A - Pours an 1 1/2" of creamy white head that has very nice retention. As it fades, it leaves globs of lace sticking to the inside of the glass. The beer is clear with a light copper color.
S - The aroma is full or resinous hops. I get a mixture of citrus and pine with light caramel notes. No trace of the high alcohol content.
M - Medium to full in body with a resinous slightly creamy feel. The hops oils coat the inside of your mouth and don't let go.
T - The beer begins with a citrus/pine combo along with some malt sweetness. A warming alcohol flavor picks up next along with a barrage of bitter hops. Despite the alcohol being present in the taste, it's fairly subdued and works well with the beer.
Sierra Nevada crafter a very nice, big double IPA. The price is very reasonable for a 4-pack ($9.49) and it's got some nice art work.
