22 oz. bottle.
A - Clear deep copper colored with a huge, long lasting, fluffy off white head. Tons of crusty lacing left everywhere.
S - Big resinous and piny hops, with a touch of citrus. Bready malts and a little bit of caramelly aromas come through with the typical Sierra Nevada house flavor.
F/M - Similar to aroma with tons of piny/resinous hops. Light citrus notes. Bready malts. Light solventy alcohol in the finish. Moderately firm hop bitterness. Not as hoppy as some of the more absurd IIPAs that I've had, but still pretty firm. Dry finish with a lingering piny hop flavor. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
D - Big, flavorful, balanced, and quite tasty, this IIPA is a welcome addition to the Sierra Nevada family. Too bad it's so limited; I could drink this quite often.
