense of dryness at the end but is welcomed for this style of ale.
D: This hoppy beer is drinkable, but the style is not made for pounding.
