Rich amber color with a very thick, creamy, chunky white head. Aromatic smell of citrus and spice with an undercurrent of caramel or crystal malts. Mouthfeel is smooth as glass and medium bodied with little noticeable overt carbonation. Taste is a finely balanced combination of fresh bread notes all wrapped up in a pronounced yet smooth hop bitterness.

An excellent AIPA. Smooth and delicious with well-balanced characteristics that develop wonderful tastes and feel with impressive quietude yet leaving you very impressed at the end. Damn near unforgettable!!!

Right now is the time that the Southern Hemisphere Harvest is in the market. but I was able to grab the very last of this beer I could find, dating 2011.

A: Nice bright amber color with a 1-inch bright white head that stick around awhile.

S: Smell is of floral and fruity hops, slight hint of citrus and honey with some grassy notes.

T: Wow, this taste brings a kick at the front, slight coriander, honey and some hop bitterness with a dry bready finish at the end. Kind of reminds me of a Saison.

M: Cant see too much carbonation beyond the haze of the appearance but this beer is very drinkable.

O: Sierra Nevada never seems to dissapoint, this beer is bursting with flavor and I could honestly have 6 of these. Its just too bad they are $5 plus my way!
