Meh. Did not impress. Hops were extremely lite, maltiness tastes muddled. SN has been a bit disappointing as of late.

Found a case of 22oz bottles at Costco Chico after leaving the brewery. Death asterisks at Costco. which means it will be gone soon. I recommend checking the selection at Chico Costco before stopping by the brewery. They usually have four to five offerings from Sierra Nevada. I love it, should have bought 2 but unable to taste at the brewery. Wonderful beer and a great value compared to the Pliny the Elder that I purchased last Tuesday. Both great beers but the huge price gap.

A very interesting flavor, not at all what I expected. Was my first wet hopped beer.

Bottled 9/24/14, poured into a tulip glass

A- pours a bright clear amber color with a two-finger creamy and frothy white head that seems to retain forever, eventually leaving some nice lacing behind

S- floral and herbal hop bouquet up front with notes of rose pedal and peppery herb. Notes of tangerine & green leaves with a hint of pine, pretty unique aroma

T- herbal and peppery hop flavors up front with rye-like qualities, some vegetal notes. Tangerine peel mixes with flower water & rose pedal, leafy and green finish

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a thick and foamy mouthfeel and a smooth crisp finish

O- a pretty unique hop, with a great mouthfeel to boot, very nice IPA
