Another solid IPA from the Sierra Nevada folks. Nice addition to their special lineup, although it falls a little short compared to the Northern Hemisphere.
Pours a dark golden brown, with a finger of "fizzy" head. Carbonation is light. Hoppy aroma with notes of cherry, sugar and a little spice. Caramel notes as well.
Taste is hoppy, and a little sweet. Not quite as smooth as the Northern or Torpedo. Hops taste almost sour. Sugary finish and a little bitter.
Worth a try, but I'd rather down the Northern, Estate, Celebration and the Torpedo over this. But again, not bad.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance is a bright, transparent rust orange and pours a fluffy off-white+pink head.
Smells of citrus, floral, and slightly spicy.
Tastes slightly of pineapple, caramel, and spicy hops.
Mouthfeel is a well balance between malt and hop, slightly spicy up front with a bitter, then sweet finish.
Overall, a good IPA but nothing spectacular.

4.01/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Clear copper. Big, cream head.
Smell: Floral, citrus, alcohol, and perhaps pineapple.
Taste: Floral and citrus.
This is great. It certainly does have a fresh taste...I think. There is a good bit of alcohol
in both the smell and taste; much more than what the ABV hints. Also, I think I'm getting some malt as well as citrus rinds from the taste. Total package, this is a great brew. I would definitely get it again. For whatever reason, I'm having trouble describing it.
