12 ounce bottle -> Sierra Nevada balloon glass

This beer pours up an amazing crystal clear deep copper with a nice light tan head about one finger in height, decent retention, and large amounts of delicate and elaborate lacing left on the side of the glass. The smell is very bready and earthy, with a little hint of spiciness. Taste is very satisfying with an initial citrus fruitness follwed by a soicy hop finish. Mouthfeel is neither thick nor thin, but nice and satisfying. If Sierra Nevada makes a bad beer I've yet to have one.
