Misc.: Beer Advocate says Amber/Red Ale, Sierra Nevada has IPA in the title so SN wins and I rated it accordingly
Poured a caramel reddish semi-clear color with three fingers of frothy off-white head. Lots of bubbles initially coming up from the bottom. Healthy amount of fairly even foamy lacing on the sides of the glass on the way down. Very good retention on the top all the way down.
Tons of hops in the nose. First got skunky resin hops, but that was replaced by floral hops and some citrus hops. A touch of grapefruit and mild tropical hops as well.
Tasted like a mild-mannered version of the smell. Floral hops really come up roses (get it?) here, followed by Simcoe hops, citrus hops and still some resin hops. Also mild tropical hops and rye hops. A mix of grapefruit and lemon as well.
Light-to-medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Rather abrupt, but bitter finish.
Just another good beer from Sierra Nevada. No surprise here. This was even better than the same kind I had on Labor Day that I did not rate. Would try it again.

I poured this beer into a ipa, it has a reddish color body with a white foamy head. The aroma has a pine smell. The taste has a pine and bitter hop taste. I also get a little malt on the back tongue. The m outhfeel is smooth and leaves a nice pine aftertaste. Overall uhh taste a darn good red ipa.
