4.1/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a schooner (not the entire thing!). Didn't see a best before date.
A - it pours a deep amber with little to no head and almost no lacing
S - less hops than I expected (grassy/juniper) but also some bready malts (more than I expected)
T - much more subtle than I thought; expecting a hop bomb I found it to have a hint of juniper (slight citrus) with a much larger malt character balancing it out (maybe more like a Pale?)
M - sharply carbonated it was fairly light and didn't have much enduring bitterness
D - nice balance gives it fairly solid drinkability; not boozy - goes down easy
Decent beer - less of a hop bomb than I thought it might be (keeping with Sierra's style in this regard), and a good solid drink!
