What a treat from start to end. A Sierra Nevada distributor threw me and my team a few bottles today and this was among the best.
The pour was very pleasing. Great great copper/auburn hue with a big 'ol creamy head that stays put. Good lookin' girl.
I enjoyed the nose on this, hoppy but not over the top with a blend of sweetness and little tiny baby bit piney. Very pleasant.
Brass tacks (Copper tacks here?) What a rich taste. The hop profile is clear immediately but give it a second and that sweetness makes all the difference. I appreciate that they didn't go over the top with the hops. the bottle's description is spot on "Fresh Hop Ale." Boom. Drink it.
Solid finish too. It doesn't linger too long uninvited.
But don't take my word for it! ( I'm thinking of a sign off line, Reading Rainbow did that didn't it? Lavar Burton thought of everything)
