Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest poured a deep amber color with a cream colored head. The head thinned into wisps but never completely went away. The smell was excellent with the hops being at the forefront of the aroma and the taste. The brew has a spicy nose with a subtle hint of caramel. The flavor profile is exceptional for an APA. Very hoppy up front with spicy notes and a lingering hop aftertaste that compliments the sweetness on the back of the tongue. This beer has a nice mouthfeel, not watery or thick. This beer is very drinkable if you pace yourself so to not be overcome by its 7% ABV. Overall an excellent offering from Sierra Nevada! To give a con for this brew; I think bottle conditioning it would have added a very nice touch and made the complexity of this beer even more prevalent.
