Notes/Commercial Description:
This IPA sacrifices nothing for its drinkability, flexing big time flavor and complexity. The light color disguises the depth of the malt backbone, a pillar that balances the potent whole-cones of the piney-citrus Cascade and tropical fruit-like Citra hops.

Amber/orange in color, this IPA pours out with a fluffy head of foam that leaves some nice lacing. The nose is actually rather subdued for the style, but I am picking up scents of bread, toasted malt, and some citrus fruit.

An IPA without much attitude but with a good flavor profile overall, this beer is nicely balanced between the hops and malt. The taste of bready, piney malts blend nicely with the citrus and tropical fruit taste imparted from the hops. The beer has a slight alcoholic flavor, some herbal notes, and some grassy flavors to make it more complex and interesting.

Sierra Nevada always seems to come through and this beer is no different. It is a very tasty brew, not necessarily an out-of-this-world taste, but definitely a likeable beer. The balance is better than that of other American IPA and it seems like a good intro beer for newbies to this style. It may not be around for long, so I recommend finding some if you can.

Served from Bottle into Nordic Pint Glass

A - Hazy orange with a medium head that fades slowly leaving sticky lacing all the way down. Great looking beer.

S - Citrus, Tropical Fruit finishing with hints of caramel and pine.

T - Sweet tropical/floral hop hit fading to pear and leaving a piny earthy bitterness. Very well balanced.

M - Aftertaste does not last for long meaning you want more! Medium carbonation but very smooth and refreshing.

Great beer.
