One of my "Happy Thanksgiving" brews and probably the one I'm most excited to try. Heard very good things from the employee about this ale.
LOOK: Clear, copper tone hits the glass. BIG, frothy cream head rests on top, lingers longer than a Cranberries song (sorry) and cakes the sides of the glass with lace. VERY nice looking beer, for sure.
SMELL: Citrus/hop bomb, which is exactly what it should be. Sort of reminds me of the beach in summer. Wheat bread and that odd, handsoap-like scent that some Sierra Nevada beers have make up the second layer. Aside from that last one, it's just a welcoming scent.
TASTE/MOUTHFEEL: Medium body. This sucker is FRESH, wit the hops just exploding on to the tongue. Citrus and grassy flavors lay the taste buds to waste while the carbonation prickles through my mouth. Cereal and grains round off the flavor before leaving the mouth with a great, bitter finish. Nice stuff. Well done!
OVERALL/NOTES: Boo-ya! Tough call between this and Northern Hemisphere as to my favorite, but regardless, Sierra Nevada has some awesome IPAs. This will have to be an annual thing for me. Worth seeking out, and worth the $9.99 price tag by a long shot!

Cracked this open on a wonderful summer night a few days back! Golden, Hoppy, Fresh, perfectly balanced! Foamy, creamy head! Year 2011. Aging in my fridge. Loved drinking, but sad, I will not be able to find this beer again. It was perfect! If I find this beer, anywhere, it will go home with me! Even, my friend liked it and he is a stout man.
