64 oz growler filled about an hour ago.
A: Fantastic. Golden amber color with a tiny red-ish tint. Only the slightest amount of cloudiness. Aggressive pour into a 12 oz tall taster glass. 1 inch white head with excellent retention and very sticky lacing. I think this is the stickiest lacing I have ever seen. Its like glue on the side of the glass. Pillow-like head on edges with only a slight covering to the center. Lots of size variation in carbonation from tiny to quite large bubbles. Expectations are high.
S: Great smell but not as strong as I was expecting. Pine, grapefruit, citrus, malt background barely distinguishable. Very subtle.
T: Perfect. This beer is so balanced. The hops taste awesome. The malt is just right. The finish is very smooth and very bitter with a final bit of sweetness from the malt. I love the taste of this beer.
M: Very smooth and creamy with the hops and carbonation giving it a little bit of bite. Absolutely no indication of alcohol.
O: Wow. What an accidental score. I got this only because I scratched off the other ones on the board just because I had already had them or was not interested. Not only that but I got it at a discount. I hope they have some more left tomorrow cause I am going to kill this growler tonight. WOOOOHOOO! This is definitely a beer you want to get hold of if you can during the harvest season. Way to go Sierra Nevada!!!
