Quick Review - more non-hop flavor than the typical Sierra Nevada.
Appearance - honey gold with a slight haze. Lots of an off-white head with a hard pour, slow to dissipate, leavng foamy lace as it goes away.
Smell - initially, straight pine when smelled while in the bottle. While waiting for the head to die of, the bottle takes on a bi of a malty scent.
Taste - hoppy with some malt behind it, finishing off noticeably bitter. There's something acidic and mouth clearing here. It's like the hop acid is at a high enough level to come through in the taste.
Mouthfeel - medium-thin in the mouth. The mouthfeel is surprisingly light for what you're getting here.
This could be someone's session beer. It's a bit biter for me to have too many of these.
