Poured from a bottle into a pub glass.
Appearance - a blood orange with lots of carbonation bubbles that builds a thick, frothy white head. Retention is great, lacing is adequate.
Smell - balanced hops and malts. Pine is the most noticeable in the nose.
Taste - slightly more hop forward than the nose; yet still well balanced on the palate.
Feel - hop bitterness, a nice malt presence, but not noticeably rye in nature.
Overall - as always, excellent price point from Sierra Nevada, and a nice Winter seasonal IPA!
