look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

24 oz bottle, 2012, poured into a pint glass.

A: A very nice copper-amber-orange, that produces a wonderful white thick foamy head that lasts.

S: A nice hoppy aroma that is subtle, but still gives you nice whiffs of citrus and pine, with a slight hint of toffee.

T: A very fresh mix of citrus and pine hop flavors that don't overpower the malty goodness.

M: Chewy and creamy, and very easy to drink. The carbonation is just right for me. Went down too smooth, and was sad when the bottle was empty.

O: Excellent IPA that is well balanced. You get to experience all of the ingredients, with no one ingredient overpowering another.

I am a huge Sierra Nevada fan, and truly believe the brewery does things right. I have not been disappointed in any of the styles that I love from this brewery. So yes, I gave it 5's across the board as I love this beer.
