A nice 24 ounce bottle.
It poured a wonderful dark ruddy brown but clear. Head is thick and lacing is great. Head is off whitel
Nose is very spicy and some pine as well.
Taste is pine with grapefruit but there is a good body with malt under tones. Finish is good citrus rind overload. This is not all hops, the balance is there. This is the way I like it.
Mouth feel is well carbonated and not over the top. The beer is really enjoyable for me. I am impressed with Sierra Nevada. A "large" brewery with great quality.

Poured from a 24 oz bottle into a New Belgium Ranger IPA pint glass.
A: Deep amber body. White, rocky head. Cratered as it slowly receded, leaving a nice heavy lace no t he glass, with a substantial head layer remnant on the beer surface.
S: A very outdoorsy botanical scent dominates, smells like hay and pine. Citrusy scents complement the main aroma.
T: Hoppy...the pine and straw dominate the flavor. Bitterness suppresses the sweetness of the malts all the way through. The malts are there, just well hidden. One dimensional.
M: Very thick, syrupy texture. Carbonation is not excessive, seems well matched to the mouthfeel. Despite the seemingly heavy character, is surpassingly crisp.
O: Not a terribly complex beer. But that's okay for this brew, because going in this is a hopped up brew and on that...it delivers with a purpose. This is a nice brew to sit back and enjoy on a mild spring day. The hops used impart a very spring like character and make this a really neat beer.
