Nice copper color with very nice head and lacing for an IPA.
Aroma is of cascade hops and nothing else that I can discern - but it's the typical Sierra Nevada aroma - always good.
Taste is actually very bitter and a touch oaky. I think that the bitterness of this brew brought it down a few notches. Definitely taste the hops.
Mouthfeel is an explosion of bitterness and hoppiness that lingers long past it should. A bit below average in my view, but you definitely get a carbonation hit that brings out the bitterness nearly immediately.
Drinkability is a bit below average as well due to the bitterness of this brew. It's far more bitter than any other SN seasonal I've tried. Definitely will give a pass on this SN brew but still love their other seasonals - will pick up the Celebration when that comes out.
