look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: A clear golden amber color. Lacing stuck masterfully to the glass as I slowly enjoyed this brew. Enjoyed out of a tall pilsner type glass.

Smell: Caramelized malt aroma. This aroma was much more subdued then I expected. Hops were not as present as I would have hoped.

Taste: Subtle. Once again the caramel flavor dominates this brew. Hops are there but I don't think this bottle was as fresh as it could have been. The pine flavors of this IPA are very pleasant. Although not as fresh as its been, the taste is very well rounded and balanced.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel was not what I hoped it would be. The hops or pine flavor did not stick around like I hoped. Going down was definitely very smooth though.

Overall: Really solid. I wish I would have had this right when it came out to get the full effect of the design of this beer. Sierra Nevada makes some of the best beer around, their high end stuff really can go toe to toe with anyone.

22oz bottle poured into a Ommegang chalice glass.

Appearance- A hazy reddish color with both yellow and brown hues. Lots of carbonation straming from the bottom of the glass creating a solid 2 finger froathy head that is cloud like in color.

Smell- Tons of juicy citrus and pine. Specifically Grapefruit, lemon and lime.

Taste- Earthy hops are most prevalent. Small amounts of pine and citrus almost make appearances but still has a long cloying earthy hop finish.

Mouthfeel- Very excellent. It starts out very creamy but also had great carbonation to make it easy on the pallate.

Overall- Tons of hops with mostly earthy like ones. I would like a litlle more citrus or grapefruit and even some more pine in the taste profile for a better balance.
