Poured into a pint glass.
Prior to pouring, I had no idea what type of beer this was going to be. The bottle does not let on and I like that. After pouring, my initial sniff brought up aromas of honey, grapefruit, and pineapple - absolutely wonderful. An assertive, bitter hoppiness dominates the palate at first with a touch of oiliness. This is followed by a really enjoyable grapefruit juice/rind flavor that finishes crisp. There is a good amount of carbonation that offsets the hop oil well making the mouthfeel enjoyable. Sierra Nevada is a company that seems to always put out good beers of high quality. This is no different - an easy drinking American IPA with a moderate alcohol content making it easier to have more than 1 in an evening. Highly recommended.
