Poured into a New Belgium snifter
A - Nice copper color with a decent head. Lace was present during pour only.
S - Reminds me of the estate grown IPA. Very floral and a bit sweet
T - Awesome. Big citrus sweet bitterness up front and malty bitterness at the end. Balanced if nothing else
M - Heavy up front medium finish. Exploding with bitterness and sweetness
D - May be undrinkable for the average IPA drinker. For anyone who is an IPA whore like me, very drinkable on at least an every week basis
Final thought - Sierra Nevada is a great brewery and while all their beers may not be top tier, they are always good for a bottle or 12
