Beautiful clear orange copper pour into a Sierra Nevada hop tulip pint glass with a thick off white head which has excellent retention.
A bit of Bread Malt on the nose after the initial citrus hop blast. Hops continue all the way down the glass.
Serious hop presence in the first taste, a true west coast double IPA. Some malt presence, but this is a serious hop bomb with some juicy grapefruit accents
Syrupy mouthfeel but not cloying . So far, pretty easy to drink and not hot at all considering the ABV.
Damn, this is a good beer. I wish they would release this year round.
