3.95/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 24oz bottle into a pint glass
Brewed in late april, a little over a month old

A- Pours a hazy cloudy amber with a finger and a half of off white foam. Great retention and lacing

S- Malt is what stands out the most. Strong hops from the behind. Citrus and other floral notes are there. However due to the logistics of the hops used it’s the first time I’ve smelled it and am at a loss to describe it

T- Very strong and smooth. I’ve heard the hops have a spice to them, which I find to be more of a nice tang. Mild caramel malts are very well represented and the foundation of the beer.

M- Little carbonation with strong bitterness that lands on the back of the tongue. Very nice dry finish

O- As always, a quality brew from Sierra Nevada. Made even better by the appreciation of the lengths they go through to get fresh hops all the way from new Zealand back to America, dried, and brewed in ‘a little over a week.’ Very impressive and very easy to drink. Looking forward to this years Northern harvest

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: a little cloudy dark orange amber with good off white head and ok lacing
S: smells kinda odd to me, kind of a little spicy and piney with some malt at the end
T: taste is what makes this beer, its very well balanced and super easy to drink. Got a nice spicy and hop taste to it with some sweet malt lingering and a great slightly bitter after taste
M: good mouthfeel but i suck at reviewing mouthfeel

O: for taste is probably in my top 10 wish it was easier to find as its a great price and easy to drink
