Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a chalice. 2014 bottle.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Huge four finger off white head with good retention. Leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell: An earthy, fruity, and spicy hop forward aroma with hints of citrus, grass, and pine. Upfront scent of earthy and floral hops with dank hints of grass and spicy pine resin. Citrus hop hints of grapefruit, lemon, orange peel, tangerine, and melon. Solid malt backing with sweet hints of caramel, biscuit, grains, and yeast. A very good earthy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a ripe, bitter, earthy, spicy, and fruity hop driven taste with notes of pine, grass, and citrus. Floral and earthy hop presence with strong notes of pine resin and fresh cut grass. Citrus notes of grapefruit, orange peel, tangerine, lemon, and melon. Good backing presence of pale malt with notes of caramel, grains, biscuit, and yeast. Nicely bitter and juicy. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Oily, juicy, and pretty drying. Somewhat chewy.

Overall: Another very good hoppy ale from Sierra Nevada. Good mix of earthy and juicy hop flavors with a solid caramel malt backing.
