2 oz from "Lifesource" Salem. $2.12 Clear orange IPA,typical, with a robust tight,creamy white head. Great wafts of hoppiness in the aromas resiny,floral,herbal..seemingly fresh Very bitter..mostly herbal,some fruitiness way in the back..surprisingly the malts are strong enough..caramel,hay,nuts..wow For all the terrific hop action this is quite well balanced on the tongue and the large alcohol content not really noticed..very well made! Great beer fabulous

Poured into a shaker pint. Looks inviting. Smells inviting. So I must go in
A: poured a 1 finger head that didn't stay long. Color was a foggy clouded amber Orange
S: pine grapefuit and citrus! Wow! Smell like a hop bomb!!!!
T: and the taste follows the nose! No bs here...a pallet smasher...more pine coming though than anything else...Not a bad thing though...alcohol is very well hidden.
M: pretty mouthfilling to me...the hop oil kinda just sticks around like the beautiful lacing in thr sides of my glass. But smooth as well. I can't stop reaching for another drink!
O: a great beer for the hop heads. One of my favorites. Well worth the wait...great job sierra nevada you haven't let me down thus far!!!
