look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.
A - Pours a mostly clear deep golden color, with a two-finger head of white foam with good retention. Really nice lacing.
S - Healthy aroma of floral pine, moss, and citrus (grapefruit, tangerine)
T - Hops are forward and very herbal and earthy, almost medicinal. Malts reminiscent of graham cracker; light and with a kiss of honey sweetness. Hints of pineapple, mint, and tobacco. Malts fall just short of providing enough backbone here.
M - Medium to full bodied. Medium carbonation. Very dry, lingering finish. Slightly sticky. Suits the style well.
O - A solid offering by SN with no real flaws save a lack of originality; nothing really distinguishes it or makes me think this is superior to other offerings (Like SN's own Torpedo). I cant help but wonder why this beer in a crowded IPA marketplace when Sierra already has so many IPA's that are just as good if not superior? Seems like a little bit of a wasted effort, but I won't hesitate to finish off the rest of these in the Beer Camp pack.

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.
