A - Looks so good I almost don't want to drink it. Almost! Pours a nice two-finger head. Deep amber.
S - Citrus and alcohol but I've got a cold so I'm not smelling good... so to speak.
T - Oh boy, this is so tasty! What a beautifully balanced beer: very hoppy but not over the top. It dominates the malt but not by much. Reminds me a little of Surly Wet but not as extreme as Wet.
M - Really coats the mouth and tongue with resiny hops and caramel malt. It almost like the mouth demands that you let it linger before swallowing.
O - One of best flippin' beers I have tasted. Period. I am a confirmed hophead so this is right down my alley. Good work, Sierra, you people waited and got it right. Do not alter your recipe and start making more of this excellent elixir!
